Only just watched this movie and i gotta say... its the best ive ever seen. Not cos of the violence or anything but cos the plot is just unbelievably awesome. i also reckon that some of the views on life in the movie are pretty interesting. anyone else like it because of its cleverness?

Yeah, it's one of my favourite movies. It's one of those movies I can just pop in the DVD and watch no matter what mood I'm in.

Yeah it's good. Far from best I've ever seen though...

Yeah, it's one of my favourite films. You should know that almost everyone who has seen it loves it though, so you're just going to get the exact same response from everyone, making this thread a little boring and pointless.

Fight Club is ****ing immense. Seriously, brilliant plot. Brad Pitt and Edward Norton bring that film to life.

No, to my knowledge most people enjoy the storyline equally. Personally, I found a lot of the visuals slightly grotesque (although I'm quite desenstised really), but understood that it was an element of the story, and added to the depressing apathy of the environment they presented.

Absolutely loved it. The dry humor. The cleverness of the script. The excellent cast.

Other movies in similar style:
Snatch (also with Brad Pitt)
Pulp Fiction (twisted script)
Memento (this has got to be the most original idea in decades)
Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (another great Guy Ritchie script)

Really? I thought that film was sub par. It gets touted around as the greatest and I thought it was bad, bordering on terrible. I know it's all opinions, just funny how what you think is best, is one of the ones at the bottom of my list.


On topic, Fight Club is an awesome film, but trying to explain it to people is hard though.
No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable

I would probably add The Machinist to that list too.

Also, Christian Bale > Brad Pitt.

Thanks. I haven't seen it but I'll definitely check it out.

Fight Club is an awesome film to watch if you want to think, but Memento beats it in that catagory, as for favourite film, probably something by Kevin Smith or Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

Apprentley when they were writing fight club they didn't actually decide the big plot twist (spolier safe) till about half way through writing it.
If you liked this go watch Memento as Withakay said, also one of my favourite films.

I'm not sure if this is common knowledge or not but I didn't see it mentioned, you know the blonde guy who gets the **** kicked out of him by the main guy? (not Tyler, but I've forgotten his name)

That = Jared Leto from 30 Seconds To Mars.

Lol, I know, I only found out about a month ago in Film Studies my reaction was...
"If you don't show it, I cannot grope it."

In the book, how does it end? The version I read ends with the main character in a mental institution where he still seems to be in Tyler's plan. However, one of my friends claims the one he read ends with him dying with Tyler.
I get very tense around apples...Well, I get very tense generally. I think I've fallen into the trap of blaming fruit.

And I agree with this. It's a brilliant film, and after all the hype I heard I had high expectations. Luckily it lived up to them. But you can sort of see it coming.

You never find out the main character's name, but I assume you mean the actor Edward Norton?


also, brilliant film, fantastic book.
