Movie Review - The Social Network



Went to watch The Social Network movie at GSC MidValley on Tuesday, 9pm courtesy of R.AGE. I won the tickets from their FB page. What a coincidence isn't it, winning tickets of a movie that is about Facebook on Facebook itself? Oh, and I won myself a "The Social Network" T-shirt too. Nice right?



Anyways, this movie is awesome. Although the beginning of the part seeing Mark quarreling with his girlfriend and talking like a speeding bullet can make you slightly dizzy, but later, as you warm up to the character and understand the things that comes out of Mark's mouth, everything starts to become AWESOME. If this story is true and he really completed Facebook in just a few weeks, then there's no reason why he shouldn't be as rich and successful as he is now.

Facebook is worth $25 billion as of today.

Damn. I need a plan. Because as of now, I feel like I'm crawling on my knees to even make $25,000 a month. OK, I don't make that much a month actually. I wish it was as much as that. So, the amount of $25 billion is out of this world for me. Damn.



It's a little sad what happened between Mark and his best friend, Eduardo though. It must be very painful for Eduardo when his shares was diluted to as little as 0.03%. He must feel like he's being backstabbed many million times by his own best friend, whom he believed in right from the start. If I was him, I'd sue my best friend's ass too, and keep my name on the masthead just to rub it in my best friend's face.


I love the cast of this movie and I think they played their parts well. I certainly wouldn't mind watching this movie again. 

I guess the lesson here is always thread carefully in what you do or say because you don't want things to bite you in your soft spot in the near future. Also, be very wary of some people who might only be there for a ride on your success. Know who your real friends are and don't turn your back on them.

Movie Rating : 8/10

LOL i remember during the first scene I was like wtf is he's talking about - too fast for my brain to decode. The chinese subtitles made me more frustrated. But as the movie started to progress, it gets better each scene. Definitely one of the greatest movie I've watched this year.

I have not seen this movie but it's totally on my list.. :)  and I am totally a twitter and facebook addict.. :-D  So I so love Mark Zuckerberg for creating Facebook... :-D

Ane said...

So true! We should indeed watch out for people who are ready to stab us in the back when they get the chance.. If I can earn $25 a day I'd be really happy! :-D

:) Sometimes you lose more than you gain if you choose the wrong person to support or follow right? And some loses can reach millions and millions of dollars.. :(

Bella Enveeus said...

LOL.. Facebook addict must go watch this movie. It is a MUST. :-D I'm sure you'll enjoy it and understanding how Mark did it in the first place.

Bella Enveeus said...

Hi Ane! :)

Bella Enveeus said...

LOL.. You and I both.. Dah la cakap macam takde full stop. HAHA.. It's sad tho right that it turned out as it is? Money just can't buy happiness - or true friends..

Bella Enveeus said...

Actually, it's $25 BILLION.. Hehe.. Amazing figure right? And all of us here use FB! :-D

Bella Enveeus said...

It's a good movie, but yeah la, mungkin boring for a child if you bring them. Maybe cerita like Rapunzel would interest Alisya more. Nak tinggalkan di rumah susah pula.. Sigh.. I understand you dilemma bro. Kena tunggu DVD la ni macam.. :-P

I love this movie too, and sure making a business worth 25 billion is fun.
I'm sure it took a lot of hard work too, and to fend off lawsuits as well. :-)

Bella Enveeus said...

Yeah.. And once you make that much, it's a blur line between friends and foe. Money blurs everything up. It's sad too, come to think of it.. *DONT_KNOW*
