Do it, they're amazing. I was halfway through the first one before I got hooked. The last hundred pages or so I flat out told my boyfriend not to speak to me until I was done. I read 3/4 of the second book in one sitting. I won't derail this thread by going on about the merits of these books for ages, but they really are excellent.

I would recommend reading the books first, all of them. They hint at some stuff that happens in the second book in this movie, and I wouldn't want that to be spoiled for you.

Okay sounds like a plan. I imagine it'll be out of theaters by the time I get done with the books, but I can always rent them.

It's already on DVD. It would have been cheaper for me to just buy the DVD, I'm not really sure why I insisted on seeing it in the theater. :roll: I think it will do just as well on the small screen.

It's on Netflix for sure.

I actually had to check if we had Netflix in Canada. And we don't. Coming this fall however! ;)

Plenty of rental stores around though.

However, Invis had heard how good the movie was, and after having looked into the plot, I've agreed to go see it, even though I tend to skip Leo movies. (Seeing it this weekend.)

I love Gladiator, and I love Russel Crowe movies in general. Gladiator had an interesting moment for me though, after having seen it a couple dozen times, when I realized that they showed them using saddles with stirrups and fighting from horseback.

It was a total nerd moment - I thought to myself "but they didn't even HAVE stirrups then, nor did they actually fight from horseback" and it made the movie a little less awesome because of it.

It's an anachronism, but SFW! It made for an entertaining movie and it's not like they gave the Centurions M-16s.

It was actually really great. They did a good job of adapting the book (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) which is a rare thing. Of course a few minor things were changed and two things that was somewhat significant but overall they kept the general tone and atmosphere of the book. The sequel is already playing at the same theater so I plan to go see it next week. I am a bit scared to see what will happen when they make an American version of the film next year.

My boyfriend enjoyed it as well. I was kind of worried he'd fall asleep but he got into it despite the subtitles. To quote him "It was a hell of a lot better than that last movie." He actually flat out hated Inception.

Meh, I don't see that at all. I loved the book, all three of them even, and I find that while the movies might work on their own as such, they are really quite poor adaptations of the amazing books. Everytime I hear someone praise the movie(s) with really high words, I usually ask if they've read the book and 90% of them say no. Kudos to the chick playing Salander though, she does a really good job. But for me that was about the extent of liking the movies, having read the books first.

Saw Inception. Wasn't overly impressed. The concept was neat, but it actually seemed underdeveloped (which is odd because quite a bit actually happened in the movie). The "twists" seemed forced and completely expected. The ending was predictable. (And I'm not one who can usually guess the ending of a movie, no matter how obvious it is.) The whole "original inception" was too easy to guess as soon as it was mentioned. There was no "shock" in the movie. The biggest shock I got was jolting out of my seat during a sudden increase in music.

And I cannot escape how much Leonardo DiCaprio annoys the shit out of me. He's gotten older, from what I can see, and he does carry a more mature sense to acting I find, but he's still completely vile to me.

I support original non-remakes, still probably in my eyes the best original film of the summer.
