Do I Look Like A Ditchable Prom Date To You?

by Rainier on Dec. 20, 2011 @ 12:00 a.m. PST

Last night, we went to an advance screening of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and while the movie itself is not bad at all, if you've seen the original Swedish version, then this remake/adaptation is not really worth seeing. Daniel Craig is great and the rest of the cast all do a great job, but it all comes down to why there is a "remake" of a movie that's only a couple of years old. Staying true to the original, the movie it set in Sweden, same locations, but the balance is totally thrown off by English-speaking actors who try to mimic an accent.

In a few hours, we're heading to the airport for our overseas flight, so preparations are hectic. Making sure we don't forget anything, and crossing off all the chores on the checklist.
