Critical MeMe

Time spent watching films, even crappy ones, is time well-spent.

    These aren't comments on ALL of the movies through which I've cried, yawned, laughed, and rolled my eyes, but just about everything I've seen since early 2002 is here plus a few from earlier. Post dates reflect my screening & parenthetical dates are the year of US release (aka Oscar eligibility).
    Yeah, a movie review blog isn't very original. But originality is overrated. Just ask Michael Bay.


The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (2011)

About 20 times better than first stab at adapting the book, making it approximately four billion times better than the book itself.  There were still some portions of it that were beyond uncomfortable, but it culled a decent film from a pile of yucky words.  Rooney Mara was the perfect Lisbeth.
