Christopher Webster [DVD News 06.15.12] action thriller



Hot damn, what a wonderful Friday treat. The day has come, Fincher fans. Those wonderful folks at the Criterion Collection have seen fit to release David Fincher's wonderful 1997 thriller, The Game, in the format it so rightly deserves with a ton of special features including an alternate ending!

The Game is one of my all time favourite films and I think it, and Panic Room, are grossly underrated.

Tickle me stoked.
