    ★★★★½ Rewatched by violetti 20 May, 2015 1

    Vártam azt az időt, amikor már nem emlékszem a filmre, így elkezdhetem olvasni a könyvet, hogy aztán újra megnézhessem a filmet (lehet a svéddel is újrázok). Igazából annyira jó volt a könyv, hogy nem bírtam magammal és párhuzamosan néztem a filmet is hozzá, ami természetesen szintén nagyon király, így nehezemre esett többször is félbehagyni mert még nem tartottam ott az olvasásban. A helyzet az, hogy David Finchernek nagyon mennek a thrillerek, bár a drámák is, a legjobb hogy egyenletes színvonalat…

    Gostei da direção e das escolhas que o Fincher fez, mas a versão original, sueca/dinamarquesa, ainda é melhor em quase todos os aspectos, mas principalmente na fotografia.

    I can't believe I went more than 12 months without seeing this. Everything about Dragon Tattoo is perfect. I wouldn't change anything. Still holding out hope for a sequel, but only if David Fincher's on board.

    Disappointing. I would argue that the movie doesn't actually start until more than an hour in. Everything that happens before that point could've been condensed to at least 30 minutes, maybe less. Not to mention, the two leads have almost nothing to do with each other during that entire first hour. After that, there are basically two endings stacked on top of each other. The first is severely anticlimactic, and the second is drawn out way too long. In short,…

    So, this was a bit more stylish and more toned down at the same time (by which I mean, if you were to choose which one to go see with your mom, I'd recommend this one.)

    Also think Bjurman was way ickier in the foreign. Something about the old man mustache. Blech.

    I like Rapace a little bit more, too. She's just a bit more endearingly awkward than Mara.

    Highlights here are the music (though I was confused during the…

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This is something I have always wanted to try and hopefully will be a recurring thing for me in the future. This will be the first in a series of reviews comparing a foreign movie to its American remake. Today we will be comparing the Swedish and American adaptations of heart pounding novel by Stieg Larsson, “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo”

    Before we begin, I would just like to state that for once, I actually read the freaking book…

    This is one of my very favorite Fincher films. Excellent acting by the whole cast but especially Rooney Mara. This film is very dark which makes it very fitting as an entry in Fincher's filmography. The moody score sets the tone along with the bleak winter backdrop on the Vanger family island. I love murder mysteries and the nice thing about this one in particular is that it is a character piece as well. It almost strikes me as a…

    OK, so I really don't get it! Why did Americans need to remake an already successful Swedish film (Män som hatar kvinnor, 2009) without, however, adapting it to American reality? Why did they need to shoot it in Sweden? Why did they need to have American actors play the Swedes, who speak in English (!), and really badly, for that matter, since they sound like Russians speaking English, and not like Swedes? Why? So that they honor the original? Or…

    Oh. My. God.

    Finally got around to watching this movie. David Fincher is one of my favorite directors, so finally getting around to seeing this film, I was very excited.

    I have not seen the original film nor have I read the book but I was very interested and I was very compelled by the story and it got me hooked from the second it started until the second it was over. There was so much to the film, so…

    With a mesmerizing screenplay and masterful performace from Rooney Mara, "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" is an engrossing, brilliant film, and perhaps David Fincher's swan song. It also has the best score of all time in my opinion, so that's a plus.
