    Re: What was the most recent movie I've watched? (Part 2)

    Girl with the Dragon Tatoo.

    Pretty much followed the book, some things were left out/altered, my guess is they thought the movie long enough at 2:40 already, but nothing that greatly changed the story line from the book. I never saw the original films, but I enjoyed this movie very much, as much as I enjoyed the book, which is pretty rare.

    Couple observations w/o giving anything away:

    I thought they did a good job of making Lisbeth look like a boy at times, as is often mentioned in the book, w/o making it obvious that they were making her look like a boy.

    I was courious what kind of credit Plague would get, since in his couple of scences, he was never referred to by name. I didn't know if they'd list him by the name in the book, or if they'd list him as "hacker boy #1" or whatever. They listed him by plague.

    I wished they dealved into Lisbeth's background a little more to set up the 2nd movie, the way the book did, but I imagine its more important for the 2nd movie, and the movie was already plenty long. Had to cut something, I could see why this was left out, but I would have sat another 5-10 minutes to introduce that bit a little.

    I think I we encounted just about all the movie go-er annoyances however. We had "open up cell phone and check text message guy/girl" which escalated to another level as they started comparing texts with the person next to them. We had overly nasal guy behind us, how rather than blowing his nose felt the need to suck in his flem every 10 minutes. We had the "I most comment on all the small things" person next to us, who felt the need to comment that 2nd time they showed lisbeth eating a "happy meal" comment, "oh she must like McDonalds" (just 1 of many examples) as if that had any importance to the story, other than what MdDonald's paid the produce to get the spot. I guess Billy's Pan Pizza couldn't come up w/ the same amount of coin. I had "must bump into the back of my seat 20X during the movie" person behind me, despite being in a stadium style theater w/ a ton of leg room. Its little wonder (aside from the 3.5 year old kid) why we attend movies so infrequently anymore.

    Coincidently, finished up the 3rd book last night, looking forward to the next 2 movies.

    The one in Australia is much earlier in the series. The one in Okinawa is what I'm referring to and it's the last episode before the war ends.

    Just saw this last night and must say that I was pleasantly surprised. They take some libertys with some aspects (pretty sure they would never let guys fight multiple times in one night anymore) but I would definetly recommend it. I will admit that I had a nice chuckle at United States gold medalist Kurt Angle playing the feared Russian.
    During my 18 years I came to bat almost 10,000 times. I struck out about 1,700 times and walked maybe 1,800 times. You figure a ballplayer will average about 500 at bats a season. That means I played seven years without ever hitting the ball. ~Mickey Mantle, 1970

    While they won't let guys fight multiple times in one night anymore, they used to and it wasn't that long ago. The first UFC event was like that and it took place in November 93. A few more were also like that, but I don't remember the last one that was like that, though research shows December 94 being the last one I can track.

    Edit: found one from 95 as well.

    The daughter and I went to see Dark Shadows last night. What a waste of 2 hrs and simply one S-T-U-P-I-D movie. There's no rhythm to this movie at all. Burton's visuals were good, but you need far more then that - like a good story - to make a good movie. We both found it boring, dull, and any efforts at comedy fell flat IMO.

    I'm not the biggest Depp (or Burton) fan in the world, though they did have some good collaborations earlier on, but they need to take a break in their "relationship" IMO.

    Watched"Ned Kelly" with the wife last night. Great cast (Heath ledger, Geoffrey Rush, Orlando Bloom) but the story was convoluted and relied to much on the viewers knowledge of the historical Ned Kelly. Couple this with a glacial pace and you have one great nap awaiting.
    Witty signature.

    Ditto the g.f. And I saw this today couldn't agree more. it seemed like if Burton couldn't decide what kind of movie to make .comedy or a spoof or what either way it didn't work.

    Wow! They actually did a re-make of the original one made back in 1970 and starring Mick Jagger?

    I saw The Dictator last week.

    And with that, I am closing this thread. Please feel free to start a new one.
