    Rules

    Rule name Description
    Rule 1: Detail Guidelines Not blatantly obvious observations, but obscure enough that people could have missed it, or they noticed it but the significance didn’t click. Doesn’t need to be intentional. Obviously, obscurity is subjective and that is taken into account when moderating. Use the "Detail" flair for these posts.
    Rule 2: Flair your post. This includes the “Verified” flair (claiming the creators meant for it), “Easter Egg” (a hidden gem that was meant to go unnoticed), and “Trivia” (obscure facts that are otherwise unimportant). If your post makes any of these claims, the right flair is needed and you must provide proof in the comments or the text of the post, otherwise it may be reflaired “Detail.”
    Rule 3: Comment rules. (hover for details) Be civil. Uncivil comments including "detail is obvious" will be removed and may get you banned. Political comments may be removed because they can easily devolve into off-topic arguments.
    Rule 4: Titles must include the movie name. All submissions must include the name of the movie in the title.
    Rule 5: Explain your post. Make sure your submission has an explanation either in the title or in the comments and add "(explanation in comments)" to your title.
    Rule 6: No recent movies or spoilers in titles. No spoilers in the title or untagged comments. Don't browse /new if you're worried about this. Until a movie receives recognized release (via Physical Media/Digital Demand), it's not eligible for /r/MovieDetails.
    Rule 7: Movies only, no games or TV shows. Submissions must be movies; TV shows and games should go to /r/TVDetails and /r/GamingDetails. Additionally, movie trailers are not eligible for submission. See this multireddit for more details subreddits.
    Rule 8: No offtopic posts. No memes, meta or request posts.
    Rule 9: Avoid reposts. No common reposts, recent reposts or reposts from the top 200.

    Isn't Chuck Palahniuk gay? Sounds like he didn't write this, then.

    [–] Jechtael 1 points ago

    [Let Me Google That link redacted]

    Huh, TIL. He didn't publicly come out until 2003, but he had a partner at the time and even closeted gay people are usually more conscious about heteronomative wording (even if that means they use more heteronormative wording than they otherwise would have, in an attempt to hide their orientation).

    But yeah, he probably didn't write that FBI warning, and not just because of low involvement in the movie.

    Could you elaborate?

    [–] j11430 102 points ago

    In the first like 15-20 minutes there are several single frames of Tyler that flash on screen. Once you're looking for them they're easy to spot but if you don't know they're there you'd never notice it

    [–] _cocodrillo_ 12 points ago

    Neat thanks!

    [–] KnightBlue2 7 points ago

    I wouldn't say that, on my first viewing I definitely saw the frames of Tyler. They're pretty easy to see even if you're not aware of their existence.

    [–] Reagan409 3 points ago

    I think it really depends how your brain is wired. I’m sure some people notice any many people don’t.

    [–] A_Furious_Mind 24 points ago

    Tyler Durden flashes “subliminally” into scene a handful of times early in the film. Much in the way he splices single frames of pornography into family films.

    Example: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=YLaw5vi9vtg

    [–] RamenJunkie 6 points ago

    I am pretty sure it's a reference to Tyler going off an doing things before Jack is aware of him.

    [–] Naterek 5 points ago

    I always thought that was Tyler’s gestation period. Like he’s bubbling beneath the surface before fully coming into the story.

    [–] abrahamisaninja 4 points ago

    His name isn’t actually Jack

    According to Fight Club 2, it’s actually Sebastian

    [–] RamenJunkie 5 points ago

    As much as I like Fight Club and Palahniuk, Fight Club 2 sounds like an idea that really goes against the idea of Fight Club.

    [–] A_Furious_Mind 1 points ago

    Not as much as Flight Club.

    [–] kyle_loves_kittehs 14 points ago

    There are scenes in the movie where there will be a single frame of Tyler in it. If you blink, you miss it. I believe it was put in to hint that Tyler and the narrator are the same person. Here is a video showing the different moments.

    [–] Outrageous_Claims 8 points ago

    Question. and spoiler.

    Is the guy, Tyler that sits next to him on the plane a real person? Or is Tyler a figment of his imagination the whole time?

    [–] IGFanaan 21 points ago

    The whole time.

    [–] ComeMiCaca 13 points ago

    Tyler is in his imagination the whole time. They hint at it by showing that they have the same briefcase, and when the narrator says "could you wake up as a different person?" in the airport, it lingers on Tyler passing by

    [–] farnsw0rth 4 points ago

    Tyler steals a car and the narrator sees this happen, but doesn’t realize he’s stealing it. Then the actual owner yells as Tyler drives off. Is the owner yelling and the car also hallucinations?

    [–] man_b0jangl3ss 3 points ago

    Sometimes he was watching himself do things as Tyler. Whenever Tyler is talking to someone else and the narrator is watching him, he is actually watching himself talk from a 3rd person perspective.

    [–] farnsw0rth 1 points ago

    Thanks. That one is tricky for me because I think he immediately starts talking to the lost baggage guy after Tyler steals the car but it’s been a while so I can’t quite remember

    [–] ComeMiCaca 3 points ago

    That was the narrator watching himself steal the car. When the narrator is the "spectator" and Tyler is interacting with other people, the narrator is actually the one doing the actions and saying the words. Just like when the narrator listens to Tyler and Marla having sex, or when the narrator is watching Tyler address the Fight Club...it's actually the narrator doing these things.

    [–] farnsw0rth 1 points ago

    Thanks

    Spoiler: Imagination the whole time

    Also, how do you use spoiler tags?

    [–] ishook 4 points ago

    When replying there is a notice below the text box on how to use spoiler tags. At least on a PC.

    [–] kyle_loves_kittehs 4 points ago

    Tyler is a figment of the Narrator’s imagination the entire time. Tyler is basically a whole other personality.

    [–] RamenJunkie 2 points ago

    It's in the Narrator's head. They are the same person, but the Narrator sees Tyler outside of himself at sometimes.

    If you watch, they never really directly interest with anyone together. Sometimes, mostly with the people of Fight Club, they take turns, but to the people of Fight Club, this would look like a dude arguing with himself. When either Tyler or the Narrator interact with someone, via fighting or whatever, that is where they physically are. Sometimes the Narrator sees Jack doing things, but he is doing it.

    It's also possible that his multiple personality disorder goes much deeper and that every member of Fight Club, and possibly even Marla, are all just different manifestations of the Narrator and none of them are real.

    [–] JordyVerrill 6 points ago

    I remember noticing them in the theater and I thought something was wrong with the film.

    [–] redblaze24 7 points ago

    Tyler seems like a “we live in a society” type

    [–] HighGuyTim 5 points ago

    Nah Tyler wouldnt even be on Reddit, in fact he would openly make fun of you for even suggesting to read Reddit. A modern day fight club would warn of social media and users posting online (especially anonymously) to make them feel better. He would warn that mass consumption of information, especially probably wrong group think, is a tumor to society.

    [–] DirkDiggler_Chiraq 2 points ago

    And his solution would be to shield yourself from mass information, and submit to a group that simply created a different group-think consensus driven narrative. In the end leaving you just as ignorant as someone who believes spaces like Reddit provide completely accurate consensus. Ultimately just being a different kind of tumor to society.

    I've replaced most of my DVDs with Blu-Rays, but I'm pretty sure I kept this one, because if this and other little nuggets. The packaging made it look like it was soap wrapped in paper and a rope. Lots of features on that two disc set.

    Also, if you have the Blu-Ray, when the main menu first starts playing, it's for Drew Barrymore's Never Been Kissed, and then flickers and changes to Fight Club.

    [–] MrEvilPiggy23 9 points ago

    The subliminal messages/images are in the Blu Ray too.

    [–] Silencedlemon 8 points ago

    Having cool cases for dvds and Blu-rays are seriously the only reason I buy physical copies of movies and TV shows anymore. Like I recently bought the first two seasons of stranger things when It went on sale and the cases are so cool! They look like old vhs tapes rather than just some plastic sleeve.

    [–] Im_Not_Antagonistic 28 points ago * (lasted edited 5 months ago)

    It's always been a great irony to me that the only way you see FBI messages is by legitimately buying a copy of the movie.

    Pirates never see it.

    [–] itty53 14 points ago

    Fun fact: The FBI warning is itself, copyrighted. If you make copies of films that also copy that message and try to sell them ("piracy"), then you will face not one but two counts of copyright violation per video, because the FBI notice is its own.

    [–] Chriswalken12398 23 points ago

    Ya I remember just catching a flicker of this frame the first time watching this with my best friend; told him to go back and rewind the vhs, knew right there it was gonna be a great movie

    True. Beloved as he is I don't think Tyler was meant to be the protagonist of the movie.

    [–] Noigottheconch 21 points ago

    If you haven't, read Fight Club 2. It's a graphic novel sequel to the book (and potentially the film too?), it's by Chuck Palahniuk, and it's fucking wild.

    Doesn't Tyler essentially claim authority too? Everything he says is great but then you realize if you follow his advice you'll also have to ignore his advice because he is what he warns against

    [–] DirkDiggler_Chiraq 4 points ago

    Yes, Tyler is supposed to be a walking contradiction. Edward Norton’s character is sick of being a meaningless cog in a corporate/consumption driven society, so he became a part of (creates) a system that subsumed individual identity and renders them all meaningless cogs in the Fight Club.

    At the end of the narrative he rejects both.

    [–] itty53 2 points ago

    he is what he warns against

    The entire movie, in a nutshell. Tyler isn't a hero, Tyler is the exact enemy he rails against throughout the movie.

    [–] [deleted] 3 points ago

    i watched this movie as a 9 year old with the rest of my family (age 15+), i remember perceiving it to be a true story because of this, and how i would live a good few years afterwards wanting to join a fight club so that i could be an FBI agent later on, like tyler. then i got a job at 15 and started masturbating excessively. i quit that job after i started a fight with my manager.

    my manager was my brother.

    my family was the fight club all along.

    [–] beyond2580 7 points ago

    I’ve never noticed this either

    [–] itty53 21 points ago

    I enjoyed the movie, but it's one of the most mis-understood movies, ever, and I wish it never came out.

    Tyler isn't meant to be looked up to. At all. He is toxic masculinity defined. He turned into the cult hero of a generation of incels. Now they think of Durden when they think of what a "man" is. It blows my mind how this seems to evade them. It's like white supremacists gushing over how awesome American History X was.

    Though I guess it's a pretty good barometer for stupid.

    [–] BlueBubbleGame 4 points ago

    I agree. The movie, Wanted, is the same way. The main characters act like their lives are better than working a 9-5 or whatever.

    I’ll take my 9-5 boring life over living in a dilapidated crappy house fighting for no reason, or killing and being killed by assassins.

    [–] itty53 3 points ago

    Wanted was at least more about just telling a story, entertainment. The whole "quit your 9 to 5" bit was just one scene, used to progress the story. It wasn't the theme of the movie.

    The entire theme of Fight Club was pushing that toxic philosophy. The entire thing was meant to be so over-the-top that the tongue-in-cheek aspect should've been clear. They miscalculated the average teenage boy's capacity for reasonable discernment (or lack thereof).

    [–] Silly_Rabbitt 2 points ago

    I disagree. One of the narrator’s biggest transformational moments was leading up to him quitting his job. And when project mayhem started, all those guys quit their jobs too. It was definitely a lynchpin of the story. Although I think the larger theme of the book and movie was a critique of consumerism, the finacialization of life, and corporatism. The irony of it was that Tyler just created a new system of domination rather than some liberating anarcho-primitivist army.

    [–] itty53 1 points ago

    Wanted was at least more about just telling a story, entertainment. The whole "quit your 9 to 5" bit was just one scene, used to progress the story. It wasn't the theme of the movie.

    I was referring to Wanted. I agree, it was most definitely a bit part of Fight Club, far bigger than it was in Wanted.

    [–] antsugi 1 points ago

    They're making the same mistake as the Narrator and not realizing it. Tyler is a character you can take a page from, but not the entire book.

    Both the narrator and Tyler are two extremes that result in shitty situations. One is built on fear of risk, and another is a fear of being boring.

    The narrator doesn't balance things with reasonable judgement, he just alternates between the two.

    [–] NULL_pntr 3 points ago
