THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS 'MAKING IT'
There is no such thing as "making it." If you care deeply about what you do, you'll never arrive. That's kind of the point.
Whatever happened to doing something for the sake of just doing it?
The Social Network was fun, for fun's sake. It was kinda weird to see The ____'s ex-boyfriend dramatized on film by a dorky actor and made to look like an idiot. It is a small world.
THE GIRLFRIEND: Zuckerberg stole the twins' idea!
HUGO: No, he just improved an existing idea. He was also there first. The film alleges no copy/pasting of code. But--
THE GIRLFRIEND: Still, he stole the idea.
HUGO: WHY ARE WE ARGUING ABOUT THIS!? It's a movie! 80% of it was bullshit! The legal docs tell the real story, but they're far less interesting, I'm sure. I'm hungry.
Movies like this do more bad than good.
