The book is just incredible. My favorite part is when Tyler is describing what his vision of the future is. In the book it is more detailed and awesome.

My favortie Tyler is Pitt, but Norton defined greatness in Fight Club.

"Sticking feathers up your butt does not make you a chicken"

"Tyler sold his soap to department stores at $20 a bar. Lord knows what they charged. It was beautiful. We were selling rich women their own fat asses back to them. "

"Every night I died, and every night I was reborn again."

Great movie. Edward Norton was ****ing brilliant in Fight Club, so he was the better Durden.

In the world I see - you are stalking elk through the damp canyon forests around the ruins of Rockefeller Center. You'll wear leather clothes that will last you the rest of your life. You'll climb the wrist-thick kudzu vines that wrap the Sears Tower. And when you look down, you'll see tiny figures pounding corn, laying strips of venison on the empty car pool lane of some abandoned superhighway.

this is why i loved pitt

Ed Norton's name isn't Jack in the movie.


And I would say Ed Norton's Tyler wasthe one I could more see eye to eye with, and, IMO, he acted better then Crad, but Brad's Tyler was way more badass.

So, I guess Brad's Tyler was the cooler character, but Ed's Tyler was just better in every other way.

fight club is far and away my #1 movie of all time. It was the one thing that i can truly say helped me when i was going through depression. It was so reassuring to hear that all the things i didnt have or thought i couldnt be didnt really matter anyway. For that reason i have to say pitt-Durden was better just because he was so adament in his message.

i know that it technically wasnt but, he is often reffered to in that way by fans because of the way he is reading those organ pamphlet things and he says things like: i am jacks crushed spirit or whateverrandombodypartyouwanttoputinhere

Yeah, his name was Tyler, but until you find that out, some people call him "Jack", referring to his thoughts where he says stuff like "I am Jack's cold sweat" or my favorite "I am Jack's smirking revenge"

also not correct, his name was not tyler, his alter egos name was tyler, his name before the personality tyler was created is never revealed (in the movie anyway, i have yet to read the book so i dont know )

^^his name isn't Tyler. Tyler Durden is his alter-ego, but tyler isn't actually his name. That's why he's credited as "narrator" in the credits, and why, for example, he looks crestfallen when Meat Loaf says "have you heard of tyler durden?"

He doesn't have a name, I think he's supposed to be a sort of everyman.

edit: above beat me to it. his name isn't given in the book either. I call him "edward norton" in both. Sort of like how I told my friend about how Hunter S. Thompson wrote Fear and Loathing about the time he went to Vegas with Benicio del Torro.

Have you seen the movie? The main character's name was not revealed until he finds out that he, in fact, is Tyler Durden. Therefore, his name, without a doubt, is Tyler Durden. You just don't find that out until later in the movie, and some call him Jack early in the movie.

Is real name isn't Tyler. He sometimes assumed the when he became "Tyler" but his actual given name, the name that the narrator, while he's himself, thinks his name is must be something different. Marla and The Space Monkeys come to know him as Tyler but it's just an assumed name.

yessir you are correct, and i think your right about the everyman thing, hence why he is given a name like jack.. Thats pretty off the shelf(well for those of us in america anyway)
also if you watch the cast commentary(which is very good, except for Helana bonham carters parts) edward calls his character by the name Jack

Yeah Norton's character name isn't mentioned, not even in the book. So he's referred to as Narrator. Jack is only the reference to the first-person organs, in the book it's actually Joe because he was the actual guy who wrote these articles in Reader's Digest.

Some interesting differences between the movie and book too. Like in the book he doesn't meet Tyler on the plane, in the book Tyler kills his boss, in the book there is a bunch of testicles in the fridge and the end is very different in the book.

You have seriously not lived if you haven't read the book though.

i just finished reading the book and one thing confused...
did he die or not?
#35
What? Brad Pitt's version of Tyler Durden is something Norton created in his mind, and he most likely gave Pitt his actual name after he started using fake names at the help centers and meetings. Norton's actual, real, birth name is Tyler mother****ing Durden.

***SPOILER***


no. He's in a mental institution, but refers to it as heaven, and refers to his doctor as God. this is why, for instance, Marla is able to visit him (or call him, i forget which). Read through it again with that in mind and it all falls into place.
