Fear.


David Fincher's works are never short on splendor captured on celluloid, but Zodiac, easily one of the best shot films of the decade, really takes the cake with its masterful cinematography by Harris Savides.

Robert Graysmith (Jake Gyllenhaal) is in the basement of a man who he believes can lead him to the Zodiac, little does he know that the man whose basement he's in could be the Zodiac himself. Fear hasn't translated this easily to an audience since Lila Crane was trapped in the home of Norman Bates, with his mother barreling down on her in a corridor she can't run out of.

This is just one of several moments that hold you in a vice-like grip. Perhaps Fight Club should look over its shoulder as the best of Fincher's filmmography.

Ant-man Finally Casted?

It looks like Nathan Fillion might be playing a superhero afterall. After being considered for roles in Green Lantern, and Captain America,Fillion (most remembered as Malcolm Reynolds in the cult-hit Firefly) is reportedly in final negotiations to play Dr. Hank Pym in the new Avengers film. It hasn't been stated whether Pym would be Ant-man in the film, or just a S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist, but we're holding out hope.
