The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (Trailer)
I might be in the minority on this, but the trailer is just... okay — cool music though. It's going to be incredibly difficult to meet the standards set by the Swedish film and Noomi Rapace's fantastic performance. *sigh* I don't why this film was remade. Okay, I know why, but still... Daniel Craig is an excellent choice for Blomkvist, but I'm not sold on Rooney Mara as Lisbeth. We barely see her in the trailer. Hmmm. Do yourself a favor, watch the original. You'll thank me later.
Speaking of the Swedish films, I was somewhat disappointed with The Girl Who Played With Fire. Felt like one of the most unnecessary sequels ever (which sounds like a good topic for a future post). Ridiculous coincidences, a nonsensical plot and some forced action sequences — borderline cartoony at times. Sometimes the more we learn about a character with a mysterious background, the less interesting they become. I'm still a fan of the protagonist, so I'll check out The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest at some point in the near future.
