Unless you’ve been under a rock, you are probably fully aware that there is a book and now a movie called Gone Girl. If for some reason you haven’t seen the trailer, here it is:
And I’d like to point out a quick scene from the trailer. Nick Dunne (one of the main characters) owns a bar called The Bar. He visits there a couple times during the movie and at one point drives by the outside to see the media frenzy that is happening because of his missing wife.
And because I am a superfan, I insisted that while we were visiting Missouri last summer we visit the location the movie was filmed.
ANYWAY! Matt and I went and saw the movie last week. It’s superb, go see it! It follows the book quite closely. There IS a lot of sexual content (a bit much I thought… but I guess it was added for shock value, you will see parts of Ben Affleck and Neil Patrick Harris that you have never seen) and a really graphic gory scene that was a little over the top – so consider yourself warned. I thought the actors did an exceptional job (even tho Rosamund Pike’s voice kinda got on my nerves – it’s hard for me because she will always be the quiet sister Jane from Pride and Prejudice).
Matt did a fantastic job on his review. Check it out for additional info. And then go see the movie…
You can also find some other good reviews on current movies if you are looking for something a little different.
Cady and I are headed to see a screening of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day this week. I’ll let ya’ll know what I think.
