Welcome to Gaia! ::

Anyone seen David Fincher's new film? He's gone back into the dark psyche he's known best for, with the police procedural taking on the widely acclaimed Girl With the Dragon Tattoo book.
I definitely thought it blew away the original film adaption, but some of the way we the audience learn of plot points and revelations felt a bit off, and the emotional payoff with the main climax I felt was done better in the original movie. I don't think I'll be able to think of Enya's "Oronico Flow" in the same way again

Im a huuuuuge fan of David Fincher, especially Se7en, The Game, Zodiac, Fight Club and Benjamin Button. Even with the use of digital video he's able to get a very 35mm film look.

Also, once again Trent Reznor delivers an amazing soundtrack
I haven't seen it yet but I want to see it so badly!!! Sadly, I'll probably have to wait 'til it comes out on DVD because my boyfriend isn't a fan after watching the Swedish version.

Was it worth watching?

Oh a zillion times better than the original version. I'd say go on your own. Even if friends aren't interested in a particular movie, I'll just go by myself
I'm definitely going to go see it, it looks really good! I hope it stays true to the book.
Great movie.

Also, Rooney Mara has a PHENOMENAL body, especially her tits.

I enjoyed it a great deal over the Swedish version. And no, not because I didn't have to read subtitles, but I generally felt it was overall more well done. I think some people are just way too hardcore elitist to even give the movie a chance.

Sadly, no form of transport due to my car not working and the closest movie theater being in Reno, 30 minutes away on freeways, not roads with buses.

But I am happy to say I'll be seeing it very very soon. I finally convinced my boyfriend to give it a chance lol I'm so excited!!! Lol
Is it like a squeal to The Girl who kicked the Hornets nest?

Oh good! It's seriously good. I mean its David Fincher, the visionary mind behind Se7en, Fight Club and Zodiac.

Eep, Im sorry! I was just in Reno last month for a couple days...couldnt imagine how people voluntarily live there...seems so depressing sad

I'm very excited to see it lol I must admit that I've only seen Se7en. My boyfriend says I wouldn't get/like Fight Club and his mom was in the FBI and worked the actual Zodiac case and he doesn't like watching that at all ... anyways ... I know they are all great movies though and I look forward to seeing The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

Yeah, I agree! I'd never want to live in Reno, either. But I live in Lake Tahoe (specifically Tahoe City) and Reno is the only place close to me with big stores and movie theaters and malls. Scaramento is 2hrs away and more of a once every other month trip. I miss my hometown Portland, Oregon, though.
I haven't seen the English or the Swedish version of the film yet.

For those who have seen both, which one would you recommend to watch first?

It's actually based off of the first book of the series - the three being The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl who Played with Fire, and then The Girl who Kicked the Hornet's Nest.

I thought it was great, very well done. I may have ruined the suspense for myself, having read the book already, but it was very true! Rooney Mara was perfect. But it did ruin Enya forever.

Also, I thought the opening credit sequence kicked a**! So cool.

I thought the movie was great. I was debating whether I should see it before I had finished the book, but putting a face to the characters' names actually made finishing the book more enjoyable.
And the opening sequence was totally amazing.
i wanna see it!

i always thought it was the lamest thing ever because i've only seen that title on a book. but the commercial for the movie looks really good! now i'm kinda excited for it!

Oh Tahoe is pretty nice, but I can kind of see how it's easy for people to get bored. Whoah, you were in Portland? I always half jokingly say Portland is my true home even though I've never been, just people say I'd love it because of the art/quirky stuff I'm into. What brought you to Tahoe from there? Aw, yeah Sacramento...ugh. I don't have too much good things to say about that place.

Whoah, you've never seen Fight Club? You should decide what films you want to see smile
