Thought on Jane Eyre

-I've seen silent movies louder than this, and not nearly as polite.

HAHA! I haven't actually seen this movie, but now part of me wants to see it just to fully understand what you mean by that.

The preceding ad was paid for, who approved that message.

"It's all a goddamn meat parade," says I (quoting George C. Scott).

You know, I've been avoiding this, because I've seen so many versions (one starring Scott!) that all one can do is compare and contrast, like versions of Hamlet. Rather than do that, I decided not to work up any enthusiasm for going (and thus eliminating any need for an "Eyre/Err/Air" pun to title it.

The world is better off, methinks.

If this hadn't hit theatres right before my finals started I might have seen it.

Well that was poetic, seriously. I want to quote you on this now.

(And I need to see it, but ugh I hate the novel so and I don't care for either Mia or Michael.)

Jane Eyre was one of my favorite books when I was in high school. The whole thing about Mr. Rochester and his crazy ass wife just really appealed to me. But I didn't understand the need for another film adaptation.

M. Huf: I'll be looking out for a review or whatnot. Oh, and that's your nickname now. Long names make me hurt my dear keyboard.

Yojimbo: Until seeing this, I'd do away with puns and just say Jane *phlegm*.

Fitz: Go, man, go.

Andrew: What? WHAT? You don't love Fassy!? I thought I knew you, man...

Amber: Because obviously we need progressively prettier, dreamier casting. Also, someone's got to give jobs to the guys who cut trailers into harrowing love triangle romances.

Period pieces bore me TO DEATH. But I will watch this because of my future straight husband.
