Also has the general benefit of being a good film
I do too, but he has a real way with him. Big Trouble in Little China feels like one you’d dog a lot too, TBH.
stop winging and go and watch the Conversation or something until you learn to like it
what films do you like from the 70s, or even not the 70s and we could maybe recommend some stuff???
Don’t worry I’m mostly playing it up for effect - there’s plenty of 70s ones I enjoy or love! It’s just, taking a very sweeping overview, I don’t like the atmosphere and aesthetic of the 70s canon as much as the canon from any other decade, often just too dark and slow and brooding for me
that’s the most 80s one of all!
I think probably my highlight of the DiS meat on Saturday was telling @ericVI that he’s a pretentious film wanker to his face. Immensely satisfying,
Is Escape from LA worth a watch if you really loved NY?
14 - David Fincher
- The Social Network
- Gone Girl
- Benjamin Button
- The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
- Fight Club
- The Game
- Panic Room
- Alien 3
Not really sure it is.
That list is an incredible group of films that are all sorts of groundbreaking.
I mean they made a (presumably bad) remake of The Thing after 30 years despite it never being the hugest film ever and Halloween must have some stake in beginning a whole genre? Without Dark Star would we have Alien?
What a list of films that are genuinely just a joy to watch. 15 is maybe too low if anything.
Fincher is good
Se7en is a really very good film
Best Fincher: The music video for Vogue
I think Fincher is incredible.
I’ve not seen Benjamin Button and Alien 3 is obviously just a dull script and he did his best, but otherwise what a film maker.
The Mindhunter S2 opening 3 where he was directing were off the hook.
Imagine giving a shit about any of these though
Se7ens the sort of film your uncle recommends on vhs
Came here to post this
Struggling to pick one here, as I don’t dislike any of them (yes, even Benjamin Button) and rate a few of them really highly. Gone with Se7en, but could easily have picked any of Fight Club, The Game or Alien 3 (yes, really).
We’re into the realms of this poll that I can actually take part now. I.e. the directors I have actually seen films by.
Preferred Adam and Joe’s Se7en
Social Network is really underrated. And Zodiac is basically a masterpiece. Love him.
