Forgotten Friday Flick - 'The Game'
With the success of David Fincher’s film "Gone Girl" (due in no small part to Rosamund Pike’s performance of course!) it seemed fitting to revisit some of the lessor known earlier work of the visually gifted auteur – welcome to Forgotten Friday Flick! Today we’re going old school Fincher back in the day when his sinister style and visual flair was front and center. Matched with a captivating story, terrific twists and one killer cast, this was a film I consider to be Fincher’s finest. Not to worry "Fight Club" fans, it’s only…"The Game."

But the stylistic, clever and altogether riveting new five-star film "Killers" from the famed Mo Brothers manages through its story examination of good vs. evil to bring something completely compelling to a familiar subjec...
