    I'm going to see the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo tonight. I'll let you know
    The mind of the performer is a very strange thing.

    Just watched the most amaaaaazing movie this morning. Departures (Oscar winner for Best Foreign Language Film a few years back). This just might be one of my five favourite films of all time. Just a wonderful, wonderful movie. If you haven't seen it, get it from your library or netflix immediately! (And have some hankies near by!!)

    I've seen the first three and thought they were good popcorn-movie fun. Plus the cast is great: Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Josh Holloway, Paula Patton and Anil Kapoor (Slumdog Millionaire).
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    I never saw any of the MI movies. Should I watch the first 3 before I see MI4?

    You don't need to see any of the previous MI movie before seeing MI4. Each film stands on its own.

    Echoing the love for Departures; it's a wonderful film.

    Departures was highly recommended to me by Netflix but for some reason it doesn't appeal to me. Maybe I'll try it anyway.
    Roll Tide, y'all!

    I found it more than a bit confusing but am going to read the book.

    Agree that Oldman was great. It's no tall order for an actor to keep the audience interested when the plot gets increasingly confusing, but Oldman pulled it off.

    I really liked the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Rooney did a great job. There is one scene that is really hard to watch but overall it was very enjoyable

    I can't quite figure out why I would see this new version when the original films were so perfect. How tight are Daniel Craig's jeans in this movie?

    I had read reviews that Departures was good and then a few people recommended this movie to me...I just wasn't expecting it to pack such an emotional whollop. I think I got it confused with another movie about a musician who left home and most of the movie about his time away from home. This movie is for people who like heartfelt dramas which have a few funny moments, but more moments that require a box of Kleenex.
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    I just watched my son's copy of the Swedish version. Good movie. I think you've seen it, too. Please let us know how they compare.

    NJL

    OOPS!!!!! I just read you're next post....

    Thanks for the info. The Miami Herald's Rene Rodriquez reviewed it in today's paper. He gave it a 3 1/2 star rating (out of a possible 4). To give a few short quotes from his review: "Every aspect of this superbly made film is precise...", "The movie radiates an ice-cold heat...", "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is a fabulously sinister entertainment, but it breaks your heart, too. Who expected that?".

    Hopefully I'll get to see it in the next week or so. Then I can make the comparison for myself. Until then I've got my son's copies of The Girl That Played With Fire and The Girl that Kicked the Hornet's Nest to keep me entertained...

    Just saw MI4 today and it is really good and keeps moving from start to finish. Action fans will not be disappointed! :respect:

    ).

    Based on your recommendation, I moved Departures to the top of my Netflix queue. Should get it early next week (OOPS! the holiday gets in the way)- in any case after I return the movie I currently have.

    Departures is such a good film that even the annoyingly saccharine and infantile Ryoko Hirosue cannot ruin it.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    Saw Mission Impossible. It was ok I guess. I'd give it a 6 out of 10. I was kind of expecting it to feel bigger than life, but it all felt rather small. But not unpleasant to watch--if nothing else for the scenery shots. Kinda reminded me of House Hunters International

    Finally the good movies are here, but I have very little time because of the holidays. I went to see The artist this afternoon, but could not find a parking place and had to leave without seeing the movie.

    Just got back from 'Young Adult' and both Mr. Japanfan and I loved it - it was good idea to ignore the clerk's warning that it wasn't very good. . .

    It helped a bit that I was once a whiskey drinking writer who made an idiot of herself. lived somewhat in a fantasy world, and have been jealous of ex's who have moved on to new relationships.

    But I think the movie would broadly appeal to many people, though probably more so to people who are older and look back on their high school days through the lens of life experience. . .

    Well acted, well scripted, and like Jason Reitman's other films (Juno, Up in the Air), tells a story about believable people and handles heavy emotions with a deft and light touch.

    I didn't know that "Young Adult" was a Jason Reitman film. Now I know for sure that I'm going to like it!
