Tweet this: The Social Network for Best Picture of 2010.

Finally – a movie with witty dialogue, zero gun shots that actually has a plot!  “The Social Network” was awesome on so many levels:  great writing, great acting, interesting story and fantastic score (co-scored by Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails).  For so many of us that use Facebook, it was surprising how little I knew about the creation of it as well as the people involved in the process.  I can imagine you’ll probably have the same reaction.  I have no idea how great Jesse Eisenberg’s performance as Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg really is since I have no frame of reference.  However, what Eisenberg does convey is that Mark Zuckerberg is a brainiac with almost zero social skills, zero interest in taking over the world and instead is just a pretty lovable computer geek who just wants to out-geek everyone else.  I won’t ruin the plot for you by revealing too much because I often think, the less you know, the better the film.  I was purely entertained, I laughed and I learned something from watching “The Social Network,” something that cannot be said about most movies I’ve seen this year.  If I can find a “like” button, I’ll definitely click on it.

    Like you, I cannot say enough flattering things about this great film! I laughed my ass off and was captivated from start to finish. Glad we saw it together.
