Yeah, Viola was the odds-on favorite to win... Very surprising.

I would've expected a body count in the movie considering Scorcese directed. Beaten

I highly recommend the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy. The original Swedish films, not the American remake. Excellent suspense films. Available on Netflix.

A co-worker from Sweden told me about that trilogy, but it didn't pique my interest for some reason. Sweat

Right on. It's intense man. I really enjoyed it. Well you can queue it up if you ever change your mind. Also available on Prime, too.

So, the Oscars are going to add a "most popular" category:https://variety.com/2018/film/news/oscars-popular-film-category-what-it-means-1202899599/

Imagine if they'd had it in 1984. Then we'd see ads for that "Oscar winning film", , , , "Police Academy". Bonk Bang Head Shake Head

Is it too late to comment on something posted over six years ago?

I thought the first film was excellent, the second decent, the third lousy. Noomi Rapace, who played the titular character, was memorable in that role.

Over the last decade I have invested a lot of time and money into foreign crime series. I especially enjoy the Scandinavian ones, from Denmark and Sweden in particular. Astonishing how a small country like Denmark could produce so many outstanding series, even more than big neighbor Sweden. Tiny Iceland also came out with a crime drama a couple of years ago that I enjoyed immensely (they're working on a sequel as I speak).

Years ago I used to watch a lot of British crime series; they still come out with the occasional impressive one, but I liked the older ones more.

France has produced a couple of crime series I liked.

Justified was the last really good American crime series I watched. But to be fair, I don't watch any American dramas anymore--the exception is zombie crap because that's what my significant other is into; I dunno why she likes that mind-numbing junk, but anything to keep her happy . . . .

And it's been years since I've watched a dorama. Don't know if I'm missing anything, given how disappointed I was in the quality of dorama in the years leading up to when I finally said no mas.
