So this is me spitting it out. Last night I watched a movie that is commonly known as the 2005 Pride & Prejudice. There is only one other movie that I have seen that made me think "What a complete waste of my time!" Incidentally, that movie also starred Jena Malone.
The historical inaccuracies!!! I mean they were so numerous and historical inaccuracies drive me crazy! And the screen writing!! All of the actors were very good......but the screen writing was (to talk like the Trolls from The Hobbit) 'WUBBISH'!!! I mean like seriously!!! They tried to fit Pride & Prejudice into 2 hours!!!! I knew before I watched it that it was going to be awful, but ugh!! Blah, blah, pluh!! Yuck! As my mom said, it felt more like 1790's American Frontier, then 1810's Regency England.
And the second proposal?!?!?!? I know that some people think it far more romantic then the 1995 second proposal, but OH MY GOODNESS!!!! THEY ARE WALKING AROUND HALF DRESSED!!!! And the cheesy lines!!! I thought that it couldn't get worse then the second proposal scene........and then we reached the very end. Guys, I love mushy, gushy, melt-me-into-a-puddle-of-goo, romantic kissing, love scenes, but THAT?!?!??!?!?! It was seriously vomit inducing!!!! Pluh!!! It was soooooo sick!!!! Afterwards, I pulled up the Second Proposal and the Meeting at Pemberley from the REAL P&P to wash out the bad taste!! Oh! it was glorious! I was rather ridiculously rapturous over Colin and Jennifer, but it was 11:45 PM, so I had legit reason for being a nut!
I did laugh through a lot of it though because of how dumb I found it. And I realized the Mr. Collins is too be Tabaqui the Jackal in the upcoming The Jungle Book: Origins movie that I am very much looking forward to. Also Rupert Friend resembled Orlando Bloom so much that I couldn't quite hate him, not that there was really anything of Wickham in it. Mary was prettier then she should have been. And the costumes?!?!?! Caroline Bingley is wearing a NIGHTGOWN at the Netherfield Ball!!!
To those of you who are reading this and very much like.....well, what I watched last night, I apologize if this offends you and I am coming across as a snob.
To those of you who agrees with me.......COME COMMISERATE WITH ME!!!!!!!
