BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
The world's greatest filmmakers tell their stories from the very first frame in their movies to the very last. Need proof? Just watch the amazing supercut below, and you'll notice just how many brilliant films have beginnings and endings that work in stunning tandem.
So what’s the main thrust of the argument? Obviously, stop reading this is you haven’t yet seen or read Fight Club, and still want to go into the story unspoiled.
Today is the day when, all around the world, fireworks are ignited as people celebrate the departure of 2014 and the arrival of 2015. So it seems only appropriate that we would end our year in cinema with a bang as well:
To celebrate the 15th anniversary of Fight Club’s release the boys over at Honest Trailers have given them the only present that they could possibly have mustered. They’ve critiqued its every frame in intimate detail for the rest of the world to laugh and joke over. David Fincher will be so grateful.

Spoiler alert if you still haven't seen Fight Club! There are certain movies that offer a twist so drastic, when it's revealed, we find ourselves wanting to re-watch the entire movie to see just how much of the truth of the situation was staring us in the face the entire time.
I know, we’re not supposed to talk about Fight Club, but I think it’s ok to talk about Fight Club, as in the book, the movie and the anticipated sequel that author Chuck Palahniuk is penning. We learned this summer that author Chuck Palahniuk was writing a sequel to the 1996 novel Fight Club — a book that was later adapted into the film by David Fincher, starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton.
With Pitt on the brain, we're setting out to change that perception of him as a handsome guy who can't act his way out of a paper bag. As it turns out, he's got an entire career's worth of excellent performances to prove his talent, starting even in his earliest days as more of a pin-up boy than the Hollywood powerhouse he is today. Here are five examples of Pitt performances that don't just prove he's got talent
I don't just feel the need to stand up for the movies of the last decade because I believe they're as well-written and memorable as anything that's come before, but because I can come up with five more recent
Judging by the Friday box office numbers (the film pulled in $8 million in its opening night), many of you have seen David Fincher's The Social Network this weekend. And why wouldn't you? The film has earned
