  1. Ugh, I thought The Social Network was severely overrated and got most of it’s attention due to the subject matter rather than the movie as a whole. I’m a big David Fincher fan and he’s never let me down. Good movie but it didn’t make my Top Ten. I thought Howl was by far the best movie of the year with it’s combination of animation, acting, and cinematography.
