Alright, alright. Se7en is not 0% good, not 30% good. The movie is right at the center of average. There are few movies that are 0% good and only Deuce Bigelow comes to mind. I'll be missing Pink Flamingos but will take your word. Shit eating isn't on my list of worthwhile entertainments.


It hurts. It hurts so bad. :cry:

Also, I'd like to contribute Heavy Metal to the 0% good category, along with House of 1000 Corpses and 10,000 BC. Just awful all of them.

There's a 100% chance I have 25% good taste in movies. I don't listen to my own opinions and advise you to do the same until I've doubled my input.

I don't care if your tastes aren't the same as mine. Although if the range in your film going history is really as limited as you say then we should make you a list of essentials, whether they be classic or just films we find to be great or close to it :)

I'd be for such a list but wouldn't want to dedicate an entire thread to it... maybe if it could be couched in general interest.

Pffh. Who doesn't enjoy chompin' down on a good turd every now and then? Why, I dare decree shit eating to be the highest form of entertainment! Once you've had someone's fecal matter in your mouth, you can never go back.

You have much to learn and like it or not, there will be a thread dedicated to your edification with contributions by all! You wanna know why? I'm making that thread!

Alright, so I just got back from the midnight showing. Put me in the "great" camp. I love Fincher and Sorkin and I never thought they'd come together to do anything, let alone a Facebook movie.

More thoughts on it later, as it is pretty late. But go see it!

Agreed. Wait, no I don't. Do I? Who knows? All I know is that the chocolate doughnut I'm currently eating has taken on an entirely new significance.

A real non-critic person loves it! Hooray!

Seriously though, that does excite me. Can't wait to see it.

Where's James' review for this film? Surely they didn't avoid review screenings?

On his site, if you waited just a little longer you would see it.

Just got back from this, and I highly recommend it. I wrote more thoughts in the Recent Reviews area. Coming from someone who previously had no real compelling interest in the film, I was surprised at how entertained I was. 9/10.

I was genuinely surprised by how good this movie is. Best of the year so far, without a doubt.

Why are people so surprised if the film is good? Its David Fincher, he has never made a particularly bad movie (you can hardly blame him for the studio affair that was Alien 3).

"Facebook movie"
"Starring Jesse Eisenberg and Justin Timberlake"

Those two facts made me skeptical even after rave reviews started coming in.

I never thought the film was going to be bad. What I did think was that it was a weird next step from a guy who was just coming off of a major misfire in Benjamin Button. I wondered if making a film about the seemingly "slight" subject of Facebook, which has really only become culturally omnipresent in the past 3-4 years, would yield interesting drama and still be relevant down the road. The early critic reviews convinced me to go see it in the theater, and sure enough, all my hesitations turned out to be misguided.

Have you forgotten the horrible shit-fest that was called The Game?

Call out the one Fincher film I haven't seen Pat (and I've never heard its that bad).
