GIRL WITH THE WHAT? Girl, please!

Last night I was accosted at the movie theater --- BOOM! TWAFF! TING! TUNG! THWACK! TACK! PING! PING! PING! Sensory overload.

Apparently rape was the theme of David Fincher’s GWTDT ! The opening was something you would expect on Tyra Banks’ America’s Next Top Model. Black oil slithering and pouring over white skin with weirdness…random acts of weirdness and I was lost. The book is Swedish. What about this opening was going to put me in Sweden or the story? The TONE was OFF from the first note!

Rooney Mara is about as interesting as watching paint dry and she's the lead.

And why the FUCK was Daniel Craig the only lazy actor on set? Everyone else seemed to be managing a Swedish accent except him. We are beyond blanketing the whole of Europe with a British Accent. Even Robin Wright who looked like a folded piece of leather brought a descent accent with her. So, Lisbeth was raped, she revenged, I walked out and didn’t look back.

This is Fincher having a total lack of respect for other artists. The original, SUBTITLED version was 100% better. WATCH THE ORIGINAL. Let's fund other voices.
