David Fincher on why he made the movies he did

Firstshowing.net recently interviewed David Fincher where he talked about why he made a couple of his movies. The ones he didn’t talk about, they filled in from past interviews resulting in a group of quotes about why Fincher made each of his movies. Pretty neat.

The Game 1997: ‘The Game was a movie that I liked the idea of this gigantic Twilight Zone episode that became The Stunt Man. That you could sit down and look at the bill and go, ‘Oh, really? So you had divers when I was in the cab. That’s nice to hear now. But at the time I really thought I was drowning.’ So you know, there’s different reasons for [choosing] everything.

19 Alternate Die Hard movie posters


In trying to clear out my tabs to reach the nirvana of Tab Bar Zero, I came to Daniel Norris’s reimagined Die Hard poster. I’d meant to post it months ago. He’s got a bunch of really good movie posters, but I love Die Hard.

This reminded me of Olly Moss’s Die Hard poster from a couple years ago. And then I got curious about whether there were any other Die Hard posters out there, and, oh man, let me tell you there are a couple, and these are all of them that I could find. Which one is your favorite? Did I miss any?

And then, these aren’t movie posters but still valid in this post, I think.

Punk rock dads

This is now the movie I most want to see. Opens in Boston at Kendall Theater on 11/11.

This revealing and touching film asks what happens when a generation’s ultimate anti-authoritarians — punk rockers — become society’s ultimate authorities — dads. With a large chorus of punk rock’s leading men – Blink-182′s Mark Hoppus, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea, Rise Against’s Tim McIlrath – THE OTHER F WORD follows Jim Lindberg, a 20-year veteran of the skate punk band Pennywise, on his hysterical and moving journey from belting his band’s anthem “F–k Authority,” to embracing his ultimately authoritarian role in mid-life: fatherhood.

Here’s the trailer:
