    if you don't mind the mixture and blurring of truth and fiction...

    That would cover around 99% of movies out there ;)

    Down to 98% on the RT scale :) Excellent considering they are around 90 reviews and counting. And no not planning to go see it, though it probably wont get a cinema release Down Under as it wont appeal to our film goers.

    Ouch "The Last Airbender" is at 6%, which reminds must check the overnight box office figures ....

    I am looking forward to seeing Jesse Eisenbergs's performance. He did an excellent job in Zombieland movie. Besides, kudos to the screenwriters, producers, studio execs, actors and the crew for making Mark Zuckerberg, deFacebook founder, shell out $100 millions for a donation stint called "Saving MY Face and Grace". :)

    I will see it, it still has a 100% from all the major critics....the minor ones drag it to 97%

    I can't wait for it tomorrow night.

    I don't use Facebook and couldn't care less about it or its founders, so... no.

    Just got back from seeing it... Brilliant movie.

    Very "talkie" so ironically the typical FB user will probably hate it, but it is a great piece of cinema, and a really interesting insight into the Founder of FB.

    As someone who lives in Geekdom it is really cool to see it portrayed on the big screen, and done actually quite well.

    Aspies FTW lol.

    I'm interested in seeing it, but I'll probably wait until it hits my Netflix ;)

    Definately worth catching if you like Geeks and are interested in the history (even very recent history) of the Internet.

    Define "major critic", we may have very different views on that one, for example I think Egbert needs a baseball bat to the head.

    Moving along ....

    Saw it last night, Director is David Fincher (Alien 3, Se7en, Zodiac, amongst others) so you know you are in for a good time. Don't think it's going major down under considering the number of people checking their cell phones during the movie, clearly FB users who didn't get what they expect, but a wide sweep of demographics. Probably can wait on rental release as it's pretty much a lot of talking.

    Great movie for geeks for sure !!

    But where is the forum world movie ?

    With the drama we have seen of late it would make a great horror movie !!

    Yep... think I'll be waiting for it on Foxtel demand / Apple TV.

    I saw this a couple weeks ago, for one reason only, Aaron Sorkin was involved. The man is a film (and TV) god as far as I'm concerned, and his work is always entertaining and unique. Wha'd I think of it? Well, obviously it wasn't all true, but it was very entertaining and informative. Of course, I don't buy everything 100% the movies (or TV) tells me, so I did some research on it before and after.

    Going by the previews, I never would have seen it. I'm thankful that I did give it a chance, because it was definitely interesting. Not a documentary, but not intended to be one

    It was boring.

    A documentary would've been better.
