The Circle (2017) **REVIEW**

We live in a era of where social media have a lot of power. Information can be spread like wild fire and we also find out what we all had for dinner. I heard about ‘The Circle’ book and got interested since it’s aspect is the power of social media but then Emma Watson & Tom Hanks was doing a film out of it.

‘The Circle’ is about Mae getting a job at a huge tech company called The Circle, she’s so excited. They provide her with a room to stay. It’s a massive place and basically got all you need within the walls, you never need to leave really. One day as she sits doing her job two people come up o her asking why she hasn’t set up her social media profile yet, it was part of her job to be on social media and talk to co-workers. But one day that backfires when she shares her friends lanterns and he is being called for deer killer. The lanterns are made out of horns but he gets the horns from others who hunt. It goes so far he need to live in woods to hide. Power of social media.

One day Mae agrees to do something I would never do. To always wear a camera to live record her everyday life for everyone to see. It becomes a huge success. But with that also comes pain. She’s starting to lose friends and family due to the fact she can’t talk to them without them feeling uneasy by the constant filming. After her friends death she feels that something is wrong with The Circle and is determined to find out what, for everyone to see and.. to film it all for all her viewers.

Yes, I would say it’s important to see this film and it’s available on Netflix. You see the real power of social media and how quick jump on the band wagon of filming EVERYTHING and put it out there for everyone to see. In the film they believe that information should be available for ALL, all sorts of information. But that, I don’t agree on. It can be dangerous to know absolutely everything. There are some things we should not know, knowing everything doesn’t always mean good.

Actors: Emma Watson, Tom Hanks, Ellar Coltrane, Glenne Headly, Bill Paxton, Karen Gillan, Nate Corddry, Mamoudou Athie, John Boyega and many more.

Jack Reacher **REVIEW**

Usually I’m not a fan of Tom Cruise but him in this movie it’s like made for him. Think this is the only movie I can watch him in. We all have our likes and dislikes and we can’t like every actor/actress out there. But this movie Jack Reacher is actually quite good. Story line is better than you’d think. I would def. recommend this to anyone who is interested in action/crime movie

Jack Reacher is a military detective who is trying to solve a case with a former military sniper who randomly shoot 5 victims in daylight. But the thing is Reacher doesn’t think he was the one who did it and now he’s curious and have no choice to dig deeper in the case. He is trying to find out who ordered to jump him at a bar when he came to the city and what does the victims have in common with each other. It won’t be easy for Jack to get answers but he will always find them.

The movie is based on a novell written by Lee Child. You see actors like Tom Cruise, Rosamund Pike, Richard  Jenkins, David Oyelowo, Werner Herzog, Jai Courtney and many more.
