Yeah, the movies, and I suppose the books, too, are pretty violent. But so engaging, too; at least, the violence serves a purpose. I hate remakes as a rule; I just don't see the point. Vanilla
Sky was the perfect example of this; the Spanish version, Abre Tus Ojos
, also with Penelope Cruz, was so much better. And subtitles have improved vastly; I notice with Spanish films that they're much more on the mark with what's actually being said. I can't stand dubbing; the Girl Who Played With Fire
DVD came with a dubbed or subtitled version and I watched the subtitled one. With dubbing, somehow the mouths never seem to be moving quite in sync with the dialogue. It's distracting.
I want to read the Larssen novels, too, but who knows when I'll get to them? Mt TBR is starting to look like Sierra TBR!
Love Sleepy Hollow
; perfect film for this time of year, actually.
