Favorite of the Week- The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo


Everything According to Erin


Ok so I have 2 things for my favorites this week. I know, I know, I just couldn't help myself.

First, is Matt and I rented The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo over the weekend from Redbox, and this is how the DVD looked:

I totally freaked out that it was a burned copy and that some jerkface had stolen from the company and that we might have to watch some crappy version or that the DVD might not work at all. So I tweeted Redbox about it all huffy, and they told me that the video was supposed to look like that because the main character Lisbeth is a computer hacker. Oh. Then, I felt dumb but was totally amazed. That's super cool they did it that way, I just wish I knew it beforehand or didn't jump to conclusions. The movie was really good and I look forward to seeing the future movies from the trilogy. I haven't read the books yet, and I'm not 100% sure I will. Have you read them?


My second favorite thing this week was my date with Mandy from In the Fashion Lane. We had such a blast shopping and having lunch. Blogging has really opened so many doors and I've met some of the most wonderful people. I'm so thankful to all of my readers and new friends I've met along the way.

That's so funny! I would've thought it was a burned copy too!

I totally would have done the same thing :) And I am glad the movie was good; the book was so graphic, i have been on the fence about seeing the movie.

I haven't read the books, but I watched the movie twice in theaters and loved it! Can't wait for the second movie!

I loved the movie but it was totally gross in some parts. I am on the third book and I feel they are better than the movie. I just started the Swedish movies, and they are a little better, maybe more like the book!

LOL at the DVD. I would have totally thought the same thing! We actually watched it this weekend too and I really liked it. There are certain aspects of the movie that were disturbing, but a good movie nonetheless. I don't think I'll be reading the books either though.

I'm so happy for you that you got to go on a date with another blogger! It's incredible how many people you have been able to meet through your blog :D

just watched that movie last night also. I thought it was good, but super long, I took a little nap in the beginning and then stayed up to watch the last 2hrs... probably won't read the books either haha.

I read "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" before seeing the movie and I thought the movie was amazing! Even better than the book which was a bit slow and long.

I read the dragon tattoo books and was not a fan - too much violence. That's a neat idea for the packaging of the movie though!

That's funny - we rented the same movie last night and I thought the same thing. What....redbox is selling copies? Ha. The movie needed subtitles, I felt like I missed alot of important lines due to 'mumbling'.

Miss you!! Sorry I've been on a hiatus lately. I finished the dressing room though - stop by and take a peek.
