The Social Network

Last week, when I watched Eat Pray Love with my roommate Kenny Lyne, I saw the trailer of The Social Network, which made me want to watch the movie on big screen soon. The fact that it is the story about the making of the most widely used social network, Facebook, and the complications that went after it, is something that we, active users of this social network would like to watch out for. So yesterday, me and my other roommate, Jessica, went to SM North to view the said movie. We actually agreed to watch Legend of the Guardians. But when we arrived there and realized that The Social Network is already showing, we changed our mind. 

"Grabe!" was the expression I always blurted out during the screening. Grabe! for Mark Zuckerberg's nerdy lifestyle. Grabe! for his genius; his faculty for computer programming is above superiority. Grabe! for his betrayal to his good friend or more appropriately, best friend. Grabe! for the success of Facebook. It is now worth 26 billion dollars with 500 million users. Mark Zuckerberg was dumped, broken hearted for that matter, and so the start of the controversial story of the making of Facebook. Girls, don't mess with a genius if you don't want them to become a billionaire. :D

It doesn't only give you entertainment but also the knowledge about the history of the website which everyone around the world is most familiar with. Although it is a true to life story, you wouldn't feel any iota of boredom from start to finish. It is very intriguing and the characters are interesting. Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, Justin Timberlake and others portray their part so well. So go on, watch the movie, it's good! :))

Left: Jesse Eisenberg as Zuckerberg; Right: The real Mark Zuckerberg
