Film Reviews


I finally got around to watching ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ yesterday.


Why did I wait so long?
What a brilliant film, I love a good mystery.

Rooney Mara is amazing as Lisbeth Salander and Daniel Craig can do no wrong as Mikael Blomkvist.


The reason I got around to watching it….. finally…… is because my current obsession, Joel Kinnaman makes and appearance.
2 appearances totalling around 30 seconds I think it was!!
Anyway, he did look rather dapper.


He was supposedly brought in as a cameo appearance and set up for a bigger part in the next film.
His character ‘Christer Malm’ is  Millennium Magazine’s art director and designer, “an exhibitionist gay celebrity”

An exhibitionist gay celebrity!!!
I hope this is correct because they have ‘announced’ the next film.
It’s still early days. Only Rooney Mara is confirmed and there is no release date set.

Joel as an exhibitionist gay celebrity!!
That’s actually quite spooky because when I was watching Lola Versus the other night with my husband, there is a scene at the beginning of the film where Joel is busy cooking up a storm for Lola while talking on the phone to a wedding cake designer and my husband turned to me and said…. ‘you know, he’d play a really good gay bloke’ and he’s absolutely right!!
I just hope they keep the character in the next film and bring back Joel in the role.

Anyway, getting off topic now.
Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is brilliant.
The first of a trilogy that they are taking their time making!
I may actually try the three Swedish versions as comparison.
