Jack Nicholson
Nothing has polarized society more than the debate on abortion. One side constantly argues that it's immoral and that human life begins in the womb, while the other side argues that if someone gets pregnant who doesn't want to, she should have the choice to terminate that pregnancy (as opposed to either abstaining from sex or using methods of birth control other than none).

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."
