EU News Wrap, October 3 – What happened today

Monday, 3rd October 2011 16:35 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Sorry, my Prada’s at the cleaners along with my hoodie and my fuck-you flip-flops, you pretentious douchebag… You better lawyer-up, asshole, ‘cause I’m not comin’ back for 30 percent, I’m comin’ back for everything. – Eduardo Saverin, The Social Network.

I only watched The Social Network for the first time at the beginning of this year when it got its home release and, quite honestly, why I missed this first time round at the cinema baffles me after watching it. It’s safe to say it’s now one of my favorite movies ever.

While Jesse Eisenberg is just terrific as Facebook’s co-founder Mark Zuckerberg, it’s Andrew Garfield that stole it as Eduardo Saverin just for his final speaking part in the movie alone, part of which I’ve quoted above. Justin Timberlake – shock – actually gave a not too shabby performance of his own as Sean Parker, the paranoid and manipulative founder of Napster.

In fact, I’m writing this to Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’s soundtrack, which in itself helped made the movie become oh so great. Just a terrific film all round. Please don’t make the mistake I did by missing out on it and go rent it at least tonight or sometime soon.

Anyways, game news wise, it’s been a bit quiet on the European front today. It should hopefully pick up tonight before Bren comes back from the public holIday Australia had today. Here’s what’s happened in the past nine hours:

    The Social Network is fantastic. Best movie of 2010 and one of the best films of the decade. I’m still sad about the fact that Fincher and the movie didn’t get the oscars they deserved for this film.

    That’s interesting because I thought it was lame ass. I may give it another go to see if I can get the feel for the praise it’s getting.

    I’ve heard the same from a few others but it’s always good to see a work of art getting really different opinions. I actually thought King’s Speech was the movie that didn’t deserve the praise it received.
