The Social Network is another movie I can finally cross off my 'Must-See' list and it was well worth the wait. I knew a little bit about some of the information that we get in the movie, namely that Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) is a douche and a dick, as well as where Facebook first originated. Other than that, I was completely unaware of a lot of stuff that ties into the mythology that is Facebook. First off, I had no idea that Sean Parker (Justin Timberlake) even had any kind of association with the networking site. I thought he disappeared like the dinosaurs after Napster went belly up. This just goes to show that I really don't follow people in general if I don't use their site or apps.

The Social Network is a fantastic movie all around. In the hands of David Fincher, he took the whole online thing and made it work as a drama and in some cases a thriller. Not your typical thriller, mind you. But it had a certain pace to the film exemplified by the editing to really keep you on your seats for the duration of the entire film. Fincher is clearly in his element here and you can see his visual touches all throughout it. But as great as he here, he is not alone. A script that anyone would die to be able to write. It's no surprise that Aaron Sorkin continues to write amazing stuff and this is right up there with the best of them.

On the acting side of things, Jesse Eisenberg was incredible, as was Andrew Garfield in the role of Eduardo Saverin. And talk about casting the right person for the role of Parker. Having Justin Timberlake playing THE guy that changed the music industry forever was kind of an in-joke. At least to me it was, by having one of the biggest superstars on the music business portraying public enemy number one. I highly recommend this as a Buy. You don't have to be a member of any social networking sites to enjoy the movie. It has it all. But it's the story itself that amazes. Truth is definitely stranger than fiction. Now take that with a grain of salt. I know that movies do tend to lose itself when trying to turn documented history into a Hollywood film.
