    Didn't care for the movie. (Although I'd watch it again just for Colin Firth.) The book was good, though.

    Given that you're quote is completely lost on me, I'd say yes.

    You'll never think of Beethoven as Beethoven anymore, either.

    Ain't it the truth... funny thing, DH and I were just talking about that movie this weekend, and in so many words, I told him the same thing. I've seen it, he hasn't.

    i felt the same way after the first viewing.

    i wonder why it happens that i like something later on which i did not like the first go-round. maybe just the frame of mind i was in at the time?

    i'd recently read the book, which i really liked. maybe it was just that it couldn't compare when the story was so fresh in my mind at the time.

    Agree. I liked that movie a lot. Very interesting directing. And Colin Firth. Yum.

    I think I just really loved the book, and didn't feel it could compare.

    (Completely OT, but oh well...if you liked "Girl With a Pearl Earring", try "Girl in Hyacinth (sp?) Blue.")

    Blood Diamond - loved it
    Mystery Men - loved it
    The Man Who Would Be King - an older flick (1975), but worth the watch, IMO

    Light reading, but interesting storytelling.

    Er...bot...no new, good movies seen recently. Want to see Shrek 3...want to see Pirates 3.

    I am not surprised that we both like Colin Firth. Really not surprised, my dear twin.
    That reminds me. Has anyone seen the Jane Eyre BBC production? I've seen a couple of Jane Eyre films and I think I like the BBC production most.

    Doesn't surprise me, either.

    Haven't seen Jane Eyre. Own BBC's Pride and Prejudice, though.

    i saw jane eyre... some time ago... i think it was the BBC version... liked it.

    liked the book better, but that's usually the case, ay? :D

    If that's the case with J.E., too, then I'm staying the hell away from the movie.

    yah, but i could be wrong... if the BBC production of J.E. was different as as good as pride & prejudice... so worth seeing, y'know?

    I don't think it's as good as the P&P BBC production. THAT one was a keeper. (I own it too.) But it was still good. J.E. and Rochester are played by fitting actors, I think, and because it's a mini series instead of just a couple of hours in a movie, they can expand on the dialogue and scenery, which is always good.

    Don't remember that bit.

    Huh. It's been years since I've seen that movie. I should watch it again.

    peach, i tried to find that hyacinth movie at imdb.com... no luck... you sure that's the title?

    Sorry, my bad.

    I don't think it's been made into a movie. I was commenting on the book. And, yes, that's the title.

    Moo moo.
