Män Som Hatar Kvinnor * Niels Arden Oplev (2009)

“Men That Hate Women” is the first part of the Swedish Millenium trilogy. Since we recently watched “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” (strangely enough also the international title of the original) I was not sure if we should watch the Swedish version too, but I am glad we did. The American version is better as a film (yep), but the Swedish version is much better in the telling of the story. From the beginning it is clear what Blomkvist did to the company that put him in jail and for some reason the remake leaves out Blomkvists past on the island and added elements to the story of Lisbeth. I am not going to read the book to find out how things should be, but I am just saying that watching the Swedish version makes the story a lot clearer. The story you can read in the other review. On to “Flickan Som Lekte Med Elden”.

Wicker weekend

Last weekend I saw both Wicker Man films, the 1973 original and the 2006 remake and I just see that I ‘blogged’ about these films before.


Nicholas Winding weekend

Last weekend I have rewatched both “Drive” (2011) and “Only God Forgives” (2013). The films are very similar, yet very different. Both have Ryan Gosling as poker-faced main character. In both films Goslings character is involved in illegal activities, but does not really seem to want to. Of course, both films are slow and minimalistic. [...]

No blog

A “blog” with one entry every two years, that is quite cool, is it not?

It has been a couple of years since I added “blogs” to the different sections so I could share information other than reviews. Looking back, I am not entirely sure what kind of information I had in mind. I [...]

Fantasy bombast

During two airplaneflights I have killed some time watching to fantasy spectacles. First the lauded “Avatar”, second the first “Hobbit”. I did not expect “Avatar” to be some sort of “Matrix”, but the famous blue characters inhabit some sort of ‘inbetweenworld’ that men can only come using some sort of machine. The film is an [...]
