  2. This is at least two years old. Funny, though.

    I read about that last night. The new Esquire has a profile of David Fincher and he was playing the video for a reporter...Fincher talked about how he should have cut a trailer like that for "Fight Club"

    Somehow this one should have included the kid's scary refrain: "Red-rum, red-rum, red-rum." That always gets me, just as the shot of a frozen Nicholson at the end. I love it, maybe Jack's best role.

    I remember seeing the trailers and commercials for "Cocktail" and watching the videos including "Kokomo" and thinking it was this happy, feel-good movie.

    Then I watched it and couldn't believe how dark it was...

    Holy krap, that was funny! The Shining is one of my all-time favs, and I've seen it so many times it's almost like a comedy, like the trailer.

    The use of "Solsbury Hill" is genius.

    Fantastic. The only thing missing ...

    Fincher article was really good, I thought. Though he contradicts himself - in one breathe, his movies don't have any deep meaning, he's just an entertainer, etc., etc. In the next breathe, "People didn't like 'Fight Club' because they didn't get it!' "

    But I thought it was cool to read that he's really a normal guy that loves to make movies, not some deranged weirdo like his flicks would lead you to believe. Bit of a control freak and tough to work for, but a professional movie maker.
