Watch: An Alien's Guide to Understanding David Fincher's 'Fight Club'

“Welcome to Earthling Cinema, where we examine the last remaining artifacts of a once-proud culture and try to understand what human lives were like before the galactic civil war that destroyed their planet,” boasts host Garyx Wormuloid (Mark Schroeder). Thus begins the new YouTube series “Earthling Cinema.”

Featuring an alien anthropologist trying to piece together the human race by looking at popular movies, this comedy spoof of Turner Classic Movie programs blends a humorous satire of film criticism with real analysis to break down some of our most beloved films.

First up is David Fincher’s “Fight Club,” which Garyx sums up as “people punching each other,” and future episodes will take on “Pulp Fiction,” “2001: A Space Odyssey” and “Mean Girls.” Check out the video below:
