lesbiassparrow: (feminist avocado)

I'm going to preface this by saying that I know that a lot of what I like and and don't like is all about my taste.  But it's my LJ so I am about to do the mad egomaniac thing and talk about it anyway.  (Also, as a person who doesn't actually produce fanfic beyond the odd tiny rubbishy story, it is a bit cheeky of me to complain about other people's writing).

Last night I gave in and finally watched the Kiera Knightly Pride and Prejudice. I don't have a lot of reactions, beyond that the Bennets were a very grubby family.  I know it is more authentic than shiny clean people, but, still, there was much grubbiness. And pigs in the house at one point.  And I never did work out what Mr. Darcy had done to deserve having that rat take up residence in his hair.

Most of the time I felt that if you wanted to make a gothic love story with the moors and all that, Wuthering Heights is the book you're looking for. Not Pride and Prejudice.  

Despite this I didn't hate it or anything, but it did have the feeling of a film that really hadn't worked out what it was doing at lot of the time.  And Kiera Knightly should be allowed to bash over the head whoever designed the costumes for putting her in some of the most unflattering outfits ever.  

And  tonight I saw X-Men 3
