My Top Five Favorite Jane Austen Movie Adaptations Ranked

   

 I was supposed to have a movie/mini series marathon this weekend, but I one, completely forgot, and two, really just didn't have time. So, I will be doing my favorite Jane Austen Movie Adaptations based on what I have watched in the past. Now you should know that the movies for Persuasion are not on here, since I have not gotten a chance to watch them yet. Also, these  movies are being ranked based on how much I love and enjoy them, not necessarily on accuracy or what my favorite Austen Novels are.

5. Mansfield Park (1999)

        Okay, I will give you this, the movie is really good and the cast in incredible. It's just that I have yet to watch a Mansfield Park adaptation that gets the story and the characters right. Now, I know I said that I wouldn't judge based on accuracy, and I definitely am not. This movie really is just my least favorite out of the five I will be presenting you.
          Still this movie has a great cast and really great acting, it just doesn't follow the book very well so that could get frustrating for some people. I actually watched the movie before I read the book, so I couldn't really be disappointed, but I know after reading the novel twice, I would probably notice more things that are not correct. Still though, this is a really good movie and I would recommend it!

4. Emma (1996)

         The fact that this movie is now this low in my eyes is honestly a bit weird. I love this movie, but I've recently found Jane Austen movies that I like a lot better. Still this movie is a must watch for any Austen fan in my opinion. The movie is gorgeous, and the cast is incredible.

3. Northanger Abbey (2007)

      Another movie that I watched before I read the book. I am so bad I know! (Although I am pretty sure I watched all of these movies before I read the books). Still I absolutely fell in  love with this movie! The casting is wonderful, the story is great, and it's just an overall good movie.

2. Sense and Sensibility (1995)

         Okay, I probably haven't seen this movie in years and it is still one of my favorites! This movie might not be the best adaptation of the novel, but they did a pretty good job of putting all of the information from the book into a movie. The cast is incredible and the movie is just so amazing! I really regret not getting to do my movie marathon this weekend, because I really want to watch this movie again.

1. Pride and Prejudice (2005)

https://media.giphy.com/media/NTgWoDkCAFWi4/giphy.gif
        I love this movie! Not only is this my favorite Jane Austen Movie adaptation, it is also one of my favorite movies in general. The acting is amazing, the score is beautiful, and the movie is literally one of the most stunning things I have ever watched in my life. I even watched this movie again this weekend on a whim simply because I wanted to. This movie is so good and I highly recommend it to anyone!


I hope that you enjoyed my ranking of my favorite Jane Austen movie adaptations. I had so much fun writing it and now I really need to watch these movies again!

Love,
Baleigh

Pride and Prejudice Vs. Emma

As some of you may know from my Five Favorite Classic Novels post: Emma and Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen are two of my favorite classic novels so it only felt fitting to compare them to each other for the first post for Jane Austen Month.  I just want to make it clear that I love both of these novels and that they both have things that I enjoy about them.

1. Female Leads:
          In my opinion, Jane Austen has created some of the best literary characters of all time. The main characters that she creates are no exception to this rule.
          In Pride and Prejudice, it is Elizabeth Bennet. Witty, opinionated, and basically who every Austen fan strives to be like.

https://media.giphy.com/media/jDuKjA45JfDnq/giphy.gif  She is loyal to a fault, but she isn't afraid to disagree with someone. She, however, judges people before she even really knows them (Guilty!!!). She has incredible character development though, and she isn't afraid to admit that she is wrong when…

114 Thoughts I Had While Watching the Royal Wedding

So, I got done watching the live stream for the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle! I decided to post my thoughts here for you all to see. From the hats to the adorable royal kids to just the overall happy vibes at this wedding, this wedding was a joy to watch. I hope you all enjoy my 114 Thoughts I Had While Watching the Royal Wedding. Fair warning though, some of them might not make any sense, and please forgive any bad spelling, grammar, or punctuation as I was just typing these on my phone as I went. Thank you all again for reading!
My Thoughts So many hats!!!A lot of celebs Everyone looks, or most people anyway, very happy. This music is lit. I’m digging it. Alright. These people look less happy. I wonder if something is wrong. You conduct that band!I love the random outside shot with the birds for some reason. That car is moving very slowly. Is there a speed limit at royal weddings?And we’re back in the church. And back outside Who are these people?Aww both ladies are…

Ever, Jane Game Review

The front of Hatch's when you first enter the game.
So, I've been playing the game Ever, Jane for a while now, and I am just going to admit, right here and now that I am totally in love with it. The entire concept is just magical to me, and while there are some issues that need to be worked out (the game is still in open beta) the overall idea and concept of the game is wonderful. For those of you that have been following my blog, you know that I did a Jane Austen Month back last September, so I don't really think it was a surprise that I got into this game at all.
So, what is Ever, Jane?
Ever, Jane is an MMO game based on the world and works of Jane Austen. Set in the Regency in the Town of Tyrehampton your character is dropped off (in the game it's by either an aunt or uncle, but most people just make up their own background stories for their characters. More on that down below). Suddenly you are in charge of your own life in a brand new town that you know nothing abo…
