Dragon Tattoo VS Dragon Tattoo

In 2009 Niels Arden Oplev directed the Swedish language movie renditions of Stieg Larsson's first book in "The Girl" series - The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Two years later David Fincher directed the English language counterpart to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.  Both are intense films with a deep storyline. Both show the grungy side of  life and have enough uncomfortable moments to make some squirm. Both are exciting and I think both will be hugely successful. Both are decent films with great casts.

However, I prefer one over the other. My review can be found in my new Movie review module of the Man, the Myth, the Legend.  Everyone knows I'm a huge movie buff and have a personal collection large enough to start a movie store. 

The original Swedish films are all available on Netflix Streaming and the English version is still in theaters as of the writing of this blog post.
