Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016)

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Poster

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.”

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Book

First there was a book and now there is a film.  Again I have failed this blog.  I had beautiful, beautiful plans to review the book and to write a lot of posts leading up to the film and then cap it all off with a film review.  I did none of these things.  I’d like to say that I’ll change my ways and start posting more but that didn’t quite work out last time, so I’ll just be honest and hope I at least get another post in before years end.  But we aren’t here to talk about what a terrible job of blogging I’m doing, we are here to talk about Pride and Prejudice, and Zombies.

The movie has a cold open in which Mr. Darcy investigates a possible zombie disturbance at the Featherstone house.  Darcy uses flies (which are attracted to dead flesh) to find a newly turned zombie hiding in the party.  He kills said zombie and we then cut to a montage that explains the zombie crisis and current state of England.  We then start at the Longbourne with the Bennet girls cleaning weapons when a telegram comes informing them that Netherfield has been let by a young Mr. Bingley…

From here we switch back and forth between a straight telling of Pride and Prejudice with some zombie aspect sprinkled in here and there.  Besides the occasional zombie attack and plot points dealing with the zombie war the movie is mostly unaltered Pride and Prejudice.  If I were to make a split I’d say 70% Jane Austen and 30% zombies and added material.  Most of the dialogue is exactly as it is in the book and in general all the major plot points are left as they are.  I was actually very surprised at how much Austen made it through the addition of zombies.  I wouldn’t suggest it but if you were a high schooler assigned to read Pride and Prejudice this might actually make for an adaptation you could use in place of reading the book.

Here are some of the plot points from the book that (more or less) make it through unaltered, most of which with the original dialogue:

  • The initial ball at Meryton in which Elizabeth overhears Mr. Darcy insult her, largely intact
  • Jane visiting Netherfield and getting sick from the ride over
  • Mr. Collins coming to Longbourne and awkwardly proposing and getting rejected by Elizabeth
  • Elizabeth going to Rosings to visit Charlotte Lucas
  • Mr. Darcy awkwardly proposing and getting rejected by Elizabeth in Rosings
  • Mr. Darcy writing Elizabeth explaining why he hates Mr. Wickham and apologizing for his treatment of Jane
  • Lady Catherine confronting Elizabeth about marrying Mr. Darcy
  • Lydia running off with Mr. Wickham
  • The double wedding of Darcy / Elizabeth and Bingley / Jane

The biggest differences were around Mr. Wickham who kidnaps Lydia in order to lure Mr. Darcy.  Pretty much the last 1/4th of the movie is devoted to tying up the whole zombie subplot.  The gist of the zombie plot is that these zombies only become  undead and mindless after eating human brains.  There is s sect of zombies that eat pig brains instead of human brains and managed to maintain their sanity.  Mr. Wickham discovers this sect and proposes a truce to work with the zombies, to get them pig brains and have humans live with the zombies.  It gets a lot more spoilery from here so we’ll just leave it at that.  I know it seems like big differences from the Jane Austen story but I can’t stress enough how much Pride and Prejudice made it in the movie.  When they aren’t dealing with zombies they rarely mention them and the dialogue is generally word for word from the book.

So what did I think of the movie?

Overall I enjoyed the movie and will probably buy it when it comes out on Blu-ray.  The acting was actually done really well and for as silly as a premise as this movie is everyone is playing it very seriously.  When there are emotional beats in the movie the actors are really giving it their all and really putting forth an effort.  The expositionary zombie intro felt really unnecessary.  They spend a lot of time in this movie world building around the zombies that never really pays off.  There is a whole sub plot about Chinese vs. Japanese fighting styles that is mentioned 2 or 3 times before being entirely abandoned.  I can buy in that there are zombies in this world and that our cast is some how trained to fight them.  The over explaining just points out how ridiculous the zombies are.  The movie would have been better off just explaining it once and not digging in to it.  Adding fighting to classic Pride and Prejudice scenes was really great.  When Darcy insults Elizabeth during the first proposal she straight kicks him in the chest and it is really satisfying.  I said it before but if you were just trying to slog through major parts of Pride and Prejudice as they were written, this movie is a decent adaptation.  Overall I still think it was a fun idea to add Zombies to such a classic work and this movie gives you enough to be entertained without straying too far from the source material.

Lastly I am obsessed with Funko POP! figures and they have released a set of six for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, which I will be most definitely picking up.  If you haven’t seen Pride and Prejudice and Zombies yet you should get on it.  It hasn’t been doing too well at the box office (sadly) and will likely not be there for much longer.

Pride and Prejudice Episode VI: The Half Blood Prince

16 May

Pride and Prejudice 1995

We’ve made it to the end! It only took me almost two years to actually finish watching it but I have finally watched the entire 1995 Pride and Prejudice BBC mini-series.  It’s been a long journey, there have been two Fast and Furious movies, and at least 5 seasons of The Voice.  Anyway now that I am back on track I’m going to continue to write something every week.

We pick up in this episode where the last ended, with Mr. Wickham agreeing to marry Lydia for an unknown sum of money (presumed to be paid by Mr. Gardinder).  Mrs. Bennet has entirely forgiven/forgotten any transgressions and is ecstatic.  Every one else in the family, not so much.  Wickham and Lydia come back to Longbourn and Wickham tries his best to lay the charm on everyone but Lizzy is not having it.  She subtly lets Mr. Wickham know that she knows about him and his past and does not approve.  Lydia manages to be a huge cunt and piss off everyone.  It really is as if she ran away and got married simply to rub it in all her sisters faces.

Mr. Bingley returns to Netherfield!  All the Bennet ladies are pretty stoked even though Jane tries to play it off that she doesn’t really care.  We see a cool scene with Mr. Darcy telling Mr. Bingley that he kept it from him that while he was in London Jane was also there.  Bingley is mad but gets Mr. Darcy’s blessing in him pursuing Jane.  Mr. Bingley immediately goes to see Jane and Miss Bennet slowly makes the daughters leave so they can be alone.  Lizzy and Kitty are excited, Mary gives zero fucks.

Part 6 - Mary Zero Fucks

Next we get a surprise visit from Lady Catherine De Bourgh to Longbourn.  We have seen Lady Catherine being terrible before but this is truly her shinning moment.  She begins by insulting Mrs. Bennet and everyone in the house and asks Lizzy to take a walk with her.  On their walk we find out the actual reason for her visit.  Unknown to Lizzy she had been told that Mr. Darcy was to propose to Lizzy.  Lady Catherine wanted to confirm and shut this down.  Now it wouldn’t be Lady Catherine if she hadn’t done this in the most insulting and demeaning fashion possible.  Seeing as Lady Catherine is being the biggest bitch imaginable Lizzy toys with her a bit before finally admitting that she is not actually engaged with Mr. Darcy.  When Lady Catherine tries to make her promise to reject any proposal that Mr. Darcy might make in the future Lizzy refuses.

Part 6 - Picture 2

Lizzy has her most gangsta moment her and tells her “You have insulted me in every possible way, and can now have nothing further to say.”  aka, bitch be gone.  Lady Catherine has a huge hissy fit and leaves.  Apparently she brought her daughter along with her who looks like she is going to die at any moment.

Part 6 - Picture 3

After this Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy make a surprise visit to Longbourn and decide to take a walk into town.  Mr. Darcy makes one last attempt to Lizzy and asks if her feelings are the same as they were or if they have changed, if they have changed he will not bother her again.  Lizzy confesses they have and that she loves him!  They become engaged and Mr. Darcy gets Mr. Bennet’s permission.  Mr. Bennet is concerned since he believes Lizzy hates him but Lizzy assures him she is in love with Mr. Darcy.

Part 6 - Double Wedding

Also in attendance to the wedding is Mr. Bingley’s sister who’s resting bitch face is amazing.

Part 6 - Resting Bitch Face

Every one is in attendance of the wedding with the only exception being Lydia and Mr. Wickham and Lady Catherine and her deathly daughter.

Thoughts

Mrs. Bennet’s ability to forget what just happened is pretty amazing.  Mrs. Bennet goes from Lydia being the worst and ruining the entire family to her being the model daughter.  Mr. Bennet at least is still pissed and although the drama is over, will likely hate Mr. Wickham for the rest of his life.

Lydia is the worst.  She has at no point learned from her mistake or what the effect of her actions could have had on her sisters.  She not only doesn’t feel bad but is actively bragging and boasting about her marriage to all her sisters.  It seems like her only goal in her entire marriage was to rub it in her sisters face.

Lady Catherine is amazing in her ability to be a cunt to everyone.  I don’t think she has the ability to feel empathy for anyone but her self.  The wedding scene was pretty satisfying when it showed a shot of every one in attendance and then cut to Lady Catherine and her daughter alone in Rosenings, where the pair will assumedly die alone.

Part 6 - Picture 6

In the end I liked a lot of things about this version of Pride and Prejudice.  Being that it is 5-6 hours long as you would guess they don’t leave anything out.  They also include a lot of other moments that weren’t in the book or in the 2005 film version.  I liked the thoroughness and I liked seeing things through some of the other character’s perspective.  I think that the performance of Lady Catherine and Mr. Collins was the best I’ve seen so far.  I felt that the performance of Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy was great but not as good as the 2005 Film.  If you are a big Pride and Prejudice fan this mini series is for you, and likely you have already seen it.  If you so-so fan then you might want to avoid this version.  It is very long and honestly the story of Pride and Prejudice just doesn’t require 6 hours of material.

There were really some stand out moments but overall it felt more like a chore to watch the entire series than it was sometime I really got into.  If you want to watch it the entire series is available now on Amazon Prime for members, however it is no longer available on Netflix streaming.

Pride and Prejudice Episode V: Fast Five

10 May

Pride and Prejudice 1995

This episode starts with the meeting of Lizzy and Georgiana Darcy.  Mr. Darcy’s feelings come out through this meeting as Georgiana is unaware of any of the arguing or awkwardness between them.  She only knows of Lizzy what her brother has told her and it is clear he speaks of her in nothing but the highest regards.  Lizzy adores Georgiana and once again gets a view of the life she could have had with Darcy if she had married him.  A weird thing during both meetings between Lizzy and Georgiana is that they are basically wearing the same outfit both times.  I don’t know if this is on purpose or if there just wasn’t that many options back in the day.

Part 5 - Same Dress Collage

During their second meeting after Lizzy leaves Miss Bingley starts talking mad shit about Lizzy and tries to get Mr. Darcy to join in.  Mr. Darcy has none of this and says that Lizzy is one of the most handsome women he’s ever set his eyes on.

Part 5 - Miss Bingley's Resting Bitch Face Skitch

Lizzy then gets a letter that Lydia has took off with Mr. Wickham and set to scandalize the entire family.  Mr. Darcy happens to come by right after she hears the news which Lizzy tells him and is very distressed.  Darcy assumedly goes off to go find him and see if he can help but Lizzy takes this to mean he is disgusted with her and her entire family and that her chances with Darcy are now completely over.

Lizzy goes back home and suggests to Jane that Lydia’s behavior isn’t only going to hurt them going forward but was the cause of her relationship with Mr. Bingley drying up.  Mr. Bennet later comes home after trying to find Lydia in London with no luck.  What they know now is that she is with Wickham and the two are unmarried and presumably have no real plans to actually marry.

Mr. Collins comes to the house after hearing the news.  When Kitty sees him she takes off wanting nothing to do with him and later on is watching from the window which was hilarious.  This Mr. Collins scene could very well be the greatest moment in the entire series.  He manages to insult them to such a level that at one point I started to think it was art.

Part 5 - Photobomb Kitty Skitch

Lizzy finally suggest that since they are so ruined and terrible that Mr. Collins should probably leave as to not tarnish his own reputation.  He agrees and is thankful for her concern of his reputation and takes off.  Next we get a letter from Lizzy’s aunt and uncle that Mr. Wickham will marry Lydia for a portion of her inheritance when he dies and a small yearly sum.  Mr. Bennet knows that his brother must have paid a lot of money to make such terms possible.  We know who the real savior was but we don’t find out until part 6.

Thoughts

In the book and other versions so far Mr. Bennet has been a real bitch.  He still doesn’t know what to do and often uses humor to defuse serious situations.  In this adaptation however we got to see a side of him I had never seen before.  Once he gets home without Lydia he is determined to do better and prevent his other daughters from making the same mistake.  He apologizes to Lizzy for not listening to her and he accepts responsibility of letting Lydia go while knowing how uncontrollable she is.  I thought this was cool and it was good to see a version of Mr. Bennet that actually learns something.

Since her engagement confrontation with Darcy Lizzy is now fully aware of what others think of her family and is trying to stop them from destroying them selves.  Her awareness though could cause a lot of strife between Jane and her sisters if she’s too caviler about this.  When Jane comes to talk to her about what she meant when she said that Lydia’s behavior is causing much more damage than she is seeing she quickly covers up and deflects the question.  I think this was good of her and that Jane knowing that her chance with Mr. Bingley was ruined by her sister would only cause Jane more pain and anger.

Lydia, Lydia, Lydia.  Lizzy is only a few years older than Lydia but there is an ocean of common sense that separates the two.  Lydia naivety that Mr. Wickham’s intentions are pure is amazing.  She doesn’t even consider that something could be wrong or that the effect of her actions could have on her other sisters.  She just wants to go out and about with her shiny new beau and doesn’t once stop to think that it is odd that he won’t let her go out side or stand too close to the windows.

Pride and Prejudice Episode III: Tokyo Drift

25 Apr

072113_2151_PrideandPre1.jpg

Episode two ended with Mr. Collins proposal to Lizzy and episode 3 picks up with Lizzy visiting Charlotte Lucas who has just become engaged with Mr. Collins. Lizzy thinks this is horrible and that Charlotte has made a huge mistake but Charlotte tells Lizzy to step correct. She says that even though Mr. Collins isn’t attractive to her she’s not the romantic type and honestly thinks she’ll be as happy with him as with any other man. She tells Lizzy that he can afford her a comfortable lifestyle, is a good man, and that there is more to life than just being in love.

The Bingley’s leave Netherfield and Jane is heartbroken. Lizzy tries to cheer her up and tell her that they’ll be back soon but you can tell that Jane already knows that this means her chances with Mr. Bingley are over. The Bennet crew go to a party in which Mrs. Bennet talks mad shit about everyone in attendance and Lydia is extremely giddy / boy crazy and annoys everyone. Later when they get home Mary, the unlikely voice of reason, drops a deep quote about how you shouldn’t gossip and no one really listens to her.

Jane leaves Longbourn to visit her Aunt and Uncle in London. This is Lizzy’s idea since Mr. Bingley is also in London this will allow them to see each other and maybe get a marriage proposal. Jane goes to visit Caroline Bingley as soon as she arrives and gets a real annoyed unwanted vibe from her. Caroline makes an excuse to leave but promises to visit Jane in a day or two. Three weeks later Caroline finally comes to visit her and Jane realizes that Caroline has actually been her frenemy all along and has no interest in helping her get with Mr. Bingley.

Lizzie goes to Kent to visit Charlotte Lucas which a lot of things happen during this visit. First we meet Lady Catherin De Bough who is a prime example of a SOC (Sandy Old Cunt). We have seen how up her ass Mr. Collins is but once they are at Kent you really see how basically Mr. Collins entire life revolves around being her bitch. They have a real awkward dinner in which Lady Catherine is just a huge bitch to everyone. During the dinner there is some flirting/teasing between Mr. Darcy and Lizzy which is the first time you really suspect they have interest in each other. This is followed by a real awkward meeting where Mr. Darcy goes to Kent to see Lizzy. This is probably for him to propose but he loses his nerve after a little small talk and standing and sitting a lot.

The next day he comes back and proposes. Unknown to Mr. Darcy his timing could not have been shittier, because moments before Lizzy had learned that Mr. Darcy was personally responsible for discouraging Mr. Bingley from proposing to Jane. Not only that but that Mr. Darcy was bragging about it and telling people it was his great accomplishment because Bingley was in love with Jane. Needless to say Lizzie does not appreciate this so this adds a lot of gasoline to the fire of hate she already had for Mr. Darcy. Mr. Darcy also fucks up on all kinds of levels during the proposal and manages to insult her even further. Lizzy keeps her cool at first and just turns him down but when Mr. Darcy presses her she lets him know how she really feels and the gloves come off. The episode then ends with a rejection of the proposal and both having more disdain than ever for one another.

Deeper Thoughts

I’ve always liked the Lizzy/Charlotte scene in the book because the contrast shown between Elizabeth’s and Charlotte’s interpretation of Mr. Collins marriage proposal. Lizzy balks and runs immediately hearing his proposal and cannot fathom any one marrying Mr. Collins. Charlotte on the other hand realizes her prospects limits and while she has no romantic interest in Mr. Collins that he can provide her with other comforts and that she can live a fulfilled life with him. When Lizzy goes to Charlotte to express how sorry she feels for her it shows a real lack of maturity and understanding on Lizzy’s part. Lizzy has a hard time with empathy and understanding things from other people’s prospective.

Lady Catherine De Bough is really something else. Initially I assumed her relationship with Mr. Collins is that of one feeling sorry for him and supporting him because of his praises. Here you get a glimpse that Mr. Collins is a pet project for her and that she gets as much enjoyment out of criticizing and injecting herself in his life as he gets from her wealth. Her SOCness (sandy old cunt) has really left her with no friends and she has to provide for Mr. Collins just to have a sad sack around the home she can bitch as while he kisses her ass. What annoys me the most about Lady Catherine is her endless critique and advice on things that she has no idea what she’s talking about. When she is criticizing Lizzie for her piano playing and giving her unsolicited advice she throws in that she never learned the piano herself.

Mr. Bennet once again shows how useless he is. Now Mrs. Bennet is clearly hysterical most of the time and I suspect that Mr. Bennet in some ways enjoys seeing her like this. When she expresses a real fear that they will in fact lose the house after Charlotte is engaged to Mr. Collins his only comfort is “Let’s hope for better things!” I think Mr. Bennet is a decent guy but he just is incapable of dealing with emergencies and shuts down when trouble occurs.

Again the class differences she Austen’s lack of experience and empathy for the real lower class. When Mrs. Bennet is wailing around about her nerves and how poor and desolate their situation is there are at least 3 people working at their house hold cooking and cleaning. Sure they don’t have the money of Mr. Darcy but they are also doing pretty damn good.

Stray Thoughts

 

  • Jennifer Ehle is growing on me but still don’t love her as Lizzy #notmylizzie
  • I ain’t saying Mr. Wickham is a gold digger but he got real interested real quick when it became known the red head at the party was getting a fat inheritance
  • What war is going on that has all these military officers in town?
  • Whats up with the old lady with the sleeves at the party? The camera stays on her a long time and nothing comes of it
  • Mary be dropping deep knowledge on every one!

Drinking Game

 

  • Every time Mr. Collins fawns over Lady Catherine, double drink if he the fireplace is mentioned
  • Whenever Mrs. Bennett cries
  • Whenever Mrs. Bennett speaks of her nerves
  • Mary rocks the piano
  • When Caroline Bingley gives Jane a look that she wishes she was dead
  • When Darcy is ringed in to the Collins house
  • Someone is shown writing a letter
  • Lady Catherine De Bough does something bitchy

Pride Hard 2.0

22 Apr

New Skitch

It’s been over two years since my last post, I have been failing on my mission Pride and Prejudice mission.  Over the last few years I’ve been getting really into comic books and its been my hobby and main focus.  I’ve been living and breathing comics so it’s been what I have been motivated to write about and share.

I started by just putting those blog posts here on my Pride and Prejudice blog but that doesn’t make any sense and is just confusing for everyone.  So a few months ago I decided to make a second blog dedicated to two of my favorite things, Comic Books and Cats.  It’s been great and I’ve been really happy with it.

However I got a mission and I need to follow through.  It’s been an exciting time for Pride and Prejudice and there are even more forms to enjoy including a new Manga and Card Game.  So I’m coming back to the game!  I’ll start off with finishing the 1995 mini-series, and then the world!

Pride and Prejudice 1995 Episode I: The Phantom Menace

21 Jul

072113_2151_PrideandPre1.jpg

Here we go…

This begins my five part series on the Pride and Prejudice mini-series from 1995 starring Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy and Jennifer Ehle as Elizabeth Bennet. This is generally considered the pen ultimate version of Pride and Prejudice with the Colin Firth being the best version of Mr. Darcy

My first impression is that it did not need to be so long. I am only on the first episode which ends with Elizabeth and Jane leaving Netherfield after Jane has recovered from her cold. So that means we have had introductions and the first two dances and then the extended stay of Jane at Netherfield. It felt a decent pace so far but I can’t imagine how they stretch the entire story over four more hours.

As the general consensus of the people being that Colin Firth is the ultimate Mr. Darcy I am leaning to agree. He does a good job of not showing too much expression during his scenes but also to have that look that he is constantly absorbing and deconstructing everything around him. I don’t quite like Jane in this version as much as I do Keria Knightly in the 2005 film version. I initially didn’t like the actress who plays Elizabeth but she’s growing on me as I was watching, however she doesn’t quite hold up to Keria Knightly. The Bennet sisters did a great job and the actress who plays Mrs. Bennet also did a great job. In this version you get a better sense of how odd and improper the entire family is. Mrs. Bennet immediately starts hating on Mr. Darcy and has a pretty awesome passive aggressive bitch out moment at Netherfield that is awkward for everyone. Lydia and Kitty are even more boy crazy in this version to the point of being obnoxious, especially at the party hosted by the Lucas’s. Mary was really well cast in this version and there is a particularly good interpretation of the piano scene with her in it. Rather than her playing at the Netherfield ball she is playing at the Lucas party and it’s her own sisters who insult her and ask her to play something else. Mrs. Bennet even joins in and it looks like Mary is about to cry before Mr. Lucas has to step in to defuse the situation. It’s a good example of how Mary is proper and boring but also how improper the rest of the family is especially in front of other people.

I really liked Charlotte Lucas in this version as well. She warns Lizzie early on that if Jane wants to get with Bingley she’s got to act even more interested than she actually is or he’s not going to know. Knowing how things end up later on if she had taken Charlotte’s advice it would have meant a lot less heart ache later on.

The portrayal of Mrs. Bennet is very interesting in this version as well. She acts a lot more improper and offensive which is more in line with how the book describes her. She not only makes an ass of herself at the Lucas party but also really lays it in deep on Darcy when she comes by to visit Jane. She knows that He’s slighted Lizzie at this point but goes much further than a little sarcasm and straight insults him. It’s a lot easier to see in this version why Darcy had thought so low of the Bennet family initially the way they are acting now. Mrs. Bennet also straight tells Jane that she wants her to take horse back so she will get sick due to the rain. That was a strange choice of her to actually tell Jane of this rather than it be part of her “master plan”. Another strange choice was that during the scene in which Miss Bingley and Jane are walking around the drawing room while Darcy is reading. Instead of him giving both explanations on why he would rather sit and let them walk around (so they can talk amongst themselves and so he can stare at that ass) he only mentions the staring at that ass portion. For such a long miniseries it seems odd to cut that part, which now just makes Darcy look like a creeper.

A minor thing that I liked was they mentioned at the Lucas’s party why the troops were there. I don’t remember them mentioning that in any other version, and it playing such a big role later on, it was nice to have at least some explanation.

Overall some of the attention to detail you get in a 5 hour miniseries is nice but it feels entirely too slow. We have so far only gotten up to Jane’s stay at Netherfield in an hour and there is just so much more to cover. The book isn’t entirely that long and doesn’t need this Lord of the Rings style over kill version.

Drinking Game Rules

  • Every time Mrs. Bennet talks about her “poor nerves”
  • Every time there is a direct quote from the book that isn’t dialogue
  • Whenever Mr. Bennet makes a sassy remark about how dumb his daughters/wife is and how smart Lizzie is
  • Whenever Lydia/Kitty mention officers, dancing, or attending a ball
  • Whenever Miss. Bingley makes a snide remark about how awful the Bennet’s are
  • Every time Darcy says something nice about Lizzie
  • Take a shot when Lizzie jumps in the mud

Thug Notes: Pride and Prejudice

Great analysis of Pride and Prejudice, or greatest analysis of Pride and Prejudice?

We give thanks to you oh great gods of the internet for bringing us this gem.
