The Girl in the Spider’s Web

“The Girl in the Spider’s Web” is a chapter from the Dragon Tattoo series.
Lisbeth Salander the title character returns from the acclaimed Millennium book series that was created by Stieg Larsson.

This is the on-screen adaptation of the Global Best-Selling novel.

I was totally confused to say the least. There does not appear to be any connection what so ever between the 2009 “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and this installment.
It’s difficult to follow because the character Lisbeth Salander has been played by several actresses. There is no consistency.
I didn’t see anything new and different. The movie is dark, depressing and a bit vile. There is hints of child abuse/molestation (Father/Daughter), but you never actually see it happening.

The movie does clear up at the end when you finally figure out that the sister who was left behind all those years is out for revenge against the sister who escaped.

The positives are that there is some interesting action, cool computer hacks and some kick-ass fight scenes. That’s about it.

Wait for “The Girl in the Spider’s Web” to hit DVD or Blue-Ray.

This is a 2 Star Movie!!

Blade Runner 2049 the IMAX 3D Experience

Thirty Five Years later, “Blade Runner” returns.

It’s the year 2049, a secret that has been buried for a long time is brought into the light by a young blade runner, Officer K (Ryan Gosling). This secret leads Officer K in search of a former blade runner, Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) who has been missing for over thirty years. The story unfolds from there…

I may be in the minority, because I did not find “Blade Runner 2049” entertaining. It was Dark, Cloudy, Overcast, Dirty and Boring. There was little to no excitement!! The characters were mostly stoic.

However there are some positives, the cinematography is awesome. The special effects are cool and the 3D aspects are on point. The action was sometimes intense, but most of the time just ho-hum.

I just wasn’t able to get into the movie. That doesn’t mean it was bad. You may find that you enjoy it.

This is a 3½ Star Movie!
