The Girl with the Dragon tattoo
It's a damn good movie, one of the best I've seen in quite awhile...recommended to fellow WW'ers.

Watch the Euro version for full effect.

The trailers look great. I want to see it with the Mrs. Last night, we went to see the new Sherlock Holmes movie with my family. Great movie. Better than the first!

I really liked the movie. I had no idea what to expect since I have not read the book or seen the Euro Version. It is for sure one of the best movies Ive seen in a long time.

The book was great. Hopefully the movie doesn't disappoint.

The book was good...slow start, but ended up being pretty good. I am going to try and see the movie this weekend and it sounds like it won't disappoint

I agree with Sean. There are three of these Euro movies in the series. They were all pretty decent.

Yeah the book was slow starting, didn't get into it until 80 pages or so, then I was hooked and read all three. Can't wait to go see the movie. Anyone know if they're planning to do all 3?

Saw the movie. It was good and brutal. Really loved the chick.

tings00 01-02-2012 8:42 PM

I couldnt make it to the 80 page mark of the book before going on to something else that kept my attention a little better. Maybe i should give it another shot. Should I read the book then see the movie or am I good to watch the movie in the mean time?

Read the books!!! They were so good. The movie is good.... but nothing like a good book. Its hard to get through the first half of the first book, but the next 2 you will fly through... then you will have withdrawal. Those books started me reading fiction again.

misteve 01-04-2012 1:07 PM

Went and saw it last night, absolutely loved it! Having read the books nothing stuck out to me that was left out. I thought they covered everything very well, and Daniel Craig and Salander were both amazing and perfect in their roles IMO. I forgot how the book left you hanging until last night, can't wait for the next, it made me want to re-read the book!

Good to know the books are so great. I just got a Nook with all three books in the series for Christmas and I'll be starting them after I finish The Hunger Games.

jcfox00 01-06-2012 6:51 PM

Just a warning, it is very graphic! Did not expect it and had no research before seeing it.

bruizza 01-06-2012 10:36 PM

Just got home from seeing this movie and it was great. I haven't read any of the books but I'm in the process of getting them now.

wakeboardingdad 01-07-2012 10:35 PM

There's a russian version, made in 2009, on Netflix now - for those who don't mind reading subtitles and cannot get to the movies.

wakeboardingdad 01-08-2012 2:10 PM

Well, I'm nursing a bum shoulder, so last night and today I watched the orginal movie on Netflix. It was good, full of twists and with an underestimated ending. It'll be interesting seeing the remake in english.

jarrod 01-09-2012 8:19 AM

I thought the move was slow. I had a hard time staying awake.

Sorry, I was wrong. I guess this was actually the version everyone was calling Euro since it is Swedish. I do not know my languages, but it did sound like Russian. I watched the Girl Who Played with Fire last night and this AM. It was pretty good but did drag in a few places.
