Tuesday Movie: Gone Girl


On Saturday, I took my mom to see Gone Girl.  All I have to say is "That was awkward." Even though I'm an adult woman,  I still feel weird with my mom sitting next to me munching on popcorn while Ben munches on, well, you get the idea.  Apparently Ben goes full frontal, but I somehow missed this. Darn!

Anyway, I enjoyed the movie.  I also enjoyed the book.  And guess what?  It addresses death, so that's why it is here on this blog.  Although only one person dies in the film (and I'm not saying who it is), the film is really about the role that media plays in a murder.  And it's not always good.  Everyone is entitled to their day in court, but with 24 hour news coverage, the media can try and convict someone in the court of public opinion.

So, have you seen the movie?  Did you catch a glimpse of Ben's penis? What did you think?

  1. Ha! I went with my 15-year-old son, so yeah, there was an awkward moment! I missed the full frontal--or if I didn't I forgot about it (sorry, Ben)! I loved the book and I was pleased to see that the author also wrote the screenplay.

    1. I think your experience might have been more awkward!
      Apparently, Ben's penis is visible in the shower scene. So now you know and can look for it when the DVD comes out:)

  2. I'll keep a look out ;-) (And I thought the 50 Shades of Grey trailer before the movie was awkward enough!)
