The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I thought it was very good. I have read the books and knew the story. The screenplay writer picked the high points from the novel and wove them into the movie so that if there are sequels, the threads to Elisabet's back story were introduced in the movie.

I love Jeff Goldblum movies. I didn't care for the fly though (to gross LOL I prefer the original and I don't even want to talk about the 2nd one with Eric Stoltz BRRR). One of my favorite Jeff roles was in Vibes. Has anyone seen that? Cindy Lauper and Peter Falk were in it. I love Jeff's quirkiness. Another fav is Independence Day

I went to the movies to see it also, CWS. I have not read the book. While I thought the story and the acting were excellent, the two rape scenes disturbed me to the point of physical and emotional nausea, like nothing I've ever seen before, and I don't shock all that easily.
If anyone has the slightest thought of seeing this movie with a youngster thinking the R rating is tame.....think again. The scenes could have been dealt with effectively in a more creative and less graphic way. It really makes me wonder why these film makers can't be more creative and less gross. Grrrr....

The scenes were equally disturbing in the book, Kayelle. One reason I do not want to see the movie.

Saw Unknown last nigh. I like Liam Neeson, so pretty much anything he is in I will like.

I had hoped that the rape scene and the scene where she gets her revenge, would be omitted. I found the graphic description of it in the book more disturbing. However, to fill in the back story should the other two books be made into English movies, the guardian had to be included and his role in the whole plot as to why she was institutionalized and how this was acccomplished.
