Movie Review - 3.5

I've been slacking with the reviews but now there's 2 that i think are really good and worth writing about. Earlier i wrote about Inception which is still by far the best movie i've seen this year.

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

First off, it's not what you think. F
rom the title i thought it was going to be some teen girl movie starring Hanna Montanan or something. Ooooohhh but it wasn't. It was based on a best selling book by Stieg Larssons. Who i'm guessing is from Sweeden because that's what language the movie was in. You have to watch it with subtitles. It's more then two and a half hours long and the first half of the movie made me feel very uncomfortable. It was weird. They showed stuff you don't normally see in movies from the USA. It's about a 40 year old movie that the two main characters are trying to solve. It's really well thought out and easy to get drawing in to the very in-depth story and characters.

Great movie, but still creepy and uncomfortably weird, 8 out of 10.
8 thumbs up rating, movie rating, good

The Book of Eli

Simply put, it's Mad Max, except replace gasoline with a "special book." And replace Mel Gibson with Denzel Washington. And there's this annoying girl that follows him around. But other than that it's basically the same. Even though the entire movie was this sort of grayish color, visually it was awesome. The story was cool too, except for the annoying girl. And, at least for me, there was a huge twist at the end that i didn't see coming.

Looked cool, the action was good, the story was ok, i'd watch it again, 7 out of 10.
7 thumbs up rating, movie review, book of eli
