    Twist Good

    I had to give it four stars for the movie. It could have been five if not for the ending. I kind of get what the writer was going for. They didn't want that cookie cutter ending where everything is resolved. But this movie kind of needed it. The last 15 minutes, I kept saying, "I hope it's not a lame ending." I was disappointed. In real life I think it's safe to say this woman would never get away with this stuff. At the end they say the FBI will look at it. Well I don't think they did. The main cop pretty much caught her out in the hospital but then it's ignored. It's obvious that Ben Affleck's character didn't buy all that stuff. There are cameras all over NPH's house that show her walking around the house freely beforehand. The police station would have had caller ID showing the call that came in to complain about the woodshed would have came from far away. I hated how much of a wuss Ben Affleck was at the end. I would never be able to sleep again at night. And lastly, it's obvious that this woman is insane since she has cried wolf a lot in her life and her once solid evidence against her husband, doesn't add up anymore after she turns up alive.

    Another Winning Adaptation from David Fincher

    FEATURE: With gorgeous cinematography, on-point performances, tight editing, tack-sharp direction and a well-structured script from the source novel's writer, Gillian Anderson, Gone Girl is entertaining, disturbing and overall good. VIDEO: Contrast is well-balanced, detail is sharp but never unnaturally so, color is vivid (at least as much as the movie's bleak tone will allow) and no compression issues are to be found. AUDIO: This DTS-HD MA 7.1 track is perfect. Dialogue, while often delicate, is always tangible and discernible. Music sounds full and weighty, surround activity is frequent, but natural and unobtrusive, and fidelity is excellent. BONUS FEATURES: A good-but-not-great commentary is all we've got here, nothing so great as the selection on Fincher's previous release, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

    I haven't read the novel, so I don't know how different the film is from the book. Nonetheless, the film was enjoyable on it's own merit and contained the traditional suspense and downright creepiness to be expected from director David Fincher (Se7en, Fight Club, Zodiac, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, etc). The film is a critique of marriage and the media and touches on themes such as manipulation, infidelity and even murder. Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike are great in this and they get incredible support from Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry and Kim Dickens. I'm still on the fence about the ending, perhaps watching it a couple of more times will do the trick. However, the acting, setting, mood and twist in the middle of the film make it worth watching.

    Gripping The Entire Time

    For a movie that is two and a half hours, it sure didn't feel like it. Sometimes when movies get that long they start to drag on and on, with nothing interesting really happening most of the time. Not this one. Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike do a great job exploring their characters and making the audience not fully know who to support until about halfway through the movie. What I liked is how they portrayed the media and how the media can shape the public's perception. It may not be a ground breaking concept, but it is still an intriguing one. One of the few weak spots was the odd role Neil Patrick Harris played, which worked but was still odd. Definitely a good choice if you want a thriller or a mystery.

    Honestly, I was kinda excited for this movie, as people often told me this was one of the best movies they had ever seen, etc. And I'm a great fan of David Fincher, so that added to it. I believe that I went into this movie with the wrong expectations. I'm not saying that the movie was bad, it's actually really good. What I'm saying that is not David Fincher's best film. The conclusion surely took me by surprise and with a sensation of unease, which I definitely loved, as is classic in a Fincher movie. In summary is a great movie if you like drama overall, although you should check out other films by David Fincher.

    First and foremost, I enjoyed the movie. As the movie progresses lots of things unfold and certainly makes your perspectives of the characters evolve as well. I didn't read the book and had no idea what the movie was about other then a man's wife has gone missing. The plot twists had me saying to myself this is some crazy stuff! That said I gave this four stars out of five, because I felt there were some plot holes that were a bit rushed through as the movie progresses. I'm sure the book had a bit more detail. Overall though, definitely a movie worth seeing if you're about watching all the twists and turns unfold!

    A great thriller from David Fincher

    David Fincher does not disappoint his fans... this is a smart thriller about the fact that you may not know exactly what is going on the head of your spouse, as well as a scathing satire about how media can sensationalize a news story and turn it into a 24-hour circus. The actors are great, especially Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, who are perfectly cast in their roles. There is of course a twist in the story and the film changes tone about halfway in, but the joy of this film is how it changes from a pretty standard procedural into something fresh and new.

    More bravissimo Fincher

    You like Fincher? Good. Watch this. You like edgy, pull no punches filmmaking? Good. Watch this. You like seeing a master craftsman unleash camera and editing on the montage? Watch this immediately. It's not perfect from a plot standpoint (the climax is creaky if you think about it for more than 5 seconds, hence the loss of 1 star)...but from a technique standpoint, it's flawless. And more than once, Fincher will remind you why you love him....because more than once you will say, "Wow...he just did that."

    Excellent thriller that has you guessing from the start; playing detective and surprised when the blanks begin to fill in. Great performance from Rosamund Pike as the "missing" woman, and Ben Affleck has a solid performance also. I personally thought the ending could have been better written, but it still shines as an overall good movie. Definitely recommended viewing.

    Great Movie, Great Quality, Skimpy Bonus Content!

    The movie itself is great! Fincher knows how to present stories in new and interesting ways and he pulls that off again here. The bonus content is where this release falls flat. The commentary track was fun and interesting and the "Amazing Amy" complete children's book was a nice touch but Fincher's movies usually have in-depth behind-the-scenes content and for some reason this one does not. I'd recommend this movie to people as a rental and tell them to wait until it is re-released with more bonus content ala Panic Room and The Game.

    With the exception of "Alien 3", I have truly enjoyed all of the films directed by David Fincher. I was so fascinated by "Se7en", that I learned a lot about him as soon as I could. Whatever story he chooses to "bring to life" next has always given me a great source of joy in the theater (where I have seen ALL of his films first), and I have purchased each one when it was released on disc (just checked--yep, every one), so the decision to pick up "Gone Girl" was an easy one to make. His visual style never disappoints.

    My wife and I own an audio/video business here in LA and we currently own 4 of these tv's. If you're setting up a high end home theater system this isnt your tv but if your budget is under $400 you just found your new tv. The picture is FAR better than you would expect, it has plenty of inputs and this is a durable unit. We ship ours all over the country and they keep rocking. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend this unit for someone on a budget, a college dorm or even someone looking for a giant computer monitor.

    Another Sharp-Edged Thriller from Fincher

    Director David Fincher's follow-up to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is another adaptation of a best-selling thriller, this time Gillian Flynn's recent smash success. Ben Affleck has rarely been better as a seemingly "perfect" husband implicated when his wife disappears. Flynn and Fincher manage to capture the wildly different points of view expressed by Affleck's Nick and his wife Amy (Rosamund Pike). Like all Fincher movies the movie looks great, and he supplies a lively commentary track on the Blu-ray.

    Lots of surprises in this film. Keeps you assuming things, just to twist the story around and take you in another direction. The acting is very good. I'm never ceased to be amazed by Neil Patrick Harris. I swear that guy can do anything. And he makes it look so effortless. The only weakness in the film for me was the ending. I mean, it was ok, but it didn't pack a wallop like I would've expected. The blu-ray disc is excellent, as expected. Outstanding video and audio.

    Loved this film, truly. Couldn't ask for a better experience as a film. The direction, acting, and story just work so well together to bring to life such an incredibly taught book. That being said, the Blu-ray release of this film is rather puny, lacking many extras one might expect from such a successful and much-hyped film. I'm bracing myself for the studio to double-dip in the near future. In the meantime, at least I have a copy of the film to enjoy at my leisure.

    Gone Girl Will Surprise You

    I hated the book. David Fincher is the only reason I was compelled to watch the film. Some describe it as a preposterous thriller. Perhaps, but Fincher knows how to tell a story, even if we think we already know it. It gets dark. Everyone works well. Gilian Flynn even did her own screenply adaption. My favorite thing is the musical score. Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross just delivering. Very unnerving. Regardless of what you think you know, GONE GIRL will surprise you.

    Entertaining and really creepy all at the same time. I'm a huge fan of Rosamond and she does an excellent job in this film.....And she looks so hot...well, except for the slasher side of her...like I'd be living under the same roof as her.... Only reason I didn't give it a 5 was I felt at times Affleck was playing himself and not a character. Although he doesn't do a terrible job, I just feel like I'm watching just another 30 days in his life.

    This film was great. Clear and simple. The performances were excellent, and David Fincher's iconic way of directing is grea. But my main concern is how other people told me how "incredible" this film was, so it got my expectations up, and I think I was just a little disappointed. Don't get me wrong, the movie is great, but not to the point of greatness, and definitely not David Fincher's best film. Even so, this is a great time.

    This movie starts off slow but boy does the film pick up speed. You will never guess what happens and how the ending towards out. This is by far one of the best movies I have seen. There are so many twists and turns in this film that casual viewers will be begin to wonder did Nick Dunne kill his wife? I don't want to spoil anything for viewers. However, all I will say is purchase the movie asap. You will be blown away.

    One of the better films for the year, my wife had mixed responses to it. This was probably due to the shift in the storyline and shock fest that started about two-thirds through the film. The video and audio quality rank very well for a Blu-ray edition, although there is a lack of special features. Good film to have for the library and I would recommend the move, but if you don't have it yet, wait till a good sell.
