OSCAR WATCH: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

With the Oscar nominations only an hour away, here are my last minute thoughts on another big contender - "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo":

In "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo", David Fincher goes back to his comfort zone, meticulously crafting this dark thriller. This is trademark Fincher - dark and unflinching. It is technically superb, blending it's great score and cinematography to capture the dark tone of the book. The masterful editing gives the film perfect pacing and makes up for the less than perfect source material. As the title suggests, this film relies heavily on the character of Lisbeth Salander, wonderfully depicted by Rooney Mara. She fully transforms herself into the role and makes it her own. This film picked up some late buzz and I expect it to be in a good position for Oscar nominations across the board. It's looking very likely that the film will show up in Best Picture, Best Director, Best Editing and Best Original Score. If they really dig the film, Mara could sneak into Best Actress, but there doesn't seem to be much wiggle room in that category. Another strong possibility is Best Cinematography. Tune in to the Oscar nominations announcement at 8:30am ET to find out this film's fate.


  1. It’s certainly worth seeing if you missed the original. If you saw it, however, there’s no way of unseeing it, and nothing in the new one to top it. Craig and Mara are great here though and Fincher brings so much more to this film like I was expecting too. Good write-up.

  3. When you’re ready to unwind after a long day, there’s nothing as relaxing as lying back and soaking in the tub. When you’re ready to fill up the tub, you’ll want it done properly and in style. That’s why the tub isn’t a tub until you’ve considered what type of bathtub tap to add.http://www.plumpinguk.co.uk/bath-taps.html

    When shopping for a new bathtub tap (also sometimes referred to as Roman tub fillers), keep in mind that they’re typically offered in the lighter finishes (like chrome and nickel tones), but there are a few exceptions. Also, you probably won’t need to worry too much about spout reach if your tub can already accommodate a bathtub tap. Also, many models include a hand shower as an added convenience.
