  1. I just finished the Larsson trilogy and would give it a definite 10/10. Even tho they are a three book set it would almost be like reading just one of "The Hobbit" books if you didn't read all three.

    :thumbsup: Great series. I'm actually watching the film "The Girl Who Played With Fire" now. I saw the first one and I thought it was as good as everyone hyped it up to be, definitely doing the book justice.

    I just hope they don't try to do an American remake, the Swedish original should not be touched, though I could understand them wanting to tone down those scenes. :P

  4. yes, but it's confusing as hell. When some guy tells me he's into R'n B, he's mostly not into the R&B that I like.

    I just went through that yesterday, not a very pleasant experience indeed. :P

    To avoid confusion when discussing music a set, properly-defined vocabulary is very useful, though at times strangely elusive. Or people could just play it safe and list the artists and songs they mean.

  7. 500 Days of Summer is fantastic.

    Agreed, a bright spot in the usually dark abyss that is the romantic comedy genre. Funny, bittersweet and believably-acted.

    Last movie I saw: The Killers (1946, not the 2010, probably substandard, comedy of the same name)

    A classic film noir starring Burt Lancaster and Ava Gardner. Told largely in flashbacks detailing the events around a payroll heist involving an ex-prize fighter, now gas station attendent, known as the Swede who was recently killed by hitmen. An insurance investigator is called in, comes across the old robbery case and begins looking for the truth behind both the heist and the Swede's murder. With first-rate performances all around, an excellent opening sequence and interesting narrative structure I'd give it an 8.7/10

  8. Um, apparantly not. :P

    Spain just beat Germany 1-0, they face the Netherlands on Sunday! :o

    Spain dominated from the start and kept possession for much of the game. They defended well, kept pushing forward and got lucky from a set-piece. But overall Germany was bafflingly non-threatening. I doubt very many would have predicted this one.

  9. 3-2 final for the Netherlands, yay. :D

    Though it was far from a perfect performance. Stekelenburg could have done better in goal and there were some defensive errors, but the combined attacking force of Robben, Sniejder, Kuyt and Van Persie was in top form. Still it could have ended better for them instead of with the late Uruguay goal and the referee letting the 3 min added time stretch to 5. But they got their win so best of luck to them against, well, y'know. ;)
