An Early Review of The Social Network

Friend-of-the-blog Finnian Durkan reviews The Social Network. I, for one, am really looking forward to the movie. The criticism to the movie's "I row crew" line may seem like an over-reaction, but, as a rower, I totally get it. The movie is about more than rowing, but its still significantly about rowing, and that is an important detail to overlook - a terrible case of dumbing down material in an attempt to make it easier for an audience to understand, without really asking whether the audience needs the material to be simplified.
