Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy GIVEAWAY

Gosh, I almost forgot!
Two amazing films both out on DVD  and Blu Ray today. I saw them in the theatre last year so I will link to the reviews I posted back then. Remember it's usually only the BluRay editions that are carrying the extra features we've come to know and love.
GIVEAWAY!
I have one copy of the movie tie-in edition of the book, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy by John LeCarre, plus a Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy notepad cube to give away.
see entry details below

TINKER, TAILOR, SOLDIER, SPY

Stars: Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, John Hurt, Benedict Cumberbatch,Tom Hardy, Mark Strong and Toby Jones
Directed by Tomas Alfredson
"And so it began. And right off the bat, it was different from LeCarre's gentle start with Jim Prideaux arriving at the school in its bucolic setting. Instead we are taken to the Circus right away. If I thought for a moment that the film might be leaving LeCarre's quiet suspense behind in favor of a more modern taste for fast action I was wrong. The film moves slowly but steadily along, with frequent flashbacks from this spy or that to explain what they knew, when they knew it, and who they told, thereby explaining the intricasies of the plot."

THE GIRL W/ THE DRAGON TATTOO   Stars: Rooney Mara, Daniel Craig, Christopher Plummer, Stellan Starsgaard, Robin Wright.     Directed by: David Fincher  First, the credits including the score by Trent Rosner who, along with Atticus Rose, did the entire film score, were a work of art in their own right. In fact the transition from credits to opening frame was a little jarring but there he was, Daniel Craig, a sexy, grizzled, intelligent looking Mikael Blomquist.
Superficial stuff - loved his look. His black overcoat, dark jeans turned up at the bottom, messenger bag, the glasses he dangles off one ear (I have worn glasses for 50 years and never dangled them like that. BUT I'm going to start practicing ha ha!) he just exuded the vibe of a tres hip, intellectual journalist working for one of those uber cool oversized European magazines. Don't talk to me about his lack of Swedish accent; I didn't miss it. I could care less.

    I always liked his lesser known films, especially The Mother & Love is the Devil, because he just exudes so much charm, charisma, brawn, and shows that he is more than just beautiful man.

    1. Well! I wasn't familiar with The Mother so I took a look at an 8min clip on Youtube based on your recommendation! Not what I was expecting; I agree he is beautiful yes but has so much depth. I'll be checking to see if I can get my hands on the whole movie. Pretty provocative suject...

  2. I have to say that I love Daniel Craig as 007. Casino Royale is an all around good movie!

  3. I liked Daniel Craig in 'Cowboys and Aliens' the best because I think he portrays being a cowboy really well, and looks the part, with his rugged good looks and great acting talent, I think he would be great in any future western or old west oriented films. Thanks for having the giveaway!

    1. Ah Ron, you must be a true fan. He does look the part for sure. I didn't see the movie - I think it was the aliens that scared me off but I can see him playing either part in 3:10 to Yuma - the remake with Christian Bale and Russell Crowe. Funny when you think about neither one of these 'cowboys' being American!

  4. I just pulled up a list to make sure I was not forgetting any movies - he's been in 60 :) So, I picked an obscure one - "Munich." I remember when I was 10, the Israeli wrestling team being killed at the Munich Olympics. This movie is about the Israelis going after the Black Septemberists one by one. Daniel Craig plays "Steve" one of the Israelis. There is a lot of action, but also a lot of soul-searching about whether an eye-for-an-eye is the right policy. I just thought it was a good movie, and that he did a good job :)

  5. I didn't remember him from Munich and I didn't realize his credits were that extensive...I think Layer Cake is the first one I thought, hmmm...
    thanks for the info... I started watching Love and Rage last night; steamy stuff.

  6. My favorite Daniel Craig movie would have to be the one that 'introduced' me to him- Layer Cake.
