I couldn't get through a hundred pages of the book, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but I enjoyed the hell out of the movie. I actually have high hopes for the American re-make (purely because of Fincher), but seriously wonder whether the darkness of the Swedish version will be preserved. I mean, are American audiences ready to see a woman rape her rapist with a blue dildo? I'm a sucker for cop films (and Richard Gere), so I'm probably over-rating Brooklyn's Finest. Still, it's definitely worth at least your rental dollars. I admired A Single Man more than I actually enjoyed it. Tom Ford is clearly an accomplished visual stylist, but the film felt slightly cold and austere. I wanted to love it, but I only liked it. Whenever I can talk about Battlestar Galatica, I will talk about Battlestar Galactica. So...Battlestar Galactica!
