Movie Reviews

Movie Review from EmpireOnline.com

Since making his debut with the disastrous Alien 3, David Fincher has struggled to find material worthy of his indisputable technical talent. This is nothing new; after Stanley Kubrick released Barry Lyndon in 1975 his assistant recalled hearing the nightly thud of books hitting the wall, until at last there was silence: Stanley had picked up Stephen King’s The Shining, and the rest, of course, was history. Like Kubrick, Fincher has dabbled in a variety of genres too, but after the mixed reception afforded Benjamin Button, a respectable but strangely lightweight Oscar bid, The Social Network seems an unusual choice, even for him.

Movie Review from TotalFilm.com

“Every creation myth needs a devil,” notes one of Mark Zuckerberg’s attorneys as the Facebook creator resigns himself to legal defeat. The Social Network is the story of one man’s God complex igniting his demonisation. It’s what happens when anarchy is assimilated – how rebellion gets contorted into money. Facebook began as a popularity contest and, beneath the six-year digital limescale of Pokes and Likes and earnest Comments and ranty Wall postings, it still is. Writer Aaron Sorkin skewers Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) as a talented hacker/prankster who took someone else’s good idea and made it better.

Movie Review from Hollywood.com

You may have heard critics and advertisers tout The Social Network, David Fincher’s finger-pointing film about how Facebook was harvested from the halls of Harvard and turned into a billion dollar business, as “the movie of the decade” or “a generation-defining film.” This kind of praise has led the entertainment journalism collective to liken it to true staples of cinema like Citizen Kane and The Graduate. In terms of relevance to its audience, those are fair if overreaching statements. The film depicts its teenage characters with unflinching pragmatism as it weaves the nasty web of deception and betrayal that is the story of the social media juggernaut.

Movie Review from Guardian.co.uk

From the first sentence, the first word, the first nervily in-drawn breath, this compulsively watchable picture announces itself as the unmistakable work of Aaron Sorkin. His whip-smart, mile-a-minute dialogue made The West Wing deeply addictive on TV, and after uncertain works such as Charlie Wilson’s War and the strange, small-screen drama Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip – in which Sorkin’s distinctive, faintly martyred seriousness was bafflingly applied to the backstage shenanigans of a fictional television comedy – this writer is triumphantly back on form. He’s found an almost perfect subject: the creation of the networking website Facebook.

Movie Review from TimeOut.com

Director David Fincher (‘Fight Club’, ‘Zodiac’) and writer Aaron Sorkin (‘The West Wing’, ‘A Few Good Men’) have made a mischievous, scaremongering tale about the origins of Facebook that combines the talky rigour of Sorkin’s writing with the spooky crispness of Fincher’s imagery. It launches us headfirst into an intense exchange between two students, Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) and his girlfriend Erica (Rooney Mara), sitting in a Harvard bar, opposite each other, nursing beers. You can hardly call it a conversation. She speaks smartly and normally; he avoids eye- contact, talks through her, responds selectively and, when the chat doesn’t go his way, needily asks: ‘Is this real?’

Movie Review from Movies.com

It’s either a biopic or a loose interpretation of real events amped up to look like a biopic, but that’s not really the point. It’s really a somewhat familiar story about the ascent to power, just a different sort of power than the one that a place like Harvard could even see coming. Weirder, it was a situation that wrote new rules and felt democratic even if it was the work of guy who knew only how to get his own way, a social network invented by a misanthropic lone wolf. It’s part Citizen Kane, part Goodfellas, part Revenge of the Nerds and the most entertaining film you never knew you would want to see.

Movie Review from Telegraph.co.uk

The Social Network, the most anticipated film of 2010 after Inception, is about Facebook. You may have heard of Facebook. To sceptics, it’s the website that’s not Friendster, little more than Bebo for adults. Its enthusiasts, though (their tacit motto being 500 Million Active Users Can’t Be Wrong), hail it as a wonderfully dynamic, user-generated, paradigm-shifting exemplar of Web 2.0. Either way, over the past few years, it’s often been hard to pick up a newspaper or magazine without seeing yet another article about the company’s rapid rise or about its youthful, nerdish founder Mark Zuckerberg (aka the Accidental Billionaire, also the name of Ben Mezrich’s book, which inspired this film).

    “You’re not an @$$hole…but you try so hard to be one.” wow. epic. What was that chick’s role in the film again? Ah that’s right, we needed some window into Zuckerberg’s human heart cause we didn’t get one from anywhere else.

    Oh and uh women are only useful when they’re snortin’ off each others’ bellies. Didn’t your mama ever teach you that?

    Two stars for good camerawork and decent acting on the part of Eisenberg and Garfield. Essentially no one else. And what fuxing year is this – maybe I should strip down and gyrate cause that’s the only role I have in the intellectual world. What a joke.

  2.   Danger Man said on October 7th, 2010:

    I have absolutely no interest in this movie. I know it’s Fincher and everything but the subject matter just seems boring and I don’t like the Michael Cera imitation either. Does anybody want to watch this?

  3.   Indy said on October 13th, 2010:

    Do you really want films & books about nothing but outsized caricatures of humanity as characters, or filled with people who we are so utterly incapable of identifying with that they might as well be aliens from a civilization antithetical to our own?

Why not leave a comment about this...
