The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Confronting and refreshing

(Edit) 26/10/2010

I'd heard a lot about this movie, the book trilogy (which I had brought for my girlfriend) and was intrigued to finally see the movie.

Not usually one to watch movies in anything other than English, I quickly switched to the native Swedish and read the subtitles as the dubbing was too unnatural. And I was glad I did. My girlfriend and I were on the edge of our seats for most of the film, although at sometimes a little confronting (this is not a movie for the kids) it was a refreshing change from the normal formula of more-of-the-same that you get from Hollywood.

The plot keeps you guessing until right close to the very end, which in itself whilst not hugely unpredictable, was still satisfying.

I've not read the book, and probably won't now as I know the ending and the suspense is lost, however I'm eyeing the next two books in the series sitting on my book case. Hopefully the sequel movie arrives soon, else I may have to read them first!

An Education

Worth watching if its raining

(Edit) 26/10/2010

Overall not bad, the father character was quite entertaining and held my interest when it might otherwise have waned. The dim witted trophy girlfriend of one of the supporting characters was quite amusing too. However I felt unsatisfied at the end, the film had no real impact. In fact only a day later I am struggling to remember any impactful moments that have lasted in my memory.

Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy it, but it wasn't overly good, or overly bad. Just OK.

Dear John

Not worth the candle

(Edit) 26/10/2010

Bad acting, cheesy script & predictable screenplay, I cringed throughout the whole thing. My girlfriend usually laps these movies up, she was disappointed too. The ending left us both with a "what, that's it?!" feeling.

She was especially disappointed as The Notebook (also based on a book by Nicholas Sparks) was a great movie.

Don't bother, there are plenty of other great Romance Drama's out there.
