See Reddit users’ favorite movie from each year

2 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Throughout the summer, an admin on the r/movies subreddit has been leading Reddit users in a poll of the best movies from every year for the last 100 years called 100 Years of Yearly Cinema. The poll concluded three days ago, and the list of every movie from 1914 to 2013 has been published today.

Users were asked to nominate films from a given year and up-vote their favorite nominees. The full list includes the outright winner along with the first two runners-up from each year. The list is mostly a predictable assortment of IMDb favorites and certified classics, but a few surprise gems have also risen to the top of the crust, including the early experimental documentary Man With a Movie Camera in 1929, Abel Gance’s J’Accuse! in 1919, the Fred Astaire film Top Hat over Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps in 1935, and Stanley Kubrick’s The Killing over John Ford’s »

Video Study of David Fincher's Directing Techniques

1 September 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Titled "The Fincher Effect" and made by Karan Chandra Bose, this 15min supercut of David Fincher's directing techniques is ultra fascinating. This video is over a year old but as Fincher has yet to release a film since its release, the video study is still current. I pretty much love or enjoy all his films and he's one of my favorite directors.

Just for fun, I've listed all of Fincher's films in order of my most favorite to least.

Fight Club Panic RoomThe Social NetworkZodiacSe7enThe Girl with the Dragon TattooThe Game The Curious Case of Benjamin ButtonAlien 3

Obviously your own personal list would be different. It's a fun exercise if you want join in on the comments.

3 of the Greatest Book to Movie Adaptations

1 September 2014 6:27 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anthony Hodgson on his three greatest book to movie adaptations…

American Psycho

Author, Bret Easton Ellis.

Screenplay, Mary Harron & Guinevere Turner.

Upon its original publication in 1991, American Psycho was marred by controversy, and it’s no surprise considering one of the chapters is called ‘Killing Child at Zoo’, which was sensibly not included in the film. The satire focuses on Patrick Bateman, a cold blooded narcissistic ‘yuppie’ who spends his days listening to Phil Collins in his plush Wall Street office, but spends his nights brutally murdering prostitutes and homeless people. Harron & Turner were set with the tough task of portraying the comedic elements of the book whilst keeping it’s gruesome themes.

And they nailed it. From the opening credits of blood-like condiments dripping across the screen, to the famously ambiguous ending, it is easy to tell that they truly understood what Ellis was trying to say. And through »

What The O.C.'s Seth Cohen did for geekdom

31 August 2014 7:22 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Seth Cohen's character in The O.C. was much more than just a nerd punch-line, Wil argues, he paved the way for comic-book movie success...

We all have touchstones in adolescent life that end up shaping who we become. I’m sure we all share a few of them. Maybe it’s Holden Caulfield. Maybe it’s Kurt Cobain. Maybe it’s The Smiths or Fight Club or Ghost World. All of those had an effect on me, but I’m not ashamed to say that the one who had the biggest effect was Seth Cohen, a character in the early 2000s Fox teen soap opera The O.C.

Seth Cohen was awesome. He was awkward and read Chuck Klosterman and drew superheroes and wore the coolest t-shirts. He brought comic books, twee indie rock and snarky internet knowingness to a show few would associate with geekiness, and blasted all those things into the mainstream. »

Watch David Fincher’s Stylish Ads for Gap

28 August 2014 8:51 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

I’m pretty sure if you are checking out this post, you are most likely excited for David Fincher’s newest film, Gone Girl, set to release in early October. In the meantime while we sit and wait in anticipation, Gap has released four stylish ads as part of their new “Dress Normal” campaign – and all four spots were directed by the man himself. Leave it Fincher to completely strip away those earthy Gap colors, and showoff their new collection in stylish, cinematic black-and-white instead. The acclaimed director of such films as Fight Club, Zodiac, Se7en and The Social Network, is not, on the surface, who you’d expect to be associated with Gap’s bright persona; but these spots do tie into Gap’s product lineup for fall, which is heavy on black and gray denim. Taglines for the campaign include “Black is a color,” “Don’t be afraid of the dark, »

Watch: 4 Stylish Black & White Gap Ads Directed By David Fincher

28 August 2014 8:04 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It's too long (almost three years) since we had a new film from David Fincher, the director having spent time away with TV series "House Of Cards," and with his frustrating and ultimately unfulfilled quest to make "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea." But the wait is almost over: it's just a few weeks before "Gone Girl" premieres at the New York Film Festival. But to tide us over for one of the most anticipated films of the fall, four new commercials helmed by the "Fight Club" and "Social Network" director have arrived. Working in the advertising world is nothing new for Fincher, but the four spots are for a brand that you wouldn't traditionally associate with the director: the Gap. Yep, everyone's second-favorite khaki emporium have hired Fincher for a new campaign, and they've dumped their pastel and celeb-heavy approach for the director's technique. The ads are still pretty terrific, displaying »

'Gone Girl' Director David Fincher Sells Sexy in Four New Gap Ads (Video)

28 August 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filmmaker David Fincher is one of the greatest directors currently living, having given us genuine masterpieces like "Fight Club" and "Zodiac." He also, occasionally, needs to get paid. So every so often he directs very expensive (and expensive-looking) commercials for companies who want his distinctive look and style for their products. And just like in his feature film work, the results are almost always brilliant (like a series of deliriously hilarious Nike commercials he directed in the nineties that featured Dennis Hopper as an unhinged referee).

Fincher's latest commercial work, as Adage points out, is for the Gap, who are doing a massive rebranding this fall. They're attempting to move away from the "chinos your less cool coworkers wear" image into something sexier, more vital, and definitely more youthful. The opening salvo in this campaign are a series of black-and-white commercials artfully directed by Fincher that are really, really cool. »

German Films said today that its nine-person jury has selected Dominik Graf’s Beloved Sisters as Germany’s official submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar race.

Tyler Perry Would Have Turned Down 'Gone Girl' if He Knew Who David Fincher Was

27 August 2014 6:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

A major player in the movie industry not knowing who David Fincher is seems impossible. Even if you've never seen the likes of Se7en or Fight Club or Panic Room, the man's received two Oscar nominations for Best Director in the past five years. Fincher is big-game Hollywood talent. If you're involved in the industry, you'd have to at least know who he is, right? Well, no. Not if Tyler Perry is to be believed. The creator of the Madea series and a seemingly endless supply of other low-budget, high-earning hits is actually in David Fincher's new movie Gone Girl, but he revealed to New York Magazine that he wouldn't have said yes to the movie if he knew who David Fincher was: "When he agreed to play Gone Girl’s charismatic defense attorney...

Tyler Perry Wouldn't Have Done Gone Girl If He'd Known How Popular It Was

27 August 2014 10:37 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Tyler Perry's social network apparently didn't include David Fincher prior to Gone Girl. During an interview about the movie with Vulture, the Madea writer-director-actor said he never would have signed on to the project if he'd known how popular the book was or been familiar with Fincher's career, which includes blockbuster films like The Social Network and Fight Club. "I had no sense of that," he said of all the anticipation around the movie adaptation of Gillian Flynn's best-selling crime thriller, in which he stars as attorney [...] »

Tyler Perry Goes from Not Knowing Who David Fincher is to Praising Him and 'Gone Girl'

27 August 2014 9:03 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

On Monday we learned from an interview with New York Magazine (via Yahoo) that before signing on to star in Gone Girl for director David Fincher (Se7en, Fight Club, The Social Network), Academy member, director, actor, screenwriter and producer Tyler Perry had never heard of Fincher, wasn't familiar with his work and had no idea about the popularity of Gillian Flynn's novel from which the film is based. Perry has now said pretty much the same thing in a new interview with Vulture, though this time with a little bit of praise added to the quote. "I had no sense of how big the book was," Perry said. "If I had, I probably would have walked away from it. If I had known ... This is the honest-to-God's truth. If I had known who David Fincher was, and his body of work ... If I had known that the book was so popular, »

Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike exchange vows in new 'Gone Girl' TV spot

26 August 2014 12:47 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The "for better or for worse" part of the traditional wedding vow gets stretched to the breaking point in this new TV spot for David Fincher's upcoming thriller "Gone Girl." After flashing back to a quick meet-cute between future spouses Nick (Ben Affleck) and Amy (Rosamund Pike), Amy goes missing and the questions roll in. Where is she? Was she murdered? Did Nick kill her for the insurance money? How will co-stars Neil Patrick Harris and Tyler Perry fair in such dark territory?  Based on the bestseller by Gillian Flynn, the dim and gritty-looking "Gone" looks like it'll fit in nicely with such other feel-good Fincher flicks like "Seven," "Fight Club," "Zodiac," "The Social Network" and "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo." The brief clip also gives us a glimpse of co-stars Kim Dickens, Patrick Fugit and hear a snippet of Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross' score. Watch »

Tyler Perry Never Heard of David Fincher Until Joining His Gone Girl Film

26 August 2014 3:25 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Tyler Perry is incredibly successful when it comes to his Madea movies and his many TV shows, but he also likes to take supporting roles (and one lead role) in studio movies. But apparently he feels very uncomfortable joining the cast of films that are under the direction of top Hollywood directors. So why is he in David Fincher's "Gone Girl"? According to Perry, he had no idea who Fincher was. "I probably would have walked away from ['Gone Girl'] if I had known who David Fincher was and his body of work, or if I'd known the book was so popular," said Perry. "I would have said 'No' and my agent knew that! He didn't tell me until after I signed on!" The entire quote sounds bizarre. Is it possible that Perry never heard of the man who made "Fight Club," "Se7en," "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," "Zodiac," "The Social Network, »

Tyler Perry Had No Idea Who One Of The Best Directors In The World Was

25 August 2014 3:38 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Tyler Perry is an above-average director, a money-making machine and by all accounts, a pretty affable guy. One thing he is not, however, is a film scholar. He proved that this week when he casually mentioned he had no idea who the hell David Fincher was until after he accepted a role in the acclaimed director.s newest adaptation, Gone Girl. Speaking to New York Magazine, Perry outlined some fun stories about singing along with Ben Affleck and discussed the pressures of playing a character from a book adaptation. Not surprisingly, however, those statements aren.t getting quite as much press as his casual reveal that he wasn.t at all familiar with David Fincher. Like David Fincher, David Fincher. The dude who directed Se7en, Fight Club and The Social Network. Here.s a portion of the exact quote, courtesy of Yahoo. "I probably would have walked away from »

Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne Is A Fan Of What?!

25 August 2014 9:32 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

[Beware Of *Spoilers* Below!]

Thanks for Batman-News, we may have just gotten a little insight into what Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne may be like. According to the site, they've got the scoop on one of the man's hobbies- and it's one that seems pretty fitting to the character.

Bruce likes himself some Mma.

Their anonymous source claims that a scene was recently shot in a place that was turned into a mock-underground Mma arena. It evoked thoughts of Fight Club, and included a large crowd of men placing bets, as underground brawlers duke it out center stage. Wayne apparently shows up, which causes a bit of a stir as the onlookers are surprised to see a billionaire alone in this dark, violent, seedy place. As he places a bet and goes to the bar, he nonchalantly explains to a stunned patron, "I'm kind of a night person."

This sounds about right. It definitely »
