The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is a Swedish film directed by Niels Arden Oplev and based upon the bestselling novel of the same name by the late Swedish author Stieg Larsson. The film tells the tale of how disgraced journalist Mikael Blomkvist and tattooed computer hacker Lisbeth Salander set out to investigate and search for a woman who has been missing and presumed dead for over forty years. The odd pair links the disappearance to a large number of murders and begin to unearth a dark family history. Great stuff.

Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty is the first official solo debut album by OutKast great Big Boi. Collaborators on the album include Jamie Foxx, André 3000, T.I., and B.o.B. Fellow Outkast brother André 3000 even produces a track on the record. Also, other members of the Dungeon Family are also included on this LP. Previously released bangers like "Shine Blockas" and "Shutterbugg" should be an early sign to know that this could easily be one of the best releases of the year. Get this. Seriously.
