My Thoughts:

-    The 1995 version is WAY better! This was dull and awful.

-    The camera work throughout the film drove me crazy! There were really bad monkey cam moments, especially in the beginning and the end. Why did we need to be so close to everyone's faces? The costumes and scenery is nice, lets see some of that! I hated just seeing giant  heads for most of the film.

-    The picture quality is pretty bad for 2007.

-    The story strayed from the book. I hate that! The 1995 version follows the book better.

-    The ending made me so angry. It just drags on and on. The letter isn't as awesome. The fact that Anne is running all over town was annoying. The kiss was SO awkward. It looked liked she was going to eat him. Stupid stupid ending!

-    Something about Anne bugged me. I don't know exactly what it is, but I didn't like the actress for her. I kept thinking she needed to close her mouth. She just lets it hang open.

-    Although the Captain Wentworth in this was better looking than the 1995 Captain, the acting wasn't better. The acting in the 1995 version was better overall.

-    The longing looks and glances weren't there :(

-    I was bored for a lot of this movie. It just didn't grab me or keep my interest. It felt like the whole movie took forever.

-    Skip this and go watch the 1995 version. It is much more satisfying.


  1. I guess I need to see the older version before I can truly comment!

  2. " I kept thinking she needed to close her mouth. She just lets it hang open."

    I read that, then scrolled back up and laughed out loud because she has her mouth hanging open in the picture!

  3. Ha! You're hilarious. I love how passionate you are about things. I guess I'm the same way, though, even if we're passionate about different things.

  4. I never would have thought that the BBC version would have been worse! I'll get the 1995 version :) I actually haven't seen the movie of this one yet although I've read the book. I need to check it out. Love the review :)

  5. Yes! The camera work makes me dizzy through much of this movie! And the way they changed stuff? Terrible idea! The letter is less significant, the way Anne is running is just ridiculous, and the kiss is WAY awkward.

    All that being said, I do have to confess something. I own this version simply because I like watching Rupert Penry-Jones. Does that make me shallow? Yeah, it totally does. But I like watching him! Can't be helped.

    The 1995 version is MUCH better in terms of story and acting though. So that one has much more of my heart than this one. I want another update of this story! With great actors, great acting, and staying true to the story! Pretty please, won't somebody fund this?
