My friends and I really wanted to see this in theaters, one was even like (hey this is the modern day history we're living through) but compared to other films we ended up waiting for disc. Should be good. I'll likely blind buy. Love Aaron Sorkin
This is a good movie but something I can save for a rental, given the fact that it's a movie that we have basically lived through. I was probably one of the last three to have gotten the last tickets to see the movie before it was sold out with two of my friends but it's not something I would want to own on DVD or on Blu-Ray. Best save it as a rental.
Although more importantly, I would rather watch it win some awards than watch the movie again.
i'm glad it's coming out so soon, I skipped it in theaters due to the thinking "who wants to see a Facebook movie", but hearing all the positive reviews towards this movie i'm intrigued and most likely picking it up day one.
Oustanding flick that I didn't expect to like that much going in. Love Fincher. So-so on Eisenberg (liked him in "Squid"...ended up thinking he was vanilla, same in everything, too similar to Cera), but he was outstanding in this. Garfield is a stud (was outstanding in "Lions 4 Lambs"). Sorkin rocks the most. Can't wait to buy this one. Hope it's loaded with goodies.
A Criterion would have been super awesome but I'll be buying this one instantly anyway. What a terrific film. It's been sweeping up all the critics awards so far and hopefully will win many statues before all is said and done. A significant film which will be remembered long after many of its peers from this year have been forgotten.
I'll buy this on the first day. Saw it in a lousy cinema where the lights were still on for half of the show and where the projector was mis-alligned or so producing a very blurred picture. Still, the movie was ABSOLUTELY GREAT!
This IS modern history we're seeing. Mark is -such- a jerk and at the same time such an amazing guy.
I just pre-ordered the HMV exclusive artwork version (I don't even know what it looks like yet!!).
Great film and I firmly believe that movies shot with RED ONE cameras produce exemplary Blu-ray transfers (Book of Eli, District 9 and Wallander are good examples). The Social Network looked glorious in the theatre and hopefully that will follow at home.
Extras look good and I really hope this becomes a classic on Blu-ray the way Se7en and Fight Club are on DVD.
