The Social Network Review
I was really not sure if i wanted to watch that movie. At last i did of course. Not with the best thoughts in mind though. I've heard many times that mos of it is a lie.
So here i am watching a movie about Facebook and its creation. To let you know it's most from its economic and legal aspect. We have Mark against his best friend Eduardo who suits him for 600 millions dollars and the situation with 3 Harvard guys who accuse him he stole the idea from them. As they answer questions, we see how they describe their actions. The movie is based on a book. They didn't put all the "facebook creators" into one room and asked them. The Accidental Millionares was written Ben Mezrich and its based on Eduardo's aspect since Mark declined to speak with the author about the book. So i guess, we really don't have all the truth, though according to wikipedia's story about Facebook 80% is true (i think).Anyway, despite the fact the movie rolls in that way, through questions, i have to say i liked it. It was not "youhou happy movie" but it was pretty interesting and it made to wanna watch it til the end. Mostly, cause i couldn't believe how many changed all people around Mark. And i say everyone except Mark, because he is living in his own world. Literally he doesn't care about money. From what we saw here, always. I'm sure he is pretty happy which his billions XD
As for the casting i believe it had really good choices. Jesse Eisenberg always made think he is a person who live in his own world. He really makes a good Mark. He was born with that style. And no matter, i never enjoyed his movies, he is a great actor.
I've never watched Andrew Garfield before (except that i know he is the next Spiderman) but i now believe he is a really talented actor. It surprised me how you can understand his emotions so well from the way he was playing. Especially from his facial expressions. Girls plus: he is really cute
Another of the mains was Justin Timberlake. His part is not that big but he did his job. He never was a really such actor but surely he doesn't suck.The medium level.
There were many other unknown for me actors but they weren't amateurs. The directors,etc have done a really good job with the movie. What suprised me was Brenda Song (isn't she a Disney star from Cody&..don't remember). She is not good and well yeah..i was happy she had really small parts in it.
I don't really know to who i will recommend the movie. I watch it from curiosity and that's all. If you are bored with that kind of things..i don't know..maybe don't watch it. I thought i will stopped it at the first half hour and i didn't. Only the soundtrack was really really bad...the music just doesn't match good..
