Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you’re alive. If you don’t claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned. Clever, savagely witty and dark, Fight Club: 10th Anniversary Edition, at last hits Blu-Ray this coming Monday. Acclaimed filmmaker and Academy Award-nominee David Fincher (Se7en, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) spent hours analysing every shot in his cult classic, making painstaking alterations to almost every frame to make the most of high def.

Plus, there’s a big surprise the minute you pop the disc into your Blu-Ray player. Fincher thought it would be funny to use the menu from sweet bubble-gum romance Never Been Kissed, the farthest possible thing from his own dark concoction Fight Club. Barrymore’s inexpensive comedy grossed more in America, on initial release, though it probably can’t boast the loyal fan base of Fight Club, some years down the line.
