The Social Network – Early Screening Reviews

David Fincher’s The Social Network is one of the most anticipated movies of 2010. It tells the story about the founding of the social networking website Facebook. The Social Network is scheduled for an October 1st release. Apparently, the studio gave an early screening of the movie some days ago. Here’s what those lucky people/writers are saying…

“The Social Network will define a generation for a generation that couldn’t care less about its generation, but it’s as entertaining as anything you’ll watch all year.” – Erik Davis (Cinematical)

“The Social Network is a hugely entertaining watch. It’s not often you get that right mix of art and entertainment. I believe Fincher found that sweet spot. I loved this movie and I think it officially kicks off the 2010 Oscar race.” – Quint (AICN)

“Even if you’re not one of the millions that spends hours-on-end checking your Facebook wall, I think you’ll love watching how the site got put together. It’s a fascinating story and one that will be remembered later this year during Awards season.” – Steve Weintraub (Collider)

“4 Stars. The movie of the year, that also brilliantly defines the decade” – Peter Travers (Rolling Stone)

Since the movie was announced I was really interested in it. Since I knew that Sorkin was writing the script, I got more interested. Now people who’ve seen it, are saying it’s the movie of the year and that it will be in the middle of the Oscar race. Now, I’m more pumped up for this film.
Can’t wait to see it. It’ll probably rock like they say.

You guys watching this? You like Facebook? Should they come out with a Google or Twitter film?

  1. Very cool news. I knew this movie was going to be worth while because it’s David Fincher. But already getting Oscar buzz is even better. Plus Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails) did the soundtrack.

    I already wanted to see this pretty badly, but now I might have to see it on opening night.

  2. Okay… maybe I’m being a bit disagreeable tonight… and I apologize in advance… but does every blog post you write have to include a half dozen questions at the end? I get that they’re to spark conversation, but the blog itself is supposed to be able to do that. It’s just extra fluff and doesn’t need to be there.

    Okay, now that my complaint is out of the way… I *am* excited about this movie. I have to say, the more I’ve read about Zuckerman, the less I like him… it kind of gives me a dirty/creepy feeling about using Facebook.

    However, Zuckerman plays a useful role in society, and I don’t just mean by hosting a popular website: he’s essentially the #1 force behind the intellectual argument that secrecy and hiding things is bad for society, and that by forcing everyone to be completely open about who they are, suddenly those secrets can’t hurt us as much. Of course, that’s a ridiculous argument, and given how very far from transparent he’s been in his life, he’s probably one of the world’s biggest hypocrites. I can’t say that I’d like to meet him… but I wouldn’t mind, at all, watching this movie that’s exposing him.

    Now, off to check my Facebook profile… LOL.

  3. This movie does not define our generation because It doesn’t Have Zombies in it. Plain and simple….. oh wait Justin Timberlakes music career is walking dead so yeah this movie will win an oscar NOW I can’t wait to see it.

  4. Yeah, or better called “Fakebook”… I think the social networking business has gone a little off… Too much internet, too much virtual interaction, and not enough actual living.

    Staying in the real life is essential…
