Comments: First Impressions

Sigh....Colin Firth will always be Mark Darcy to least my favorite one. I'll have to take a peek at this one though. A stable of Mark Darcy's isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Mark Darcy is in Bridget Jones' Diary. Mr. Darcy in P&P is Fitzwilliam Darcy.

I didn't care for McFadyen much; he lacked the intensity and... sort of regalness that Darcy needs. I liked the casting pretty well in this one, though, except for the dad. Ugh.

I watched it for the third time last night (twice in the theater) and this time around I was most annoyed by the way they'd build up like they were going to deliver a line straight from the book and then veer off into more modern speech patterns after all.

Still, a very pretty movie. I loved the dance scenes and the light especially. And Mr. Collins is a RIOT.

Colin Firth will always be Mr Darcy to me, but Matthew MacFadyen wasn't bad, once I got over him not being Tom on MI-5. They really got the flavor and tone of the book but the close ups of Keira Knightly drove me crazy!
