We rarely go out to a movie, choosing instead to watch them at home on the DVR. When we do go out, we go to the Alamo Drafthouse, where we can eat dinner and have a few drinks while watching the movie.
Last night, we saw The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. It’s a book that I have started reading several times, but have yet to finish. Ususally I don’t want to see a movie until I’ve read the book it’s based on. But for this one, I was willing to bend the rule. Monte has read several of the books in this series, ravenously. So, he was eager to see it.
** Spoiler Alert **
I liked the movie, it has a very complicated story line and set of characters. I’m all for realism and all, but ….. I have to say that I just can’t appreciate the “art” associated with acting out a rape scene in a movie. Yeah. I guess I’m just old school – and getting older school it seems.
I think, tonight, catching up on episodes of season 1 of Downton Abbey is much more my speed. 🙂
