...I didn't like The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, to be honest. I didn't like the books or the movies. Maybe it's simply because I'm not really into crime-based movies/books, maybe it's that I didn't like Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara's acting. I don't know, I don't have a very strong opinion about the series as a whole.

One movie that I have enjoyed recently is The Barefoot Contessa (1954). Granted, it's an oldie, but after having it sit on my shelf for the last couple of years, I finally decided to give it a go.
Spoiler:
I AM NOW A DEVOTED FAN OF AVA GARDNER

Jesus, that was a good movie. Ava Gardner utterly owns the role as Maria D'Amata meanile doing something which should be taken very seriously, outshining Humphrey Bogart. I don't imagine many of you having seen The Barefoot Countessa, but I really recommend it.
