I love David Fincher, he is definitely one of the greatest directors of all time. "Alien 3" was a dark and brooding visual take on the series, and I personally think it was an excellent installment. "Seven" is the best dark thriller/serial killer movie ever made. "Fight Club" is a hilarious and bloody roller coaster ride, my personal favorite of Fincher's movies. And, of course, let's not forget "The Game". I had heard really negative things about this movie, so I skipped out on the theater experience (I kick myself to this day). I waited until it came to Showtime, but even then I loved it. It's an excellent mystery/thriller that never really lets up once it starts going. The acting is excellent all around and the script's got some pretty good dialogue and characters. The main quirk I have with this movie is its believability factor. On your first viewing, you won't notice it too much, but you begin to notice it more and more with each subsequent viewing. There's things that just don't make sense, things that CRS couldn't possibly have controlled. It's not just good enough to suspend disbelief with this movie, you have to sever it completely. Once you do that, you should enjoy this movie as I have and continue to do.
