My Latest DVD Column

Head on over to Huffington Post. I review "Zodiac," "Pillow Talk," "The Host" and more. And leave lots of comments!

Forgot about The Game?!? That's one of my all-time favorites. It's right there with Pulp Fiction, Shawshank and the 3 hour version of Four Feathers I saw in the winter of 2001.

Don't be snarky yourself, Michael. ZODIAC may stand with the best of Fincher, but there's no reason to talk down to your readers. And furthermore: SEVEN was better than you let on, and so was PANIC ROOM. Would you compare your best work so negatively to your second-best work? No? Right!o

Yo, I meant leave comments at Huffington! I'm not sure when I ws talking down to my readers, What are you referring to? Personally, I haven't been a fan of Fincher. I thought Se7en was great stylistically but found it empty as a story, with the finale doing nothing for me. Panic Room is just a one-time trifle to me. I also have problems with the heavy-handed moralizing of Fight Club, though both Norton and Pitt make it worthwhile and I've been planning to watch it again to see if it's improved over time or the Ikea-bashing remains banal. Given my disinterest in Fincher, that's why I was so heartily pleased by Zodiac.
