Gone Girl Movie - spoilers


happy atheist

Recommended Posts

I thought it was a very faithful adaptation of the book. Of course they compressed some things and left a few things out, but I didn't notice any big changes.

 

It was well cast and beautifully shot. I don't usually like Ben Affleck, but he worked really well as Nick.

 

I had heard that they were changing the ending, but not so much. They just left out the "I feel sorry for you because you have to be you" thing.

I agree, I thought it was well done too. I do wish they would have shown the female that Amy had harassed in College. I think her name was Hilary, or something like that. And also give us a bit more backstory on the relationship with Desi. Otherwise it was a great adaptation. I have never seen the actresses who played Boney or Margo. They were both terrific. And, I think Tyler Perry is a much better actor than he is a director. His movies are terrible, but he was very good in Gone Girl. In fact, I would have liked more scenes with him as well.

Boney looked a bit familiar to me, but I can't place her. I might have to check out IMBD. Go was new for me, and did a great job. I agree that Tyler Perry was good. Very appealing.

I had forgotten about the girl in college. Amy's a real piece of work. I was a little disappointed that they soft-pedaled the idea that she was also getting revenge on her parents.

I want Desi's lake house. It wouldn't need to be that large, but the architecture was gorgeous.

I thought it was really good as an adaptation - streamlined what needed to be streamlined without losing the essence of the story. Of course, the plot is as creaky as an old barn, but David Fincher is the kind of filmmaker whose sheer technical prowess can overcome that. Was thrilled to see that he brought all his crew back from GWTDT, because that group is unstoppable. Also, Rosamund Pike was phenomenal, and Ben Affleck fit the role like a glove - he's got a lot of talent (though more behind the camera), but it was a perfect part for him to start with.

Apparently Boney's going to be on House of Cards next season, which I'm really looking forward to.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
