Three sentence movie reviews: Jane Eyre


This was a bit boring, and I did nod off during the movie. However, the chemistry was quite good between Jane and Mr. Rochester (whom I have just realized played Magneto in X-Men First Class–that guy is suddenly in everything) and I thought the acting was well done on all parts. It was rather sedately paced, good for knitting, I think.

Um, the spell check in Blogger just steered me to the correct spelling of Magneto’s name. Why would it recognize a character in X-Men and not the flowers borage and calendula? Is Magneto also a word?

As it tuns out, yes. Dictionary.com defines it as such:

a small electric generator with an armature that rotates in a magnetic field provided by permanent magnets, as a generator supplying ignition current for certain types of internal combustion engines or a hand-operated generator for telephone signaling.

Now we know.

  1. I loved the cinematography. I remember when I read this story, in 8th grade it was gripping (Gothic drama is perfect for teens!), this movie was less so, but still good. I always love spotting Billy Elliot (Jamie Bell) in new things, he is a favorite.
