movie

My boyfriend (who I lovingly refer to as “the manz”) loves movies. Actually, that’s an understatement. He adores movies; everything from the screenplay, to the cinematography, to the smell of the paper in the DVD case when it’s opened for the first time.

movie

I went into The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (henceforth known as TGWTDT because I have lazy sloth fingers) having no concept of the story or the characters.
