The Social Network Movie Review
The Social Network Movie
The Social Network Movie is about Mark Zuckerberg and how he created Facebook and became a billionaire in his early 20s. Zuckerberg may have started Facebook, but he didn't do it all by himself. Some people believe that he even stole the idea. It's a fascinating story that made for a fascinating movie.
The Social Network is a great movie not because it is well made and not because of style or visual cleverness. It was named the best movie of 2010 by the National Society of Film Critics, who gave awards to its director, star and screenwriter. The Film Critcs also also named Jesse Eisenberg, who played the role of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, as best actor. The Social Network movie went on to receive eight Academy Award nominations and won in three categories including best Writing (adapted screenplay), best music (original score) and best film editing, a telling testament to just how good this picture was.

The Social Network is a movie about Facebook and about how technology has changed the way we communicate. The story takes place in 2003 just when technology was becoming more affordable for many people and the internet was helping us to stay in touch with friends around the world.
A Harvard student and computer wiz named Mark Zuckerberg started a website that eventually changed our world. He went on to become a very rich man but he paid a price for, despite being wealthy and successful, his life personally suffered as he became consumed by legal disputes. His huge success and the means he used to achieve it were questioned and many people wanted to see him fail. We'll never know for sure if he made errors in judgement because of greed.

The Social Network Movie on Blu-ray and DVD
"They all laughed at college nerd Mark Zuckerberg, whose idea for a social-networking site made him a billionaire. And they all laughed at the idea of a Facebook movie, except writer Aaron Sorkin and director David Fincher, merely two of the more extravagantly talented filmmakers around. The Social Network is a galloping piece of entertainment, a smart ride with smart people who sometimes do dumb things.” - Robert Horton
