As I said in an earlier post, I had never been a fan of foreign language films, until this thread. I decided to check a couple of them out, and for the most part, have a new appreciation of them.
I watched the Girl with the Dragon Tatoo first, and absolutely loved it. I gave it 5 stars on the Netflix rating system. Of course, I had to see the other two in the order you mentioned and was not disappointed.
Apparently, there is an American version of the 1st one being made with Daniel Craig as the male star; but I can't imagine that they can replace Noomi Rapace so easily, as she was just awesome as the troubled, but brilliant young computer hacker.
While I don't trust this remake at all, I'll watch it for sure, if only for the reason to see how badly Hollywood screws it up!
