The American version of Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. I give it a 8.9/10. The original got a 10/10 from me.
Quick question: Do you think the American version was more violent/dark than the original?? I haven't seen either, but my sister saw both(shocking, given the fact that my sister isn't to keen of foreign movies) and she told me that she found the American version to be more violent & dark than the original.

Hmmm... This is a tricky question. Mainly because it is hard for me to discern since my idea of dark is different. However, the overall story was made a bit more obvious. One of the scenes was more drawn out than in the original which was a bit more violent sexually. Some of the parts that emphasized how violent and disturbed Lisbeth is were left out.

In general they seem about the same but I'm not the best person to ask. Hope I kinda answered helpfully enough. :/

Brest Fortress
with english subtitles.
A fairly historicaly accurate account of the heroic defence of Brest in 1941, as experienced by a 12 year old orphan boy, adopted by the regiment as a mascot/musician.

I thought it was pretty good

I watched Frenzy last night.  Fantastic movie  :)

Then a bit of Enter the Dragon - turned it on just in time to see Bruce Lee beat Chuck Norris to a pulp  ;D

Chuck Norris was in 'Way of the Dragon', not 'Enter the Dragon'.

The last movie I saw in a theatre was 'Sherlock Holmes: a Game of Shadows', which I enjoyed. At home I've been rewatching the 'Final Destination' series.

Ah, Pulp Fiction. That film never gets old.
Guys, this is getting creepy. Can we talk about cannibalism instead?

I watched The Student Nurses last night.  I was expecting a ridiculously campy feature, but it turned out to be quite sweet and sad  :-\

Thanks to On Demand, Tai ran a double feature of The Blob today, both the 1958 and '88 versions. Both are actually fairly good horror pictures, but are also both of them completely silly, too. Here's what I remember:

The Opening
'58: A bunch of circles, while "Beware of the Blob" is sung, roughly to the tune of "Feliz Navidad". Which, of course, is entirely non-threatening.
'88: A long slow sequence with semi-decent music, showing a completely empty town. It just goes on and on, and takes about 5 minutes into the film to see a human being.

The Effects
It's a movie about killer space Jell-O, so it's gonna look darn goofy either way. The '88 version did, of course, have better stupid effects, though. Although I could swear that a year later, Ghostbusters II would use the same effects for their mood slime. The '80s version is also a lot more graphic, which is ...interesting. Either way, I like them, no matter if they're making me laugh instead of gasp. I can only imagine the CGI monstrocity they'd make if they remade it a third time. (Please don't, Hollywood, the practical effects were silly but effective.)

Plot Points
Both films had some interesting plot bits which made them stand out. These are basically my reactions to each movie.
'58:
  • The last line of the movie is hilarious/horrifying from a modern perspective. "It'll stay... as long as the Arctic stays cold." 50 years later...

'88
  • The '88 version didn't shy away from depicting the death of a child, which impressed me. The '58 version didn't even have the guts to kill off the little dog.
  • The addition of a background story for the Blob's origin was completely unnecessary, and made some unnecessary secondary villains. We don't need that, we just want to see the Blob melting some more dudes. The '50s version actually had more mystery to it by not talking about the Blob's origins at all.
  • The death of the main character expy from the first film actually surprised me. They set him all up like the '58 version's Steve and you expected him to be the main character instead of the second victim.

In Conclusion
I liked both films. Both were charming in their own slime monster way, even if I didn't take them entirely seriously, and I would be interested in owning at least one of them on DVD.

The Princess and the Frog.

If anyone asks I'm going to claim it's because my youngest loves Tiana and not because I was singing along to "Ma Belle Evangaline".
Matthew 22:39 "And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself." God's own "don't be a dick" rule.

Lithp and Vene really need to have some kind of confusing sexual encounter where Vene spends the entire session lovingly insulting Lithp's technique, then cums on his face, ruffles his hair, says, "You're all right, kid!", and then punches him in the nuts.
