The other weekend, MRS THE IPC and I hit the theaters to see GONE GIRL at 11:00 AM on a Saturday. The theater was absolutely PACKED and the concession line was ridiculous and while I was standing there among a bunch of yammering people, I started to get itchy and tic-y and edgy and started questioning my will to go on. But I had made a promise and I intended to keep it and I love MRS THE IPC so I pressed on and eventually got my hot dog and my popcorn and we got into the theater without any trouble. As I was sitting there minding my own business, two enormous, very loud women came and sat right beside me and started talking as loud as they could while they shoved Milk Duds and Mike and Ikes down their throats…. and my head almost popped off out of antisocialism and general hatred….
But I stayed the course and the movie started and after it was all said and done, I had witnessed two too many dongs and a set of boobs but————-> I really liked it. I thought it was probably about 40 minutes too long and was awful slow in some parts but it was really good and Fincher finally atoned for the miserable THE SOCIAL NETWORK. I thought Ben AfflAck did a good job and the one chick sure was a crazy bitch but I think the star of the show was the detective –
Joanie Stubbs Kim Dickens. I thought she did a GREAT job and I am proud to see her getting a role in a big time movie. Oh… and this girl is in it:
In case you missed that:
Anyway – I’m seeing a lot of posts out here about this movie by people that do this shit much better than I do, so we’ll just call it good and move on! BUT – this movie DID inspire me to do something! If you want to see what, because you are inquisitive, beautiful and Most Beloved, please click this image:
