Underrated Fincher

"The game is tailored specifically to each participant. Think of it as a great vacation, except you don't go to it, it comes to you."

If Alfred Hitchcock was still alive and working in the 1990s, he would most certainly have directed 1997's The Game. Dense in atmosphere and thrills, it was only the third directorial effort of David Fincher, who had exhibited his 'A' game two years p... read more

So what do you get the man that has everything? How about this movie. The intelligent intrigue of The Game delivers a psychological thriller unlike any movie I have ever seen. Michael Douglas gives an oscar worthy performance battling the drama of a conspiracy created by on-screen brother, Sean Penn. Like Michael Douglas's character, the boundary between the game and real life became obscurred in ... read more

An underrated masterpiece

I’m such a huge fan of this movie and, in my opinion, it is easily the most underrated movie made by David Fincher. Indeed, he had directed this movie after ‘Seven’ and it wasn't so well received, at least, when you compare to how heralded was ‘Seven’ when it was released. It seems to be a trend in Fincher’s career that some really amazing gems such as ‘Zodiac’ or this movie are ba... read more

" Date: 2/5/2019 Viewed: Amazon Prime Rewatch Note: I haven't seen this movie since 2007 and I feel like this movie gets better with each viewing. I love how the whole movie plays out from start to finish. The movie has you on the edge of your seat on what will happen next. It's also fun to re-watch this movie and look for clues in the background in the movie. Highly recommended this movie if you haven't seen it yet."

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- June 2018 (37 movies items)

" Showtime- 2hrs. 8min. First Viewing Despite the fact that the movie gets parodically absurd in the final act, The Game is another, mostly, taut exercise in Fincherian controlled suspense. The plot is pretty bonkers, but Fincher masterfully keeps everything serious and opaque; nothing is what it seems, even if it seems obvious. Everything goes pretty great until the third act, where things take a bizarre turn to the outright absurd; while the first two acts set up a pretty crazy plot, the third "
