    A Filmmaker's Guide to the Greatest Films by David Fincher

    A Filmmaker's Guide to the Greatest Films by David Fincher

    David Fincher was born in Denver Colorado in 1957, making him 62 years' old at the time of this article being written. In his career, which began in 1980, he has amassed some great films and filmmaking styles that he is fairly well-known for. For example: he is very well-known for his main characters receiving increasing amounts of pressure throughout the film and become either fixated or obsessive on one idea. Son of a "Life" Magazine writer, David Fincher was no stranger to the world of celebrity obsession and so, I believe he satirically put obsession into his films in order to show us all what exactly it is we're missing.

    'South Park' Vs. 'Family Guy': 5 Times 'South Park' Went Too Far (& 5 Times 'Family Guy' Did)

    'South Park' Vs. 'Family Guy': 5 Times 'South Park' Went Too Far (& 5 Times 'Family Guy' Did)

    There's no denying the battle for the thorny crown forged from crude jokes and exploitable boundaries is still up for grabs. That's something we've been watching both South Park and Family Guy fight over for just shy of twenty years now. That's pretty impressive considering both iconic shows have, at times, pushed the boat out so far as to turn one too many heads and begin to question their careless propaganda. But, that being said, fans have enjoyed many years of watching the two factions hash it out over who gets the most despicable material past the boards.

    The Royal Ballet's 'The Sleeping Beauty' Review

    The Royal Ballet's 'The Sleeping Beauty' Review
