Favorite P&P 2005 Videos

I am unabashedly and unashamedly a diehard fan of the 2005 cinematic adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. As directed by Joe Wright, and starring Matthew Macfadyen as Mr. Darcy and Kiera Knightley as Elizabeth Bennet, I still to this day, twelve years later, believe it is the best version, EVER. At least to me! This movie… Continue Reading

A Tribute to Gene Wilder

A Tribute to Gene Wilder

I was deeply saddened to hear of the death of Gene Wilder. Granted, he hasn’t been in anything recently, and indeed his wealth of classic movies will endure forever, yet it is always a shame when someone so supremely talented passes on. Rest in peace, Mr. Wilder, hopefully in the company of your beloved wife… Continue Reading

Ladyhawke & Ever After: Romantic Movies with a Medieval Twist

Ladyhawke & Ever After: Romantic Movies with a Medieval Twist

Today I am sharing two of my favorite happily-ever-after romance movies, both set in an indeterminate past with a Medieval flavor. One is clearly fantasy laced, while the other is a well-known fairytale given a rational explanation. Each have humor, fantastic supporting characters, a fair amount of suspense, and the oh-so-necessary celebratory kiss. Both are “must-see”… Continue Reading
