Pride and Prejudice – swooning over Mr. Darcy
“Mrs Darcy”😍😍😍
I returned the DVD to the library, but made a reservation for the BBC series DVD they recommended and also the book (I read it last year for the first time) , because the more the merrier 😜

    You’re going to watch the Colin Firth Jennifer Ehle version? THATS MY FAVORITE!! I have that version and the Bollywood version on top of my dvd player right now. The Keira Knightley version is my least favorite BY FAR. Its like–you’ve spent all of this time making a delicious cake. The most delicious pastry you’ve ever made in your life and then you went to eat it and dropped the entire thing on the ground. And your dog (or cat) came and ran through it. But, you still have a taste for cake! But you’re not making an entire masterpiece again. So you have a hostess cupcake instead. Its technically cake. Its even good(ish). It kinda fills the need for cake. But you know–and you’ll always know–that there’s much, MUCH better out there.

      I have to agree with your tastes 🙂
      I’m glad that the Keira Knightly one was actually the first one I saw, so it just got better from there 😀

        Oooooh good point. I was already obsessed with the A&E/BBC version so when I heard there was a new one (Keira Knightley) I was pumped thinking it was going to be just as good–if not better because shiny and new. I was sorely disappointed. There are exactly three scenes from that version that I like (in chronological, not preference order)
        1. When Lizzy teases Jane about Bingley and Jane hides under the bed covers and squirms around in embarrassment/happy
        2. When “Darcy” (Darcy my great aunt fanny) flexes his hand after handing Elizabeth into the carriage.
        3. When Mr. Collins hands Lizzy the flower before he starts his ridiculous proposal.

        You’ll notice that other than being the catalyst for number one–Kiera Knightley is not anywhere in here. Kiera Knightley. Psshh. I have a feeling I’m going to have the same negative reaction to Emily Blunt playing Mary Poppins next year. Who am I kidding. I already have a negative reaction. Emily Blunt. Pssshht. (I also do not approve of Emma Watson playing Belle.)

          Hmmm. I think Keira is OK in some stuff, but she just didn’t really make a good Elizabeth. She just seemed terribly anachronistic and moody, modern heroine type. Also, I think the fact that it was a movie and not a mini-series was already an issue lol. I think Jane Austen’s work is best done in at least a 4 episode series to do it justice (along with most other classics).

          I have neutral feelings for Blunt and Watson. I was going to watch Beauty and the Beast soon actually…it’ll be the first time I’ll see Watson outside of Harry Potter world. I guess I’ll temper my expectations…((cries))

            I’ve never seen it! I keep thinking I’m going to watch it because beauty and the beast is like pride and prejudice for the Disney set. But every time I try I end up sneering and walking away.

            I watched Beauty and the Beast in the theater and it was okay but I realized I basically watched the whole thing just to get to the ending 5 minutes when he transformed back into a man. I really like Dan Stevens, he was great in Legion on F/X

            @katrina Yes I saw! I wasn’t going to see it in theaters so I waited until it was on Netflix, so its on my to-watch list.

            @isa I know! Beauty and the Beast was my absolute favorite Disney movie growing up. I had the restored edition on DVD that I watched a thousand times. So…let’s see how this new version is. I’m watching it more out of curiosity than anything.

            I really like Pride and Prejudice, but Northanger Abbey and Persuasion our my two Austen loves 😀

    Glad you made a reservation for the BBC one (Firth & Ehle)!

    I dare say that it’s the one against which all others are measured.

    I agree with Isa in that the A&E version with Colin Firth is the best but it’s mainly about time and not having to rush things like a movie does. I quite liked the one with Keira Knightly though I thought it was sweet. Thrt soften Lizzys mother quite a bit and it was one of the few versions that made Jane the prettiest, like in the book.

    While I loved this version because Matthew Macfadyen started out so not atttractive and then managed to make me love him by the end—that rain scene—omg—he was so flustered and amazing, I agree that the BBC version is the gold standard, because Colin Firth is synonymous with Darcy. I made my college boyfriend sit through all three parts. Man, he must have really liked me. Lol!

      Ha. My boyfriend watched it with me. We were both impressed by their arguments. It’s nice watching actors have a dialogue even when they’re mad instead of just getting louder and louder. Actually the one who completely loses their cool. Loses. Ha. I wish I could emulate that.

        And I watched beauty and the beast for the last 5 minutes as well. And Legion! We must be kindred souls. Do you know when the next season is coming?

        2
        1

          Ah, at least I’m not alone! I just looked season 2 is set for early 2018 but exactly when I don’t know. 2017 flew! So did you watch Sense and Sensibility with D. Stevens as Edward?

    Do you have a sixth sense communication going on with my husband? Because he just started this tonight (we have it in blue ray) with no prompting. 😲

      He must know you/looking for brownie points. Lol. November is the time to hunker down and relax. I’m watching Train to Busan. Gong Yoo yeah!

          I’ve been meaning to watch Train to Busan for awhile now, now Netflix is acting up😧 I m think I must have decided to watch Gong Yoo since someone (Silvermists?) started posing Coffee Prince kisses. 😄

I watched again Pride and Prejudice, after a bad week swooning over Mr. Darcy is and always will be a classic and so satisfying
“I love you….most ardently” 😍, I love this scene: maybe his 1st proposal didn’t work but this enabled true communication

    Doesn’t Matthew Macfayden have the sexiest deep voice.

      It keeps him equal to Firth as Darcy IMO

        Yes, and his beautiful eyes help. I’ve always a sucker for deep voices, that’s one of the beauties of korean drama you don’t need to know the language to appreciate those great voices. I think I may notice it more that way actually

What an amazing surprise : I checked their site from time to time, and Nell released a new single 🤗: w/o a surprise I love it 💖. Nell’s lyrics never disappoint me, I had a bad week not related to a break up like in the song, but I relate to most of the lyrics like “I’m lonely but I wanna be alone
I wanna leave but I wanna stay too” “My empty heart is heavy like wet cotton, it keeps sinking”

Back to DB but for only a few posts, I had an exhausting and kind of bad week, I hope next week will get better. I started the sky of the puzzle 😊 , slow progress : ~20/30 pieces (w/o the border) for a 1500-piece puzzle hahaha , but its goal is achieved : relaxation time

    Sorting the pieces is always the most timeconsuming part of a puzzle lol. I hope next week will be a better one for you ^^

    Missing the big 3 channels’ regular shows as well. Hope all the political bias is weeded out soon and the employees can get back to their jobs. It must be hard to strike for such a long time.

    In the meantime, there’s a new YoF that just started, might help ease the wait a bit?

    I only watch KB with the idols that I like but I’m gonna watch this one because the preview seems so fun! And I miss the MBC variety shows too.

    When I went to Seoul last month, we saw the MBC office and there were tarpaulins of protests around it. I hope it ends soon and ends in fabor of the workers and viewers too.

            I loved it, I was laughing so much when they were filming the ad hahaha, it’s my 1st time watching YOF, one day I’ll try to catch up with all seasons ^^’ .
            I’ve started NJTTW S4 then marathoned all seasons, that’s why I started this one.
            2017 is a very good year for k-show for me : NJTTW, YOF, Hyori homestay, Dangerous beyond the blanket (and how to ruin myself : Produce 101 S2 hahaha)

        Oooh NJTTW s3 and 4 were awesome! I am yet to watch the first 2..
        2017 is a very good year for k-show for me too actually (my drama slump led to this) and I have watched all that you mentioned (except Hyori’s Homestay) and much more!

          NJTTW S1 was good but S2 was funnier (w/o spoiler : morning mission with eggs was one of my fav’).
          Your “much more” makes me curious, any suggestions ? (not that my watching schedule is full haha) , I forgot Night Goblin in my previous post

            This was the year I found Winner so
            Winner Tv (all out hilarious),
            WIN- the competition where they actually fought for the name “WINNER”, the other team was what went on to become iKON,
            just finished Half Moon Friends (adorable, so much heart, so hilarious- one of my favourites this year)..

            And then Night Goblin, weekly dose of Knowing Brother, Running Man and Weekly Idol, Master Key lately..

            I caught some episodes of Celeb Bros, some of Infinty Challenge and some of 1N2D..

            I am sure I am missing out on some more..
