] Would I be way out of line if I mentioned that I
] watched Emma3 again today and really enjoyed it?
] I was a complete Emma2 fan (no one can sway
] me from adoration of Jeremy) but I was surprised
] and delighted at how enjoyable I found Mark
] Strong's version...I'm glad now that I watched it
] again. And Kate Beckinsdale, who I thought
] shrewish and ill-tempered the first time I saw it,
] comes off as spirited and independent on a
] second look.
] What did I learn? (a) The book is still my
] favorite, because the movie version that plays
] while I read is of my own making; (b) What
] you said -- and why I'm posting this here -- is
] correct: we get to enjoy Emma from a bunch
] of different vantage points and none of them
] are without value (although, grimace, I'm still
] an Emma2 fan); and (c) Emma1 is still just
] terrible, no matter how you look at it!
] I'll still adore JN from afar, but rather than think
] MS was totally wrong for Mr. Knightley, I am
] beginning to think he did it much more justice
] than I did him!
