Thanks Nuffnang for The Social Network!

Wow, 4 movies in a row! Yes, my luck is back?! Previously, I got tickets for  Sammy's Adventures, Adele: Rise of Mummy, and Megamind! This time, thanks for Nuffnang for selecting me to be one of 75 lucky winners for The Social Network special screening @ Midvalley on 22 Nov!~ I really never thought that my slogan would win woh! So surprised!

Anyway, on that day, I went to Midvalley all by myself. It was really scary leh! When I reached there, I went shopping in Jusco. Therefore, I was a bit late when collecting the tickets. It was really tiring! I actually saw a lot of familiar faces there like Robb, Timothy?, Kenwooi and etc. Because of my shyness and tiredness, I didn't really greet or whatsoever since I only knew them via blogging(^^)! I just went in and enjoyed the 2-hour movie!

Adapted from Nuffnang blogging kit:
Genre : Drama, Comedy                                                              
On a fall night in 2003, Harvard undergrad and computer programming genius Mark Zuckerberg sits down at his computer and heatedly begins working on a new idea.  In a fury of blogging and programming, what begins in his dorm room soon becomes a global social network and a revolution in communication. A mere six years and 500 million friends later, Mark Zuckerberg is the youngest billionaire in history... but for this entrepreneur, success leads to both personal and legal complications.  From director David Fincher and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin comes The Social Network, a film that proves you don't get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies.  The film is produced by Scott Rudin, Dana Brunetti, Michael De Luca, and Ceán Chaffin and based on the book "The Accidental Billionaires" by Ben Mezrich.
Starring: Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, and Justin Timberlake
Directed by: David Fincher (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Fight Club)

Afterthoughts of The Social Network (Facebook)

To be honest, this is really one of the movies of the year! At 19, Mark Zuckerberg, a student in Harvard U (Omg, my favourite U) created TheFacebook. Just like that, he become one of the youngest billionaire in the world. Isn't that a bit easy ?! Not really, in this movie, it revealed some ugly truths. It examines the the nature of human in such a way that impacts its viewers deeply.  

Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) in the movie was really annoying, sarcastic, childish and defensive (the ingredients for a genius , I guess). In truth, he basically built facebook all by himself but, with some help his friends. Yet, when he started to gain success, he faced all the accusations. Even his best friend, Eduardo (Andrew Garfield) was suing him along with the Winklevoss Twins (Armie Hammer) in 2 different cases.

After watching the movie, I didn't really sympatised his situation. He really deserved it (hahahaha). For Eduardo, he did invest in the beginning. The way Mark treated him was rather cruel. For the twins, he agreed to help them in the beginning. He should reject after the 2nd week?! Oh well, he is loaded, just paid them to settle the cases. ( Note: all thoughts were from the movies itself, I don't really know the case that thoroughly, don't sue me~~~) 

The supporting casts all were really handsome woh!!!! All are tall and look like model (Andrew Garfield and Armie Hammer). But, they were not overshadowed by their looks. Andrew was super emotional-strained in the movie, he really touched me^^. Armie was great in acting the twins, they look alike, but act differently(^^)! 

Again, thanks Nuffnang for the great movie 
Rating: 8.9/10
