Didn't think it was shite but agree it wasn't executed as well as it could have been. I love finchers films and think Daniel Craig is good…..but the Swedish film told the story better imo

This.

Calling it shite was a bit harsh. But from reading the books first and then watching the films I was kind of let down. Pretty much always the case though.

The tagged on ending was shite though thinking about it.

Haha, I remember thinking this during the movie, "Daniel Craig's knitwear is on point!"

I disagree, Fincher was far more faithful to the books than the Swedish version and moved at a better pace than the book too. The faults of the book carried over but it was so well made (as I would expect from Fincher and the cast) that I can excuse these issues. I'm not sure if someone who hasn't read\seen the original will be able to follow it though, there is quite a lot of content that isn't really needed for the main plot.

Plus it wasn't a remake it was an adaptation.

Props, watched this earlier and enjoyed it. Not as good as Blue Valentine.

Looking for sort of meandering but powerful well shot films? Not sure if there is such a description of film but if anyone could recommend some films that loosely fir the bill I will give them a go.

The Assassination of Robert Ford by the Coward Jessie James

Old Joy

Valhalla Rising

i know im years late, but watched bad lieutenant last night.
was so fucking close to becoming a classic in the heady heights of pulp fiction. but it didnt quite make it down to a couple of cheesey scenes like the shagging the bird in front of the boyfriend etc that were just there to fill in the gaps of a cult film, but didnt actually work.
was the last bit a crack enduced dream by the way, when his life went all brillaint and he become a bad captian and won the bet?
and then when it went back to him nicking nightclubbers gear again was actually the real and true ending?

Frailty- Dodgy 'cable like' film, directed by Bill Paxton, a bit too budget for my tastes.
