The probable Oscar Best Picture winner, The Social Network, is finally available on DVD and BluRay today!

It would be easy to write a million words about the wordy drama and how great it is, but instead I decided to keep it short and sweet.  That way, you have more time to watch the movie before the Oscars as much as you possibly can.  Consider this my 256 word review of The Social Network!
When I heard about The Social Network and how good it was, I knew I had to watch it under the perfect circumstances. Because of tweens, cellphones and creaky seats, I was way too nervous to watch it in the theatres. So I waited until it came out on DVD. When the screener showed up at my door, I immediately opened it and settled into my overly comfy couch. To ensure that I really appreciated the Aaron Sorkin written drama, I figured out how to turn off my phone and computer (it doesn’t happen often) and enjoyed the movie like we used to be able to.

What happened next was three straight days of viewing The Social Network. It’s not that the movie is confusing, it’s that it is so good I wanted to be sure that I didn’t miss a single thing.

If you haven’t seen it yet, you must know that it is as good as you have heard. It met and exceeded every single one of my expectations. As someone who has  greatly the popularity of social media tools like Facebook and Twitter, it was amazing to see quickly it happend and imagine how quickly it could have ended. My only disappointment was from the lack of Farmville references. Would it have killed them to make at least one joke about the most annoying game this side of Duck Hunt?

But let’s be honest, it doesn’t really matter, The Social Network is amazing.

Simply put, I give the movie four Super Pokes out of four.
