Ranking 7 Pride and Prejudice Related Screen Adaptations (Modern Retellings/Inspired of/Variations from Top Favorite to Least Favorite)

With Pride and Prejudice and Zombies movie now showing in US theaters nationwide (I haven't seen the movie yet, but will do very soon and post my review of it here, once I've seen it) and having seen almost every P&P adaptations ever made, I thought I'd compile and rank (from my current top favorite to least favorite) here, 7 (modern retellings/inspired of/variations) TV & Film screen adaptations of Jane Austen's classic Pride and Prejudice novel sans the 4 main standard P&P (1940, 1980, 1995, and 2005) adaptations. They are not included here on this list because this post is all about the variations and modern take aspect of Austen's P&P. I'll probably do a separate post on the standard ones (or combine both) next time.

On TV Tonight: Watch Penelope Wilton on Season 6 - Episode 6 of Downton Abbey

Tonight Downton Abbey ( co-star as Isobel Crawley) continues its sixth and final season on PBS Masterpiece with Episode 6 at 9/8c.

Downton Abbey, the award-winning series from Julian Fellowes, spans 12 years of gripping drama centered on a great English estate on the cusp of a vanishing way of life. Nearly six years ago, America fell in love with Downton Abbey's Granthams and their family of servants, and has followed them through sweeping change, scandals, love, ambition, heartbreak, and hope ever since. With Julian Fellowes' crackling writing and its stellar ensemble cast led by Maggie Smith, Downton Abbey delivers wit, warmth, passion and a phenomenon that is, at its heart, utterly human. Downton Abbey's final season premieres on Sunday, January 3, 2016 through March 6, 2016 on MASTERPIECE on PBS!

Whether you like it or not. Just remember, no one is forcing you to see this movie. You have a choice to either watch it or skip it.
