Pure unadulterated awesome headed to a theater near you come June 7th. I love the Emma Thompson/Kenneth Branagh version so much that I haven't ever found myself longing for another. But, come on! Nothing will keep me from seeing this one. How about you?
I can't quit Jennifer Echols . Not that I really try that hard, but I read her new ones and often feel as though I'm still searching for that one in possession of that certain something that will make me feel the way Going Too Far did. Like I couldn't put it it down. And definitely like I didn't hate either of the main characters after the fact. Well, I found it with Such a Rush . I read this 300+ pager in a single night, which clears up the question of whether or not I couldn't put it down. And I finished it definitely not hating either of the main characters. I didn't finish it loving them both unreservedly, though. I loved Leah with my whole heart from page one and that never changed. My feelings regarding one of the Hall brothers remain complicated. More to come on this in a bit. On a side note, I'm delighted that Such a Rush is Ms. Echols' hardcover debut. It's a meticulously designed book, a pleasure to hold in my hands as I stayed up way
oh wow! How did I not even know about this? I'll definitely be going even though I too adore the KB, ET so much.ReplyDelete
Exactly. It won't replace ET/KB in my affections. But I cannot miss it.Delete
This trailer is so amazing. Who thought of putting that song together with that trailer? It's just dissonant enough to stand out. And OF COURSE I will be seeing this one, thank you Joss Whedon.ReplyDelete
Also, I keep on hearing about this Emma Thompson/Kenneth Branagh. I think I need to go track it down...
MY THOUGHTS EXACTLY. That song, Steph!Delete
Dude. Go watch the Thompson/Branagh version already. So, so good.
SO excited for this one. I mean, it even has Nathan Fillion. I adore the Kenneth Branagh version A LOT, so when I showed it to one of my roommates a few years ago and she didn't like it, that should've been my first clue that it wasn't going to work out between us roommate-wise :)ReplyDelete
It really has Nathan Fillion. WIN.Delete
Wow. Yeah, that roommate situation was never gonna work for you. Pity.
Joss Whedon? Nathan Fillion??? I'm already in the front row of the theater with just the mention of those two names!ReplyDelete
I'm a HUUUUUUUGE Shakespeare fan, so I'm always up for seeing a new rendition of his works. I have to say, as much as I admire Joss Whedon, I'm not sure anyone will ever play a better Beatrice and Benedick than Emma Thompson and Kenneth Branagh. I mean, c'mon! Branagh was born for this stuff!ReplyDelete
Yeah, I'm not anticipating it will top that version, because hello SO perfect. He really was born to play that role, I think. As was she.Delete
But this looks fun. And I do love the two leads.
*squee* Everything about this (*cough*NathanFillion*cough*) makes me happy. And on the upside, Reed Diamond *has* to be a better Don Pedro than Keanu Reeves.ReplyDelete
He just *has* to be.Delete
So I feel stupid. My daughter pointed out to me that Keanu was Don John, who's played by Sean Maher (*squee*, but not in the trailer. What's with that?!?). Still. Got to be better than Keanu.Delete
Lol. Good eye she has. Sean Maher is playing Don John?! YAY!!Delete
Yep! I may love the old version, but I cannot wait to see this one. Heck, it's Joss Whedon--I'll be able to get my boyfriend to take me to see Shakespeare!ReplyDelete
*hyperventilates* I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS. I can't even. It looks soo amazing ahhhhhReplyDelete
That is all.
Lol. We are in accord.Delete
