I liked it, although admittedly I haven't really seen the comics.

Saw "The Hunger Games" last week. a cross between the running man and the truman show .. much better than both of these. I haven't read the book so don't know how it compares. The plot has a few holes and you know how it is going to end. (I would have ended it differently) Well worth seeing.

Both very good but in different ways. The Swedish version is less glossy. New version is, as you would expect more hollywood and exciting. But I got fed up watching heroine(!) Lisbeth riding her motorbike. I read the books first and need to read these again to get an idea of how much the movies missed out. I'm sure they both finished differently. Both versions make sweden look really boring. Read the books though, these are better than both.

Jo Nesbo's Head Hunters is now showing, I think. Caught it at the film festival, and it was really entertaining. Great thriller, but also funny and intriguing.

Went to see The Sweeny today, brilliantly played by Ray Winstone and the chap from Plan B, Haley atwell is also very sexy.

Best British production ive seen for a while since The Long Good Friday.

Recomended 8)

I have just watched the "Excision" celluloid rendition.

I know I usually write a detailed précis of any movie I feel to be of merit .. but this movie is so very, very gravimetcally magnetic, whilst simultaneously being SO wrong, I feel I can't delve into the heart of where it comes from without damaging myself.

A *truly* disturbing movie .. in every sense .. and, given my disposition, I feel I can watch most things and not feel it surpasses what goes on inside my own head.

This movie does that and more .. truly wrong.

Cinematically superb, casting - brilliant - character acting may seem wooden (from the main protagonists) initially, but when you realise the subject matter and where it comes from and where it's going you'll see it is perfectly suited.

I actually had to watch this movie in three goes, it was so disturbing .. and coming from me - that's saying something.

There are no big names ( bar Malcolm McDowell) in the cast, but don't let that put you off .. the movie is compelling .. in the same way that looking at a decapitated road crash victim is.

Difficult to look at .. hard to look away from
I like him ... He says "Okie Dokie!"
