Has anyone seen the new movie Millennium (or The girl with the dragon tattoo) that has just come out recently, the Swedish movie ?

If so, how did you find it ?

I haven't personnally read the books and I therefore didn't quite knew what to expect but got some great feedback from others about this upcoming movie so I went to see it.

It really was one of the most horrible movie I have ever seen because of some very violent scenes there was in it which for the most seemed very realistic, which I didn't expect but which you can easily see coming. The movie is very much about ''women hating''/violence towards women and is very disturbing, even though it's not a real story.

But, the thing is, the movie also had a very positive meaning behind it for me. I very much liked the character ''Lisbeth Salander'' in the movie, not just because she is freaking hot, but because she's just portrayed as this very strong women who's had a very loaded past including multiple abuses who's just a survivor and has become a successful women. I just think that this sends a very positive message that you can go through anything, even the most horrible things.

Hey cool, I'm not familiar with either the movie or the book. Do you have a link or synopsis you could share with those of us that are out of the loop? [Smile]

I didn't realize that the movie might just not have yet come out in English since it's a Swedish movie but it's a little bit weird because movies are generally translated in English before French. Anyway.

But here's a link to the book which is a trilogy :

(Honestly, I haven't been to a movie theater in a few years, and I rarely watch TV, so it may well have already come out in the States. I'm just perpetually behind the times. [Razz] )
