Opinion

From Library Staff

WATCHED- This movie was really well done. After the book I kept wondering how they could do the movie to even compare to it... and they did. I felt the same way about reading and watching Game of Thrones. I kept thinking... how does no one know who these characters really are when reading them?! ... Read More »

I saw that this film was considered in some top 20 list of thrillers/mysteries. I thought it could be in the top 25 to 30; but so what? It was a good one.

I have read the book, which was an average effort. The movie reflects the book and perhaps turns out even worse. Looks as though 2-3 directors worked on disjointed parts and did a cut & paste job in the end. Would fit into a B+ TV Movie slot if it wasn't for the star cast and publicity.

Hmmm... we didn't get past the 5 minute mark. I am not sure if it was the acting, the script or the directing, but it seemed forced and unnatural.

Overall a good movie, but one of the scenes at the end was just so stupid that it really took away my enjoyment of the film. Who goes to a hospital and then gets released covered in blood?

After hearing rave reviews of the book, I gave it a read. Not good. Poorly written, predictable, middle school level with big words thrown in to sound smart. That said, the movie made it worse. The only strength (using the word loosely) that the book had letting you into the way the characters were thinking and justifying. The movie loses that completely. Do not waste your time.

Dark and twisted, GONE GIRL is everything I hoped for from director David Fincher and phenomenal actors Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike. Every performance is spot-on perfect, including those from Neil Patrick Harris and -- gasp! -- Tyler Perry. I won't dare spoil it by revealing plot details. I loved it, and surely you will, too.

Sexual Content: Some graphic sex. Lots of talk of cheating, sex, different positions, oral sex ect.. There is implied oral sex, bare breasts, rape, and self genital mutilation. Total: 8.5/10

Violence: Talk of violence. A throat is slit and blood sprays everywhere for about a minute. Extremely graphic. total violence: 7/10 Note: i only gave a 7/10 for violence because there isn't a lot of it, however, the graphicness of the throat slit scene deserves a 10/10. it doesn't get more graphic than that.

Other: It's not a movie for teens especially 13. Too graphic, lots of foul language, too sexual & violent. I feel 18 & up maybe 21 of age & up is better. It's disturbing to see someone have so much anger & revenge just to get her way.

Margo Dunne: [discussing what kind of wood item Nick is going to give to Amy for their 5th wedding anniversary, the "wood" anniversary] So what did you get her?
Nick Dunne: There's no good gift for wood.
Margo Dunne: I know. Go home, fuck her brains out, smack her with your penis, and you say, "There's some wood for you, bitch!"

Clue two.
"Hey, handsome man,
let's go undercover."
"You'll be the spy, and
I'll be his lover."
"Let's head on over..."
"To the little brown house."
"We'll play hot, doting husband, sweet, loving spouse."

Amy: Desi, how could I be bored? You can discuss 18th-century symphonies...19th-century impressionists, quote proust in French. Nick's idea of culture was a reality TV marathon...With one hand down his boxers.

Amy: You think you would be happy with a nice Midwestern girl? No way, baby. I'm it.
Nick: Look, you're delusional. You're insane. Why would you even want this? Yes, I loved you. And then all we did was resent each other, and try to control each other. And cause each other pain.
Amy: That's marriage.

Amy: All those awful couples we know. Those wives who treat their men like dancing monkeys... To be trained and paraded.
Nick: Husbands who treat their wives like the highway patrol ...To be out-foxed and avoided.

many more from IMDb:

Officer You ever hear the expression the simplest answer is often the correct one?
Rhonda: Actually, I have never found that to be true.

Amy: Nick dunne took my pride and my dignity and my hope and my money. He took and took from me until I no longer existed. That's murder.
