The Social Network (2010)


I don't know, but I'm really hoping it's cats that look like Hitler 'cause I can never get enough of that.
So basically: Mark Zuckerberg gets inspired and creates The Facebook, the working title of Facebook. Throughout its development, he brings in his friend Eduardo Saverin to finance the project. Two brothers, the Winklevi, had already hired him to create a school wide social networking site and when The Facebook becomes live, the two are furious that Zuckerburg stole their idea and sue. Months after the release, Eduardo also feels like Mark has been using him for his own gain and sues. In between two lawsuits, the creation of Facebook is told through flashbacks.

Ok, so there were a lot of funny lines in this film - partially because I'm a giant geek - but it wasn't enough. The film was boring and much too long. And wtf?! Facebook is not interesting enough to warrant a film, nor is Mark Zuckerburg and his lawsuits. Why was this movie even made? Stupid Facebook. The only redeeming part of this film was Eduardo`s character, who I thought was kind of awesome.

It does have some funny lines and some good supporting cast, but it defs does not deserve to be on the list. Boring film.

Ziggi seal of disapproval!

  1. The director of this film is a real life friend of Eduardo's so this film was made in an attempt to highlight the somewhat questionable actions of zuckerberg*
