No. My problems with the source material overwhelmed any flair Fincher brought to the proceedings. Some sequences I found gripping but they were familiar to me from previous Fincher films. Craig was good, minus the not-even-trying Swedish accent. The murder mystery was a bore—and dead obvious. As with most things, not enough Christopher Plummer.
When you see a film, do you order popcorn or sneak stuff in?.
I don’t usually like to eat during a film. I never order popcorn. Sometimes I’ll drink coffee, especially if I’m doing a marathon day. If I’m at a festival, all bets are off—I’m bringing in all the snacks. Grapes and string cheese are tasty and quiet options. Snap peas are also good, although considerably less quiet.
“As far as I can see, the Occupy movement is just ordinary people reclaiming rights which should always have been theirs. I can’t think of any reason why as a population we should be expected to stand by and see a gross reduction in the living standards of ourselves and our kids, possibly for generations, when the people who have got us into this have been rewarded for it.
It’s a completely justified howl of moral outrage and it seems to be handled in a very intelligent, non-violent way, which is probably another reason why Frank Miller would be less than pleased with it/ I’m sure if it had been a bunch of young, sociopathic vigilantes with Batman make-up on their faces, he’d be more in favor of it. We would definitely have to agree to differ on that one.”—
