BEST SONGS

“Where is my mind” by Pixies from Fight Club

Fincher was concerned that bands experienced in writing film scores would be unable to tie the movie’s themes together, so he sought a band which had never recorded for film. He pursued Radiohead ,but chose the breakbet producing duo Dust Brothers to score the film. The duo created a post-modern score that included drum loops, electronic scratches, and computerized samples. Dust Brothers performer Michael Simpson explained the setup: “Fincher wanted to break new ground with everything about the movie, and a nontraditional score helped achieve that.” The end credits feature the song « Where is my mind » by the Pixies.

“8th and final rule: if this is you first night at fight club, you have to fight!”

– FIGHT CLUB directed by David Fincher

fightclub

Genre : Thriller- Crime- Drama

Fight Club is a David Fincher’s movie released in 1999 based on the novel of the same name written by Chuck Palahniuk. Norton plays the unnamed protagonist, an « everyman » who is discontented with his white-collar job. He forms a “fight club” with soap maker Tyler Durden, played by Pitt, and they are joined by men who also want to fight recreationally. The film’s narrator attends support groups of all kinds as a way to “experience” something within his unfeeling, commercial existence.

Fincher intended Fight Club’s violence to serve as a metaphor for the conflict between a generation of young people and the value system of advertising.

TOP HORROR MOVIES

WHY DO WE LOVE HORROR MOVIES ? 

There are many Horror movies and series today, it is quite unbelievable. Do not be naïve, Serial killers, Vampires and Zombies are definitely on the rise and will get the control of the earth in every seconde on TV. You know Dexter, True Blood, Vampire Diaries and Walking Dead, don’t you ?

The other night, after having posted the TOP 20 Best Horror movies, I realized it was longer than expected to choose between all of them. Indeed, even separation between thriller and horror was hard sometimes.

On one hand, the unique undeniable selection criteria was « torture » added to a real volume of « blood ». These are pure basic horror elements, as soon as murder and mental torture are not enough anymore. But, I could not resign myself to be so objective.

I understood that I was more likely to select the movies I had discovered when I was a young teenager. It creates more emotions and forges stronger souvenirs. It certainly explains why the Stanley Kubrick’s movies A Clockwork Orange (1971) and The Shining (1980), as well as Misery (1990) directed by Rob Reiner have particularly marked my memory.

Consequently, protecting children is crucial, (do not forget to parameter your parental control), it could save you some issue and many psychiatrist’s’  invoices in the future.

On the other hand, schizophrenia appears to be my favorite mean in a movie. Schizophrenia is defined as a serious mental illness in which someone’s thoughts and feelings are not based on what is really happening around them. Most of the time, the sick person presents some dissociative disorders including several personalities, allowing directors to use a lots of illusions. I like schizophrenia in movies because the spectator can be respected and dramatically misled at the same time, with no poor trick at the end explaining why you have not seen it coming this way. I would like to elaborate and recommend a few movies here, but I would ruin you the thrill which I cannot accept.

In addition, I realized schizophrenia was not so original, as Vampires and Zombies are also some kinds of schizophrenic beings, just a bit more obvious in their wishes.

Paranoïa is also a very interesting tool, and some movies have made a great deal of it, such like Three Days of the Condor (1975) starring Robert Redford and directed by Sydney Pollack, Blade Runner (1982) starring Harrison Ford and directed by Ridley Scott, The Game (1997) starring Michael Douglas and Sean Penn directed by David Fincher, Pi (1998) directed by Darren Aronofsky or more recently BUG (2006) starring Ashely Judd and Michael Shannon directed by William Friedkin for example which are very stressful and quite terrifying for some of them.

Why we love been scared it is because we need to feel real, that means to have a lots of emotions and feelings so we get that life is true.

Finally, I realize that what we love the most in Horror Movies is to study the worst in human nature. That is probably why cannibalism is so fascinating in some ways !
