The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Aaron and I saw "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," yesterday
at a Sunday matinee
which is obviously the strangest combo ever to see this movie in,

and i'm very obsessed with it right now.

one of those things that grows and sticks with you, ya know?

so here's the deal.
i've never read the books.
and the movie is intense.

i looked at pics of the european version of this film online, and i'm going to say that i like the american Lisbeth Salander better.

she looks more innocent.
more actually like she might be 23.

which is incredible, that this character is actually this age.

i mean, this character KICKS SO MUCH SERIOUS ASS.
she's understated.
and perfect.
and spot on.

and i mean, i super have the hots for Daniel Craig, i totally, completely, irresponsibly do.
but i'm losing it over this fictional character Lisbeth Salander.

that's why i'm obsessed.

so the movie.
the movie is good.
the movie is reaaaallly good.
there's a couple of serious graphic scenes that can srsly f*ck you up if you're not prepared for them
do not see this movie with your mom
or your sensitive girlfriend(s)

it's not that kind of flick.
ideally, you need to see this film with someone that you don't have to worry about their feelings.
then, the two of you can sit back, experience the movie, and walk out of it kinda upset but super on board.

daniel craig is perfect in it.
rooney mara, as lisbeth, is amazingly impressive.

i mean, here she is in the movie:

and here she is in real life:


it'll mess you up if you think too much about it.
"Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"

the story works.
the characters work.
the relationships work.
the conflicts/differences/situations work.

it's super freaky
but so, so good.

a story that begs to be told.
