I’m trying something new. I’m downsizing my texts. The last couple of posts I’ve been a few passages short of a novel. I know this because a publisher called and asked when my book will be released. So if shorter texts don’t work I’ll just stick to consonants.

Something I love during wintertime is coming in from the cold, sit down in a nice and warm movie theater with a (hopefully) good film on screen. This winter Hollywood is really giving us a Blockerbuster Christmas.
The three biggest films are of course The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by David Fincher, Sherlock Holmes 2 by Guy Ritchie and Mission Impossible 4 by Brad Bird.
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo will probably be Sweden’s best grossing film this season due to:
1. The film is directed by David Fincher and it looks amazing.
2. The film is based on one of Sweden’s most popular bookseries ever, The Millennium series by Stieg Larsson.
3. Swedish film legend Stellan Skarsgård is in it.
4. What Swede doesn’t want to see James Bond walk on the streets of Stockholm and (try to) say a bunch of Swedish names?
Then we have Sherlock Holmes 2 where Swedish actress Noomi Rapace (that got famous thanks to the original The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) not only landed a big role, she also got her own poster. This could be a contender for the highest grossing film this season due to it’s “popcorn factor” and of course Robert Downey Jr.
Personally The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is the film I’m looking forward to the most but after that one it’s the new Mission Impossible film. The biggest reason is because I’m a fan of the series (I forgive them for the second one) but also because Swedish actor Michael Nyqvist, a man that has built his career here in Sweden on drama, drama and drama is now the ultimate bad guy in a Hollywood film. How can one NOT look forward to this? Very brave Mr. Nyqvist.
Of course I’m seeing all of these the moment they get released so get ready for some reviews. And as we can see my text didn’t get much shorter so the reviews w ll b h rd t r d.
