I love this movie. Welcome to Project Mayhem! (Do not ask questions about Project Mayhem and please remember Robert Paulson).

Now have all of you enjoyed your homework assignments? Do you need any soap? I loved the happy face on the building and the double-dare project of destroying a corporate icon while trashing a coffee-mart franchise. That gets the old ball rolling!

Now where is Tyler Durden? ;)

I hated this movie when I saw it in the theater and haven't watched it since.

edit: I actually enjoyed The Notebook...in part. :)

Many would say that Alien^3 was Fincher's worst film...I say it's this one. :)

I loved this movie! One of my all time favorites. Wasn't the ball that was rolling (where Meatloaf got shot) the monument in front of the World Trade Center? It's eerie to see the buildings coming down (straight down I might add) The idea of wiping out all credit data, and giving everyone a fresh start was original. Something like this could never happen right?

I don't know. I learned from this movie that with enough soap, you can blow up anything ;)

But I assume that part of the plot of the movie was to blow up every building that had some kind of server hosting for people's credit records. I mean you'd have to know where Chase, MBNA, American Express, Target, TRW, etc. all kept their debt records - and every building with backup. In the movie, Project Mayhem was big enough and national or even international enough to encompass that. Not to mention the police and security personnel, etc. were all in on it - that's why the buildings were cleared out (talk about a massive operation that would make Osama's 3-4 building targets look pathetic next to this).

I remember when I saw this movie, it was one of those flicks that made you think alot about it for days. It brought out the Anarchist thoughts in me. Though I wouldn't act on them, I could relate to the character, and his dissatisfaction with his life. Wanting to break out of it somehow. Change the world. His other self made him do this (we don't find this out however till later) That everything you know and do and the way you live your comfotable life is nothing but crap. I love the part where he goes to support groups to make him feel something, even though he's not sick, and he meets the girl who is doing the same thing and knows his secret. This movie came out two years before any actual buildings came down in NY. It had an impact on me, and if you read up on it, others were influenced by it. Even starting their own Fight Clubs.
