Brad Pitt and Edward Norton in Fight Club

Most of you have seen Fight Club by now, but if you haven’t and are not at all familiar with it, this post will be spoilery and you should stop reading now if you care about such things.

For everyone who has seen the movie, you know that the big reveal at the end is that Brad Pitt‘s Tyler Durden character is not real, but a second personality within Edward Norton‘s Narrator character.

Though we see Pitt through most of the movie, Richard Trammell decided he wanted to see what the movie might look like if Durden were removed from the film so that it appeared as if the Narrator was talking to no one. You can see what this version of the movie would have looked like in the video below.

Chuck Palahniuk

Earlier this year, Chuck Palahniuk made it known that he was working on a sequel to his best-selling book Fight Club, which would be presented in graphic novel form rather than as a book. Beyond just changing the format of the novel, Palahniuk also let it be known that the sequel would be told from Tyler Durden’s point of view, rather than The Narrator who told the story in the original book.

The news was first dropped at the 2013 San Diego Comic Con during the “Ode to Nerds” panel by Palahniuk, who then sent out a more detailed text synopsis of the story’s outline. Now comes even more details on the sequel, which can be read below.

Fight Club

A sequel to the Chuck Palahniuk novel Fight Club is on the way, the author revealed at the recent San Diego Comic-Con. The book was adapted into a movie directed by David Fincher and starring Edward Norton and Brad Pitt in 1999.

But instead of another novel, the sequel will actually come in the form of a serialized graphic novel, which will take place ten years after the events of the original story. For those who aren’t aware, the original tells the story of a normal, everyday, boring man who pretends to have problems in order to attend support groups that help alleviate his insomnia that one day meets a mysterious man named Tyler Durden who changes his life entirely.

Continue reading to check out a statement from Palahniuk about the announcement and what the sequel will be about.

The Ultimate Geek Movies Of All TimeThis week, the podcast Social Blend, which I co-host with Jay Fowler aka SilentJay74, was invaded by the Geeks of Doom! Empress Eve and Tched were considerate enough to join us in a discussion focusing on what we believe to be The Ultimate Geek Movies of All Time.

Quite frequently, you will find some blogs try to come up with some attempt at a “Top 10” list of best movies within any given subject area, but for this special edition of Social Blend, we decided to simply discuss, debate, and squabble about (and in some cases, ridicule) the movies we collectively believe should be on every geek’s DVD shelf.

Aside from the obvious selections from the dominions of Star Wars and Star Trek, we had a look at all kinds of movies from a wide range of genres and categories — from movies based on comics, to science fiction, to music-based films, to horror and beyond.

Blu-ray Review: Fight Club

Fight Club Blu-ray DVDFight Club
10th Anniversary Edition – Blu-ray
Directed by David Fincher
Starring Edward Norton, Brad Pit, Helena Bonham Carter, Meat Loaf
Twentieth Century Fox
Release Date: November 17, 2009

The tail end of the 90s was branded with a profound exclamation point, dealing with existentialism, fractured identities, and mindsets that were convoluted and shifty. People asked questions such as who are we? What good are we? Are we constructed socially or does man possess the capability of reasoning? Weeding out all impurities that blockade us; insulating us from conceptualizing what and who we truly are, and trying to summon back the primitive man by exhibiting symptoms of commercialism (IKEA) and materialism (khakis), Fight Club is sending crushing blows to the entire consumerist establishment that claims they know what is best for humanity. By anesthetizing society? Or by genetically breeding humans to behave like wild consumers who negate their true passions to conform to what society wants them to be? As audacious as this all sounds Fight Club is direct and impactful in its way of conveying this message. Uncompromising in its ability to take us to uncharted territories, a raw and unforgettable experience is dished out.

This vicious, yet revolutionary, assault is not presented in a soft and snug manner. The spokesperson for this radical movement, revolutionist Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt), acknowledges consumerism with arms outspread. Once within his grasp he turns it into a burden, making a materialistic individual, our narrator (Edward Norton), realize that materialism has the tendency to make the human soul rot, decay and then wither away. Not fulfilling or sustaining it as the ads claim to do.
