Gone Girl (2014)

This movie was a dark and twisted mindfuck. It had hilarious moments, gruesome moments, and tense moments.

I also liked the characters.

As a warning, the movie was long. Unfortunately, it was one of those movies which releases a lot of the core tension partway through and becomes a different movie. Interstellar (2014), another long movie, did this too, but at least Interstellar retained its momentum. With Gone Girl, the movie's pacing dropped as I sat wondering where the movie was going to take itself.

In the end, I failed to realize that the movie was more character driven. In contrast, Interstellar develops its characters, but is more plot driven.

Overall, the movie was intense, twisted, and awesome. 11:00PM PT

Trailers: Interstellar (2014), Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014), Taken 3. 10:59PM PT*
*We made a note to ourselves to remember that usually movies at the cheap theater have less trailers and therefore will start closer to the designated start time.
