    It wasn't Chuck's best book. I prefer Choke. But Fight Club was still pretty solid on its own. I know how you feel about it being too edgy, but I thought the smoldering homoeroticism kept it from being too much of a bro flick. It's not unlike the band Tool in that you have to be very suspicious of people who cite it as a personal favorite.

    What was so bad about the ending? The book was more of a mindfuck.

    'Eight-year olds' was a reference to the Big Lebowski. My apologies, I was being unnecessarily nerdy.


    As for favourite movies, I hear 'Stop! My Ass is on Fire 8', is pretty cool.

    Yeah. It does seem to glorify violence or at least make it appear sexy. It's all good fun, though, and the main character was somewhat horrified when the group moved on from underground street fighting to acts of terrorism.

    Pulp Fiction is also one of my favorite movies! I like Before Sunrise & Before Sunset as well.

    and The Science of Sleep, Amelie, White, Red are also good, which are French movies. .

    Found many of you guys' favorites are also my favorites. hehehe. But does anybody like Japanese ones? I'd like to recommend Love Letter, Welcome Mr. Mcdonald, Memories of Matsuko..

    In addition, Wang Kar Wai's works and a Korean movie director Jang Jin's works are recommendable, too.
