David Griffiths:

If people were asked to name a director that has been pretty much constant for releasing great films over his career many would have David Fincher on their list. With films like Se7en, Fight Club and The Social Network on his resume you could argue that he is one of the most important directors of the past twenty years. Hell, he is even one of the very few directors who have been able to make a U.S. remake of a foreign film not only something watchable but something that was a hit with both critics and the public alike.

Now comes his latest film Gone Girl, which to many film lovers has become one of the most eagerly anticipated films of 2014. So how does it fair up? Well to be honest this is probably the must un-David Fincher films that Fincher has made to date in his career, but despite saying that this is a film that certainly works and shows that there are people out there in the cinematic world who are willing to try something different and be creative in doing so.

Based on Gillian Flynn’s hit novel of the same name the story of Gone Girl is told in three parts. First we find out-of-work writer Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) return home one day to find his wife Amy Dunne (Rosamund Pike) missing. Nick is a suspect from Day One and even the help of celebrity lawyer Tanner Bolt (Tyler Perry) can’t stop the media from making him one of America’s most hated men.

The second part of the film follows Amy’s story and then the third and final act pretty much delivers the wash-up and sees Detective Rhonda Boney (Kim Dickens) trying to tie up the loose ends of the case and help those that have been caught up in it all get on with their lives.

Now the first thing you’ll notice is that I’ve been pretty vague in my description of the plot of the film. That is because if someone ruins what happens in this film for you then they are the kind of the person that you should not associate with, this is a film that you need to go into cold with. Even those that have read the novel will not get the special thrill that those who know nothing about the story will get when they view this film.

The three acts of the film being so well defined throughout the film does take some getting used to but it actually does work and you certainly aren’t going to complain when the constant twists and turns that seem to play with your mind throughout this film. Just a word of warning though don’t try to over think the criminal case part of this film because while Fincher and Flynn (who is also the screenwriter here) have been pretty smart it would only take someone who has watched a couple of episodes of C.S.I. to see that there are many flaws involved in this film’s so called ingenious criminal plot.

One of the things that really lifts this film though is the style and tone that Fincher and Flynn have brought to the table. The script heads into some pretty dark areas but unlike a film like The Lovely Bones there is also some dark humor in there designed to get a chuckle from the audience. That element brings a touch of Fargo to the film while the town setting and Fincher’s way of portraying the community and society instantly conjures up thoughts of David Lynch’s career, particularly Twin Peaks. The good thing is that these styles meld together pretty well and despite the film’s length this is a film that will keep you engrossed for the entire time without any clock-watching.

Once again though the big talking point about this film is the fact that David Fincher has once again got the most out of his cast. Many like to highlight the fact that Ben Affleck has made some horrendous films over his career (and let’s be honest films like Gigli are pretty hard to forget) but over recent years he has also become one the finest characters actors going around. Here Fincher works with that and as a result you see Affleck play Nick Dunne in such a way that as an audience you find your feelings for the guy change almost from minute-to-minute. One moment you feel sorry for him and the next you are hoping he gets the death penalty.

Fincher also directs Rosamund Pike to a performance that should see her get an Oscar nomination. She plays a character with a lot of ‘issues’ (again I don’t want to give anything away) in such a way that she conjures up thoughts of some of the performances by the leading ladies in past 90s thrillers like Basic Instinct. Even the sub-cast get a good look in here with Kim Dickens playing Fincher’s Lynch-like Detective brilliantly well, Tyler Perry finally delivering a performance that will warm him to people outside of his normal fan base while Neil Patrick Harris joins the growing list of comedic actors who are dangerously good when playing criminally minded nut-jobs.

While not as good as some of Fincher’s previous films like Se7en and The Social Network Gone Girl is still a credible film that does deserve to be listed as one of 2014’s finest. The twists and turns of the plot will captivate the audience while its slamming of today’s trial-by-media mentality also gives the audience something to ponder once the credits have rolled. The film’s unique mix of drama, suspense and dark humor should guarantee that it also stands up against the test of time.

Gone Girl

A new trailer has been released for David Fincher’s latest film Gone Girl.

The film stars Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike and will be released in the United States on the 3rd October, 2014.

You can view the new Gone Girl trailer below:

 

One Tree Hill

“One Tree Hill” turned into one of the most popular television shows of the early 2000s. The show, which was created by Mark Schwahn, filled the void left by the demise of “Dawson’s Creek” and while it always seemed to skirt the tight line between soap or drama did produce some moments of good acting. With the show being off the air for a while now we take a look at what the members of the cast are doing now.

Bethany Joy Lenz: Bethany Joy Lenz played the sweet and trusting Haley James Scott in “One Tree Hill.” During her time on the show her character of Haley also made a name for herself as a singer, a career that Lenz also wanted to pursue. Since the show ended Lenz has released two albums independently – “Then Slowly Grows” (2012) and “Your Woman” (2013). She has also done some television work, appearing in the shows “Sock Monkee Therapy,” “C.S.I: Crime Scene Investigation” and “Men At Work” in small roles. She has also had bigger roles in the hit series “Dexter” where she played Cassie Jollenston.

Sophia Bush: No character on “One Tree Hill” changed as much as Brooke Davis. The challenging role saw Sophia Bush go from playing a trampy High School cheerleader in the first two seasons to a gifted young business woman in the later seasons. During her time on “One Tree Hill” Sophia Bush appeared in notable films like “John Tucker Must Die,” “The Hitcher” and “Chalet Girl.” Since the show wrapped production she has appeared in the television movie “Hatfields & McCorys” and had a starring role in the short lived “Partners” alongside Brandon Routh. In 2013 she played Erin Lindsay in “Chicago Fire” which has now spun-off into “Chicago PD” in which she now has a lead role.

James Lafferty: Before “One Tree Hill” James Lafferty only had limited acting experience. Instead it was his basketball skills that won over creator Mark Schwahn, something that came in handy seeing his character of Nathan Scott started out as a high school basketballer and eventually made it to the big league in the NBA. Since “One Tree Hill” ended Lafferty has appeared in a television show called “Crisis” and also two feature films – “Lost On Purpose” (with Jane Kaczmarek) and horror film “Oculus” with Katee Sackhoff. He will also soon be seen on the big screen once again, this time alongside Skeet Ulrich in the war film “Citizen Soldiers.”

Lee Norris: Lee Norris has to be one of the luckiest cast members of “One Tree Hill.” His character of Mouth started off as a ‘fringe’ character – a lovable loser who the other characters always seemed to feel comfortable opening up to. As the show went on though the audience ended up loving Mouth and soon Lee Norris was a full-time cast member. Before “One Tree Hill” Norris had appeared in “Dawson’s Creek” as well as feature film “Zodiac.” Since the show wrapped he has appeared in one episode of “Paulilu Mixtape” and is currently filming “Gone Girl,” a feature film directed by David Fincher and starring Ben Affleck.

Paul Johansson: Often the bad guy of a television series is the character most remembered. Actor Paul Johansson certainly had the bad guy role down pat in “One Tree Hill” when he played evil Dad turn murderer as Dan Scott. Before the show began Johansson had already put together a pretty decent acting Resume. Since the show has finished he has been one of the busiest actors. He has appeared in television shows “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” and “Beauty And The Beast.” He has also appeared in number of television movies including “Stonados” and “House Of Secrets.” Johansson fans can also be excited by the fact that he will soon be appearing in the feature films “Dear Eleanor” (with Jessica Alba) and John Stockewell’s “Kid Cannabis.”

Chad Michael Murray: “One Tree Hill” was Chad Michael Murray’s show. In the early days the show centered completely around his character of the basketball playing writer Lucas Scott, but some off-screen wrangling saw Murray leave the show before it wrapped production in 2012. That hasn’t seemed to have affected Murray’s career and since his departure he has worked on other shows including “Southland” and “Chosen.” He has also appeared in a number of feature films including “Day One” (with Kat Dennings), the critically acclaimed “Fruitvale Station,” “The Haunting In Connecticut 2: Ghosts Of Georgia” (with Katee Sackhoff), “Cavemen” and “Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas.” He will also soon be appearing on the big screen once again in “Other People’s Children” and the new Nicolas Cage film “Left Behind.”

Hilarie Burton: The other half of “One Tree Hill’s” most epic romances was Hilarie Burton as she played the music obsessed Peyton. Before “One Tree Hill” Burton was mainly known as a VJ and she had had one small appearance in “Dawson’s Creek” playing herself. While she was working on “One Tree Hill” she put together a decent resume by appearing in feature films including “Our Very Own,” “The List,” the underrated “Normal Adolescent Behaviour,” “Solstice” and “The Secret Life Of Bees” (as part of an all-star cast including Queen Latifah, Jennifer Hudson and Dakota Fanning). Since she departed “One Tree Hill” she has appeared on television shows including “Castle,” “White Collar,” “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Hostages.” She has also had roles in television movies like “Naughty Or Nice,” “The List” and “Christmas On The Bayou.” Her latest film credit was in “Bloodworth” (with Hilary Duff, Val Kilmer and Kris Kristofferson) and she will soon be appearing in “Plastic Jesus” (with Mackenzie Foy and Paul Schneider.

Antwon Tanner: One of the other lucky actors in “One Tree Hill” was Antwon Tanner. Just like Lee Norris his character of Skills was a ‘fringe’ character who only seemed to be in the show for comic relief. However the character proved popular with the audience and soon he became a full cast member. Over the years before he was on the show Tanner had appeared in a number of movies including the underrated “Coach Carter” (with Denzel Washington). Since the show finished in 2012 he has also been in other movies including “One Blood,” “Percentage,” “Crush,” “The Dempsey Sisters” and “Q.” He will soon also be appearing in new movies “C.R.U.,” “7 Faces Of Jack The Ripper,” “Two Faced” and “Who Can I Run To.”

Yes “One Tree Hill’ may have finished but it seems like fans of the show will be able to watch their favorite actors on the big screen for a long time to come.
