“The X-Files” season 11 trailer!

Hello there, my friends! More trailer talk coming your way! So let’s just jump into it!

So thanks to New York Comic Con we have gotten a trailer for season 11 of “The X-Files”. Now, for those unaware (fucking cave dwellers), “The X-Files” is a show created by Chris Carter and was first aired in 1993. It’s about two FBI agents named Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) who investigate a series of weird cases (AKA the titular “X-Files”). It ended in 2002, had two movies released in 1998 and 2008, and was revived for a tenth season which aired in early 2016. Then earlier this year it was announced that the show would come back for an eleventh season. While the tenth season wasn’t one of the show’s strongest, I was still excited about the season 11 announcement. Because one, season 10 ended on a bit of cliffhanger. And two, I will never say no to more “X-Files”. So now we have our season 11 trailer. And how does it look? It looks fine. More conspiracy stuff, the smoking man up to shady shit as always, some creature shit going on. Basically it’s more “X-Files”, but with a seemingly bigger focus on an overarching plot (though I could be slightly wrong about that last part). Am I excited? Like I said, I will never say no to more “X-Files”. The eleventh season of “The X-Files” will air in 2018.

What are your thoughts? Are you excited for season 11 of “The X-Files”? And what are your thoughts on season 10 (I’ve seen a lot of mixed thoughts)? Leave any and all thoughts in the comments.
Have a good one and enjoy the trailer!

My Top 20 Favorite Songs

music-notes-1366x768

How’s it going, guys? I hope you are having a good time doing whatever you are currently doing. I am here to give you another list/countdown/opinion-pile. And this time it is for my personal Top 20 Favorite Songs. You’re probably thinking “Wow, “Top 20 Favorite Songs”, something special must’ve happened!”. And the nswer to that is “No”, nothing special has happened, I just couldn’t figure out anything else to use for today’s list… yeah. So, let’s stop standing here and let’s get the rules.

Rule #1: As I always put as rule number 1 on my lists… this is my list therefore you can’t bitch about anything if you don’t agree with it. Every spot on this list is purely based on my opinion and I don’t mean to say that I give you an objective truth. So no bitching!

Rule #2: This list will probably alter a fair amount over the coming weeks/months, so this is just how I feel at this time. Also, every spot on this list (except for the Top 2) are put kind of willy-nilly.

Rule #3: I’m gonna put some emphasis on the fact that the picks for this list aren’t the objectively best songs in the world, these are just the songs I love listening to the most…ish.

Rule #4: I have kept it to one song per artist/band, because otherwise this list would be about 95% AC/DC songs.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you… My Top 20 Favorite Songs!

Number 20: I am Kloot – Avenue of Hope.

A calm and relaxing song that I actually discovered fairly recently. I head it for the first time when I watched the 2007 sci-fi movie “Sunshine” (Sidenote: Go watch “Sunshine” is you haven’t, it’s fucking great). The lyrics are mysterious yet soothing, the guitar is slow and methodical and that freaking saxophone is just magical. It all culminates into a great song.

Number 19: Andy Williams – Speak Softly, Love.

Next up we have a beautiful love song from a fantastic movie. It is what is usually considered the main theme of Francis Ford Coppola’s mafia masterpiece “The Godfather”. I know, there is a bit of a running theme here with songs first being heard in movies, but that’s just purely coincidental. Anyway, this is a beautiful song with powerful instrumentals and terrific singing from the magic voice of Andy Williams. It is overall fantastic and I think you should listen to it.

Number 18: The Jeff Healey Band – Confidence Man.

Next up on the list is a cool song from the blind blues-rocker Jeff Healey (R.I.P). From Healey’s blues voice to the terrific guitar to the overall cool vibe, this is a pretty great song. Listen to it. Also, when making this list and putting this song in it I remembered that Healey was in “Road House”… strange how life works.

Number 17: Johnny Cash – Hurt.

Of course you need a song by “The Man in Black” in your list, question is though which one you will use. Should you go with the ever so popular “Ring of Fire” or maybe go to jil with the “Folsom Prison Blues”? Well in my case we go with his incredibly powerful cover of Nine Inch Nails’ 1994 song. Fun fact: When Reznor saw the music video for this song, it made him cry, and I don’t blame him… it made me tear up a little bit. Every time I watch it I feel like I just lost a friend. That is how powerful this song (and video) is.

Number 16: Beastie Boys – No Sleep Till Brooklyn.

Going from extremely depressing to extremely fun we have the mid-80’s hit by the white hip-hop trio that actually succeeded at being a white hip-hop trio. Also, I think I know why they have such a guitar/rock-based soung despite the lyrical parts being hip-hop; It turns out they started out as punk band but that didn’t really work so they changed to hip-hop and that worked for them. Anyway, one thing’s for sure: It all worked out for them and they have a unique sound that I fucking love. Also, R.I.P. Adam Yauch (In other words MCA), you are missed.

Number 15: Frank Turner – Peggy Sang the Blues.

Here we have a song from musician Frank Turner who has gotten a little bit of recognition these past few years, especially for his song “I Still Believe” which I also love. But for this list I using his song “Peggy Sang the Blues” which jsut like “I Still Believe” is featured on Turner’s album “England Keep My Bones”. I think this song really says what most people want to believe in through the phrase “It doesn’t matter where you come from, it matters where you go“. I intrepret it as that you background doesn’t matter, but please do something about your life, don’t all mundane, do something with your life! I don’t know, I might be really wrong on that, but until someone comes with a better argument I am keeping by it! But this song hold up thanks to excellent lyrics, great instruments (particularly the guitar) and Frank Turner’s fantastic voice.

Number 14: Toto – Africa.

Here we have the classic synth-rock song “Africa” from synth-rock band Toto. Fun fact: keyboardist Steve Porcaro has been keeping busy these past few years, providing the soundtrack for the TV-show “Justified” (Sidenote: Go watch it). But this spot isn’t really about “Justified”, but much rather about this amazing song from Toto. It just has a classic and overall great feel that I just love. The lyrics are pretty great too, being kind of powerful in the chorus. Go listen to it, it’s great.

Number 13: Green Day – Good Riddance (Time of your Life).

Next up is a great song by punk/pop/rock band Green Day. I was originally gonna go with “Warning” for this spot, but then I thought “Nope, Good Riddance is a much better song, let’s use that!”. And I used it. It may be short, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t leave an impact… because to me this song had a huge impact. A song that can interpreted as “Life can and will suck at times, so have as much fun as possible when you can”. Not in a “fuck the police” kind of way, but rather in a “Go out right now and have fun because you might not get a second chance!”. And that is one of the many reasons that it works.

Number 12: Muse – Knights of Cydonia.

As you probably know by now after I have talked about it about 659,4 times, I am a huge fan of westerns. And this song kind of reminds me of westerns, or at least cowboys. In the style of it and also because there are some horses neighing in the beginning of the song. But this song boasts a feel and a surprisingly badass style that I fucking love. I first discovered it when playing “Guitar Hero 3: Legends of Rock”. And to this day I still can’t beat it on hard difficulty… *sigh*. Song’s great though.

Number 11: Metallica – One.

This might have been one of the more difficult choices for this list seeing as I love Metallica as much as I do. I love most of their songs, not that many on the album “Death Magnetic”, but that’s an entirely different story. But choosing which Metallica song to use was a big challenge, but finally I settled on “One” the song about a soldier… I think. If you look at parts of the lyrics it suggests that and if you look at the video it used clips from the movie “Johnny Got His Gun” which I haven’t seen but want to. Anyway, this is a great song with some excellent guitar, fantastic drumming and the always awesome voice of James Hetfield.

Number 10: The Green Car Motel – Asi Sera.

Time to bring out the motherfucking hipster music. And by that I mean, I don’t think the majority of the world has even heard of this song or even of this band. Which is a sad fact because not only is this song itself great, but the band has made some overall really good tracks that you should listen to some day. A beautiful ballad in spanish filled with excellent/beautiful guitar playing, a great rhythm and by god, that freaking trumpet is fantastic. Oh yeah, the singer’s great too. The entire song is great, listen to it.

Number 9: Steppenwolf – Born to Be Wild.

Get your motor running, head out on the highway! Lookin’ for adventure, in whatever comes our way! Those first few words really what describe what “Born to Be Wild” is all about… freedom. Freedom on the highway. BORN TO BE WIIIIIILD!!!

Number 8: Clint Mansell – Memories (Someone We’ll Never Know).

I never said songs from a movie’s original score was banned from this list! Any song is eligible for this list as long as I write which version of the song I’ve chosen for the list and also that I never use the same artist/band twice. With that said, this is to me (and anyone else who loves this amazing movies) a very emotional song. Hell, I think it might be emotional for anyone who hears it since it is in general a beautiful piece of music. The slow and beautiful piano, the magnificent strings (especially the cello, that shit’s pure magic) and the overall feeling of loneliness and abandonment makes this one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard.

Number 7: Ted Gärdestad – Himlen Är Oskyldigt Blå.

Hey look, a song from my home country! On a quick sidenote: For those of you who don’t know, I am from Sweden. Now that I got the sidenote out of the way, I love this song so much! Not only is this one of my favorite songs of all time, Ted Gärdestad(R.I.P) is also one of my favorite musicians of all time. This song got everything; Beautiful piano, great intrumental play in general, a great feel and also a fantastic voice to hold it up. There is nothing I dislike about this movie, I love absolutely everything about it!

Number 6: Deep Purple – Smoke on the Water.

Despite this song only being at number 6, it has still had a larger impact on me than any other song on this list. It was the first song I ever played and beat on “Guitar Hero”, it is a song that stuck easily in my mind and it is one of the few songs I actually know the full lyrics to (I recite the lyrics in my spare time a lot). Anyway, I think the main reason everybody knows this song and can recognize it easily is because of that classic guitar riff. A simple layout with a simple execution turned into a worldwide phenomenon. My love of this song go beyond the riff however, I personally love everything about the song. Like I said, the impact it had on me me is massive. I know the lyrics, I know the backstory behind it, I have listened to this song probably more than 500 times throughout my life (which might sound like a little to some, but is actually a huge amount) and I just overall love exactly everything about it.

Number 5: Brad Paisley – You’ll Never Leave Harlan Alive.

Hey look, a country song! And a pretty amazing one at that. It is a song with excellent guitar playing, excellent use of all intruments and it also has Brad Paisley’s smooth voice. It also tells a story of Harlan County’s coal industry and how it began. Those are things that make the song as great as it is (to me). Here is how I discovered the song: I was watching “Justified” (Sidenote: Again, go watch it!) and when I got to the season 1 finale this song started playing and I went “Wow, this song’s great, I have to look it up!”. So I looked it up, found out which song it was and I have listened to it and loved it ever since. It is a great song that deserves all the love it gets!

Number 4: Bruce Springsteen – Streets of Philadelphia.

Once again, a song that I got introduced to through a movie (Sidenote: The movie for those of you who don’t know is “Philadelphia”). And boy, am I glad the movie introduced me to this song because it is just beautiful! The drumming is soothing, Springsteen’s voice is soothing and the lyrics some of the most poetic and beautiful I have ever heard. This is one of the few songs that can make me close to tearing up because of beautiful it is. This is a song that I hope will touch so many more people. Even though it is pretty much about gay people who get aids and start dying (go to songmeanings.com and you will understand).

Number 3: Skillet – American Noise.

This is a song that just hit me as soon as I heard it. It comments on society, it has powerful lyrics that resonated with me it is jsut straight up beautiful. Whenever I hear this magnificent song I just want to yell out “I GOT A VOICE!” and then jsut burst into song to make the world a happier place. I remember chatting with my best friend on facebook one day, sending a link to this song to him and he just fell in love with it. I guess that is exactly what this song is… Love. Anyway, even if it for some reason turned out to not actually be love but instead be something else I can for sure say that it is an amazing song.

Number 2: AC/DC – Hells Bells.

This spot might come as a shock for some people since I have stated many times, both here on wordpress and in real life that AC/DC is my favorite band. And holy shit, it was so shocking I gave Jeff a heart attack. Someone call 911. Anyway, uhm… yeah. You’d think that if AC/DC is my favorite band then I’d put one of their songs at number 1, but I am kind of ironic in that sense because I put them at number 2. But despite it not being on number 1, I still fucking love this song (and AC/DC). This is honestly my favorite AC/DC song, I don’t know why it is my favorite by them, it just is. It is pretty amazing in my opinion.

Before we reach number 1, let’s just throw out one honorable mention because I am a dick like that! And that honorable mention will go to “Paradise City” by Guns ‘n’ Roses. Great rock song, fun to listen to, honorable mention over.

NUMBER 1: Ennio Morricone – The Ecstasy of Gold!

THIS. SONG. IS. FUCKING. AMAZING. CAN’T. SPEAK. PROPERLY. But in all seriousness, this song really is a masterpiece. Written and conducted by Ennio Morricone for “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly” (Sidenote: MY third favorite movie of all time), it is an epic song that gives me goosebumps every time I hear it. The intro piano/oboe, the gradually increasing sounds, the woman who sings in it, the brass the… EVERYTHING! This is a song I can just put on repeat at any time and just have a great time with because it is big, epic and brings me so many memories of big and epic westerns. And that is why this is my all time favorite song.

Now that has been my Top 20 Favorite Songs. Let me know in the comments what your favorite song is. I hope you an enjoyable time reading this and listening to the great music.

Have a good one!

My Top 15 Musical Tracks from Video games

Wut wut

Hey there, my friends! I am back with another “Top Whatever” list. This time I am stepping away from movies a little. Not forever, just for this little list. Not only do I watch movies and TV, but I also play video games. And when you play video games you might sometimes encounter some great musical tracks every now and then. And that is what we are taking a look at today. Now before we officially begin we have to set up some rules.

Rule 1: Like I mentioned in my previous list, this is my list based on my opinion, so no bitching. If there is a musical track you want to share with me, please do so, I would like to see what you think.

Rule 2: Only one musical track per video game franchise. I know that might sound awfully picky, but that is how we are doing it.

Rule 3: Only tracks that were made for that game. We are not using licensed tracks in this list. Even though some video games integrated licensed tracks perfectly, those tracks are not good for this list.

Now that all of that is out of the way, let’s go!

Number 15: Murder in the Station – The Darkness 2 (2012)

A track from the excellent first person shooter game “The Darkness 2”. This track accompanies a part of the game where you as Jackie Estacado (voiced by the awesome Brian Bloom) go through a train station, killing a bunch of thugs who were sent after you to well… kill you. While this track might be generic to some people, I still think it is great.

Number 14: Overture – Red Faction: Armageddon (2011)

This track acts as sort of the main theme song of the game. If you didn’t know, “Red Faction: Armageddon” is a sort of sequel to the epic 2009 game “Red Faction: Guerrilla”. This track is dark, cold and builds up to a great conclusion. I have listened to it a ton of times and I think it is great.

Number 13: Suicide Mission – Mass Effect 2 (2010)

Now we throw in an epic orchestral piece into the mix from a great game. “Mass Effect 2” is the sequel to the critically acclaimed sci-fi RPG by Canadian developer Bioware. In this game you are putting together a team of different species and personalities to take on “The Collectors” who kidnap human colonies. And this song (mild spoiler) is played during a part of the final mission, hence the name “Suicide Mission”. This track is big, it’s epic and it got some great build up! Such a great track! Then why is it so low as 13? I just prefer the following musical tracks more than this one.

Number 12: Save theme – Resident Evil 4 (2005)

My god, I love this game so much! I am generally not a guy who loves horror games/movies/shows so much, but hot damn is this awesome! It feels like a mix of B-movie horror with B-movie action but is produced like an A-movie. I know that doesn’t make sense, but that is just how it is. This track is the song you hear when you go to a typewriter and save the game. It is a song that both makes you feel safe but also feel like there is something scary around the next corner. The track is soothing, the track is creepy, the track is great.

Number 11: Battle Theme – Final Fantasy X (2001)

Going back to the realm of RPG’s with this track from the excellent “Final Fantasy X”. I love this game. It got a great (if somewhat cheesy) story, great characters, good gameplay and of course… great music. Once again Nobuo Uematsu composed the music for a “Final Fantasy” game and once again he delivered. This track is the one you hear pretty much everytime you go into battle with regular enemies (bosses have different tunes). This track gets you pumped for the battle and makes you feel like you can take on everything! And if I ever decide to start working out in one way or another then this song will proably be part of the playlist. If it goes on for too long it might get a little repetitive, but overall it is great.

Number 10: Main theme song – Donkey Kong Country (1994)

This song is so awesome! If any person who loves video games hears this song, they automatically know where it’s from and what to do… go get bananas and start jumping on crocodiles! Wait, no… that’s a bad idea. But you get my point. This song is as the title describes it; the main theme song for “Donkey Kong Country” which came out for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). I have listened to this song so many times and every time I hear it I want to go on a big adventure, the song gives off that feeling in my opinion. I also love the game, it is awesome.

Number 9: Dr. Wily’s Castle – Megaman 2 (1988)

The “Megaman” franchise is known for being difficult. “Megaman 2” is no exception. But when you hear this awesome song during the final level of the game you don’t care, you just feel invincible and you also feel like nothing can stop you except for spikes and pitfalls. My point is, this track is badass. It also sounds like it is a rock n roll track but can’t get that sound per se because of the limitations of the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System). But those limiations don’t matter when the song is awesome in 8-bit! This song is so good at getting me pumped and I absolutely love that!

Number 8: Mystic Cave Zone – Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (1992)

Staying in the realm of old games for a little more we have this fucking awesome song from the game “Sonic the Hedgehog 2”. While I haven’t played the game on an old cartridge, I have played it on the PS2 thing “Sonic Mega Collection Plus” which featured a whole bunch of old Sonic games. And when I decided to play “Sonic 2” one day I got to the stage “Mystic Cave Zone” after much struggle and was greeted with this awesome song. My biggest problem was that I didn’t want to continue because that would end the song, and that would be sad because it is so bouncy and uplifting and just amazing! It is one of those songs you expect to hear in an old platformer and when you do get it you fall in love with it. I know I did at least. Because this song is awesome.

Number 7: Taste the Blood – Devil May Cry 3 (2005)

Whoo boy… this game is difficult. When you feel like you want to give up during the combat of this game you don’t. You know why? Because this badass song keeps you pumped and makes sure you don’t give up! A line in the song even says “To take me out you must FIGHT LIKE A MAN” which basically taunts you into fighting like a badass. This track is what kept me going when I got frustrated in the game. Then halfway through they switched to a different song, not a bad one, but it isn’t “Taste the Blood”. “Taste the Blood” is awesome.

Number 6: Main theme song – Max Payne 3 (2012)

I could just as easily have gone with any of the “Max Payne” theme songs (because they are all the same song). But I went specifically with this version because it is the one I think is the best and most depressing one. This version really makes you feel how far Max has decayed as a person with his booze and pills. You really feel how heavy life is for Max when you listen to this song and you just want to reach in there and save the guy. But then you remember that if you do you will not be able to do the cool “bullet time” moves Max does in the game. But this track is a way to show that video games aren’t all happy and bouncy and for kids. Want to prove someone wrong about that stuff? Play this track. It is possibly the heaviest track I have ever heard. And that is why I love it!

Number 5: Main theme song – Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (2001)

Getting down to the big boys here! Here comes the main theme tune from the video game sequel that did everything better than the first game. This game improves on so much. But that is not why we are here, we are here for the music! To be honest I almost went with the track “Yell Dead Cell” from the game but then decided “Fuck it, main theme it is!” because it is frankly amazing. Composed by acclaimed composer Harry Gregson-Williams this song really embraces the whole badass spy espionage action thing. When you hear this you basically just want to go out, sneak in somewhere and do some cool spy stuff. But then you remember that is illegal and you go back playing some “Metal Gear Solid 2”. This song is awesome and the game is too.

Number 4: Ransacked – Wolfenstein: The New Order (2014)

Woaw, a game from last year! And it is a shooter with super nazis and a badass soundtrack… sing me up! This track from this badass game is a great way to get me like “Ho-ly shit, this is awesome!”. The soundtrack was already really good with a lot of the metal they used in the soundtrack, but then they add this little guitar tune at one of the most epic parts of the game. When I got to that part I thought “Oh crap, what’s gonna happen now” but then lost that trail of thought when I heard the guitar from this song come one and then switch to the Rock n Roll bit of it. And the Rock n Roll parts of this songs are probably my favorite parts of the song and makes me feel all badass on the inside and makes the situation in the game so much more dire and haunting. This track is awesome!

Number 3: Ezio’s Family – Assassin’s Creed 2 (2009)

I could just as easily put the entire “Assassin’s Creed 2” soundtrack here because of how great it is. But I chose to go with the song that I guess could count as the main theme song of the game. Danish composer Jesper Kyd did an excellent job composing the soundtrack for this game and I absolutely adored it! It fits the 15th century setting perfectly and it fits the amazing story just as well. I don’t know what to say more really. One thing I do like about it is how he used a good mix of guitar and other stringed intruments in this track. It worked out perfectly and that is kind of why he is one of my favorite composers.

Number 2: Born unto Trouble – Red Dead Redemption (2010)

You guys knew I wouldn’t make this list without at least talking about westerns once. This song perfectly captures the western feel so well! Perfect also how it comes from a western game that turned out to be one of my favorite games of all time. With a fantastic story, interesting characters and a soundtrack to rival Ennio Morricone (THERE, I said it!). The reason I chose this song is because of how it both captures the western feel so well and give you a sense of relaxation. It also gives a sense of realism and darkness, kind of like the movie “Unforgiven”. Bill Elm & Woody Jackson did a great job with this song and the soundtrack in general. I love them.

Number 1: Dearly Beloved – Kingdom Hearts 2 (2005)

Like with “Max Payne”, this song is featured in every installment of this franchise but I choose this version because… just listen to it! It’s fucking beautiful! The piano, the subtle strings, the subtle woodwind intruments… I love it so much! It is also perfect how this franchise happens to be my favorite video game franchise of all time. I adore it so much and the music is one of the reason why. And that is why I chose this track above all others! It is simply beautiful.

Now the list is over! Thanks for reading, hope you had a good time and I’ll see you next time! Oh wait, what are some of your favorite video game musical tracks? Leave a comment! I would like to hear from you!

See ya!

Movie Review: Fight Club (1999)

Image

You know how many mainstream movies get so much love from a ton of people who will then try to decapitate you if you say anything bad about it? It happened to me once when I gave a little negative comment on “The Avengers”. Some if not most of these movies are usually hit-ot-miss. Either you love it, or you hate it. This movie has been on my watchlist for quite some time now and I finally decided to sit down and watch it. This is one of the most popular movies of all time.

Men and women…”Fight Club”!

The movie follows an insomniac office worker simply credited as “The Narrator” (Edward Norton). He is not very happy with his life. Why? He can’t fucking sleep, that’s why. He thinks it is because he does the same stuff all the time. So he joins a support group for testicular cancer (even though he have not conducted that disease). In there he meets his new friend Robert “Bob” Paulsen (Meat Loaf). Bob got his testicles removed because of the disease and have become more feminine. He became so feminine in fact that he *sigh*…grew boobs. But the Narrator likes this support group thing since it helps him cry which apparently helps him to get sleep. So he starts attedning even more of them. Everything goes fine and dandy…until the chain smoking woman Marla Singer (Helena Bonham Carter) starts attending them and it just fucks everything over for the Narrator. He confronts her and they make a deal about who will attend which support groups. Oh and on every group, the Narrator chooses a different name, like Cornelius…yeah. But a while later on a plane, he meets this strange man Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt). And he IS weird, I mean…he talks about how to make napalm with regular household products. But when the Narrator after the flight finds out his apartment was blown up…he calls for Marla, but she does not want him in her place. Then he tries calling Durden, and gets no answer. Then suddenly, the payphone rings…and he answers it. And guess who it is, it’s motherfucking Tyler Durden. These two guys talk and decide to go out for a beer. Then the Narrator asks if he could stay with Durden. And he can, on one condition: He have to hit Durden as hard as he can. Of course he questions why he has to do that, yet he does it…on Durden’s fucking ear. Then he hits him back…and they start fighting. After the fight they decide to start doing this little fight thingy again. Then we come to Durden’s house. A rotten-ass house it sure as hell is. Things seem like they can break at any second and it is just the worst fucking place ever. Believe me, you would not like to live in that place. It’s a good ol’ shithole. Remember earlier when I said the “do the fight thingy again”? Yeah they do that and get quite the audience…which later turns into a big sort of underground Fight Club. Now, all this does not sound like simple plot, ’cause it ain’t. This movie and its plot is just to me…perfect. Throughout the movie, it gets more complex and I fucking love that. The more complex a plot is, the more I will probably enjoy it…I love complex thinky stuff. Also, this movie is very brutal…just sayin’. So if you’re squeamish…yeah.

The characters of “Fight Club” are odd, flawed and complex. And in my book that is something good. They are very varied in style. For example, the Narrator is…well he is like every Edward Norton character ever…intelligent but very troubled and even a little fucked in the head. Tyler Durden is a mystery with a leather jacket and a pack of cigarettes, he is complex and just so damn entertaining. Then we have Marla…who is a nutjob who chainsmokes. But she is like everyone else in this movie…complex as all hell. Even though she is not nearly as complex as let’s say the Narrator or Tyler Durden. But still complex in her own way. I mean, she has to be complex…she is Helena Bonham Carter…she has more layers than a three foot cake.

The music is just fucking fantastic. At a lot of points it is dark and chilling, like a lot of parts of this movie. But at some points it can be quite light hearted, for the more light hearted parts that is. But in general, I love the soundtrack for “Fight Club” since it fits so well for this strange/weird movie.

Remember when I said this was brutal? Well, it is. Too brutal for a whole lot of people I would assume…but I don’t fucking care, the fight scenes may be brutal, but they are still very well choreographed and shot. Speaking of how scenes are shot, this movie is very well directed and incredibly well shot! This movie is one of the most good looking ones I have ever seen. Also, the action scenes doesn’t use unnecessary shaky cam…and I love that, you can actually see what’s going on.
