Even though it’s not out, it’s brought me lots of excitement, and happiness, the books included.
And acting like it’ll be a giant piece of shit because it’s just like all the other hollywood remakes, or really even people who think they’ll like it, but then say “it’ll be good but only for a hollywood remake”. They also talk about how pointless it is, and here is my response.
Number 1 - not a remake, an adaptation of the book.
Number 2 - it’s made by David Fincher, one of the most subversive and interesting fucking directors in hollywood, whether or not it’s a “hollywood” movie means jack shit, because it’s going to be fucking amazing.
Number 3 - The swedish version left so much to be desired, even if you liked it, I think it’s still possible to admit that it could’ve been more faithful to the source material. What does this mean? It wasn’t perfect, David Fincher can make a new version, his own version that isn’t pointless. If it were pointless, it would be a shot for shot remake, will it be that? NO.
OK I feel better now.
And I’m really liking it, already written a page, and I think I’m going to enjoy this. Hopefully I can finish it by the end of the month so I can “win” nanowrimo for once, and get the book in physical form.
But if not I’m not going to sweat it, I’d rather enjoy writing it then having to rush it.
I’ve liked it, but it’s been boring these first 200 pages (funnily enough that seems to be the case with all the books) but it’s finally gotten going, and Lisbeth is back in the story a lot more. So I’m finally enjoying it, I plan to finish it by the day after tomorrow at least.
I’m so reading the shit out of this tonight.
I’ve had many ideas, but I feel like I need an idea, and characters that in themselves just make me WANT to write them, I feel like if it’s something I don’t WANT to really bad to write that I shouldn’t write it, I don’t know, must think up ideas.
