I've yet to see The Social Network and will probably see it some time this week.

Yeah, I saw the trailer during Inception and said to my friends "the part where the Facebook founder bangs supermodels and goes to work in his pajamas is probably not true".


I read the reviews and it seems like the reviews depict a portrayal of Zuckerberg as like the real-life manifestation of Artie Ziff. Sounds really over the top.

Speaking of films about startups, check out E-Dreams. It's a documentary about Kozmo, a dot-com that eventually folded like many dot-coms a decade or so ago. It's crazy to think investors were silly to throw money at half-baked ideas (in hindsight), but that's the era for you. The CEO is a bit of a character too and it's somewhat satisfying to see him and his company inevitably crash and burn. Worth a look.

That's not really how it plays out in the movie.

I saw it last Friday and would probably agree with 8.5/10. I enjoyed pretty much every second of it, and it absolutely flew by. The score was great as well (composed by Trent Reznor). My one complaint is that there was no real climax. During the movie that wasn't an issue, it's just something that I kind of felt after it was over.

I give it a 7.1/10. Five points for the writing, two points for Eduardo, and 0.1 for Trent. I definitely heard some NIN influenced track in there.

This pretty much. The soundtrack was excellent, especially the beginning which set the mood for the movie perfectly. Of course it's going to be dramatized a bit....it's Hollywood. Eisenberg's performance was top-notch as was the kid who played Eduardo. There wasn't really a bad performance actually. I was impressed with this movie and as teddy said it flew by pretty quickly.

The Spy Next Door 0.3/10

Wow this movie is bad. The dialogue is painful. Jackie Chan may be the worst actor to ever star in a major motion picture. If possible, his english is getting worse.

Paranormal Activity

I don't watch many horror movies. Those that I do see I usually find more disturbing than scary (The Exorcist is a good example of that). But this but this one scared the $%#@! out of me.

I don't think I'll be seeing PA2 anytime soon. :-o

The Town - 5/10

The storyline was pretty simple-minded. It had some nice visuals and action. Renner was the only acting performance that was interesting. In the end I just did not care much about the characters and their story.
