Jason watches GONE GIRL

And I liked it. It's the perfect date movie for people who are incredibly cynical and jaded about relationships. Yeah, it's misogynistic, but only as a result of having a pretty negative attitude about just about everyone and everything. Women (at least, the titular girl who is gone) are scheming and manipulative. But men are narcissistic, idiotic cheaters and everybody else just likes to watch the train wreck. Nobody comes away looking good in this movie. Well, maybe [SPOILER ALERT: the sister character. She just comes away looking miserable, but not evil. Everyone else comes away looking evil. END SPOILER]

You can find plot synopses, analysis, and think pieces elsewhere. I just want to say this is a great movie to hate the world to.
