I dont go to the theatre much but am really considering this and Halloween

I've got the AMC Stubs A-List, so I pay $20 a month and can see 3 movies a week for free (and, unlike the dying MoviePass, which I loved, this lets me order my seats online and see Dolby or IMAX at no extra cost). Saw First Man and El Royale last week, seeing The Hate U Give today, Old Man and the Gun tomorrow and Halloween on Sunday.

Haven't heard great things about Halloween, but, oh well. The soundtrack is enough for me to enjoy it as a whole, haha.

Can I just reiterate that Disney is killing the SW franchise by saturating us with films?
Just read a Bobba Fett film was nixed, and thank goodness for that.

You can thank Solo's bad performance for that, and "The Mandalorian" tv show coming to Disney's streaming service. I agree with you though, nobody needed that movie.

I refuse to thank Solo for anything lol
I was against the very idea. Id much rather have seen an Obi Wan film revolving around the Clone Wars if we had to have one.
After they finish up with Rey, they need to move out of the Skywalker franchise.
Hell, venture in to the Old Republic stories

Anyone see The Girl in a Spider's Web?

I hate to say this but after seeing the trailer, I'm seriously disappointed.
Lisbeth is now an action hero? Please.
Fincher's Dragon Tattoo was styled much closer to the book's character. This just seems like you could've called this movie generic action movie 4,322.

I think that's how the second book actually went though. More action, almost a superhero "avenging angel" kind of thing, lile Punisher. The movie does look like a Mission Impossible film, with Lisbeth as Ethan and her support as the rest of the IMF.

I just wish the trailer didn't spoil the entire movie, as it appears to do.

I didn't read it, but if it did then Im really not interested because that is such a departure from what Larsson's character was in the books and other films.

So, reading the wiki entry, I now see that this is apparently the FOURTH book, and was not written by Stieg. Although apparently it was received well. Which is a lot of words to say: actually I do not know.

https://film.avclub.com/the-girl-in-the-spider-s-web-pits-lisbeth-salander-agai-1830239792

This is one of the few sites whose reviews I trust (the others being io9, who usually only do fantasy or sci-fi movie reviews (or comic book movies), that's sort of their thing, but this may pop up on there. The other being Scott Mendelson, the Forbes movie reviewer.

Forgot Scott reviewed it, added the link here.
