All three of the Swedish "The Girl Who.." series movies are now available on DVD (and streaming Netflix!)..
Watch them in order, and as in the books - the middle one is a transition between the first and third.. so it's a bit slow (and puzzling in spots.)
I saw The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo and The Girl Who Played with Fire in the movies - loved the first, was somewhat disappointed in the 2nd (transition one.)
Then I saw The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest on DVD and it all came together. Just like the books :)
I dread the US remake(s).. I think I'll just not see them.
Good stuff - shame that Stieg Larsson isn't with us to offer us more great reading.
Best $1 you will spend at Red Box. Well know actors, sweet story.
Will Hachiko make me cry? I love good dog :dog stories, but I guess I've been through the reality of losing my best friend too many times - I almost can't watch the sad ones.
Nobody's Fool is an excellent movie with
Philip Seymour Hoffman
Top notch entertainment. Trailer and more info [url]http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0110684/[/url]
The Searchers ~ TCM
Just sat through the entire extended version of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Grew up on those books and while no movie is perfectly transformed into a movie, this is pretty much what my imagination figured it to be like and better.
The Straight Story
Great story about an unusual road trip ...

Went to see Trus Grit a couple of weeks ago...I loved it, my wife would probably have passed on it.
On the weekend, we went to see Unknown (Leam Neeson). One of the best suspence film I have EVER seen. If you like suspence films, do not miss this one.
All Quiet On The Western Front ~ TCM
Coming on in just a couple.
Deathwatch .......... a World War 1 horror film.
Secondhand Lions was a very pleasant surprise. Good family flick
has Micheal Caine,, strong English accents, makes for a deaf guy like me hard to understand
Best of all...IMHO...Shawshank Redemption. :clap
Just saw Battle: Los Angles. Lots of explosions and rapid camera cuts but it wasn't hokey like Independence Day and paced itself better than District 9. Honestly I don't see movies like I used to but my son had the night off and I was starting a long weekend so we had a boys night out. I'll take aliens over zombies any day.
