Best David Fincher Film

Title says it all. I like all of Fincher's films.. they all have a rather dark theme. On IMDB they list Mission: Impossible 3 and Rendezous with Rama as upcoming. And Sony has been batting around the budget for Fertig. Thoughts? Discuss...

I pick Fight Club by just a bit over Se7en. Both of them are in my top 10

Fertig! Fertig!

I hope they shoot it in the Philippines.

Though it might be difficult, with the war going on

FC's my all-time fave, so that probably makes it my fave Fincher. Big fan of the rest except A^3.

Fight Club was my choice.. followed by The Game. Se7en would have been first if he had shot the original ending.

Fight Club.
Se7en was excellent, but it was only excellent in the first viewing. Maybe it's me, but the movie just wasn't made for multiple viewings.
So I pick Fight Club, a movie that actually got better with each viewing.

I haven't read the script and Fincher's name still seems attached to it. Not sure if Pitt is still attached [since he's on Troy]. All I know is that they're running budget numbers on it to see if it could be a possibility.

The Game is my favorite, followed by Se7en, and a great distance behind, Panic Room and Fight Club.

Yep, I'm the guy who voted for Alien3, and I'd do it again, dammit! Seriously, I enjoy all of Fincher's movies (although Panic Room was rather disappointing), but have seen Alien3 the most, and stop to watch it whenever I catch it on satellite. Highly underrated.

I always thought, that Se7en was as well-made a thriller as you can find. I loved Fight Club, but I thought that at times it was more style than substance, whereas Se7en had everything that makes a good thriller--thanks to Alfred Hitchcock.

The Game was pretty good, until the trite and absolutely preposterous ending.
