Miss Reader

Every book is a new journey to embark on. I mainly read romances, but I dabble in other genres too.

Some quick words on a few movies I've watched

Mary Shelley's Frankenstein (1994)

Over the top. Especially strays from the book at the end. It was entertaining, but it's not something I would watch again. My favorite adaptation continues to be the 2004 TV mini series.



Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992)

The visual style of the movie didn't click with me. I thought it looked ugly. Gary Oldman was great as Dracula, but I didn't care for the inserted love story between Dracula and Mina.



Raise the Red Lantern

Got this on a whim at the library. I didn't know it was based on a book until I googled it . I was surprised how disturbing it turned out to be. The ending was not a happy one. An interesting movie though! I recommend it!
