alright, so the girl with the dragon tattoo. the movie itself was alright, but i found the scenes without lisbeth salander to be kind of boring. i am so totally in love with her character, who is at the same time fierce and vulnerable. if rooney mara doesn't win an oscar for her portrayal, something is amiss. she was pretty fearless in that role, and i found her rather remarkable. i had put off watching it because i heard it was incredibly disturbing and someone mentioned they had to leave the theatre during a scene, but i was unfazed, probably because she got her revenge in the end. anyway, i'd recommend the movie for the characters of lisbeth and mikael alone. i really want to pick up the second book now.
I've been mean to see this version of it. I actually just finished watching all 3 movies on netflix (the original versions) I thought they were pretty well done. I wish I would have read the other two books before I watched these films. But I just couldn't resist I wanted to watch to see how it ended.
Plus I love David Fincher's style so that makes me wanna see it even more. I'm not to sure if it is still out in theaters here. I'll have to look.
