Quick Review: The Social Network

There has been a lot of a talk about this ‘Facebook film’ and now it’s out today (15/01/2010) we’re finally allowed to talk about. Is it a bag of shite or is it a bag of grease?!?!?

Without a shadow of a doubt Facebook has changed the way everyone socialises and director David Fincher’s film about its CEO Mark Zuckerberg and the rise of the Billion Dollar social experiment takes you through the highs and the lows of the site we love/ loath today.

It’s not the most action-packed, gripping, chilling or even entertaining of films but it gets the grey matter working. The Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield and Justin Timberlake starring drama is a story about friends, ideas and not giving up on your dreams; even if your dreams are simply making your ex-girlfriend jealous (which seemed to be half of the motivation for Zuckerberg). If you’re an entrepreneur, a coder or even a blogger, this will inspire you to turn your solo ramblings into something much more.

Liking Timberlake’s interpretation of Napster founder Sean Parker and the feeling of ‘I can do that’ when you leave, we can easily confirm that ‘Danny Walker Likes This’
