Which Jane Eyre, Nefret? The one with Timothy Dalton as Rochester is my absolute favorite, I've seen it too many times to count!

The 2006 BBC miniseries, actually. I want to see more too.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

Oh yes :D (swoons). Although Toby Stephens wasn't bad in the more recent version, a bit young for Mr R though.

Watched Sense and Sensibility last night. The 2008 BBC version. I watched the movie version with Alan Rickman on Sunday. :)

Yesterday I saw Little Women (1940). I really enjoyed it, although Jo really tried me with her stubbornness. I do believe she could have made a good wife to Mr. Young Laurie, anyway, I did like the ending of the story. :D :D

Trying to remember if I've seen the 1940s Little Women... Is that the one with June Allyson as Jo?
