This was going to be a comment on Jen’s previous post, but I thought it’d be too long & I should just write an entry about it… I’ve decided to finally Netflix the BBC 2-disc, 5(?)-hour-long version of Pride and Prejudice! Are you guys proud of me?? It always seemed so daunting before. I haven’t had the attention span or time for movies lately, but Jen’s post put me in a British mood, and man, am I up for anything with Colin Firth right now. And according to Netflix, I’m going to LOVE it. :)
But do I need to re-read the book first? I read it my senior year of high school, but I don’t think I got much out of it then. Hmm, I really do sort of want to read it now. Well, I can’t get the movie until after Halloween anyway, so maybe I’ll try to read it first.
Why do I have to wait until after Halloween? Because you HAVE to watch scary, thrilling, and/or suspenseful movies on Halloween! I’m trying to decide what I should watch. I’m already planning on Wait Until Dark, a very suspenseful movie from the ’60s starring Audrey Hepburn & Alan Arkin.
I have a lot of Hitchcock movies on tape that I’m considering, but do you have any suggestions? Feel free to suggest super-scary films, but I’ll admit in advance that I can’t watch any of those because I live alone. I can only do those during the day. And sometimes not even then. I watched The Exorcism of Emily Rose one day last year in broad daylight & it freaked me out. But I really liked it and I watched it again when I wasn’t alone.
So to sum up this very rambly post, BBC Pride and Prejudice after Halloween = a go! Halloween movie suggestions? Leave a comment!
