Movie: Social Network

Released in cinemas in 2010, the movie Social Network made a loud bang both to social network fanatics and to those who were just curious to see it.  Truth be told, I wasn’t at all interested to take that first glimpse of the film.

Don’t get me wrong.  It’s not that I am not into social networking [well, I’m a blogger so that’s a giveaway.  *wink*].  After watching its trailer, the movie just did not appeal to me at once.  It took quite sometime before I finally gave it a chance.

Tuesday a week ago, I found myself tired and drowning in boredom.  While my boyfriend was taking a long warm bath, I decided to go through our collection of movies and got so surprised that we have loads left unwatched.

So yeah, out of the choices infront of me, I picked Social Network in a heartbeat.  Confession: I was so happy I did it.

Despite its good star rating on IMDb.com, I did not expect much from the film.  First thought was it would bore me even more… and okay… I was wrong [that made me happy!].

Jesse Eisenberg is perfect for the Mark Zuckerberg role as well as Andrew Garfield as Eduardo Saverin, Facebook’s co-founder and Mark’s best friend.

All in all, I have to say, I am impressed!  Love every second of the film.  Worth my time!

How about you?  Have you watched the movie Social Network?  If yes, love it, hate it or so-so?  If you haven’t yet, are you looking forward to seeing it?
