If were talking about movies that should be required viewing, then in my opinion:Star Wars: A New HopeAmerican Graffiti Godfather I & IIEvil Dead IIGoodfellas(Fightclub is a great movie. Every scene has an interesting visual look. Its a special effects movie even though it appears not to be. And its actually better than the book.)
Maybe this is a stupid question, Simon, but what makes Fight Club stand out so much? I saw the poster and the trailer and it doesn't seem to be that good. I mean it looks good, don't get me wrong, but what makes it that much better than everything else?
Well, you should probably watch it rather than just looking at the poster. :PFor me, Fight Club is great in several areas -Technically: it's a ridiculously advanced film from a technical point of view, from camerawork to lighting to visual effects to sound to music to production design and costumes.Entertainment: it's exceedingly funny and very entertaining (albeit in a dark, satirical way), while still having a lot of interesting things to say. It has an anti-pretentiousness attitude which is nicely refreshing.Really, though, you should probably just watch it. It's not everybody's cup of tea, but it's a clever, sophisticated film that is phenomenally well made.
