    The movie about the founders of Facebook.

    Not gonna lie, I'm really excited to see this. The trailer's really good and has me intrigued. And it's directed by David Fincher. Enough said. :wink:

    I'm intrigued by this movie, but I fear it'll be a let down.

    When people hear there's a movie about Facebook, they'll all go but I doubt it'll be of any good. -_-

    Doesn't look like my thing at all.
    Very good use of 'Creep' though.

    Yeah, but almost everyone and their mother is on it so there's no doubt that this will definitely pique people's curiosity.

    BTW, I just found out Trent Reznor is doing the score. This should be good.

    This actually looks really good. It's not what I was expecting at all. And I had no idea David 'freakin' Fincher was directing it. I can't wait to see it.

    Jesse Eisenberg is a new favorite of mine. :D

    I like the look of this although I was skeptical when I herd it was about the creation of Facebook. Don't you think its a little too soon to be creating a movie about the guys who created this site? I mean it hasn't even been around for ten years or anything and technology moves so fast these days that my only fear is this movie will end up dating itself.

    ^ From what I understand it is an actual film about the creation of Facebook however its based off of the founders personal experiences. It has a pretty good cast so I expect I'll probably go to the theaters to see it, I mean Jesse Eisenburg is in it, and he was great in his recent films.

    it seems a bit too early to make a film on facebook (or its founders...). the idea seems so dumb but the final project itself doesn't seem that bad... still skeptical, though.

    THE FIRST REVIEW [THE SOCIAL NETWORK] “Splendid Entertainment From a Master Storyteller”

    [FONT=Verdana,sans-serif]Weeks before David Fincher’s[/FONT][FONT=Verdana,sans-serif]The Social Network[/FONT][FONT=Verdana,sans-serif] is set to premiere at the New York Film Festival, [/FONT][FONT=Verdana,sans-serif]Variety/LA Weekly/Village Voice film critic turned film programer [/FONT][FONT=Verdana,sans-serif]Scott Foundas[/FONT][FONT=Verdana,sans-serif] is the first person to see[/FONT][FONT=Verdana,sans-serif] Fincher[/FONT][FONT=Verdana,sans-serif]’s [/FONT][FONT=Verdana,sans-serif]The Social Network[/FONT][FONT=Verdana,sans-serif] and go on record about the film. What did he think? Well he liked it, he liked it quite a lot in fact he compares it to the likes of [/FONT][FONT=Verdana,sans-serif]All the President’s Men[/FONT][FONT=Verdana,sans-serif] and [/FONT][FONT=Verdana,sans-serif]The Great Gatsby[/FONT][FONT=Verdana,sans-serif], stating its “[/FONT][FONT=Verdana,sans-serif]Quentin [/FONT][FONT=Verdana,sans-serif]Tarantino[/FONT][FONT=Verdana,sans-serif] crossed with Bill Gates.” [/FONT][FONT=Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif][FONT=Verdana,sans-serif]In a lengthy review/philosophical musing posted on the NYFF’s [/FONT][FONT=Verdana,sans-serif]Film Comment[/FONT][FONT=Verdana,sans-serif] website Foundas says that the film is rife with suspense and challenges the modern day notions of friendship and isolation:
    [/FONT][/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif][FONT=Verdana,sans-serif][FONT=Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif]Foundas’ opinion may be slightly influenced by the fact that The Social Network is opening the New York Film Festival and Foundas is acting as associate director of said festival, but his praise for the film is well-articulated and seemingly genuine.

    I have a feeling it will be a big let down and I am not one of those people that are so obsessed with Facebook that I will watch a movie based on it :|

    ^ LOL IKR? Like seriously, Justin Timberlake? I mean, I love the dude, but him getting an Oscar nom is just so far-fetched. :lol:

    I think at the most, the movie could garner a Best Screenplay nom or a Best Director nom for Fincher. But we'll have to see. :smile:

    Justin Timberlake is actually a pretty good actor, though I must admit I'm really shocked at how positive a reception this film has received so far!
