It’s been seven years and it’s still not okay. On February 27th 2011, we watched in horror as The King’s Speech took home the Oscar for Best Picture at the 83rd Academy Awards. An Oscar that belonged to David Fincher’s The Social Network – right?!
Well you guys voted, and so in Episode 67 we revisit the woes of a generation to see if this once perfect movie has stood the test of time, and still remains the one true winner.

With Gone Girl on everyone’s mind, the chicks decide to look at the earlier work of David Fincher. Join us as we go through the filmography of Hollywood’s reigning king of thrills and oh so cool film-making and share our thoughts on it.
(Note: We had some technical difficulties with the recording of this episode so it might not be very smooth to listen to but we hope our enthusiasm for the director and his work makes up for it. Thank you for bearing with us.)
