The movie version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is violent, dark, and scary. But then again, so was the book. I liked them both.
In other adventures, the entire 500Jerk family recently watched the roundly (and I might add, justifiably) criticized Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Although I'll watch just about any movie--subject to an exception for movies starring chipmunks--Wimpy Kid was pretty terrible. But as summed up by the chronically TV-deprived Miss M, "I consider it a privilege to watch any TV. I'm just glad I got to watch SOMETHING."
That's the spirit!
