The things that I didnt really like about Zodiac was that it drug on really long and the story reached a point where it stood still and the plot didnt go too much farther, if you know what I mean? But like I said I am a huge David Fincher fan, I love his films and the atmosphere he creates for them, he has his distinct style that cant be mimiced. He is a modern day Stanley Kunbrick in my opinion. I love all of his previous films, ever since he hit the scene hard with Alien 3 in 1992, that film had the best scenery and atmosphere out of all of the Alien films, but thats just my opinion. Then he later came with Seven, that film is set to be a classic, Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman are to very talented actors who work really well with one another, they are two of my favorite actors of all time. Plus Gwyneth Paltrow and Kevin Spacey made excellent additions to this film, and you cant forget R. Lee Ermey's role in the movie too. After Seven he released The Game with Michael Douglas, it also had a nice cast, Sean Penn, Deborah Kara Unger, James Rebhorn and many more, overall that movie was very good and sits in my collection very nicely. When he came out with Fight Club, it was a major hit amoung people all over the nation! Fight Club had an amazing cast, Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, Helen Bonham Carter, Meat Loaf and many more talented actors that lit up the screen, it was a great sucess that is still talked about to this day. I really liked Panic Room which was his next release, that movie was awesome and it had an excellent cast as well, Jodi Foster, Forest Whitaker, Kristen Stewart, Dwight Yokam, Jared Leto and many more! Fincher's last release was Zodiac but his next one is set to come out this December, it is called The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, it is about a man who ages backwards, and he is played by Brad Pitt, the movie also stars Tilda Swinton, Cate Blanchett, Elle Fanning and many more. I am very excited for this films release and have been since about a year ago when I first learned about it. His future release is set for 2009 and it is titled Rendezvous with Rama, it stars Morgan Freeman and is about a team of astronauts that are sent on a missoin to explore a giant spaceship heading towards the sun. The film is based on a novel by Arthur C. Clarke who wrote the Story for 2001: A Space Odyssey, (like I said Fincher is our modern day Stanley Kunbrick).
Well write me your thoughts and comments on this piece and David Fincher!!!
