“You know, you really don’t need a forensics team to get to the bottom of this. If you guys were the inventors of Facebook, you’d have invented Facebook.”

Greetings and salutations, movie aficionados!  Welcome to the second episode of our Benjamin Button-style David Fincher-fest!  Tonight, we discuss arguably his greatest film—certainly his most critically acclaimed.  It’s “The Social Network,” from Aaron Sorkin’s script that is simply on fire.  Joining us tonight as a special guest is Chadd Stoops:  actor, longtime friend of Pete and Andy, and HUGE fan of this film.  In this episode, we discuss the realities of the movie’s reality—was it fair for the filmmakers in telling this story to change the truths in order to make a more compelling film? We talk about the spot-on performances all around as well as the amazing magic Fincher worked to double Armie Hammer as the Winklevoss twins. We look at what this film is really saying about social networking and the people behind Facebook, and we discuss how “Fincher” this film really is. We also chime in on our opinions as to why it didn’t win Best Picture at the Oscars. It’s a spirited conversation about an incredibly relevant and hugely important piece of modern history. Listen in!  Oh, and since we’re talking about a movie about Facebook, make sure you go to the Next Reel group on Facebook and join us!  That way you can be a part of OUR social network!  Happy listening!
