GONE GIRL Special Edition: About The Cast

GONE GIRL Special Edition: About The Cast

This post contains spoilers.

GONE GIRL has been in the year’s must-watch list of every movie blogger I know. There are many factors behind that fact, but the foremost would be the director. David Fincher, of course. One of the best living director, Fincher stands solidly in his ‘playground’—this mystery-thriller genre—so it’s no doubt that people are gonna see what else Fincher is gonna do in this brand new mystery movie. The ‘Fincher effect’, I might call it.

GONE GIRL Special Edition: Comparing to Director's Earlier Works and Some Notes

GONE GIRL Special Edition: Comparing to Director's Earlier Works and Some Notes

“Gone Girl” (by giving quote marks I refer to the book) is a unique presentation of a writing, although in my record the author, Gillian Flynn—I haven’t even heard of her before (or her earlier works, either)—wasn’t granted too many awards for this beautiful work. The least, I guess, is Goodreads’ Choice Awards in 2012. I’m not some avid book readers, but from the least that I know, her “Gone Girl” is very distinctive. Generally speaking, it’s unusual.

Me On The Movie Presents: GONE GIRL Special Edition!

Me On The Movie Presents: GONE GIRL Special Edition!

Guess what? I’VE JUST FINISHED READING “GONE GIRL”

(Well I know it sounds too much but FYI I’m a very slow reader and this is the first American English-written novel I finish entirely—some applause won’t hurt!) 

You know, I don’t usually read a novel. A fiction, to be exact. The last fictional novel I read is... umm... Dan Brown’s “The Lost Symbol”? Yeah, it’s back in my college years. So why suddenly reading “Gone Girl”? Most of my reason, I know you knew, is because it’s adapted to a movie directed by David Fincher. David Fincher. And you know how much I love Fincher and his works.

Sleepiness During Movies?

Sleepiness During Movies

Have you ever slept, or at least felt sleepy, while watching a movie?

That's my biggest problem recently. I don't know if I was just too tired for a movie or the movie was just boring; sleepiness during movies sometimes is unavoidable. Yeah I know it's silly but I'm gonna write about it anyway, and it's great if you join me discussing this topic!

THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL (2014): An Incredible, Eye-Candy Tale from the Brilliant Mind of Wes Anderson

The Grand Budapest Hotel

You know, I’m trying to figure out which snapshots of THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL I should include in this post because I just can’t decide which. Or should I just make a GIF (a slideshow, perhaps) from the entire movie? Truthfully, I have only see two Wes Anderson’s pics: MOONRISE KINGDOM and THE DARJEELING LIMITED—plus one short film: HOTEL CHEVALIER). They were mostly a hit-and-miss experience in spite of Wes Anderson’s mastery on art direction. Now, his brand new THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL, for me, is a 100-minute of eye-gasmic experience so mesmerizing you don’t have the need to think about its artificially quirky story at all.
