The movie Fight Club is a fictional graphic novel written by Chuck Palahniuk. It's the kind of story that people that like to read may be familiar with, but it isn't so popular on the big screen.
Fight Club, based on the graphic novel, is a story about a group of men who band together to fight for the ultimate power and understand their powerlessness over it. However, even the little ones who are targeted do not share their desire to change their world. All of them live by one rule: "You are what you eat."
Movie producers and directors took notice of the popularity of Fight Club. Director David Fincher was approached by film producer Scott Rudin, to make a movie based on Palahniuk's story. Rudin saw Fight Club as a possible trilogy. The first movie would be called "Jus In Bello" and the second movie would be called "Ex Libris".
One can only wonder why the movie did not proceed further. Critics were highly critical of the movie and some of them accused Fincher of "picking up where Palahniuk left off" and ignoring the story's message. The movie's critics thought that the story was too confusing and that Fincher didn't have the talent or the vision to make a good movie. It was also pointed out that the movie did not have the graphic violence and blood that Palahniuk wanted to present.
The movie did not attract viewers to the show The Fighting Sermon Serie, which is a sequel to Fight Club. There was little interest in the story and it just wasn't memorable. The creators of The Fighting Sermons were not happy with the way the movie turned out and thought that it lacked the message of the first movie.
The producers and directors of The Fighting Series had another choice - to adapt Palahniuk's original story into a TV series. The story was transferred into an eleven-episode TV series, which starred Brad Pitt as Tyler Durden. The series received a lot of praise from the critics and both the critics and the viewers were of the opinion that it was the best thing to happen to the series.
The majority of the critics felt that the movie Fight Club and the series The Fighting Sermons did not match up and it wasn't a case of one being better than the other. However, the critics did agree that both these series had their positive and negative points. Those that disliked the serie saw it as a poor adaptation of the story, while those that loved the serie see it as a worthy sequel to the original.
