  • Andrew R.

    The latest film in the Millennium trilogy is The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest.

    We need an Essanay Studios rejection letter nowadays. And I love the “TV ruins movies” argument, particularly #3.

    And Peter Morgan, you should’ve had the balls to tell Clint, “This movie sucks.”

    Haha, I just watched “The Girl Who Played with Fire” on Netflix about an hour ago.

    I indifferent with Movies on tv rant, I mainly agree with just the time formatting argument. Advertising and censorship are there for a reason, although both can be improved on how they’re handled. For the reputation bit, well I guess it has some points.
