Good. I've only seen the 1st one. Thoroughly enjoyed it and the Daniel Craig version the other night. Looking forward to see the other films.

There will be parts of the film that I won't like but I'll just forward through them. Anyway apart from the fact that censorship doesn't work, why don't you just let people watch what they like?

Sorry, am I missing the plot here? I was looking forward to seeing this movie, but,....subtitles? Should there be subtitles? So not loving the subtitles, not that I am against, one of the best films I have ever seen was in subtitles ...the choir.....but this has to be a mistake surely!

Unless you were expecting the recent american remake with Daniel Craig, this is the original swedish adaptation.

If you buy the DVDs there's an option for an English soundtrack.

It gets slagged of a bit but unless you want to spend hours looking at subtitles with the three episodes, (I find it sometimes hard to read them and watch all the action at the same time) I don't think they did a bad job.

I can't believe in this day and age that people still moan about subtitles.

In my opinion the Swedish film trilogy is far superior to the Daniel Craig film, which seemed to have missed the point about Lisbeth, and made her into a petulant kid, instead of a victim turning into a strong woman.

Brilliant stuff and well worth seeing all three films.

Subtititles do not detract from the quality of the film for me.

I can follow a subtitled film easily, some of the best films I have watch have had them

Nikita (Luc Besson)

Grave of the Fireflies

8 Women

Even though I liked the Daniel Graig version of Girl with The dragon Tattoo I still watched tonights and enjoyed it

Subtitles are awesome, allowing you to watch great cinematic masterpieces that aren't in your native language, beats having the movie destroyed by dodgy dubbing.
That said I can understand sometimes subtitles can be frustrating only because of their speed and font size generally channel 4 movies have larger subtitles with a easy reading speed.

I agree with you about the preference of subtitles over dubbing.

If a foreign film has subtitles you can see a great performance by an actor who was hired specifically for the role.
With a dubbed film you stand a very good chance of having a bad voiceover from an actor who was paid considerably less money ruin all the great acting work.

It depends on the film though and who's doing the voiceover dubbing. For example I've enjoyed many spaghetti westerns which were dubbed.
But I've seen many dubbed films which completely ruin the original performances.

I find that Asian cinema probably suffers the worst by bad dubbing. Something just doesn't work when those films are dubbed.

Fantastic films

So much better than the awful remake from last year. Much better acting, much better cast and so loyal to the books

Plus it actually allowed me to stop being a snob over subtitled films, which i used to dislike.

As I suggested earlier, there's polarised views regarding dubbing.
Just because these films are dubbed doesn't mean they made a bad job of it, though you'd think most dubbing is crap given some of the posts. With the DVDs of these films you've a choice. Personally, regardless of what anyone says, it is difficult to see "body language" in a drama and read naffin' subtitles at the same time.

Third time I've seen it and TGWTDT improves with each viewing. It seems having more time to follow the subtitles and consider the plot as well makes for an enjoyable experience.

Subtitles don't ruin a film for me either. I've seen all three trilogy films and i'd prefer them in the original swedish language.

I like both versions, the US version is more cinematic I think. Good performances by both girls playing Lisabeth.
There were some odd editing last night, I'm sure a lot of scenes where cut?

I love subtites, much better than dubbing and I like listening to the original language. Swedish is a lovely.

I haven't seen this yet but interesting that the subtitling issue has arisen as usual. I suppose it doesn't even register with me because nearly all my favourite shows of the past few years have been European and subtitled - all three series of The Killing, Borgen, Spiral, The Bridge, The Night Shift (Naeturvaktin) etc. I always think it's sad that so many Brits have missed out on those amazing programmes just 'cause they don't like subtitles - they rave about US shows but can't appreciate the (even better in my view) Scandinavian ones.

I agree - I really like the sound of Swedish and also Norwegian. Interesting to hear how similar many Scandinavian words and phrases are to English as well.
