Are you heading out to see "The Social Network" this weekend?
If so, you can now send in your movie review with just a single photo! You don’t have to write anything or break out the video camera; just a single photo expressing your opinion on the film will do.
But of course, if you want to be like Rolling Stone's Peter Travers above and give us a video review, don’t let us stop you! We look forward to checking those out as well. Either way, upload your reviews and we'll see you at the movies.
Holy cow. The world sure keeps changing. The Singularity is Near.
The movie was great .
Buddybook is so damn dumb...
Excellent movie! Not only for the exceptional acting, the movie gets you from start to end wanting more and it's very inspiring. It is just sad to see what money can make people do to others. I read above its a legit american story, I'm not american, so shame on you americans...
Husband and I saw the film yesterday. Left feeling inspired! Mark is highly talented and I wish him continued success! As for the twins, not sure how to take them, seems like they cry too much. Feel bad for eduardo and hope he got what he wanted.
Im not sure how much of the movie was true or exaggerated but it made mark zuckerburg seem like a dork and a jerk. I couldnt get over the character justin timberlake played just didnt fit well because i just kept thinking thats justin timberlake... trying to act. In all it was a great film, intregging, and funny. Great acting except JT, the pop industry misses you.
First, all of ypu who have not seen the movie, but are saying it is stupid, bad, etc., should rethink offering opinions on something you know nothing about. Go see it and you have a right to judge it.
As for judging the people the movie is about, that is another matter. But still remember that vitriolic rhetoric is seldom taken seriously and usually makes you look worse than those you are spewing it about.
In this day of lax standards on just about everything know that your opinion carries more weight if you have a basic command of English grammar. And bother to use it.
Hey, everyone has a right to an opinion but why are so many people spending precious time saying hateful things about other human beings instead of trying to have a shred of compassion or empathy.
Just my random musings.
I'm finally happy the twins are getting the positive recognition they deserve. Knew mark wasn't good from day one. Yeah he has fb. But they graduated from Harvard and went to the Olympics. What now.
I hearing and reading a lot of good reviewsm I just want to get some ideas how this ideas would work to a person which is not a real blogger at all.
Non of the comments, thumbs ups or critics are gonna stop Facebook fenomenom. It's here to stay (good or bad) kids communicate with/thru it and lots of parents & grandpas dipped in in order to try to be in touch with a genetation pure digital. Facebook and sms is the way thr internact (good or bad) but is a reallity. Just watch the kids on the streets! They text or post things even if they are at 4 feet. Don't hate or love it... Just digest it... it's that simple. Is like we where talking about how the cellphone will or will not succeed in the 90".
It's am awesome movie, it's a must see for all the bloggers like me, who are into similar shoes like Mark in the movie. Ideas are many it's just got to come at the right time!.
Another overhyped pile! People need to stop drinking the koolaide, the facts in this film are completely messed up! Awful acting, halfassed camera work, just awful all around. A film that acts like napster, myspace and facebook made the Internet... Please!! All fads, people running these things have no idea what they are doing nor did the people who made this film.
Mark Zuckerberg just gave $100 million to NJ public schools. Do some research before you post.
I went last night and was entertained quite well. The twins were stupid for nor having him sign a contract, but ended up with a nice settlement. Edwardo got screwed in the end. I hope he got a good settlement for his part of my FB addiction. At least I stopped the stupid farmville, but i can keep track of people I list after high school. Good movie!
Really GREAT film, masterfully told. You're an idiot if you hate it before you've even seen it. Here's a genius who gave the world what it desperately wanted BEFORE anyone knew what it wanted. It was amazing to see a young man make a Billion by giving it all away. Absolutely incredible story. Baby you're a rich man too....
Frank (comment 48) since you are clearly the one who is 12, I'll clarify. No, words on a screen are not 'friends' words on a screen are communications with friends. And yes, since you are intellectually challenged, I might point out that money is for use here on Earth. One may not take it with him for use in death.
You could just go hang out with your 'friends' or talk to them on the phone. Makes a bit more sense.
And why praise a billionaire? It's not like he's helping you or anyone else out. Rich people should get on their knees, pray and put that $$$$$ to humanitarian use. No reason for one person to have that much money all to themselves while there's people being put out on the street because they can't pay their bills, children going hungry and people who need medical care but can't get it because they can't pay the greedy doctors.
And, no. I'm not 12. I'm not even a teenager anymore. Surprise, surprise!
If you think facebook is great wait til you get on this thing called myspace.
I thought it was a great film. I love Aaron Sorkin's writing style...the way he creates dialog between characters a la West Wing. You have to actually think and keep up with the conversation to appreciate the movie. Very impressive debut for him.
The movie was really nice, I could not find anything to criticize eventhough I tried... I'll go see it again just one more time
Watched it last might and loved it! It is well paced, beautuful cinematography, acting was excellent. The movie is about how facebook started, don't expect some cookie cutter stuff. The movie keeps in engrossed all the way through. A
J.ar, shut the fvck up! Stop spamming!
y is everyone on this zucherburgh guy.yeah I give the guy some respect for comin out with the idea that revolutionized the internet as we know. But that goes to show that the so called other inventors of facebook were sleeping on their own idea n zucherburgh guy moved in on it first. but nothing to be on he's dj$k for or maybe he's a billionare.nahhh sike.jajajalata everyone its been fun but I got my own idea to worry about then zucherburghs.peace!!!
How did he 'revolutionize the Internet'? All he did was created another crappy social networking site.
relax kcwild guy.i understand you find zucherburg cute n all but control your estragen
maddie over here gettin all but hurt over a stupid movie.u can actually sense her anger behind that keyboard.kuku kuku.maddie its ok.its just a movie
What is facebook?
I believe my name says it ALL:
its one of those movies u kinda wanna c but u don't tell no one ur gunna c it.so u secretly watch it n then when people ask u if u seen it u say no.so its kinda like being in the closet.
Synopsis–even if you are a geek with brains, have a good idea at the right time, and therefore get girls and a ton of money, you're still a d*ck.
So addicted to facebook, I can't wait to see the social network!
I'm so addicted to facebook!!! I can't wait to see the social network!
ahh there's nothin like waking up to a nice refreching dose of comments from your fb frenemies.
Exellent film. The movie moves at a blistering pace and still manages to be fully captivating. Mark and Sean's relationship around Facebook was incredibly interesting. The lawsuit deposition scenes set the story up perfectly. Mark Zuckerberg may be the most interesting story of our generation.
I thought the movie was pretty good. Based on the info from the movie, I feel that Mark doesn't owe those other people anything. The twins should have had Mark sign something at the very beginning of the partnership. They're dumb for not doing so. Go see the movie. :)
my face page is overflowing with virtual friends. but I was sick no one visited I was jailed no one visited nor bailed I was wout food or clothes and none helped.but evrytime I let my dog out he's cage he gives my leg a hug.now that's a tru facebook friend.
this is a RANDOM COMMENT! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO !!!
thatll be cool if we all conversed thru cans tied with a string.huh ill give it a shot.but idk about this whole facebook.sounds to complicated.
just got a breakfast burrito from the only jj grill in ontario,ca.c how I just gave them promo
no just beers
Do they serve beer?
whats a request?
I think if u tie a string between 2 cans u can hear the person on the other end talk into the can If they dont fart then you smell it
alex has a friend request.
Why is no one talking about "Social Network" ?
Let me say it was okay .. might be little more fascinating to elderly and teenagers.
Its a real world story with one original idea, no social impact, and 2 hours of nerdiness which I anyways see around me all the time :) They should pay you to watch this movie.
What is this facebook you talk about?
@ rob 1 person likes this.
I was going but dinner is at 3pm and I think I farted no its wet so i cant go
For those of you who think Facebook has blocked our communication lines, your wrong. It has only increased them. I talk to old friends I have not seen since high school and keep in touch with people I cannot see regularly thanks to Facebook. Ya moms are getting it too... so what . Are you not a family person. Do u not have fun with your family or are you so self-centered and only care about what others think because your mom or dad is on Facebook. Grow up. I honestly would have no idea what my entire graduating class is doing today or be able to talk one of my best friends in Germany daily and catch up on him playing professional basketball via Facebook by messaging and videos. Who cares if everyone on earth has Facebook , that just means we can all stay connected a little easier now.
I think online marketing mediators keep adding positive comments because no one who has taste thinks this movie will be good.It looks dull, it's sad too because the director is amazing and has great films under his belt.I think marketing-wise they cast a huge net with their advertising buys blanketing billboards and the internet. I just don't care enough to sit through 2 hrs of zuckerburg.they're assuming because a lot of people are on fb a lot of people will see the movie. The real story seems dull and they're trying to sell the subplots. Lame. Lame. Lame.
I'd rather hear about that dude bus commute.
I need more farm animals.
@ james and alcoltraz. you both have friend requests.
I just deleted a few so I'm in need of a a couple..
its not 3d so I won't c it.ill wait for it on redbox.
This movie is confusing the general public based on biased ideas. The movie has approx. less than 5% factual content. Concider the release date and remember the Blare Witch movie. Pure b.s. Are writers in hollywood so desperate, that now we're gonna see a boatload of movies depicting everyday ideas and not pass them off as 2 hour advertisements... gesh.. What's next, the Sam Walton come-up!
I'll probably see it eventually, but it seems somewhat poetic to wait and steal it off the Internet.
in the future. people wont talk to eachother when sittin next to eachother they twitt to eachother thru their cell. verbal communication is virtually obsolete and you get looked at funny when speaking to someone.doctors will call it verbal fatigue.or just to lazy to wanna talk anymore.
people don't even talk on the cell phone anymore onlly text yet alone interact with them when you have social network sites like facebook n twitter.
goodmorning cnn blog land.
zuckerberg dies at the end.oopps
Personally, I think facebook is terrible. It's just another excuse not to actually interact with people. If it's your thing, I understand, but I remember when facebook was just for college students. Now, peoples' moms are using facebook. How lame is that? I do agree that it changed the landscape of social media, but I don't believe it's a good thing.
Feel free to add to the conversation about films at http://khocolatemoose.wordpress.com/
We'd love to hear your opinion, and often.
thought it was facetwitt.
riding a bus thru L.A its probably equivalant to riding a jail bus.
finally at the pomona transfer center.switchin for another bus.
Do you realize that you're posting your commute on a cnn article about Facebook? This isn't Twitter...
Someone said this story was fake earlier.. Have they turned on a computer in the last 5 years? This movie was great! And everyone in the PACKED theater we went to thought the same. To all who think this will bomb, you are already wrong.
The story line is admittedly fake. The general concept of the movie is grounded in reality but there is a lot of fiction.
Dude, this movie was awesome...It does make you wonder however if people would use facebook if they knew that Zuckerberg was such a little f...stick...
the bus doesn't have to be boring you can look at it as being given a tour of the city or cities depending on destination
riding the bus doesn't have to be boring you can look at it as being given a tour of the city or cities depending on destination
on the bus thru pomona trying to get to work.the bus is a hybrid.cool
he took myspace and the blog idea stirred it up and wala facebook.now myspace is trrying to imitate but too late.
I've got an idea.im will build a social network site to help the C.I.A find personal info about people and to keep track of their daily activities.Then I have another idea where if the person no longer wants to be a part of the network have a seperate site to help him self destruct his page and everything they ever wrote for a small fee. brilliant
I can't wait to not see this movie!
You don't have to like or dislike Facebook to enjoy the story and the effort that went into the film. I am not on facebook, but I intend on seeing the movie. Like it or not, Facebook has helped change the Internet from a one way push of information to a two way exchange of social dialogue. It's worthy of a film and anyone who trashes it publically without having seen it first i believe is short
sighted. Get off your soap box.
Brilliantly stated. The movie has one of the best adapted screenplays of all time that was shot by one of modern times' most detail oriented directors, it is an astounding film. You don't have to even know what Facebook is to enjoy the film, it's pacing is ferocius and the acting is top notch in a story about power struggles. Phenomonal film, lock for a best picture nom.
Planning to go today to see it!
It looks really cool. Im gnna see it sunday
Mark Zukerberg could be a jerk yes,but..hes my kind of jerk.lol. I love inventive fox' who luckily get rich accidentaly or otherwise.Does anyone remember.Graduates.com?guess not everyone graduated ...many young people will make billions of dollars..so instead of hating.think.invent.after all..where theres 1 there r many.
Be sure to smoke some weed from your Farmville before going to theatre.
Can anybody sell the weed that I grow on my Farmville in their Mafia Wars gang?
NATHAN. YOU HAVE TO REALIZE. NOBODY CARES ABOUT YOUR OPINION BECAUSE YOU ARE A BIASED HATER. GET A REAL OPINION WITH REAL ARGUMENTS. I hate Facebook. But at least I have tried it and disliked it because I thought it was a waste of time. But now that I have read your multiple mindless and uneduated comments I think I will sign up for Facebook. I bet I will find more interesting people there. PS: I just friended your mom on facebook. She says you're one angry boy and she wants you out of her basement at least by your 38th birthday.
I think we I should see this movie so we can see what's going on aroud us. "I'm going to see it"
This is a movie about a guy that can't meet girls the traditional way..trying to make computers all cool and nerds getting rich... Making it like it was a great story with lots of drama.that was no great invention! Its a photo album online for god sakes! Please everyone quit trying to make it like these guys invented the wheel or discovered electricity!
- think all of you facebook haters are dinosauris-losers, no doubt friendless and obviously envious of billionaires.
Words on a screen are not 'friends'. What are you, 12?
Money doesn't need anything when it comes to eternity. You don't take your bank account with you.
Hey mr. Al gore imporsonater! You must be loopy. Because only someone as nutty as you would make a comment about a debatable thing like inventing the internet bla bla,. Over 1/10 of a century ago! Get over it pal. Lucky you your the first poster on this comment and there isnt one hint of common sense in that ridiculous comment. What the hell does al gore have to do with the story anyway? He didnt say anything political and hes not running for office! Nice way to ruin the story. I wasnt going to bother watching this movie but thanks to you its on my must see list.
hahahahahaha...you're an idiot.
Heard from a friend that Zuckerberg was @ Century 16 at Shoreline in Mountain View watching it this afternoon. Not surprised in the least bit.
Sounds like Nathan is an ignorant troll trying to rowl people up when his opinion is baseless sense he obviously hasn't seen the movie.
Thank you for that comment Jordan. You took the words right outta my head/mouth. lol. I'm thinking Nathan probably tried to create an account with f/b and ended up having all of the friend requests (he attempted) being ignored. He's a bitter, antagonistic loser with nothing better to do than to insult and be an issensant bother..... I haven't seen the movie yet but I have every intention to. Facebook has connected me with people I thought I'd never see or talk to again in my lifetime. I'm grateful for things like this. No matter how petty it may seem to some people.
I saw this movie already and it was called Revenge of the Nerds. Trent Reznor must be hard up for cash.
Trent Reznor is a has-been. Which is sad to say since NIN was once one of my very favorite acts.
I was surprised. Great film. A must see. Especially for those who facebook. Personally, I do not. The cast was great. Trent Reznor I thought knocked it out of the park as far as musical score. The acting was superb. A true american story. An idea becomes an ideal. Which than becomes a brand and of course a lot of money. And friends who you thought were friends, aren't friends. Great story, well depicted, well made. Good show, worth checking out.
Mark Zuckerberg can go fvck himself! He probably has ties to the CIA or NSA, like Google does. Hope someone robs him blind.
1 person 'likes' this.
And 1 person thinks you're an idiot.
Nice 'retort'. Nothing of substance.
Movie=great . Live a little
The movie has "asian beauties" in it. I'm there! But I'm not on Facebook and never will be. I value my privacy.
sounds like a stupid movie. i hate facebook
Well said, maybe there are a few people with some knowledge of the quality (I mean, lack of quality) of FaceBook and this stupid movie!
Facebook hates you too. Grow up. If you don't want to watch the movie then don't....but why waste your time talking about how your not going to watch it...seems pathetic
I was a skeptic, dragged to the movie. The story was told brilliantly, and the actors were at their best....extremely impressive. For those with a chip on their shoulders about Facebook, I understand, but don't let it keep you from seeing just a great movie for the entertainment value. The funny one-liners also had the (full) theater totally laughing. Just brilliant stuff.
SUPRISE! it is actually a good movie!!! Just shows the talent and drive of the younger generation!
I'll see the movie the day I signup for Facebook! Which isn't going to happen!
You just became my new idol! Those are the two most intelligent decisions I have heard anybody make in a long time! Finally somebody other than me that realizes that both FaceBook and this stupid movie suck!
Nathan – give it a rest. People like facebook AND this movie. That's just how it is. Let it go. It seems you have too much interest in letting everyone know you think a movie you've never seen is bad. Enough already. Go find a hobby.
you know why no one ever made a big budget movie about a nerd making it in the tech biz like bill gates before? CAUSE NO ONE CARES! and no one will care about this one either, no matter how much cnn hypes it.
Yep...no one. Literally NO ONE cares. I bet NO ONE will see this movie.
Stop projecting your opinions on the masses. It makes you sound ignorant, especially when you haven't seen the movie.
I plan on seeing it then posting an informed opinion.
This movie is gonna do very bad should go straight to dvd probably have better luck
If it was going straight to DVD it wouldn't be opening in theaters...
Great point jeff! <-- btw this comment is about as dumb as your comment.
I'll go watch it for sure
great movie it shows the endless possibilities of a brilliant mind or 7 or 8 brilliant minds.....definite go see....I'm so glad I am a 80's baby
A 2010 Citizen Kane. Zuckerberg is the binary messiah.
I'm not going to spend money by going to watch at the movies...just going to find it online to watch... hey facebook is. Big now and part of our world and free...soo if the movie is available to watch free...I'm going for it...that's what basically technology is all about...just pays your internet bill and you are good to go....
Technology is about intellectual property theft? Really?
Please take my advice. First of all, you shouldn't try to steal movies online, because you're only going to encourage the bad people to be bad, making you just as bad. But even more importantly, if you do find it for free, you'll regret putting in the effort of finding it, since it's probably the worst movie of the decade!
Nathan, the worst movie of the decade? You haven't even seen it, have you? Opinions on films are fine when you actually have seen the film. Stop trolling
The movie I nice, I beats all movies this year so far, I'll go see it again, the guy is intelligent, I don't think that was theft but, he got his motivation & ideas from people around him & brought it to life that's smart
Saw this movie two weeks ago at an advance screening, it is amazing. Great script, great score, and great direction. I havent been on facebook in over 4 years... I still loved this movie. David Fincher directing, and Trent Reznor scoring, how can you go wrong?
Just go see it for yourself, not to be missed. Even though I got to see it for free, I might actually pay to see it again in theatres.
Obviously not you..it's marketed towards everyone who's 50 years old and under.
YES! It IS an excellent film about an amazing way to use technology, excellently executed! And a genius who gave the world what it desperately wanted BEFORE the whole world knew it wanted it! Only an IDIOT who has NOT even seen this great film would say it's a terrible film. Get over your stupid selves folks. JEezy, you are 100% right!! Baby your a rich man now.
Nobody has been able to tell me.... WHO is this movie marketed to??
Probably to the half billion facebook users genius!
Paste eating simpletons.
Hi, I'm a FB addict and I have NO DESIRE whatsoever to see "The Social Network". NONE. Looks boring, insipid, & that actor bugs the f^ck outta me.
I'd rather chew glass.
(& yes, I just put this as my FB status! LOL)
I will not see pay to see this movie. Facebook is the antichrist!!...lol
Lol, you should facebook that.
I think the movie will do well. This is about something that is so a part of our culture, why not go see it? Its not like the buzz around it has been horrible.
i have absolutely no desire to see this movie...so i won't.
Good idea! And I would recommend that everyone else on this planet not go as well (trust me, there are multiple movies playing that are much, much better!)!
Heard that there are some surprises. Definately not for conservatives!
Andrew Garfield was truly remarkable in this film. He was so expressive and reactive in every moment of the film. He never just jumps to the line there's always some kind of reaction that occurs within his body whether it be a facial tick or a gesture. I cant wait to see him in Spider-Man, even though at first I was against the idea.
Movie was brilliant! Amazing script. Cast knocks it out of the park. Andrew Garfield is the exceptional stand out. Breathing and Alive in every moment of the film. First film ever on red cameras. Every shot is like eye candy. Incredibly fast paced, leaves you wanting more. Trent Reznor's score squeezes tense moments to their maximum and makes computer programming look like rockstar sh!t. Cant wait to see it again.
Actually dozens of "films" have been shot on the red camera already including everything soderbergh has shot over the last 3 years.
First film ever on the red? Uhhhhhh what are you talking about.
what the hell is up with CNN? my comment doesnt show up. I wrote up a review!!
Mark my type! This movie will bomb big time... no better than 22 Mil for the weekend.
Just so u know if it does do 22 million that's pretty good for a movie in october and it will.probably do.really good considering it apeals say I don't know 500 million people and then there is also the justin timberlake fans also, and I've seen it and its excellent some of the best writing in a film in a long time.
22 million wouldn't be a bomb...
I'm going! already have my ticket!!
i'm not the movie looks DUMB!!!!
I couldn't agree more! This sounds like the stupidest, most unrealistic, fakest movie all year, not to mention it's about someone who is excessively overpaid for creating the worst thing to happen to the Internet, well, ever!
This sounds like a great classic story about an overprivileged jerk who burns a ton of bridges in the pursuit of money and fame. I bet all you 35+ types with chips on your shoulders about these darned kids with their darned internets these days would be flocking to see this if it didn't center on the founder of Facebook. Also, like it or not, Facebook has changed the landscape of social media. You can't call it a fad anymore.
Mark Zuckerberg scored Asian beauties for inventing Facebook. What about me? I invented THE INTERNET! twitter.com/BACHELOR_AL
Great movie. Instant fan of Mark. Watching the movie made me angry because he is a genius who obviously can't defend himself physically to the 6'5" crew brothers and everyone else who wanted a piece. Made me think he needs someone to look out for him. Like a body guard. Not to immasculste Mark in any way but some people do not have the height or weight or strength. This reply was not to be all about a body guard for Mark but the more I think about how people are just angers me. My reply was simply this, The Social Network is a great movie and people need to get off there high horse and give recognition when due. Stop being jealous that a 20 year old kid is a billionaire and you aren't . Life goes on. Deal with it.
Mark Zuckerberg is a straight up thief. I went to school with him, and he stole the facebook idea from some other guys at harvard who had hired him to write code for the social networking website they were making. He snuck off and came out with facebook before their site went up. I haven't seen the movie but can't help but think it portrays him in a much better light than reality.
Really, you just gave away the plot. Support your friends who got 65 million and walk away. Not a bad deal to shut up, I dont think
They are that upset.
This movie calls "the top" for Facebook. It's all downhill from here. Facebook will follow in the steps of MySpace. I give it 2 more years, tops.
This article is interesting. Why ask this in the first place? CNN never asks about who watches other movies. Why is the media giving this such a hype? Why would CNN?
