    The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

    ★★★★

    One of the first few blurays I purchased back in 2009-2010, tonight I decided to give this a spin for the second time. This is still my preferred film version of the story, having read the novel as well. I will have to rewatch Fincher’s adaptation, but from what I can recall, his style didn’t jive with me due to his fast paced editing and heavy handed cinematography.

    The Fear

    ★★★

    A quaint mid 90s ensemble horror film, without the budget for exciting cinematography and some subpar writing, it gets the job done well enough. A psychology minor attempts to understand fear a little better with the help of a group of volunteers from all walks of life.

    The totem wooden man featured prominently on the poster art, enjoys a more enigmatic presence in this film. Those hoping for a psychopathic wooden murdering machine will be disappointed to know that aspect…
