    Yeah, I noticed the poor CGI breath in Social Network and how the vampire attacks in Let Me In had a “Playstation look” to them. It doesn’t ruin either film (and in Let Me In is probably due to budget limitations) but it is too bad, I believe the poor special effects in Let Me In are the main thing keeping it from being the best horror film since Silence of the Lambs IMO.

    I didn’t really notice the breath. I did think the snowflakes when they were outside of the Bill Gates speech were pretty laughable, though.

    What would be the point of Zuckerberg suing, anyway? He is rich beyond his wildest dreams.

    Regarding the cgi, much ado about nothing
