It's showing near me next week as part of a "film festival" (read: glorified film club).
I don't know if it's supposed to get a normal run or not.

Huh. So it is. In that case, fuck the kaffeeklatsch. I'll go and see it at my leisure.

I'm going to see Blades of Glory on Friday.

Many people of Dirty Harry wrote:It is widely accepted that this movie was loosely based on the events surrounding the Zodiac Killer who was actively killing people in San Francisco at the time.

I didnt know that, but it makes sence. There is actually a scene from Dirty Harry in the movie.
Zodiac however isnt loosely based on the events. Its the real deal. During the research for the film, Fincher found important clues that the police had overseen and ignored at the time.

Because it's not "the real deal" especially if Fincher is directing it. It's likely to be as "edgy-hollywood" as the rest of his crap.

Nil point.

Fight Club and Seven? What about Alien 3? Those are Carolines'. Fincher is a cunt. And even if they were mine how would that stop them being faux edgy hollywood shite exactly?

Dirty Harry shits over everything Fincher has ever done. Fuck Fincher in his MTV ass. He's down there with Aronofsky in the "shite mtv director category". I'm a fan.

Oh yeah, I forgot about Alien3. That one is pretty good too. Fincher rules! I also like Aronofsky.

Caroline has man taste in films. Is she a man?

Yesterday, "Thank you for smoking" was put on at home. It was fun to watch.

Fincher's output is homoerotic. It's cinema for women.
