This one is going to be short and sweet....its late and I am tired! Tonight I went to see the advanced screening for Gone Girl - read more about it here
Have you read this book?? I really think that you should, the book was amazing and this was one of the best book adaptations I have seen in a long time! If you don't want spoilers this is the time to turn and run....run right to the theater and see this!
This movie stars Ben Affleck as Nick Dunne, a man who has been accused of the murder of his missing wife. Rosamund Pike plays Amy Dunne, the missing and assumed murdered wife. Ben was the perfect casting for Nick, this ability to be lovable and a total smug dick at the same time! Rosamund does a very convincing straight up psycho! Really the casting in this movie was spot on, as far as I am concerned anyway!
I don't want to give away the twist on which the book and movie rely, but if you haven't read the book hold on to your seats and get ready for a ride!!
This movie clocks in at 149 minutes, but let me tell you, it goes by so fast you don't even realize it. This movie had more than a few laugh out loud moments and I think Gillian Flynn did a fantastic job taking it from book to screenplay. She made a few changes to the end of the movie from the book, but nothing that takes away from the story.
I totally would have paid to see this movie and been very happy! Let me know what you think!
