Cool.

OMG, I just discovered that all three books in Stieg Larsson's Millenium trilogy have been made into movies that are available on Netflix. It was on their recommendation I even rented the first movie ("You like foreign films with strong women characters: rent this!"). That got me reading the books in the first place.

I have only seen the first one, which are ok. The next two film, should be weaker out from some reviews. Mostly because they were developed for a mini tv show and the first for movie (also the directors are Swedish, and not Danish like the first movie ;) )

Well, it's the books I like. The movies just supply visuals.

What? Bloody Americans. Are they going to have it take place in Sweden? Probably not.

Sigh.

What is it with American remakes?

Relieved to hear it isn't some completely American version of a film series that politically makes more sense in Sweden. They'd have to change a lot of the details to get it to work in an American setting.

I guess they figure English subtitles are too much for an American audience? I admit I had an issue with them, but mostly because I multitask while watching movies and hate to keep my eyes on the screen the entire time lest I miss something.

Noami Rapace is great, and that's who I see in my head while reading the books.

Saw all three at the local semi-indie cinema and all were excellent. I do think the first one was best, though. But you won't regret watching them all.

If, like Lakrids says above, the others were made more for television, it would stand to reason the first would be best.

Thanks for the thumbs up, though.
