This week's theme is disappearances aka people gone missing, like my writing mood - football is the reason - so here are my picks
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2009)
Journalist Mikael Blomkvist is hired by a wealthy industrialist to find out what happened to his niece who disappeared 40 years earlier. This is the Swedish adaptation of the novel and it's awesome. It's the kind of film that keeps you on the edge of your seat even when you know how it's going to end. And Noomi Rapace is spectacular as Lisbeth, way better than Rooney Mara imo.
Gone Girl (2014)
On the day of his fifth wedding anniversary, Nick returns home only to find that his wife is missing, and he soon becomes the main suspect. Another great thriller, the story is engaging and so creepy I loved it. It's mind blowing how fast Rosamund Pike goes from sweet and lovely to psychopath.
Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (2015)
Decades have passed since the Death Star was destroyed and Luke Skywalker has vanished. Now everyone is looking for Luke, both the First Order led by Kylo Ren and the Resistance led by Leia Organa. I know a lot of people didn't like it and wanted it to be more original, but I actually like the tribute to the original trilogy. And the hero is a young woman, why shouldn't I like that?
