I don't plan on watching this, someone spoil the plot to the book for me. Terrible trailer.
Gone Girl (2014) - IMDb
David Fincher returns to the director's chair for this 20th Century Fox thriller based on Gillian Flynn's bestseller (and adapted for the screen by the author) about a husband who becomes the prime suspect in his wife's disappearance after she vanishes on their fifth wedding anniversary.

This movie is going to be bad, and David Fincher should feel bad.
Until recently, I had only slight knowledge of the story (wife goes missing, husband is implicated) but that sounds stupid as shit.
Dude made an awesome movie about making a website. Do not underestimate.
Also this movie hinges upon how well the director handles two unreliable narrators. Considering Fincher's most iconic movie is Fight Club, I think he will do just fine handling unreliable narrators.

I read the spoiler above. Do not want to see this.
The book was good. Of course it's a mystery so knowing what is going to happen would someone diminish it.
Spoiler tagged my post above. I'd say I'm sorry, but I'm not. Fuck the book and fuck this movie. I only hope that impressionable young girls don't see it and get any fucking stupid ideas from it.

It's David Fincher. This is a must-see for me. Se7en is probably one of my all-time favorite movies.
Edit: I just came across this on Facebook: Why David Fincher might be the best director in Hollywood today
Saw it, and if it was directed by anyone other then Fincher I would have hated it. It looked and felt like a Fincher movie and man can he get actors to act to their maximum. The woman liked it more then I did, but it was a solid 7 for me, she would have given it a 9.
this just in, bitches be crazy. jesus this movie is gonna set some skank off somewhere to go off the deep end
Saw it tonight. Bisi score: 8/10
Went with a few buddies to this. We all loved it.
Totally worth going to the movies for, great acting all around and one hell of a ride.
"It's better to look ugly and win, than pretty and lose."
There were some crazy tone shifts in the movie
All around amazing. Loved the sound usage for certain scenes, and the soundtrack overall definitely enhanced the experience.
I went ahead and read the plot synopsis for the book on Wikipedia. Kind of a messed up story.
Great movie. I had no idea what to expect coming in.
I hadn't read the book and knew nothing about the plot outside of the basic "Wife goes missing and husband is accused of murder" angle. I think David Fincher is a bit of a genius filmmaker, so I went to see this on his merit alone and was not disappointed. The acting was superb, the plot shifts caught me off guard and the atmosphere of the film was pitch perfect. After watching the film, I read that spoilered synopsis on the first page and it really just doesn't do any justice to what you'll actually experience -watching- the film.
9/10 for me.
So after reading all the reviews of how well Fincher did with the material, I'm almost tempted to go see this.
Anyone here read the book AND seen the movie? I hated the ending of the book. Will I hate the movie or is it worth going to see because of Fincher?
However if you're a fan of Fincher and his style, this has his fingerprint all over it. Worth the price of admission alone, for me. Elsewise, if I were you, I might wait for the disc.
Why is every review of this movie a SJW wankfest?
If the porn isn't high res you can't get horny, but you can hate a guy at 1000 paces without a scope. That's human nature.
because womynz have been trying SO HARD and bitching so much for movies to pass the Bechdel wtf ever test, and now one does, but oh noes WOMYNZ can only be victims.
Halfway through I was kind of hoping for...
Badass movie. Thoroughly enjoyed and so did the lady.
Incredible movie. 9 out of 10.

Although I enjoyed the movie there was plenty of plot holes that I caught on to with the biggest being:
My favorite part (don't worry no spoilers) was one some lady yelled as the credits started "What the hell kind of ending was that?!". How the hell did she want it to end? I thought the ending was absolutely perfect.
I went into this movie, fully spoiled, and not liking the general story outline. I mean, who would? It is an awful situation.
It seems like one disgusting cliche after the other, right? It seemed like it would be the same kind of fodder akin to Nancy Grace or Fox News blabber on about nightly for months on end. It seemed all too predictable, the premise being rotten and depressing. I have to say though, the movie is far smarter than it's surface-level story/premise. It is not about solving a mystery or about figuring how to navigate a troubled marriage. It is so much deeper than that. A lot of bad stuff happens in this movie, but there are no victims. Everyone pretty much gets what they deserve and that is the brilliance of it.
In Fincher I trust.
no NSFW outside of SS pls

"The female version of fight club" made me lol.
That's. probably. yeah. I can see it.
Pretty good. It's one of those movies you're not sure if you just got jerked around or if it was supposed to jerk you around on purpose.
I wouldn't have given it a chance if it didn't have Fincher and Reznor tied to it, but I talked some friends into it. We all left impressed. Solid 8/10 for me.
Not my favorite movie, but hard to find faults with it.
I made the mistake of suggesting this for a date movie. For someone I haven't been seeing for very long. FML. To be fair, she laughed and hasn't dumped me. Yet.
It went over the top a few times but was pretty entertaining for such a long film.
Date movie... HAHAHAHA, hahahaa, lol lol lol. GG sir.
Fincher is great as always, soundtrack is amazing, but the plot is completely ludicrous.
Just saw this movie (with the GF) with absolute no idea what it was about. Thought it was another chick flick and was griping to go see Dracula Untold instead.
Glad I decided to see this movie, and as someone else postedSpoiler:
Finally got the see this and thought it was very good. I knew a little about it going in and I thought the acting was superb. One note on the ending
The only wtf moment for me wasSpoiler:
I enjoyed the cast and the cinematography (notably the shots of the search party that reminded me of Egoyan's Exotica), but it is both extremely boring and totally unbelievable. My score: meh.
Little late to the party, but finally caught this the other day. Even knowing it had some 'fincher-esque' twists/quirks to it ahead of time, I still enjoyed it a lot and was surprised enough.
DVD Screeners of this (and a 720p web rip) just hit all the usual sites within the last hour or so
Wives get a sinister look on their faces when they watch this movie. It says "Oh yes, we are capable of this. You better not step outta line, chump".
Affleck's character is just such a doofus. I feel there must have been something lost from the book because he just doesn't make any sense.
Not much was changed from the book, unfortunately. Affleck's character was a chump, because Gillian Flynn's shtick is writing stories where nearly every character is completely insufferable (Dark Places is even worse in that regard). Fincher and Flynn said that the ending was going to be rewritten for the movie, but in the final cut it was barely any different at all.
This movie is basically the horror film equivalent of red pill propaganda. So many things. Beta orbiter used and discarded when no longer useful. Alpha male who loses his edge when he begins settling. Woman trapping man with baby. False rape claim. Women being able to love unconditionally. Holding frame against the reporter causes the woman to fall in love with her husband again, etc etc.
Finally, someone who truly got the movie. If it was anyone else i'd think it was a troll post.
I like the term 'beta orbiter' sounds like something you might hear in particle physics had it not already been 'alpha-cuckolded'(am i doing this right) by redpill philosophy.
Yeah, this wasn't the type of movie that Witherspoon, or someone like Sandra Bullock could have starred in, it wouldn't have been believable. This movie would have been right in Sharon Stone's wheelhouse if she were 20 years younger. It's probably one of the better Basic Instinct/Fatal Attraction-type relationship thrillers that I've seen in a while.
After the whole shin-dig went down. I think I would have just given her a hate-bang and then bailed forever. Staying with a lady who is that 10 kinds of crazy is very bad for your health.

Just watched the rip. The part that got me was when she dipped her top in the wine and crawled to the door to be seen in the camera. It was very animalistic and that's when she really made the chills come. Definite turn for Rosemund Pike.
