    Was there anyone who didn’t bother to see The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo? Directed by Niels Arden Oplev, the adaptation of the first book in Stieg Larsson’s Millennium (subsequently referred to as simply Dragon Tattoo) trilogy is a wicked cool Swedish import (the American remake is already being filmed by David Fincher). Noomi Rapace makes a stunning debut as iconic Lisbeth Salander, a Goth, bi-sexual computer hacker with the past of a deeply troubled teen. When journalist Mikel Blomkvist…

    These movies aren't going to be the easiest movies for a lot of people to watch: it's a foreign language film, it's a film dealing realistically with violence against women, and it's not exactly full of laughs. But boy these are well made and Noomi Rapace is a revelation.

    Gripping murder mystery story with some strange but interesting characters. Really enjoy the story but some hard to watch scenes.

    I've seen this film several times and think it's stronger than the Fincher version. Much of it is actually not groundbreaking in terms of execution, but the film's innovation is in how it makes computers such an essential tool for communicating and staging suspense. Few films before this looked this accurate in depicting an OS on screen, and it's more effective for it.

    But for coming out in 2009, the film is ahead of its time in terms of understanding…

    Having just finished reading the book trilogy, I was finally ready to watch the movies. Even though I read the first book months ago, I held off watching its movie adaptation until I'd finished all the books for two reasons: a) I'm pedantic, and b) I thought this might include the rare case of foreshadowing further installments in the trilogy that I wouldn't have read yet (and I was right).

    Watching a book turn into a movie is almost always…

    The Fincher version was better.

    Dark, intense, and very very creepy.

    After I finish watching the sequels, I'm gonna have to see about picking up the books.
