OK this is a great movie, but why Apple sort it as comedy?
Inspire to do more. I watch this when I need to ideas
This movie is my most favorite movie of all time.
This truly is one of the greatest shows of all time, and so is the scoring, David Fincher, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross are insanely creative. This movie and the scoring deserves much more than just a five star review.
I rarely watch films 2 complete times, this film is that amazing.
Stunningly filmed, impeccably written and skilfully told, The Social Network is David Fincher’s finest hour. A landmark in modern cinema, it is brilliantly made from each aspect, demanding and receiving viewer’s attentions from the first frame until long after the credits roll. From its intelligent screenplay to its superb editing to its memorable score, The Social Network defined both the decade prior to its release, and the one that followed.
I was intrigued by the discussion of this movie and of course the reviews of it by many well known and highly regarded film critics prior to purchasing it. As a movie, it certainly captures the gist (sic?) of what inspires capitalism in America and the western world; the aspirations of so many young people in developing countries. Zuckerberg comes out of this film looking like one of the most distasteful billionaires ever born. His girlfriend was portrayed as one of the brightest characters to ditch him ASAP after the initial logarithm for launch was sent into the ether . However, what is so interesting is that the film almost endorses a moral code of nihilism and hatred. Is this the new equation for capitalism? Interesting take on modern life in Ivy League (USA) Colleges and the heinous lack of moral conduct. Beware of who you select to have as an associate or friend. Great horror story.
this movie is awesome and really interesting, i love facebook and never new how it came about until now. Jesse Eisenberg does a great job in it, AWESOME
With all the hype around this movie, I was a little disappointed and a bit bored.
It was hard to follow at times, but I liked it and I'm a kid.
Best movie of the year so far.
If you feel you have an inkling of intelligence you'll understand and love this movie, great.
A fascinating insight into human nature and the way that ideas can germinate and become insanely great. A good watch although I am led to believe that there's a fair amount if poetic license in this one - but we watch most films for entertainment don't we?
This might have been an interesting movie but the soundtrack is so loud it drowns out the actors voices & makes the plot difficult to follow as I could not hear what the actors were saying!
Plot of the movie isn't even good. Didnt understand what was happening half of the time. Dont waste money.
