Despite its cult popularity, it took more than a decade before I saw “Fight Club.” I somewhat enjoyed it, but the delay meant two things: I already knew the spoiler (Edward Norton and Brad Pitt are the same person with a split personality – sorry) and I had a decade’s worth of historical perspective. Thus, two other things are obvious: Osama Bin Laden borrowed his Sept. 11, 2001, plot from this 1999 movie’s climax (buildings housing worldwide financial information are blown up) and (in perhaps an even worse development for society) Tyler Durden is responsible for the mixed martial arts fad.
