This is the first entry of a new segment of my blog titled "Movies To See". Pretty self explanatory within the title, but to further explain I will be giving the synopsis, trailer and my personal opinion on select movies that I believe are must sees for that week that will be posted every Monday morning from here on out. And with out further ado...
The Social Network
The Social Network tells the story of a young Mark Zuckerburg and Eduardo Saverin who create the social networking giant "Facebook". This is depicted as the true story behind the development of Facebook and the falling out of the two friends who are played by Jesse Eisenburg and Andrew Garfield respectively. This movie is going to be pretty damn popular due to the millions on top of millions of people who use Facebook I'm sure at least half of those users will go out and see this film. And you don't want to be THAT guy/gal that hasn't seen "The Social Network" now do you? Of course you don't. I'm actually expecting it to take opening weekend and run with it for at least 2 weeks since Jackass 3-D (October 15th) is more than likely going to challenge it for that spot.
Renee Zellweger plays a social worker who saves a girl from her abusive family, but turns out there's more to the girl than meets the eye. Also stars Jodelle Ferland and Bradley Cooper. Looks like a pretty decent horror flick that mixes in a lot of elements from past movies of the like. May not be a total original idea, but there are some innovative scenes based of the trailer alone.
Patrick Wilson plays the title character Barry Munday who suddenly wakes up in a hospital and comes to find out two of the worst things in the world for a man. 1) He's impregnated a woman and 2) He lost his family "jewels". Yes you read that correctly but of course it doesn't happen in that order or this would be considered a sci-fi rather than a comedy. Quite possibly one of the out of the box storylines I've ever heard, this movie just might be a sleeper for those who enjoy the off brand dark humor that is Little Miss Sunshine and Nacho Libre.
