Get me the hell off this planet, I refuse to share it with such obvious morons.
The Social Network was honoured with four Golden Globes yesterday, suggesting the movie may be headed for Oscar glory. The fictional account of the rise of Facebook and its creator, Mark Zuckerberg, took the best drama award, best director for David Fincher, best screenplay for scribe Aaron Sorkin and best musical score.

...Ok the film played fast and loose with the facts and Bale's performance reminded me of De Niro's 'Johnny Boy' from 'Mean Streets' more than once but the chemistry between him and Wahlberg was amazing and probably down to how much time they obviously spent around each other to make the training scenes look so amazing.

(however was The West Wing so good?)
The film is good. Not what I was expecting at all. It's about the people involved and their treatment of each other more than anything technical. You could be oblivious to facebook and enjoy it. If it was really about all the webby stuff it would be dull as pants.

The film did make Zucker look an ass, but not as big an ass, he seems to be, if all the Facebook expose articles are true.
