GoG: Movies Week 1 The Social Network


The Social Network (2010) PG-13

Tim’s  Review:

This quick-paced story about the origins of Facebook is a smart, mildly witty, and generally fun film to watch.  I have to say that I enjoy stories about smart people who use their skills and brains to succeed, and this movie hits that mark pretty cleanly, as well as making a few pointed social commentaries.  I liked the job Jessie Eisenberg did with the Zuckerberg roll, and I enjoyed the interjection of future litigation  between scenes in the movie.  As far as the story goes, I probably couldn’t have believed in some of the characters had I not actually seen them in the news months ago.  (ingenious publicity, maybe? lol)  Oh, and until I did a little research on IMDB, I had no idea that the Winklevoss twins were played by the same guy! That’s just awesome.

Overall, I enjoyed the movie and will most likely watch it again.  I give it a solid three stars.

Tim's Rating ★★★☆☆
