Last week, went to see two movies in Sathyam. 'The chronicles of Narnia' and 'Pride & Prejudice'. Narnia was kind of a let-down. Actually it was good but was not great. Story telling was the best part of it but the story is kind of a fantasy in a fantasy and that was not digestable (at least to me!). Sibi liked the lion (but likes Alex the lion in
'Pride & Prejudice' with Keira Knightley was much better than I expected. Darcy could've been better but the Bennet's were actually depicted well. Its amazing that I am watching versions and versions of this same story and it never bores me down (or my wife either). If there is a family novel (like the songs in Tamil movies!), 'P&P' will win hands down in our family at least. As much as I like Lizzie, J likes Darcy. This movie version is a must watch, if you've read the novel a hundred times or have a hardback and 4 or 5 paperbacks of the same novel or watched the BBC version (which runs 6 hours!) tens of times. We qualify on all the essentials and it was a terrific experience to watch it on screen.
