All Facebook Users Should See ‘The Social Network’

Hi boys and girls!

I hope that everyone is enjoying their weekend as much as I am. As planned, I saw The Social Network today, and I have to give David Fincher a lot of props for directing a pretty good movie. Beginning from the days when Mark Zuckerberg was still a young sophomore at one of the world’s most prestigious institutions, Harvard University, The Social Network is both dark and comedic.

If this movie is an accurate portrayal of Mark Zuckerberg and the founding of Facebook, then I don’t know what to think. All I can say is that I now understand why Mark Zuckerberg is pissed. In the movie, he’s a social outcast with a serious cry for attention. Not to mention, he’s also a backstabbing friend and thief.

Justin Timberlake, Jesse Eisenberg, and Andrew Garfield

Jesse Eisenberg, who plays Zuckerberg, was genius at maintaining the overall tone of the film. While watching The Social Network, I really felt bad for the guy. I mean, how can anyone live with tons of knowledge and money, but with no friends? As far as the other actors, I thought that Justin Timberlake held his own as Sean Parker, the founder of Napster and part owner of Facebook. However, the stand out performances in my opinion were from Andrew Garfield and Armie Hammer, who played Eduardo Saverin (Zuckerberg’s ex-best friend) and the Winklevoss twins (“originators” of the Facebook idea) respectively.

Armie Hammer

Side note: It’s so funny how the movies can still trick us. During the movie, the other girls I was with and I commented on the hotness level of Armie. At the time, we had no idea that he was only one man! lol Not to mention, Armie Hammer is apparently the heir to the Arm and Hammer fortune. Say whaaaaat?! Where’s my Armie!  lol jk

ANYWAYS, if you haven’t seen The Social Network, go check it out. I think it’s worth the 12 bucks. As for all the Oscar buzz surrounding it, I am not completely convinced yet that the movie should take home any awards. With that said, we know how Hollywood and the Academy are. Once they’ve chosen their favorite front runners, it doesn’t matter what any of us think. Sad, but true.

Film Fridays: Facebook’s Founders

Hi everyone!

This post will be very short because I have to leave for work in like 5 minutes…lol With that said, everyone should go check out “The Social Network,” the story of how Facebook came to be, this weekend.  Hopefully, I will be seeing this movie tomorrow afternoon. As mentioned in an earlier post, “The Social Network” has already mustered up a lot of Oscar buzz this awards season. Regardless of the Oscar buzz, I am just excited to see what exactly Mr. Timberlake has been up to. Justin has almost disappeared from the music industry. Well, not really…BUT he hasn’t released a new album in years! Anyone think he should?

Anyways, go check out “The Social Network.” After I see it, I will give my two cents. 🙂

Film Fridays: Mark Your Calendars for The Social Network

Well folks, another week has ended.

Ever since moving to LA, I feel like my life has completely flown by. Where did my college years and summer go?! Lol Anyways, I blame movies for allowing my summer to go by so quickly. With a new movie release every weekend, my sunny weekends all blurred into one giant movie fest.

Anyways, there’s not too much being released this particular weekend, but one movie  to look out for in the near future is The Social Network, starring Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake, Brenda Song, Rooney Mara, and a few other younger stars.

The Social Network has been getting a lot of Hollywood buzz. People are very excited to see this film in Tinseltown. With that said, now that I’m living in LA, the very place where movies are made, I can no longer tell what the buzz is across the rest of the country. However, I do know that everyone is practically a Facebook user. And, with all of the controversies surrounding Mark Zuckerberg, the social networking site’s founder, who wouldn’t want to see the story of about how Facebook came to be?

p.s. Apparently, Mr. Zuckerberg is not too thrilled about having a movie based off of his life in theaters. What’s wrong Zuckerberg? Afraid we all might learn the truth? lol

The Social Network comes out October 1st. 🙂

Side Note: The Town, Easy A, Machete, The American, and even Inception should all still be playing in a theater near you. 😉
