To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Make no mistake, this is a highly intelligent film with great acting and great camera work. Helena Bonham-Carter demonstrates she's got a life outside Merchant Ivory. My only problem was that the film made me uncomfortable, and there were moments of violence that made me want to retch. Perhaps it was a reminder that I'm a middle of the road, comfortable, conventional consumer - the sort of person who needs to be transformed into a real human being by joining a Fight Club. I didn't really enjoy this film, although it held my attention until the end (which I confess I didn't fully understand).
This film is a classic. Great movie with an excellent plot twist. You have to see this film, it must be on everyone's list. It's a beautifully made, and acted film. There is no weak link in this film, all the actors are fantastic. Brad Pitt pulls of a stellar performance. Must buy.
Fight Club is a very interesting movie, but I'm not going to review the movie, because that has been reviewed here hundreds of time.
The bluray: before I bought this, I was doubtful whether it would matter to have this movie on bluray. I can say I am satisfied with this HD version. The sound is very clear and the music in this film (in the beginning for example) seems spiced up compared to the dvd version and is cleary superior. The picture quality is robust: this movie had some soft grain, but I think that it was the intention of the moviemaker. Somehow, in this movie, it adds character. There's also an interesting depth to the picture which I cant recall from the dvd. Furthermore, a lot of extra detail can be seen when watching this on blu ray. There are some documentaries on the disc, but I didnt watch any of them so I cant comment on them.
In short: if you like this movie, and dont own it yet on dvd (I didnt own it yet), you should definitely buy the blu ray, its worth the extra money because it sounds (a lot) better and it looks better (and grittier). If you already own the dvd, it depends on how much you like this movie. I wouldnt buy it again if that were the case.
I had watched Fight Club just after it first came out on DVD, and mostly remembered it for its IKEA scene... For the rest, it's a very rough movie with to me still a very unsatisfactory final scene, I felt rotten that the story wasn't dissolved the way I would've liked to see it. But, hey, it's a cult movie, so there will be legions out there, happy with this non-dissolving :-)!
I'm not sure why I liked this film. It doesn't make a lot of sense. Thank goodness for DVD technology, I flicked back a few times to figure out what was going on. Brad Pitt very good. Well worth a watch.
