] After renting and watching Emma2 countless times, I have finally purchased a copy of Emma3 so now I can really compare the two versions. I don't want to start another Emma2 vs Emma3 war, because I like both versions. I'll admit to preferring Emma2, but I think that's more because it was presented almost as a romantic comedy, my favorite movie genre. Emma3 was more of a drama, but the more I watch it the more I like it. It's interesting how the same novel resulted in such different adaptations! I guess I'll just have to face the fact that I'm an Emma fan(atic).
are you finding laughs in e3, jj? i found it incredibly funny, and more so with repeated viewings, but in exactly the same way that i find ja's novels funny. it's like, you can find so many things in real life funny if you know how to look. it's a warm feeling of "yessss!" when i see the situations her characters get into.
speaking of real life funny, when i bought e3 at the video store, the kid who rang it up wanted to make sure i knew i wasn't buying e2, so he innocently said, "you're aware this is the documentary version, right?". "oh yes", i replied!
