Merry Christmas everyone!  I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful Christmas.

A friend recommended I check out Gone Girl.  He had read the book and watched the movie and was very pleased with both.  I had only heard about this movie, saw it in some previews like Entertainment Weekly (but still didn’t read the articles), David Fincher and saw that it had Ben Affleck in it.  If I’m being honest, I didn’t really care for what Ben Affleck was doing before he would debut as the Bat in 2016.

And that’s another case of my dumb ignorance.

Gone Girl, as supported by the hype and reviews, was an incredible movie.  It was stylish, beautifully and magnetically acted, and the story was so damn entertaining.  Here’s a relatively spoiler free review.

If you are uninitiated with the premise, please watch the movie first before reading this review.  Going into it dry is honestly the best way to go about it.  This review will be try to be spoiler free, but I’ll probably bring things up that might stay with you as you watch the movie.  Reading this will probably be raising your suspicions when you finally decide to watch it.

Rooney Mara is one of my favorite actresses.  She was adorable in The Social Network and she absolutely killed it as Lisbeth Salander in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.  I think that’s where I truly first ‘fell in love’ with her.  The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’s Lisbeth Salander is a girl I fell in love with in Steig Larsson adaptation.  There’s something about her distinct bone structure and her beautiful take one of the most interesting characters ever created. So I had a little fun compiling this fairly large gallery of some of my favorite shots of Rooney Mara.

It must be pretty cool that Fight Club is popular with the crowd these day.  Social networking has allowed us to share our love for different things.  Through Facebook, Fight Club has gotten pretty popular and when things trend on Facebook, it labels it as ‘talking about’.  Which brings us to this hilarious image of Fight Club’s page for Facebook and it shows that 58 thousand people are talking about it.  I’m pretty sure the first 2 rules are that you do NOT talk about fight club.  Hilariously ironic.

David Fincher is clearly one of the best directors out there today.  The Social Network, Se7en, Fight Club, Dragon Tattoo and more.  He’s one of the most stylish and ambitious directors making some of the best stories out there today.  Here’s an interview of him talking about each of his films.  If you’ve seen his movies, it’s always interesting to see his thoughts on his movies.

David Fincher remains today to be one of the most consistently good directors and has been recognized by his peers and critiques as a excellently stylish filmmaker with excellent taste.  So when I heard his next project after The Social Network was based on some book, I was curious.  By the time the first trailer came out, I didn’t really understand what was going on, but recognized the stylish editing he had done and realized that maybe I should jump on this bandwagon.  So hit the jump to get the rest of the story of how Stieg Larsson encaputred me in his universe and how I fell in love with Lisbeth Salander.

One of film’s [some will argue literature] most influential and bad-ass figures, Tyler Durden, has at one point influenced us all to ‘f*** our mediocre lives and start living’.  His message has easily corrupted the minds of relatable ‘everymen’ who have stable jobs and has persuaded them to abandon their jobs, stability, and sanity to beat the living s*** out of each other in the basement of some bar.  This is not an easy task.  He is what every man wants to be at their most basic instinct.  So I dedicate today’s post to a Character Profile of Tyler Durden.  Spoilers follow.
