Tattoo U.

Regal Movies retweeted my comment about “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.” I enjoyed the movie and also enjoyed the fact that I knew almost nothing about the thriller’s plot in advance. Unlike most people I know, I haven’t read the any of the books in Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy, nor have I seen any of the Swedish films starring Noomi Rapace as Lisbeth Salander. I received a few replies on Twitter from people urging me to see the Swedish version. It’s available via both Xfinity On Demand and Amazon Instant Video.

I was impressed with Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara as Mikael and Lisbeth. I’m not sure why but I especially liked the way Mikael let his eyeglasses dangle under his chin when he was deep in thought. I was also able to forget that Craig is a great James Bond.

Mara impressed me with her intensity and her Swedish accent. I am also intrigued by her family. Two of her great-grandfathers are Art Rooney and Tim Mara, the founders of the Pittsburgh Steelers and New York Giants, respectively. One of her aunts, Bridget Rooney, went to the same school as my sister. One of her uncles, Frank Mara, went to the same school as me.
