The Social Network movie review leaks have made a statement online. According to The Social Network movie review buzz, The Social Network will officially be the No. 1 Oscar favorite when it comes out next week. After bloggers and Oscar pundits started getting invited to screenings, they haven’t stopped raving about “The Facebook movie.” In fact, they may not stop raving until Oscar night, although their raves probably won’t be unanimous by then. But at the moment, The Social Network movie review hype is completely unanimous and perfect, according to Rotten Tomatoes.
Despite reviews first going online over a week ago, Rotten Tomatoes has just now included a few on their Tomatometer. In fact, the scores from their first six articles are as perfect as possible. The first six critics not only give it a thumbs it, they all are judged to give it perfect scores.
The Social Network movie review numbers on Rotten Tomatoes are 100 percent positive from six critics, with a 10 out of 10 average rating. Such an average rating is likely unheard of, even among the first batch of critics. But they are in line with the raves that have come out in recent days.
It was no surprise to some that The Social Network movie review scores were so high from bloggers and the Internet savvy. Since this is said to be the movie of their generation, skeptics may not trust them to be biased. However, critics from Variety and the Hollywood Reporter also fawned over the film yesterday, with the New York Post also giving it an early four-star write-up.
The film opens the New York Film Festival on Friday, and goes into wide release next Friday. By then, The Social Network movie review ratings probably won’t be this perfect — especially after the insanely hyped comments thus far. Yet the tide for this film stands to be very high going into Oscar season.
With David Fincher as the director, Aaron Sorkin as the writer, and with Oscar buzz for stars Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield and even Justin Timberlake, this may be the first 800 pound gorilla of awards season. Whether it has the long legs to beat film festival favorites 127 Hours, The King’s Speech and Black Swan may still be up for debate.
For the moment, it seems that every single person who has seen the film is on the bandwagon, without any reservations. When more Social Network movie review comments come in, however, a few cynics will probably pop in. Given all the early worship, they may feel required to at this point.
No one could stop Mark Zuckerberg from becoming the world’s youngest billionaire, in spite of so many people trying. If The Social Network movie review buzz can stay this high for a few more months, it may be just as unstoppable at the Oscars.
Rotten Tomatoes- “The Social Network”
New York Post- “Revenge of the nerd”
