About this deal

Cutting off people at the ankles is generally a composition no-no, and it seems likely they correctly concluded that nobody was going to be paying attention to Marla’s shoes during this scene anyway. Once you get past the “Booms” and “Thuds” the remainder of the dialogue sounds very warm and uncompromising – essentially everything you’d expect from this movie. There's a lot of worthwhile content here, which provides background information on how the entire movie was put together. While contrast is high enough to get the most out the visuals without jeopardizing them, it still tends to be a bit too dark at times. With Tyler taking over the club and taking over Marla, our narrator finds himself in something he can’t control anymore.

Eventually, the two start Fight Club, which convenes in a bar basement where angry men get to vent their frustrations in brutal, bare-knuckle bouts. This is another fascinating commentary, with Chuck outlining the many characters/experiences from his real life that feature in this movie.

Though much credit is also due to the excellent sound and editing: so much in this film depends on hitting exactly the right tone. Vocals are crystal clear, never difficult to follow and add a pleasing bass tonality to Norton's voiceover. The much-publicized Easter Egg of this disc is a very comical but false opening menu for Never Been Kissed , which transitions into the real menu: a 360 degree view of the apartment menu from the original DVD, but now also featuring the Paper Street house kitchen, as well. Fincher is somewhat subdued but the other three more than make up for his “speak only when spoken to” attitude. Edward Norton stars as Jack, a bored insomniac who is determined to inject some excitement into his life.

We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars, but we won’t, and we’re slowly learning that fact, and we’re very, very pissed off. It’s very easy to browse them as well, and I recommend taking a look through them when you have time.

The approach and subject matter might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but anyone who is a film buff has to see this film. Clever, savagely witty and dark, Fight Club: 10th Anniversary Edition, arrives on Blu-ray on 23rd November from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. The interview with Ken (who was nominated for an Oscar for his work on this movie) explores his stellar attention to detail and ear for perfection during his time on the set of 'Fight Club'. This is how talent files should be done, and I hope other releases mirror this type of extensive cast and crew information in the future. It was a film released in the midst of a wave of energetic filmmaking, made by a media savvy crop of young filmmakers that looked like it would affect the way that movies were made (and viewed) for the new millennium.

Considering the lackluster FIGHT CLUB offerings in metal packaging in the UK this feels like a breathe of fresh air . The more docile character is played by Ed Norton, who shows more promise as an actor than anyone in recent memory. The mixing is top notch, with very active surround bleed and perfectly weighted bass; this is a score which really adds to the presentation.Fight Club soon becomes the mens only real priority; when the club starts a cross-country expansion, things start getting really crazy. Everyone brings their A-game, particularly Brad Pitt, and by the time the movie is over, you feel like you've become a member of the Fight Club, pummeled and bruised by the sheer force of the movie.

Suffering from insomnia he visits support groups for various afflictions to release whatever emotion he has pent up. They find their release from the prison of reality through underground fight clubs, where men can be what the world denies them. This is interesting, as we get to see some of the versatility of Super35, in particular the vertical and horizontal latitude for re-framing. Your going to love this I promise, leave a review too when you have seen it and prove me right or wrong for others. Subsequently Jeff did camera work on a number of Fincher’s other features including ‘ Se7en’ and ‘ The Game’.

It’s so grimy and primordial that many years after its release, the ripple effect of its power can still be felt within cinema itself.
