"[The narrator's] life takes place in a cyber-punk dystopian city."

Seemed like an ordinary run-down city to me. What the hell was "cyber-punk" about it?

That's what makes it dystopian in a cyberpunk sense.

We've either found the one person who hasn't seen the movie, or has never watched Law and Order. Or just doesn't know what cyber-punk means. Either way, he's an anomaly.

I've wondered how the movie would play if Brad Pitt's voice was replaced with Edward Norton's. I think it would feeling a little disjointed for the entire movie (and that would be a good thing )

You're referring to the author of TFA, right? Because Fight Club isn't cyberpunk.

This sentence is complete gibberish. What the hell does "dystopian in a cyberpunk sense" MEAN??? Can all entities that fit the description "ordinary run-down city" be classified as "dystopian in a cyberpunk sense"??? Please clarify!

Fight Club was one of the most controversial films of the 90s

Goddamn I hate this word. It's an impotent adjective employed by lazy hacks and local TV news wankers. The word used to mean something, but now it's been tossed in the language landfill alongside "surreal", "extreme", and "literally".

Actually, as seen later in the film, Edward Norton's character is punching himself as he's punching Tyler so that doesn't really work. Congrats on getting AfterEffects for Christmas though.

Yeah I think the only "controversial" things about it was how it took on materialism and all the meatheads who missed the point of the movie and started their own fight clubs and people started getting hurt.

Anybody who started a fight club after watching fight club probably also enjoyed the hell out of All in the Family but think that Archie Bunker is the protagonist.

No Neon, No Rain, No Flying Cars, No Grifters, No Slag, No Bitheads, No Pacific Rim Genetic Melting Pot, No Ripperdocs.
So it is a cyber-punk dystopian city because it has none of the cool stuff! The worst thing a Cyber-punk city can be is boring.

To The Escape Zeppelin!: I didn't see anything cyber-punk about it either.


Well, they had cellphones and tennis shoes.  So, you know, that's like totally cyber-punk.  Plus, I think someone in the movie used a computer at some point for their job.

In a utopian cyberpunk society the society would be representative of cyberpunk.
Dystopian, being the opposite of utopian one would assume that the most dystopian version of cyberpunk would in no way be cyberpunk.
Don't take life so seriously you'll never get out of it alive. Especially with that attitude.

That's going to be a really weird movie, and probably will have a hard time being released. That, or it will be really loosely based on the book.

Honestly, "Fight Club" is a good movie, but there's no reason books can't just stay books. They don't have to be turned into movies or tv shows, as if that somehow is the mark of a good book.

Pretentious seems to have gained a meaning something along the lines of "I am too lazy/stupid to understand what the author/director/etc. was getting at, so I want to apply a negative adjective along those lines rather than speak badly of myself"

Yes, but you must admit it was a seminal tour de force.
 
2014-01-20 11:59:23 AM
I think it would ruin the scene where it's explaining the Tyler Durden thing, like where the Narrator meets Marla Singer and you see Tyler super-imposed on her for a split-second. There's actually quite a lot of stuff like that early in the movie, and not seeing Tyler there means you miss out of how he inserts Tyler into his life. The part where they meet on the plane isn't Tyler's first appearance.

Which is something I liked about Fight Club as a film as opposed to being a book, because you can't do things like that in a book without telegraphing the reveal. You have to foreshadow it, but subtlely and all that shiat.

Interesting you should say that.  I've recently noticed that the more dimly witted Farkers seem to have their very own favorite "big word" for this sort of thing, labeling others "PEDANT!" as if they've pulled out quite the triumphant little card to dismiss any potential criticism of their own failings.  I haven't checked if it's made it into the official Farkisms page yet.  Just as with the other words, it's questionable as to whether people using it have any idea what they're saying.

Yeah, I just watched that yesterday, and I couldn't help thinking it was just a remake of Johnny Mnemonic. Data in brain, goes to ripperdoc for help, data can save the world, street preacher-type villain, cold bureaucrat who is in way over their head, etc.

/It needed Dina Meyer in a sheet.

Actually, I liked the way it's done in the book.  CP gives it to you on the first page: "I know this because Tyler knows this." He never cheats it.

That's why I didn't see it.


'Elysium' blew but 'Johnny Mnemonic' was a great example of cyberpunk in cinema?

'JM' isn't even the best William Gibson adaptation, watch 'New Rose Hotel'

Robocop (original), Max Headroom, Equilibrium, Gattaca, Tetsuo, Akira...even Metropolis 60 years before the genre was coined. These are great examples of cyberpunk cinema.

You were spot on with Strange Days, though.
 
2014-01-20 12:04:33 PM
What's so brilliant about this?  The original movie has a scene where The Narrator is shown talking to an empty chair already.

Space Station Wagon: obscure references too)


Nothing is obscure on Fark. Nothing. We have study groups on the Manga that was based on Ms Shackles 1985 3rd grade's play of Our Town.


and if I actually did find something obscure....

Welllllllll. touch down dance time
