"The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" Movie Review

"The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo"

Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering on the island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger clan. Her body was never found, yet her beloved uncle is convinced it was murder and that the killer is a member of his own tightly knit but dysfunctional family. He employs disgraced financial journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist) and the tattooed and troubled but resourceful computer hacker Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) to investigate. When the pair link Harriets disappearance to a number of grotesque murders from almost forty years ago, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history. But the Vangers are a secretive clan, and Blomkvist and Salander are about to find out just how far they are prepared to go to protect themselves.

Movie Review:

The film starts with establishing the background of the movie, creating the foundation for Michael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander. It maybe a little boring bur don't miss out on details or else you'll regret being confused in the latter part of the film. Anyhow one the film's done establishing the characters, it then started to accelerate that you can't help but be glued to the movie screen to never miss out on any detail or any information. You'll be catered to an investigative/detective search for the young girl Harriet who has been lost for 40 years.I don't need to mention the cold background, the "no talking to each other" family and even the media war behind because the investigation and the search is enough to satisfy the eyes. You'll continue asking who? what happened? and even near then end when you thought that's it you'd end up asking WHAT!!!???!?!?!

Such a titillating story that can make you wonder up to the end.


Noomi Rapace may not be the winner especially with big names against her nevertheless, her presence and character is evident in every scene of the film. It's amazing to know she was able to portrayu a very difficult character indeed.

If you're ready for mind blowing search, then this movie is for you!

"The Descendants" Movie Review

"The Descendants"

From Alexander Payne, the creator of the Oscar-winning "Sideways", set in Hawaii, The Descendants movie 2011 is a sometimes humorous, sometimes tragic journey for Matt King (George Clooney) an indifferent husband and father of two girls, who is forced to re-examine his past and embrace his future when his wife suffers a boating accident off of Waikiki. The event leads to a rapprochement with his young daughters while Matt wrestles with a decision to sell the family's land handed down from Hawaiian royalty and missionaries. 

Movie Review:

The movie has been crafted very nicely that while watching you'll be surprised to find yourself searching, fighting and trying with the protagonist himself, Matt King. You'll start to feel what he feels about the situation. You cry when he found out, you struggle raising the two kids, you get irritated with the daughter's "boyfriend" and you feel helpless in front of your father in law thinking "If only I can tell you the truth...". And honestly it's all about "How I wish I can speak what I feel...".

Even with the dramatic background of the story, the film has not failed to add also funny and entertaining scenes: kissing the wife, hiding from the bushes, the daughter's boyfriend you'd want to kill grrrr. Lol!

It ends with Matt King standing for what he believes in. Not allowing to be pushed by the co-descendants but to speak loudest as possible. I think that's the best way to wrap it.


George Clooney is a shoo in for Best Actor. He's splendid! He was able to portray the loving and indifferent father and the confused and angry husband and the helpless descendant ALL AT THE SAME TIME!

"Sid" is amazing as well. He maybe just a supporting actor but he played his role very well. He's one of the characters you'd want to look forward to. You'd start hating him as in really hating him and then you'd see him grow (for whatever reason) you'd be happy and start liking him. Believe me, he's fun to watch.

Overall, go ahead and WATCH IT! Worth it!

"Sa bawat isa kasing pinipili, may isang libong bagay kang tinatanggihan.
Pano kung patunayan ng isang pinili mo na higit pa siya sa isang libong tinaggihan mo?"

Even if they'd say it's another copy cat of "No Strings Attached" or "Friends with Benefits", I'm still going to watch it! Wouldn't you?
