Skarach's world

Geeks of the Dark Side

Recovering from a stag weekend and “airplane ear” I caught up on some movies recorded on Sky+. One of these was The Social Network. Now I am a big fan of David Fincher but I confess I was not too excited about this before, despite the great reviews. I should have known better – it really is as good as many people have said. Indeed, one or two scenes are quite haunting. Accepting that this is a dramatised – and disputed – account, I felt I was watching something like Revenge of the Sith in its depiction of betrayal! There are issues with it  – the dialogue is smart, witty, clever, but perhaps too much so? At least I got to finally like the Trent Reznor soundtrack, having only heard – and not liked – bits and pieces of it.
