Here's something weird ... I got the "Girl with the dragon tattoo" soundtrack (because! Trent Reznor!) and before that I had no intentions to watch the movie ... I read the book, I saw the Swedish movie, I don't like to support Hollywood's lack or original ideas ...

But now I'm wondering how the music will work in the movie and I might end up watching it after all. There aren't a lot of movies I'm looking forward to anyway (see comment above, the one about the lack of original ideas ...). We're going to watch the new Sherlock Holmes movie on Saturday though. I can't quite take it seriously (as a Sherlock Holmes adaptation, that is) but it will be fun. Talking about fun .. fun fact - whoever translated the movie title to German turned "A game of shadows" into "Game in the shadows" ... apparently, language skills are not required for the job.

Also, I have yet another YA literature burnout. I started quite a few books and then decided that none of them is worth my time. With authors trying to rewrite Twilight for the xth time this can hardly be blamed on me though, can it? I need to rearrange my "to read" pile and put everything with a female main character, supernatural elements and relationships in geometrical shapes to the very bottom.

i liked the Swedish movies because they were swedish movies...i find european cinema to be far more artistic (less in your face, less obvious, treats the watcher like an adult who can think for themselves) than what we (or I) normally watch, and the Girl trilogy kept me entertained for this very reason

i thought the stories mildly interesting, but nothing i would want to read or watch again...so i just groaned when hollywood said they will americanise it...UNTIL i read Daniel Craig would be in it

GTFO of my way when Daniel Craig is on the screen!!! i even watched Cowboys and Aliens, ALL OF IT, just to look at him...

DOES
IT

ME

I want to watch Cowboys and Aliens because it seems to be so odd ... but I missed it when it was in theatres.
