The Social Network trailer

So here’s the full trailer for The Social Network.  When I first heard about this movie I rolled my eyes and moved along.  I was also very disappointed that David Fincher was wasting his time making movies about the internet.  Same goes for Max Minghella.  (This was during a news cycle when people were announcing that they were making movies based on Monopoly and X-Men reboots.  I wasn’t thrilled about much that week.)

So I dismissed this movie as a waste of time and watched a million other trailers.  Then they started releasing those teasers and I realized that David Fincher is no fool, he wouldn’t choose make a movie unless it was about something that mattered.  Facebook does matter, sure I hate it, but it changed the internet.  And there was a surprising amount of drama behind the scenes.  Also this movie had to be made quickly.  Much like anything to do with Facebook, people will only care about it for a few seconds.

About the stars.  I don’t like Jesse Eisenberg.  He seems to be the only young Jewish actor around these days… sigh.  His fast-paced line delivery and bad posture drives me nuts.  Oh well, he’ll probably do a good job.  (But honestly, he’s never even tried to change his voice or mannerisms in any of his movies, and he’s done a huge variety of movies.)  Andrew Garfield, now there’s a name you know.  He’s the new Spider-Man!  I hated Tobey Maguire with a vengeance, so anyone new is good.  As for this guy… I’m reserving my judgement for a few more months.  Justin Timberlake.  Why can’t this guy get roles like this all the time?  He’s a funny guy and not a bad actor.  Then there’s Max Minghella, playing the bad guy, awesome.  He’s got a flare that no one can beat.

    Say what?!? What about Logan Lerman, Zac Efron, Joseph Gordon-Levit, Anton Yelchin, etc. They’re all Jewish. Oh yeah, and Andrew Garfield, who co-stars in this very movie (The Social Network).

    You have got to expand your horizons here.

      Haha, sorry, I was sarcastic. I’m tired of Jesse Eisenberg getting all the good leads when there are far better choices out there.. for example all the people you mentioned.

    But you have to admit he was born to play this particular role. I mean, he really looks like Mark Zuckerberg.

      That’s true. Although I think Mark has a goofiness about him that Jesse doesn’t. But I guess he was probably going through a bit too much drama to have a lot of fun.
