  14. Agreed. My personal favourite though has got to be kd lang's version, partly because of her lovely, rich voice and partly because I think it works so well as a piano-based song. She drops a few verses like most of the covers, but as long as they keep the "baby I've been here before..." and the "maybe there's a God above" ones I don't mind so much.

  17. The latest episode of Boardwalk Empire, still can't decide whether I like it or not, it's interesting, well-cast and generally promising but its lacking a certain tone or proper atmosphere or something...

  20. The thing is I think a remake is unnecessary. The story works on a certain level with a certain tone that I think Oplev captured well: subdued yet powerful. A remake would likely either copy the original and if so offer no new interpretation or worse "Hollywoodize" it, heighten the violence, increase the pace, compromise the source material for a market of moviegoers who aren't used to being patient with plot and development. Also, I don't think how good it will be will depend on the director per se. The story and movie hinges on Lisbeth's character and I highly doubt any other actress (especially the mainstream ones that you know the studio will pressure him to cast) can be as real and full an incarnation of her as Noomi Rapace, in both look and attitude.
