The Girl with the dragon tattoo
Thought the whole rape scene was really unneccsary. Kept wanting to see more about Elizabeths backstory not nude shots thrown into the mix.

Lisbeth (if that's her name) in the Swedish movies is a hot chick. I saw the trailer on tv the other day for the American remakes and they decided to have her role played by some retard looking girl?! Like wtf?!!! :S

Why was it
unnecessary? It's an essential part of the character/story/series and the new version of the film portrayed it exactly how it was written.
For the record the newer version kills the Swedish version by a long shot. Steven Zaillian did a much better job on the screenplay and keeping with the original details of the book. David Fincher did an excellent job of recreating the visuals. I felt like the Swedish version lacked in both areas considerably. That's not to say the Swedish version was bad. I just don't think it did the book/author justice. It left out too many details that were integral to the flow of the story.
Unfortunately, I can't compare the dialog, because I had to read subtitles on the Swedish version. Enjoyed the majority of the cast in both versions though.

I've not seen the films or read the books BUT I am a hugeeee David Fincher fan & he has done some incredible films from books so I can imagine he's going to do a pretty great job on this film, he's pretty much my main reason for even wanting to see this film (:

Out of the two
The Fincher version was a much more accurate comparison to what I built up in my mind from reading the book. They did a good job on the actors in both versions, but I think the budget constraints on the Swedish version really showed in the final product.

I'm actually really looking forward to seeing it, I've loved him since Alien 3 & yes I'm aware I'm one of the very few who liked that movie lol I'm not big into Daniel Craig but from the trailers he looks alright lol (:

I thought about that after I punched submit. It felt incomplete, but seriously didn't have much more to add.

> If you like americanised movies...
That's irrelevant to me. It's just a better film and a clearer representation of the author's words.

In the book the leading lady looks like a retard and not a hot chick?

what something so subjective has to do with it. Regardless though, I think both are hot.
