Why Does Justin Timberlake Have an Erection?: The Social Network Meta Review



Why Does Justin Timberlake Have an Erection?: The Social Network Meta Review

Robert Tumas just arrived in Union Square with his wife and they are about to see “The Social Network”…but first, a Thai dinner for said wife. I wonder if Zuckerburg likes Thai food.

Robert Tumas likes Thai food.

Robert Tumas just paid for two tickets to see “The Social Network” and overdrafted his joint bank account. He is kicking himself for not just buying a cam recording of the movie illegally on Canal Street.

Robert Tumas has until 11pm tomorrow night to replace the overdrafted funds, thanks to Chase Bank’s polite overdraft policy.

Robert Tumas is settled in at the theater and is fucking amped up, having just seen the trailer for “True Grit” with Matt Damon and Jeff Bridges.

Robert Tumas LOL when he hears his wife remark that the only reason they chose Jesse Eisenberg was because they couldn’t afford Michael Cera.

Robert Tumas decides that going into debt in the name of supporting the movie industry is good thing.

Robert Tumas likes Matt Damon.

Robert Tumas has a headache after the first 20 minutes of The Social Network and its snappy “Gilmore Girls”-on-cocaine dialogue, specifically the opening bar table beer scene, not to mention the dizzying mega hack that the Zuck digs into to get back at Erica Allbright who called him an “asshole.”

Robert Tumas is wondering why the shit Zuck runs around like that all the time with a backpack on and one hand in his pocket. This is clearly why Sorkin couldn’t work in that sweet walk and talk thing he does.

Robert Tumas thinks that Erica Allbright is actually the de facto founder of Facebook by goading a geek into nerd revenge.

Robert Tumas is trying to count the number of lawsuits brought against the Zuck-meister and realizes just how SERIOUS this crazy Facebook invention saga really is.

Robert Tumas actually believes that this is how students at Harvard talk because of “The Social Network.” Also, “Good Will Hunting.”

Robert Tumas joined the group I’m Matt Damon’s #1 Fan.

Robert Tumas is astounded at how snappy the dialogue is. This movie is definitely “well written.” Also, the audience loves the joke about Zuckerberg checking the female lawyers math, “1k + 18k = 19k!” Lots of LOL’ing.

Robert Tumas catches first literary reference of the movie. The Phoenix Club list serve password is Jaberwock—Zuck informs us it’s a Lewis Carroll thing. Zuck knows literature, everything.

Lewis Carroll Righteo! I’m a contemporary reference! Zuck-man you deserve the Vorpal sword!

Robert is now friends with Lewis Carroll.

Robert Tumas is astounded at how badly Zuck is screwing his best friend—this was not in the Welcome to Facebook letter from Zuck that came with his Facebook account.

Robert Tumas wishes he were just watching the “True Grit” trailer over and over again.

Robert Tumas has just quietly mentioned the run time of the movie to his wife.

Robert is no longer listed as “in a relationship.”

Matt Damon likes this.

Robert Tumas Fuck you Matt Damon.

Robert Tumas wishes he hadn’t accepted Aaron Sorkin’s friend request.

Robert Tumas Holy shit!!! Timberlake is the Napster guy! WTF is he doing in this movie? I thought it was about Social Networking not illegal P2P Filesharing.

Robert Tumas swears Timberlake totally had an erection in that first scene with the undergrad in boy shorts.

Robert Tumas wonders why James Franco hasn’t shown up in this movie yet.

Robert Tumas thinks it was not a very big erection either.

Robert Tumas is married to Candice Cooper.

Robert Tumas is overjoyed that his wife has returned and hasn’t run off with Matt Damon.

Robert Tumas thinks California is truly the land of milk and honey—and cocaine. He hopes he will be suave enough to go there some day.

Robert Tumas can’t believe that James Franco didn’t think of Facebook first. He must have been taking his one hour of allotted sleep per year when Zucky thought of it.

Robert Tumas takes a look at all the cocaine at the house party and finally understands why they needed Sorkin to do this screenplay.

Robert Tumas is literally the only one that LOL’s at the crack on French Lit by the British guy: “My daughter’s at Cambridge studying French Literature, I didn’t even know there was such a thing.”

Henry James likes this.

Robert Tumas is still laughing. Nobody understands him. He is a misunderstood critic.

Candice CooperI understand you Bobby.

Robert Tumas whoa! Justin Timberlake is like the best Social Networker ever. He talks faster than Asian co-eds can suck back Apple Tini’s.

Robert Tumas Facebook is worth 25 billion dollars! Why the hell is Zuck even bothering with these lawsuits? Just pay them off ferchrisakes.

Robert Tumas wonders why it’s up to the girl from the American version of the Office to tell Zuck that he’s not an asshole even though she has a fringe part in the movie at best.

Robert Tumas realizes that, oh yea, it’s because everyone who actually knows him, still thinks he is.

Robert Tumas hopes Erica Allbright never accepts the youngest, accidental billionaire’s friend request. Ever.

Watch: The Long-Awaited Deadwood Movie Gets Teaser Trailer and Premiere Date

Welcome to fucking Deadwood!

At long last, we’re finally going to see more of Deadwood. Very soon after the HBO series’s cancellation in 2006, creator David Milch announced that he agreed to produce a pair of two-hour films to tie up the loose ends left after the third season. It’s been a long road since, and after many false starts over the years, production on one standalone film started in fall 2018. And today we have a glorious teaser for the film, which releases on HBO on May 31. Below is the official description of the film:

The Deadwood film follows the indelible characters of the series, who are reunited after ten years to celebrate South Dakota’s statehood. Former rivalries are reignited, alliances are tested and old wounds are reopened, as all are left to navigate the inevitable changes that modernity and time have wrought.

And below is the teaser trailer:

Deadwood: The Movie airs on HBO on May 31.

When it rains, it pours.

When it rains, it pours. Four days after Quentin Tarantino once more laid into John Ford in a piece written for his Beverly Cinema website that saw the filmmaker referring to Ford’s She Wore a Yellow Ribbon as Tie a Yellow Ribbon, and two days after Columbia Pictures released poster art for QT’s ninth feature that wasn’t exactly of the highest order, the studio has released a teaser for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. The film was announced early last year, with Tarantino describing it as “a story that takes place in Los Angeles in 1969, at the height of hippy Hollywood.”

Set on the eve of the Manson family murders, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood tells the story of TV actor Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his stunt double, Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt), as they try to get involved in the film industry. The film also stars Margot Robbie (as Sharon Tate), Al Pacino, the late Luke Perry, Damian Lewis, Dakota Fanning, Emile Hirsch, Timothy Olyphant, Kurt Russell, and Bruce Dern in a part originally intended for the late Burt Reynolds.

See the teaser below:

Columbia Pictures will release Once Upon a Time in Hollywood on July 26.

Watch the Stranger Things 3 Trailer, and to the Tune of Mötley Crüe and the Who

A wise woman once said that there’s no such thing as a coincidence.

A wise woman once said that there’s no such thing as a coincidence. On Friday, Jeff Tremaine’s The Dirt, a biopic about Mötley Crüe’s rise to fame, drops on Netflix. Today, the streaming service has released the trailer for the third season of Stranger Things. The clip opens with the strains of Mötley Crüe’s “Home Sweet Home,” all the better to underline that the peace and quiet that returned to the fictional rural town of Hawkins, Indiana at the end of the show’s second season is just waiting to be upset again.

Little is known about the plot of the new season, and the trailer keeps things pretty vague, though the Duffer Brothers have suggested that the storyline will take place a year after the events of the last season—duh, we know when “Home Sweet Home” came out—and focus on the main characters’ puberty pangs. That said, according to Reddit sleuths who’ve obsessed over such details as the nuances of the new season’s poster art, it looks like Max and company are going to have to contend with demon rats no doubt released from the Upside Down.

See below for the new season’s trailer:

Stranger Things 3 premieres globally on July 4.
