I don’t have much to offer other than my own opinions on things.
Because of this and the fact that I hate most of the human race. I have a hard time getting the motivation to share my thoughts and opinions with a group of people that I have nothing but distaste for.
I think of people, and my mouth instantly starts to salivate, because I’m going to throw up at the very thought of most humans.
Disgusting putrid race of creatures. I hate most of you. The lucky few that I call my friends, are still fucked.
With that said, I watched The Social Network last night. Let me tell you, I felt Jesse Eisenberg was amazing, I felt like I could relate to the character of Marc Zuckerberg on a number of different levels.
When you think about a movie about Facebook.. You think.. “wow, really, already? too soon.. facebooks fuckin gay”
That’s what I thought at least. I am one of the many people that nay say everything facebook but for some reason still use the fucking thing.
The Social Network is actually not as much about Facebook as it is about the young brilliant minds surrounding the inception of social networking and the inevitable lawsuits that piled up onto Zuckerberg after Facebook became global.
Amazing acting all around the board. Jesse Eisenberg really hit his A game here, along with Justin Timberlake who plays Napster founder, Sean Parker, who still owns 7% of facebooks shares.
The film plays out like a college frat party film, animal house for computer geniuses. Not much of this aspect of the film is true to life, from what i’ve read but it definitely adds some gusto to the film. That gusto is accompanied by a fucking bad ass soundtrack put together by none other than NIN front man Trent Reznor. Hard pounding and subtle industrial tracks make the atmosphere of the film that much more devitalized.
All in all, this one is a keeper. Definitely lacking in the excitement department. I can see this turning out much like last years over hyped Up In the Air, with George Clooney, who, at the time of its release, had only to go pick up his statue as far as most critics were concerned. Up In the Air ended up winning nothing, and was bashed for being a little bit to pretentious of itself. I think thats what The Social Network is doomed to be. Another attempt at a few statues for Fincher and crew. The problem with the film come awards season, isn’t that they didnt do a good enough job. Because they did. It’s because True Grit, will undoubtedly win everything available and be hailed as the years best film. The Coen Brothers can do no wrong, and I honestly believe that if anyone deserves the Oscar back to back its my main man Jeff Bridges..
Either way, what this movie lacks in excitement and fact. It makes up for in Photography, sound and acting.
Worth the watch, even once.
Who ever wins whatever awards this awards season, we all know that the actual winner should be INCEPTION. Thats all im gonna say about that.
Go check out The Social Network, if you like doing things illegally there is a really decent DVD Screener online of the film. Download it, or go to the cinema, id say its worth your time.
