Movies: Fantastic Mr. Fox

July 15, 2010 | Movies

We watched Fantastic Mr. Fox after reading the book this summer. Well, sort of. We tried to watch it on the portable DVD player we brought, but things kept going wrong. So we’ll have to have a proper viewing when we get back home.

Movies: The Girl Who Played with Fire

July 11, 2010 | Movies

I finished watching my mother-in-law’s copy of The Girl Who Played with Fire (Flickan som lekte med elden), the Swedish movie that goes with Stieg Larsson‘s second book of the Millenium trilogy. I also got the third movie here in Norway. I’ll watch it when we get home.

Movies: Elling

March 7, 2010 | Movies

We watched Elling last night. I’m trying to remember who recommended it, but it was someone on Twitter. Anyway. Great recommendation. It’s a Norwegian film directed by Petter Næss and based on Ingvar Ambjørnsen’s novel from 1996, Brødre i blodet (Blood Brothers). We enjoyed the movie. It was very funny at times, a bit sad at times but sweet and touching the whole time.

Movie: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

February 2, 2010 | Books,Movies,Stieg Larsson

I got Män som hatar kvinnor from Norway for Christmas. It’s a movie based on Stieg Larsson‘s book, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Wow. It was in Swedish. I watched it with Norwegian subtitles. It stuck really close to the book, so that helped. But, wow. Great movie.
