time for some Fight club
We can create an intelligent review/analysis of my favorite movie, Fight Club. Special emphasis must go towards the teachings of Tyler Durden and how his wisdom is the true path towards enlightenment. Give reasons why material possessions are not important as well.
This is generally how it works: someone says something, than we add onto it and respond to the prompt
It's always fun
Well, okay... Brad Pitt is too good looking to have all those bruises.
I liked it, but I found the ending dissapointing somehow.
LOVED the movie.
Tyler, the alter-ego of Norton's character, wanted to strengthen Norton by stripping him of all fear. Getting rid of material possessions makes you stop judging yourself through your possessions--and look deeper.
Is this what you are talking about?
Love the thread!
Yes Lash Goth, good. I liked the way they portrayed shizophrenia and other such problems over the course of the film.
My only downside to the movie was the length: 2 1/2 hours or so
My son forced me to watch it. It had been out for several months, and thinking it was something completely different, I hadn't been interested.
It fooled me to the very last...and gave alot of people a neat insight into mental illness.
What was your favorite part.....she asks not knowing her own answer.
I read the book first. Didn't really want to watch the movie. But BigDice brought the DVD home one day. Compared to the book the movie was not really shocking for me. I was completely caught up in the book when I read it.
Um...as odd as it seams i think and again i must emphasize that the scene is wierd but at the end when he shoots himself and they watch all of the building and so on
it all made sense at that point
haha! My sons made me watch it, too! They also made me watch American History X, for which I'm very grateful. I did like the movie Fight Club, but the ending rerally was a surprise. I was dissapointed because i like a happy ending! Overall, though, great movie. make one think.
how many personalities
We are debating at work today if the female counter part is also another personality of Norton's character....any input would be great.
Hmmm, nice twist! Can you let us know some of the arguments for or against before we decide?
my arguement is that the girl is real. norton met her in a public place. she has her own apt where she was saved from.
my co-worker's arguement is she's an alter. he thinks that norton is the only one that can see her in all the support groups. he also believes that the only ones that she ever interacts with is the two personalities of the main character.
Oh, don't get me wrong, I think she was real too. But it's an interesting diversion to try to argue that other characters in the movie were imagined.
