Go into a bit more details why you feel that it was an excellent movie. I'm curious to hear your thoughts on it.

As far as Cape Fear it was ok but weird. Problay the first film I ever saw the slutty and always tacky juliet lewis in
Here check out this page and follow through to find out at least 10 huge inaccuracies in the story.

I didn't even know about these and I could tell that The Social Network was like watching swiss cheese and there were so many holes in the damn story. hated it....so annoying.

Well, first of all, despite the bias made about the storyline, and it not being an actuality, I think the plot outline stayed pretty close to his real life situation. My friend and I did some research for a project once, which was based solely around facebook, so a good bit of the content which was set in the movie, we already knew. It's just one of those classic stories deceit that was done particularly well in this movie.

Secondly the acting was absolutely fantastic. Jesse Eisenberg is a terrific actor in my opinion, with multiple notches above his comparable counter part Michael Cera. I love smart, witty dialogue as well, and he certainly pulled off the douchey intellect role flawlessly. The music throughout the film was on point as well. Social Network's most definitely in my top 3 films of last year.

I agree with you on the music aspect but I didn't pay too much attention to Jesse's acting. He seems to play that same sort of role in all of his movies, just like the aptly named Michael Cera.

I really didn't like it because I went into it expecting one thing and got something completely different and it was just meh. So-so.

I thought that it was just okay. I've seen this kind of premise before. Natalie Porman's character wasn't that likeable so I was kind of okay with the ending.

I thought that The Social Network was a completely average movie. It certainly wasn't bad but I don't understand why it got so much praise. It was just a decent movie.

I thought the dialogue was a bit lame as well, as if they were trying to make it too epic.
"It got twenty-two hundred hits in a couple hours?!"
"Thousand... Twenty-two thousand hits."

Really lovely. I adore Mike Leigh and the way he portrays the British working class with such love and good natured humour...(:

What do you mean by "aptly named"?

Interesting. I never thought of his films as good natured. I thought his cynicism was his greatest strength.
Naked is one of my favorite films ever. I haven't kept good track of Leigh's work but I should.

I most recently watched 'Broken Flowers' by Jim Jarmusch. Twice.

The name Michael means "Who is like God" in Hebrew. An anagram for this is whisked igloo, which one can interpret as moving from an igloo. This can be seen as a metaphor that represents him separating himself from his Canadian heritage by going into showbusiness in Hollywood.

Either that or DJ made a mistake.
