This year's Firsts

A brand new year has come yet the feeling that clothed the days after the last of 2010 felt almost the same, though we believe for this to be the current year where the dates written everywhere will definitely have a bit of change.

With a faithful belief that this is the beginning of a year, wishing it to be a wonderful and beautiful year then it’s only just to treat it as it is.

For my first book this year, continuing my Classic reads would be F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Beautiful and Damned. After reading The Great Gatsby, I thought I’d like to read the rest of his works. 

The Beautiful and Damned

I am thinking for Black Swan or The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo for my very first movie that I’m going to watch from beginning ‘til the end this year. Perhaps I’ll go for Black Swan first then The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo next on the same day. Which will be this coming Saturday.

Black Swan
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Euro Version)
I was sort of disappointed with the cast of the European version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo but I know I would enjoy watching the movie when they speak in their original tongue and I read the English subtitles at the base of the screen. 

Then again, I was happy to find out that in the Hollywood Version, they took Daniel Craig as the lead role! I knew it... It was just as how I imagined it to be haha! But the Hollywood release would be on December 2011. 
The Movie trilogy was already released by the Europeans starting just last year. Isn't Hollywood rather a few steps behind? I suppose I'd like watching their version since Blomkvist in the European version has a face of the moon's crater.
The question still remains... Who will play Lisbeth Salander for the Hollywood version?
