From the corner booth...

Have you ever seen the classic Jane Austin's Pride and Prejudice featuring Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle (both also in The King's Speech). It's a long and great movie (6 VHS tapes' worth!) and worth every second.

Fast forward to last night.

I was scrolling through the cable guide looking for something to put on the TV. I ran across the title "Pride and Prejudice". Except add the words "and Zombies" to the end of that title! I couldn't help but think "What a stupid movie this has got to be!". Except that it wasn't. It was a pretty well-produced and *serious* movie, featuring Lily James ("Rose" from Downton Abbey) and Sam Riley. It followed most of the plot themes from the original story but added zombies into the mix. Technically, I suppose, it was a horror movie, but I thought it was rather tame for that genre and that left a lot of room for acting. Considering that I generally don't like horror flicks, I like this one!

See you on the dance floor.
