Is fight club a good movie? (self.discussion)
submitted 3 years ago by gingirl
It's so anti toxic masculinity but at the same time so violent. also people have to sit through an hour of terrible triggers to get to the decent parts.
its a very fine border, i just cant tell.

it really kinda fetishises a lot of what 'masculinity' is, whilst also selling the most directionless and meaningless anti-consumerist rhetoric. Bad film, I say.

yeah, you're right. maybe my shitiest friends could benefit from the anti consumerism, but they would probably turn into tyler durden likes and start down a bad road meanness.
[–]nat 12 points13 points14 points 3 years ago
I don't mean that 'anti-consumerism' is a bad thing, it's just useless when it's as spineless and indirect as it is in fight club

i liked it the first time i saw it. the second time, i realized that i didn't really get it the first time and also that i didn't actually like it.
i'm not a fan of the hyper-violence, for sure.

it doesn't help most of my friends who are diehard fans love it for the hypermasculine part and don't know/care about anything else

i like the movie for fincher's directing and i like the book for palahniuk's writing. yeah it has its ups and downs but the best way to see if you like it is to watch it yourself.
