Pride & Prejudice Movie Fans Live Tweets on Twitter (Part 5)

Image
Last Saturday (July 25th) night and early Sunday (July 26th) morning, there was another back-to-back (as always) airing of Joe Wright's 2005Pride & Prejudice movie starring Keira Knightley & Matthew Macfadyen on TV, on Oxygen channel. I almost missed watching and live-tweeting this movie as I was out of town this past weekend. Glad I still made it and was able to live-tweet the first airing of the movie. Just got home earlier tonight. So, I'm late in posting this here. I previously posted part 4 and part 3. Then, I posted part 2 of this when it aired back-to-back on Bravo and had first posted about this last May 24th, when it aired twice in a row on Oxygen. I guess this will be a series of posts whenever this movie is broadcast on TV (but of course, it depends, If and when I get a chance to see and live tweet it). I said on twitter I may or may not watch this as I was out of town and wasn't sure I would be able to watch and live tweet it. Fortunately, I made it…

Pride & Prejudice Movie Fans Live Tweets on Twitter (Part 4)

Image
Last Friday (July 10th) night and early Saturday (July 11th) morning, there was another back-to-back (as always) airing of Joe Wright's 2005Pride & Prejudice movie starring Keira Knightley & Matthew Macfadyen on TV, back on Oxygen channel. This would've been part 5, but I missed the E! broadcast late last month. It aired twice as well. I previously posted part 3 here, and posted part 2 of this when it aired back-to-back on Bravo and had first posted about this last May 24th, when it aired twice in a row on Oxygen. I guess this will be a series of posts whenever this movie is broadcast on TV (but of course, it depends, If and when I get a chance to see and live tweet it). So, that Friday night, I watched and I live tweeted during both airings (starting from 8:05pm and at 11:15 pm East Coast Time), since it was on earlier and as always, I had a lot fun with other fans who live tweeted and stayed up until after midnight to watch this movie again (with all 3 of thes…

Pride & Prejudice (2005) - Modified in Form But Not In Essence

Image
I am always baffled and downright mystified by how many self-described Austen fans disparage the 2005 feature film adaptation ofPride and Prejudice. It’s understandable that many, including myself, have a deep and abiding affection for a beloved work of fiction and that this same affinity yields very strong feelings. However, what I don’t quite comprehend is the reasoning behind the disdain, which can be frequently assigned to purists and/or devotees of the seminal 1995 BBC/A&E mini-series. First and foremost an adaptation can't possibly be an exact replica. Film is an entirely different medium and it needn't be precise in order to have merit.
