"The Social Network" by Yojimbo

Covering the rise of Mark Zuckerberg, the creator of Facebook and the resulting lawsuits, The Social Network is kind of like a Boogie Nights for dorks, showing how the phenomenon of "social networking" conquered the globe and made billionaires out of the young dotcommers involved. The cast are uniformly excellent, showing a warts and all account of the people involved; there are no "heroes" here, just a bunch of kids who had an intellect that made them capable of changing the world yet ironically was a massive handicap when it came to making normal human connections. Zuckerberg doesn't seem evil exactly, just a guy who thinks of himself as a rebel and pioneer, yet has spent his life and achievements shaking a fist at the world in general (and opposite sex in particular) because he wasn't ...

The Social Network review

Harvard University student Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) is dumped by his girlfriend Erica Albright, which inspires him to produce an on-campus website called Facemash. His friend Eduardo (Andrew Garfield) help finance Mark's next project, an online social networking website exclusive to Harvard University students called The Facebook. Eduardo and Mark arrange a meeting with Napster co-founder Sean Parker (Justin Timberlake). One of the best lines from Parker - "We lived on farms, then we lived in cities, and now we're going to live on the internet!"

The soundtrack was hip, performances sincere and screenplay just astounding. If only it's plot was more factual. Maybe the director inquired from the founder before creating the picture and better character background for the bo...

The Social Network review

2010 has been a good year for movies. There have been some truly groundbreaking works of art and movies which have set the bar high for action and drama alike. Bear that in mind when I tell you that The Social Network outshines all of them. This thinking may come heavily opposed but the fact is that you're not likely to see another movie as perfectly cast, written, acted or directed for a long time, and it's been a long time since we have. It is based upon the book The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook, The Social Network revolves around the making of one of the biggest websites of all time. This would be Facebook, and it also focuses on it's maker, Mark Zuckerberg.

One of the best things about this movie is Aaron Sorkin's script. He is the writer of A Few Good Men, and...

There's no way you can't watch this.

I never cared about FB. A year ago, I just created an account. Started using it this year. Now, from a technical point of view, this app is pure perfection. I mean, hands up, the thing is close to AI. Reading and learning from 500mill ppl
On the other hand. marky mark suckerberg owns us. yeah. he owns you, and me. everything we write on FB, every picture. He owns it.
Now, on that premise, a smart fella writes a book, and some oportunists see the good side of it, and in record time, (think about how many scientists, muscians, religious and politicals leaders, influential ppl in human history didn't ever have a bio pic) marky has his own flick. I mean, with all that in mind, the flick is something you have to see.

Technical is simple, and there is where is its complexity. Some cool tri...

can't believe how much I liked this

I was beyond blown away by this movie, mainly probably due to how bad I thought it would be when I heard about it. I know it may not be a true account but the screenplay was excellent and while he might not do an exact copy of zuckerburg eisenberg does amazing here. The character he portrayed in this story is done excellently and really really works.

This reminded me alot of blow minus for the drugs but just the excellent story telling of the rise to success and the (all be it in here minor) fall from grace. As much as I couldn't possibly see the interest in this movie when it was being made I am more than pleasantly surprised. Countless friends kept telling me to rent it and that I'd love it (me being a computer nerd) and I'm glad I finally gave it. Great story, get passed the whole ...

It may deserve best picture!

I knew I would have to watch this eventually to be ready for the Oscars at all, but I didn't want to, assumed it would be overrated, etc. I was pleasantly suprised! It feels weird to call the Facebook movie tha movie of my generation, but I can't think of anything that so perfectly captures the zeitgeist (although at times the back-biting yuppie greed seems more at place in the late 80s). But by making the focus not Facebook, but the difficulty of making a sincere connection and the desires and drives that cause us to betray friendships, the movie becomes almost timeless. It moves quickly and is written and directed flawlessly. Jesse Eisenberg's Zuckerberg is a hell of a lot more likeable than the real one. While it may not be the wrenching human drama of Winter's Bone or the stunning vis...

The Anti-Social Network

Despite being constantly marketed as "the Facebook Movie", the Social Network is so much more. David Fincher's bravura direction and Alan Sorkin's tight script look directly at technology's affect on modern society. While the story definitely seems one of simply betrayal and greed, it must also be mentioned the importance of person to person connections in the film. Zuckerberg's unsympathetic "asshole" of a protagonist is shown as being completely unable to sustain friendships as he can not connect with anyone properly. On the surface it is a powerful drama of greed and selfishness, on a deeper level it is about the gradual destruction of man by technology. For this reason, I believe The Social Network is one of (if not THE) Best film of the year.

Gentlemen of Harvard

"The Social Network" is a history movie of the biggest social networking site at this time-Facebook.

This movie has received many praises. Everyone appreciates this 2-hour drama. I DO, TOO. This is one of best movies I have seen. This is a good movie, yes it is, but a "great" one? uhmm. I can't say it is. I love it because of the story of best friends Mark and Eduardo and not the founding of Facebook. The characters of other three who were claiming to be the owner of Facebook had become irrelevant in the end. I mean, the story could go on without their characters having too much exposure.

What I enjoy the most on this movie is that actors are young. well, i kinda felt that this is such a true to life story.

I'm sure, this film will be remarkable.

Not a generation-defining film, at least not yet

David Fincher has questioned parts of society in many of his films. He does this again in The Social Network by asking the reason for pursuing wealth or what the point of being successful is. This is not his best work, but it goes along perfectly with his portfolio.

There are really no flaws in the film. Aaron Sorkins script is paced perfectly for David Fincherís direction. The acting is superb, from Jesse Eisenberg to even Justin Timberlake.
Something Fincher has done well over the years is his use of characters. Sometimes when a character had been used by a movie, a director has a hard time letting them go and tries to give them sentimental goodbyes to the audience. With this movie, people come and go as they do in real life. The leads experiences with people end badly and we sho...

. . . And Turn It Into My Ping Pong Room

There were so many things to like about this movie, its almost sickening. First and foremost, the creation of Facebook, a worldwide phenomenon, is a perfect story to tell, especially in an age where information is really the only weapon and entertainment we have. Director David Fincher combines successfully the techno-biopic with personal characterizations and a very suspense-filled aura that fills the theatre as you watch. Actors Jesse Eisenberg and Andrew Garfield are very fine in their portrayals of people we haven't really gotten to know yet, but are making headlines as much as they are making friends. Justin Timberlake is stellar as Sean Parker, inventor and founder of Napster, which is deservedly Supporting Actor Oscar material, hands down. Aron Sorkin's writing has very finely...
