Chasing Amy: My Reviews of David Fincher’s “Gone Girl”
If you follow me on Tumbr or Twitter, or like the Facebook page, you’ve probably seen my video review series that I started earlier in September. In that series, I reviewed Gone Girl right after I saw it on Thursday night, trying to be as spoiler free as possible, since I figured many people probably hadn’t seen it yet. You can watch that review here:
My friend Ryan from The Matinee asked me to be on his podcast about the film on Sunday. This was a very spoiler-filled discussion and let me really say how I felt about the film. You can listen to that podcast here. This is definitely a divisive film and one that everyone will be talking about. I didn’t like it, but I’m glad I saw it.

Trailer and Poster for Fincher’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
This looks…interesting. I love Fincher so I’ll put aside my dislike of Daniel Craig and see this in theaters for sure.
Movie Quote of the Day – Zodiac, 2007 (dir. David Fincher)
Templeton Peck: Paul, you wrote the Justice Department asking to be put in charge of the Zodiac investigation?
Paul Avery: I merely suggested–
Templeton Peck: On our letterhead?
Paul Avery: –that those with knowledge of the case create an information clearinghouse to promote an exchange and free flow of ideas.
Templeton Peck: And that you run it.
Paul Avery: Well, who better than me? [beat] The marked man.
