Movie of the Year: 1999
The Taste Buds tackle the 1999 film Fight Club! The story of a loser dreaming up a dreamy best friend that becomes his mortal enemy (spoiler alert!) is classic nineties, and the Taste Buds dig into the nitty gritty of David Fincher’s follow up to Se7en. If you’re looking for a show where three friends accuse each other of being the Tyler Durden in everything but the looks, you’ve come to the right place. And if you’re looking for a show where three white dudes wrestle with how this film lionizes white violence, you’ve come to the right place.
But more than hard hitting analysis, this show will give you something no other Fight Club podcast can: The Mount Rushmore of 1999 TV! Fight Club Trivia! The age-old game, Old-timey or Ooo-timey! And perhaps the most important discussion of all, What Monster Hath This Wrought?
