Default Fight Club

Anybody ever see it? Its easily my favorite movie of all time.

But the real question is, how many that have seen it have read the book? The book is 200 times better. The ending in the book was perfect. Chuck Palahniuk is my favorite author ever since Ive read the book.

So my reccomendation is out for the book and the movie.

My fav book is Lullaby by the same author. Feedback?

So this book, is it based on the movie or is the movie based on the book?

Ah, but here'* the real question...how many of you have played fight club (and I don't mean the video game?)
My friend and I did one night right after the movie came out. We were a little under the influence. We went to the parking lot outside (which happed to belong to a church). We did make a rule of no face shots though. We exchanged a few blows and then the other guy broke my nose. He was disqualified and I won.

Not that kind of sick....


Its the type of movie that makes you wanna go out and beat the crap out of everybody in a suit.

The movie is based on the book, but the director takes alot of liberties in telling the story, and might I add the director does a GREAT job, its just not the book.
