Just saw The American" yes... very slow and disappointing... expected more action from George, but beautiful Italian scenery.
Perfume was my favorite book and the movie was very good.
Law Abiding Citizen was violent but riveting to watch..
Taken will shake you to your soul... Liam is always amazing to watch..
Still waiting to see Avatar.... hope this helps with the quest to find some good flicks to watch!
Enjoy...

I just saw Miss Potter with Renee Zellweger. It was good, but mostly good for learning about the life of Beatrix Potter, the author of the Tales of Peter Rabbit. I'm a history nut and not much of a Renee Zellweger fan.

I am about to receive a string of movies from Netflix: Poirot, Midsomer Murders, etc., lots of English murder mysteries and dramas. Just love those!

I just saw The Bridesmaids, kinda like The Hangover... but from the womans point of view.

Probably would hit home more with the women, or at least someone who had been in a wedding party. .. I still enjoyed it anyway.

There is a Stephen Hawking 3 part series on NetFlicks that I would highly recommend.

Saw Super 8 a few weeks ago, this took place in Belmont County Ohio in 1979. (But actually filmed in Weirton WV).

Sci Fi & Alien fans may enjoy.

I just saw Girl with the Dragon Tattoo on opening night (Tuesday). The movie itself was good, although I think the Swedes did a better job with the story in their movie. I looked at my watch when it was over and I couldn't believe I was in the theater for 3 whole hours!

I heard they were making all 3 of the Girl movies at the same time with release dates over the next two years. It'll be interesting to see what they do script-wise with the other two.

Spinach. I'm assuming this is the new version with Daniel Craig.... as this is now being released on DVD I will be seeing it soon.... I tend not to go to theaters anymore.

Did you see the other 2 sequels from the Swedes? 'The Girl Who Played With Fire' , & 'The Gril Who Kicked The Hornets Nest' ? I caught these both within the last few months. All pretty good & rather long themselves (>2 hrs each), anyone know did these follow the books well?

Another local movie was to Kill the Irishman about the Cleveland Mafia Bombings.

The Swedish versions of Tattoo and Fire followed the books much more closely than the American versions. I haven't read Hornets Nest yet because I'm waiting for it to come out in paperback later this month, so I haven't yet seen the last Swedish movie of the series. As with any screen adaptation of a book, there are many details that don't make the movie cut. It seemed to me like the American movies cut details from the Swedish movies like the Swedish movies cut details from the books - kind of like a double watering down.

TY, my brother has read all the books but hasn't seen the last Swede movie either, I have yet to ask him about them. I was unaware they were going to make 3 movies in the US versions, just the first.

Seems like you say they are cutting details, yet making the movies longer, that makes them drag, the Swede versions did hold my attention, sometimes seeing a movie way over 2 hours is a discouragement from even renting them. That series though was well worth it! :)
