Still need to see the third one first then I suppose I'll catch this one sometime on TV.

    Rant over sorry to poop on your parade.
    I absolutely agree with you. It's unnecessary. But I will go see anything David Fincher does because I love him.

    They stuck fairly well to the story. I haven't watched the uncut, 3 hour long versions yet. I assume those stick to the book a little more strongly.

    I agree.

    After having watched "Tattoo" tonight, I'm of the opinion that Fincher should do as many murder mysteries as possible.
    Can't argue that, either.

    I thought the remake was, for the most part, a better movie. On a technical level especially, but I was really kind of pleased with the way that Fincher and co. glossed over a lot of the minute detail of the Wanger family. It's really not essential to the plot and it dragged the original down a little bit, in my opinion. It was also very difficult to get through in the book (though the entire rest of the book was tits). I liked that the remake also included some bits that the theatrical cut of the Swedish film didn't have, like the scenes with Lisbeth's original guardian.

    Similarly, one of the issues I had with the Swedish movie was some of what happens during the investigation. I'd have to watch it again to come up with specifics, but there were a couple of instances where I thought they caught a break because of coincidences or there was a logic jump that was pushing it a little bit. Not enough to stop me from enjoying the movie, but enough to notice. I didn't really catch much of that in the remake.

    The one thing that was definitely not as good in the remake was Lisbeth. Rooney Mara did a very good job and she deserves whatever props she gets for her performance, but she doesn't have anywhere near the presence or charisma that Noomi Rapace has/had. It's a slightly different take, and that's cool, but comparisons are inevitable and she falls short there.

    And seeing as how, for me, Rapace is really what made the movies, it's hard for me to just say I liked the remake better. It's close.
    SirJW and NastiMarvasti like this.

    Saw it yesterday and enjoyed it. It's obviously similar to the original but visually it is significantly more detailed and stylized. Fincher did a bang up job.

    David Fincher Says 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' Has "Parallels" To 'Chinatown' | Filmmakers, Film Industry, Film Festivals, Awards & Movie Reviews | indieWIRE

    His attitude was to not be so precious with the source material. “When the writer of the book has a map of the family tree, you really have to do some pruning,” he laughs. “I always felt the Agatha Christie part was what you’d have to prune to get this to two and a half hours. Cecilia has one little moment, Anita has one moment. I think the locked door mystery is the ruse. So that, for me, was what was most comfortably jettisoned. My big concern going in, talking with Steve, [was] asking, what basket are you putting your eggs in? And he said, it has to be about the characters front and center, the characters Blomkvist came in contact with, the characters Lisbeth come in contact with.“

    ‘The Girl Who Played With Fire’ Still On Its Way | Geeks of Doom

    With David Fincher’s latest film, his take on The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, hitting to solid reviews despite a lackluster take at the box office, Sony is hellbent on making the entire Millennium Trilogy.



    The studio has announced that they will indeed be going forward with a big screen adaptation of the second book, The Girl Who Played With Fire. The film is set to bow in late 2013, and while it remains to be seen who will helm it, both Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig will be back in the fold.

    Fincher has said previously that he’d like to helm the sequels, but it still seems possible that they may tap another filmmaker. Personally, if Fincher is back, my excitement will be through the roof. I loved the first film, as it sat in the #10 spot for my Top 10 films of this past year, and hope that this could be just as stunning. Fingers are definitely crossed.

    Saw this today with no prior exposure to the series. Excellent movie. In my Top 10 for 2011. Walked-over to Best Buy afterwards and bought the CD.

    I like the idea of this movie, but I really think that Daniel Craig is a major *******! He's got a severe attitude problem. So, that stern constipated look that he has is truly there for a reason. He doesn't seem to be a good person in real life, so I'm reluctant to go watch any movies with him. That being said, I would probably watch this movie & ignore the fact that he's in it simply because I've seen the Swedish version & would like to compare the two films. I'm very partial to dark movies and this seems to be a movie that is just calling my name.

    Don't you mean Daniel Craig?

    Yes, thanks! I don't know how I confused the two. Daniel Craig looks like a major *******! TMZ tried to interview him a couple of times and he was a total douche-bag with them.
