First off, JANE SEYMOUR. She of the regal beauty and regal regalness. And hey, Magneto/Gandalf is in it! These are all the expectations I have for the film. That and COSTUMES.
It's also available to read online here and can I just say the first line kinda confuses me:
I'm all for the long and twisting sentences y'all. And for the briefer than brief ones. But beyond the sentence going off on a tangent to describe the savage state of the crowd of beings who are "human only in name", am I the only one that was waiting for the sentence to actually have the subject... oh, I dunno, do something. I do love sentence fragments. I do. The surging crowd. The pounding rain. Etc. But when you have a sentence go on in asides for that long, it feels weird for it to just end without the awaited action. Unless, is this sentence being too clever in not having action? Is this some meta commentary about raising expectations only to not deliver? IDEK. Thoughts?
Anyone else love period movies and literature? Any faves? I love, love, love the classic Pride and Prejudice film with Laurence Olivier and the more recent Sense and Sensibility. Heck, I even love Emma with Gwyneth Paltrow.
