The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, REMAKE.

Below is the link to the trailer for the remake of  “Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” which surprisingly looks quite good considering the last popular swedish film they tried to remake was “Let The Right One In” which was made into an awful attempt of improving the film, “Let Me In”. Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara star in this remake, good casting? I cannot tell, however the trailer looks very lively and full of adrenaline and with the soundtrack of “Immigrant Song” which is also ‘remade’ by Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails and Karen O of The Yeah Yeah Yeahs I think this is not going to be terrible… All I can say is I hope Hollywood don’t butt fuck another brilliant foreign film, (sorry for the pun to those who have seen or read the story).

Below is a picture of the new Lisbeth Salander, Rooney Mara, there is a lot of arguing over wether she will ever live up to Noomi Rapace’s portrail of her.

 

Summer Tunes – # 9

Biz Markie – Just A Friend.

Remember the video to the my other summer tune ‘Me and Julio Down By The Schoolyard’, well Biz Markie was one of the rappers at the start of that. Here’s his song from ‘The Wackness’ soundtrack, which is fucking brilliant, so I recommend that highly. Anyway, I know it’s an old song but every year it reminds me of end of school and summer so thought it should be put in my first 10 summer tunes.

Here’s big number nine in the summer playlist ‘Just A Friend’ (Ignore the short six seconds of shit at the start):

Purely because it is such an amazing film with such a brilliant soundtrack here is the trailer for ‘The Wackness’

Alex Turner – ‘Stuck On A Puzzle’

Came out in March but popped up on my shuffle the other day and thought it was worthy of a post. From the soundtrack of Submarine, which is a brilliant film below is the trailer. Just when I lost all love in the Monkey’s  with ‘Suck It and See’ listening to Turner’s soundtrack to the film again shows me he hasn’t lost it, he’s just experimenting.

STUCK ON A PUZZLE:

Capitol Record’s Presents, Beastie Boys – ‘Fight For Your Right Revisited’

I’m aware this is old, but i have only just watched it so here it goes…

This short movie was made for the 25th anniversary of the original video’s release. It acts as a sequel to the events that took place in the original music video and stars Mike D, Ad-Rock and MCA (played by Seth Rogan, Elijah Wood & Danny McBride ) as they get into more drunken antics, before being challenged to a dance battle by the future Mike D, Ad-Rock and MCA. There are appearances from a number of actors and actresses including Kirsten Dunst, Orlando Bloom and Susan Sarandon.

Here’s The Original:

Here it is ‘Revisited’:
