Review: Fight Club
by eggmceye, 2000-04-16 11:07:12. No #649.

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.

lighten up fool!
[begin rant]
not every movie has to be a perfect expression of white geek angst in a decadent comercialised society.
i don't know about you but i go to a movie to be entertained and if i learn something so be it.
i thought fight club was smart, funny and YES original. Sure you could sit there and say this bit ripped off this, this bit ripped off that but hello?
u find me one movie that was TOTALLY original and made in the nineties and i'll eat my words.
i enjoyed fightclub, it fired my synapses.
sure i was sinking beers in the theatre at the time but it's all good.

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.
what was he expecting? the dark kumate?

touche, [does anyone actually know how to do the ~ above the e]
you got me there, my vision was clouded as Cameron Diaz was my hoochie of choice at the time.
and you can't use the "bait" backdoor everytime someone presents a valid point!
And it's Rebecca Romjin Stamos now baby!

Now THAT'S all good!
