Music from "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"


     Last night I had gone to see the recent movie, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I generally enjoyed the movie, it was really nice. The transitions from scene to scene in the beginning were different and exciting, it almost reminded me of something like Scott Pilgrim, but less interesting transitions were used later.


     As for the music, the trailer music was a big hit, the Immigrant Song remake by Trent Reznor and Karen O, but in the movie was a lot more ambiance. Not the ambiance like rain water and tree frog type that your grandma used to listen to, but rock or synth, mixed with eerie movie ambiance. 

     As for the more eerie music, it's implemented like most, but as for the rock, it reminded me a lot of the the stuff Trent did in the Nine Inch Nails album, Halo_Fourteen. That left and right album they did. The right side is what I'm referring to, a lot of harder rock and electronic sounds, but used well.


     A lot of music composers are going for the "less is more" attitude in movies lately. We've come a long way from John Williams, big and robust scores to Hans Zimmer making some full action scenes in The Dark Knight music-less.  


     If you're into the harder rock music scene, then this is perfect for you, especially as background music for your ever day tasks. When driving, I don't normally enjoy listening to music with too much going on, (Unless it's classical music, of course!), so I prefer this over most others. 

     Overall, the music of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was a great movie, with great music.  Suggested!

  7. I love The Dark Knight score. I listen to it when I go to the gym. Funny how I think its heard only once in the movie.

  8. I'm thinking of watching this movie, finally, after having to deal with the regret and resentment of how much money the book is actually making. We can all learn something from that sort of marketing.
