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.
