Review: Fight Club
I just wanted to get in first and say Fight Club was Shit. There.
The good: Edward Norton; he's good value. Also where he imagines another plane colliding into his was well done. So was the maccing-on scene. The alter ego thing was clever, but not wholly original (but eh, what is?)
The bad: Brad Pitt - almost irritating.
The ugly: Everything else. I hated the chick, tho i may have been meant to. The dodgy 'lets blow some shit up - yeh!' was plain gay - anti corpratism yeh! Who the fuck is bringing u this movie? fucking hippies? NO! The billboard terrorism could have been a whole lot more interesting, considering its been done in Real Life many years ago, and a whole lot better and more creatively.
What irrited me most that i can just see this movie breeding a whole Gen-Y (the gen after X) of would-be hippy philosiphers and consumer terrorists. Excuse me, but (heh) I and a lot of other people were already questioning everything anyway, and if u needed this movie to get u off yr ARSE and get u to think, well then yr just an idiot.

for the record i heard another guy say it was shit too, but he was disapointed there wasn't more fighting in it as the name suggests.
