Fight Club definitely ranks up there with my favorites. I agree the book is an excellent read and definitely worth checking out if you liked the movie.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

.....don't forget "Death to Smoochy"....i recommend this one it as iam sure the TV version will be editted

Definately a phenominal movie.

Brad Pitt is one of the best actors out there IMO. He plays the part perfectly.

The author Chuck Palahniuk is amazing- and he's actually tortured with insomnia in real life. Choke, Survivor, Lullaby are all sheer genius.

But Fight Club the movie's amazingly good too. :-D


I thought Choke was kind've annoying, but Lullaby was definitely awesome. ;-D I haven't gotten around to Survivor or the new one yet.

You didn't like Choke? I think that one and Survivor would be my favorites. :-?

Check out Survivor for sure, it's fantastic. Skip Invisible Monsters- it's truly strange and not so great.

I have Haunted waiting patiently on my bookshelf. Let me know what you think when you read it ;-D

I agree about Norton being underrated. He's been great in several films already listed, but Red Dragon was good, Primal Fear rocked, and Rounders was very good. ;-D

lol, great quote ;-D

Originally that line was going to be:

"I think you just gave me my next abortion" (or something of the sort), but the censors said a big NO to that line and they changed it.

Always pays to listen to the commentary ;-D

Oddly enough I didn't like it very well when I saw it in theaters. then I fell in love with it each time I watched it after that.
