Haven't seen the movie but I've read the book, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and loved it. It's part of a trilogy and, as far as I'm concerned, all are great.

I don't know if I'd classify the story as racy, but it does have it's somewhat unusual moments. The "girl" is, to me, very fascinating. She doesn't think like the rest of us. You do have to have an open mind, though, when it comes to any of the three books. I loved them anyway and was sad to learn that the author died before he wrote any more stories with the characters. He was very talented.

I have decided to NOT see the movie, I love Daniel Craig, but I just can't see him as Blomquist. Also, I love the books as written, I'm afraid I would not like a mangled script.

that was back before megaplexes, when theaters were single, huge screens in a gigantic room replete with balconies. now movie theaters are getting closer to peep shows, or watching a movie in a long, descending hallway.
I worked at a movie theater when it came out also. WOW I hated walking the house when Rocky Horror was playing!!

I watched Rise of the Planet of the Apes, It was fairly good. I'd recommend it.

I watche a movie on tv, I think it was called A Man in the Forrest, Or Left in the Forrest but it was good. It was on late and I fell asleep on it. I hate I didn't see the ending. But it was about a hunter, i think he was a hunter, that was maulded by an animal and left for dead by his own people.

I also watched a movie called Equilibrium. I liked it ok. I'd recommend it. It had some unexpectant turns in it..

Last night we watched "Daleks - Invasion Earth 2150 AD". It is a Dr. Who movie with Peter Cushing made in 1966.

Last night was Frenzy, an old Alfred Hitchcock film. Cracking good! When it was over, the plain old TV stuff was such a letdown.

Watched The Other Guys last night. Kinda funny. Generally like Whalberg & Farrel is good as long as he's not the only focus in the movie. No regrets.

We need to talk about kevin- I was very moved by this film. I didn't read the book prior to seeing the film but it was very well made in my opinion.
