The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Went out with the family last night to see the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo remake with Daniel Craig. Starring Daniel Craig, I mean; he didn’t go with us to see the movie. I suppose he could have been there, but it was dark, and I didn’t hear anyone saying, oh look, Daniel Craig!

We all liked the movie. I had been planning to dislike it because i dislike the idea of Hollywood remaking foreign films. But I thought Fincher did an okay job, and the fact that everyone was a little better-looking in this one didn’t irritate me as much as I had planned, because visually it was a little better-looking in most respects, I thought, and the fact that they changed the ending didn’t bug me, and Craig acted better than I had planned, and so on.

What loved most was the music. The entire soundtrack was great, IMO, from the opening credits with the Led Zeppelin cover, to the end. My favorite moment was {SPOILER} the abbatoir scene where the killer has the journalist trussed up and is preparing to butcher him, and he plays Enya while he’s doing it. The rest of the soundtrack being NIN-style Trent Reznor stuff.
Anyhow. Fun night out.

    Thanks for the review Mig.I adore Michael Nyqvist, felt the original was superb, and planned to pass on the remake but the Enya reference is intriguing. Must check it out.

  2. How fun if Daniel Craig did go with you to the movies. Maybe you should invite him along…
