Pride and Prejudice Bicentenary Challenge movie review!

The Pride Prejudice Bicentenary Challenge (2013)
Finally I am reviewing the 1995 version of Pride and Prejudice. I had never seen this version and own the Colin Firth version done by A&E. There are pros and cons to both version of the great work by Austen. In regards to the 1995 version, I did like the settings of the house and that they actually showed more of the servants, I felt this lacked in the previous version. They showed them more with the common folk, and I did think this version of a country dance might have been more accurate. Mr. Darcy though was just too nice from the start, which is not how Austen portrayed Mr. Darcy in the book!  The acting itself was good by everyone, I just felt that Mr. Darcy personality never showed an air of aristocracy. One thing I felt spoiled from watching the miniseries from the 80's was that, in the 1995 version it seemed the film was way too short. Not that the Colin Firth version is perfect, as I think sometimes it did have it's issues as well. I do wish I could have taken the things I loved about both versions and put them together.
