“This guy’s walkin’ down a street when he falls in a hole. The walls are so steep he can’t get out. A doctor passes by and the guy shouts up, “Hey you! Can you help me out?” The doctor writes a prescription, throws it down in the hole, and moves on. Then a priest comes along and the guy shouts up, “Father, I’m down in this hole; can you help me out?” The priest writes out a prayer, throws it down in the hole and moves on. Then a friend walks by. “Hey, Joe, it’s me. Can ya help me out?” And the friend jumps in the hole. Our guy says, “Are ya stupid? Now we’re both down here.” The friend says, “Yeah, but I’ve been down here before and I know the way out.”
- Leo McGarry, The West Wing

It’s interesting to me that this poster touts a film “from the director of FIGHT CLUB…” It also mentions THE SOCIAL NETWORK, and that makes sense. That film was released recently and was successful both critically and commercially. 
Fight Club, however, is 15 years old and was not a success upon its release; it found a cult audience in the ensuing decade.
So, it stands to reason that Fight Club is on this poster to clue us in on some aspect of the narrative and gear us up for a story that isn’t all it seems and may even contain a monster ending twist. 
People who’ve read the book already know. I’m holding out for the movie. But the inclusion of Fight Club (one of my favorite movies of all time) has me even more excited.

Stuff and Such

When someone says something is their “favorite” tv show / movie / album / book / whatever, I assume they are knowledgeable about it. In fact, I assume everyone is as obsessive (or at least somewhat as invested) as I am about the things they like. 

Instead, this is typically how these conversations play out. 

Them: I love The West Wing, it’s my FAVORITE show.

Me: Me too! Who is your favorite character? Favorite season?

Them: Oh, I’ve only seen a handful of episodes, I’m not familiar with all the people. But it’s a great show.

Me: *blank stare*
