Movie Review: The hotness that is Mr. Jane Eyre

I wish I'd paid attention more in high school.

It wasn't until last year with the Nintendo Book Club tea party where I revisited Pride & Prejudice by reading it on my Nintendo DSi XL. I realized how much I loved the story. In high school the only appreciation was towards how the cliff notes could earn me a B- for not reading the actual book.

And this week I watched the new Jane Eyre on Apple TV and loved it so much I watched it again the next day (since I finally understood the plot after the credits were rolling the first time!). I'm totally going to read the book now the DSi XL, since I didn't want the love story to end.

But there's more to this point, and that is the allure of Michael Fassbender. He played Mr. Rochester in the 2011 Jane Eyre movie, and he brought the dreaminess. And usually I don't like plain jane (no pun intended) heroines, but the chick, Mia, from Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland was a nice fit.

After a small amount of stalking on IMDB, I learned he was in Inglourious Basterds too! [Another favorite movie] Plus a few new movies coming out.

JQ Lounge gives 2 dvr thumbs up to Jane Eyre. Watch it!

I am ashamed to say I have not seen this yet.

Have you seen XMen yet? He goes around tracking down bad guys and killing people in a wetsuit, I believe, and it's really hot.

Jane Eyre is one of my all-time favorite books! Now I definitely need to watch the movie.
