OMG this is from my favorite show, Digimon!!!
This is my review of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (2011). If you didn’t read my intro post, here is an overview. I will review the film based on three areas: Construction, Presentation, and Pathos. For more info I would suggest going to the “What is all this?” post.
Adapted from Author Stieg Larson’s spellbinding novel of the same name, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is an expertly woven tale of murder, sex, religion, corporate intrigue, cyber crime, and women’s rights. Having read the books I will say it is a very good adaptation, with a few liberties taken but none that where offensive in my opinion. But this had nothing to do with my review. I plan to review it as just the film The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.
Well if you have stumbled upon (perhaps even using Stumble Upon) my little hobby then perhaps you would like to know what all this is. This is my film review blog. I am purely an enthusiast that greatly enjoys film. I plan to update this with reviews of current films (ones that are in theaters and are widely popular or need more attention) and classics that I feel are of a high quality.
I will review each movie based on several criteria; including Construction (how well the film was made. This includes the elements of Cinematography, Lighting, Art Direction), Presentation (How well the film is presented. This includes Acting, Writing, Music) and Pathos (How all the previous elements work together to impact the viewer. Seeing as how everyone reacts differently to film, I will have to use my own experience and reactions for this. I hope for this part to help you, the reader, gauge how you will react)
Each of the criteria will be scored out of 5 and then all three areas will be averaged. I will round up for scores above .5 (so a 3.6 would be rounded to a 4) and down for scores bellow .5 (so a 4.3 would be a 4 as well). Anything Bellow a 3.5 will be given a “Not Worth Seeing Rating. Anything at or above a 3.5 will be given a “Worth Seeing” rating. Anything at or above a 4.5 will be given a “Must See” rating.
Lost yet? Don’t worry the application of all this can be seen in my first review for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
