Rating my life one post at a time….

Life when Tyler Durden is around !!

If you Wake up at a different time, in a different place, could you wake up as a different person ?

How many times have you guys asked that question to yourself ? When you are at office you are different person, when you meet ur parents you are different person, when you father’s friends come home for dinner you are a different person !! .

I got an oppurtunity to watch this movie called FIGHT CLUB. I know it released long back but i could not watch it for a long time. This movie is what i call Inspirational. Not that you end up getting into a fight after you see this movie. But end up questioning yourself whether your present life is complete. If it is not, Tyler Durden says never mind because he says ” I say never be complete, I say stop being perfect, I say let…..lets evolve, let the chips fall where they may “.

The movie is all about two guys….err infact one person with two different personality. The one he is and the other he wants to be. Tyler is the guy he wants to be and Narrator is the guy he is. I would say there is a Tyler Durden in everyone of us. You mite say that this is crazy for this Tyler would have apporpriately answered “People do it everyday, they talk to themselves….they see themselves as they’d like to be, they don’t have the courage you have, to jst run with it”.

How many times have you guys felt like beating someone . How many times have you felt that you could afford yourself a blow on ur face or stomach. Well Tyler helps you make these things possible. As i said before Tyler is not a bad inspiration. Jst because he asks Narrator to fight does not mean you have to get urself some bruises. The message here is “Be who you are…just because all the horses are drinking from the pond does not mean you have to drink the water too…drink when you are thirsty”.

Its not a movie where you will find great romance. Its not a movie where you will find action. Its a movie where you will find dialogues which will make you think. For instance there is a sequence where Tyler says ” We are the middle children of history. No purpose or place. We have no great war. No Great Depression. Our Great War’s a spiritual war…..our Great Depression is our lives.”

This is the movie all about. Make you realise that your job, you credit cards, your nokia cellphones does not make you complete. Be who you are and dont give a damn for anything and anyone.

I know probably some of you guys mite argue that the world is not going to accept when you end up being like Tyler. Well i would say “We’re consumers. We are by-products of lifestyle obsession. Murder, Crime, Poverty, these things dont concern us What concerns are celebrity magazines, television with 500 channels, some guy’s name on our underwear……”

I would give Fight Club 10/10 . Its worth watching it and its more worth thinking about it after watching it.

Let me finish in the words of Tyler ” You have to consider the possibility that God does not like you. He never wanted you. In all probability, he hates you. Remember this is not the worst thing that can happen……”

    I chked out FightClub after reading this post. ;) Gotto to see one more time.

    In the similar lines, with a lighter treatment is “Chaos Theory”:

    Another movie, which would get you “thinking” is Into The Wild.

    (removing links to IMDB, WP doesn’t seem to allow this)

  2. Ranjhith,
