BBC's Pride n Prejudice has got to be on e of the best adaptations of all times.
They had the best best star cast and sets..Since then I have become a huge fan of the screenwriter Andrew Davies...
Colin Firth was a treat to watch.. the expressions, reactions, and the transformation was simply super...
Bring on anything P n P .. am up for it..
This is one adaptation you can call indeed an adaptation. You see, HP has let me down sometimes with the maneuvering of the books in the movies and so has the 2005 P&P movie, this hasn't. This is precisely the book's, and might I add - wondrously enacted! Naturally, now when I read P&P, I have these characters in my head, and their benchmark expressions!
The HP movies, despite being really good with an amazing cast, did let me down many times when they mis-represented important scenes and completely skipped out on others.
And I can't even think of the 2005 P&P without rolling my eyes. Sorry if any of you are fans, but when it comes to movie adaptations, I find it really important that they stick to characterization and important details of the book, and the 2005 P&P really messed up the story big time...the actor chosen to play Darcy was one of the worst...Lizzie and Jane were okay, but they were nowhere near as experienced as the ones from BBC, and they made Bingley a total perv. Do any of you guys recall the scene where he 'playfully' spanked Jane? Dude, I was like...
I am in complete agreement with your view on PnP 2005.. it sucked big time.. Mathew Macfayden?!!? what were they thinking... >sigh<
Colin Firth has cast such a long shadow with his portrayal of Darcy that measuring up would be almost impossible nee impossible..
There wasn't one scene I liked in the movie.. it didn't show class, sophistication et al.. seemed to me they made it for the heck of making it.. I hated the last scene by the lake/fountain.. that was utter crapp...they took too many liberties with the screenplay and the locations were so shabby...I could go on but. .. i hope you get the picture...I was massively disappointed in it...
