First Official Look at Lisbeth Salander in Fincher’s “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”

Posted: January 12, 2011 at 10:42 am   /   Film, Local, Movie News

This is certainly not our first look, but it is the first clear look.  I was nervous about Rooney Mara in the role when I first heard the news, but I think she certainly looks the part.  She turned in nice work in The Social Network, but I thought she was flat and one dimensional […]

I have seen the musical Wicked three times.  I love it.  But I have not yet read the book that it was inspired by.  It is on my to do list.  I knew that their would be a movie based upon the stage show, but I feel like it will be a while.  They aren’t […]

I have really enjoyed the Narnia franchise thus far so am very happy to see this film still get released after Disney dropped it.  It looks to keep the same tone and atmosphere of the first two films which is fine by me, but not a great sign as far as profit goes.  The first […]

Make no mistake, Never Let Me Go is a science fiction film, but it is unlike any science fiction film you’ve ever seen before.  The film is one part coming of age drama and one part alternate universe sci-fi film. Based on the Kazuo Ishiguro novel of the same name, Never Let Me Go is […]

Julia Robert’s latest film, “Eat Pray Love,” is adapted from a best selling novel of the same name. While falling asleep when reading is usually considered acceptable with a book, it isn’t exactly the affect you want your movie to have on the audience. Unfortunately, this is that type of movie. Liz Gilbert (Julia Roberts) […]
