Jane Austen Mashup Throwdown

Have Jane Austen mashups turned the corner? Has the trend been drained of blood, now that Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the movie, has been shelfed? Do you care if the trend lives on or not? Now is your time to give us your opinion!

Jane Austen Mashups
They're dead and buried for good.
They're among the walking dead, and barely moving
Eh. Meh. Bleh. Feh! I could care less.
Regency vampires are kinda cute. I'll read a few of them.
I keep baring my neck hoping that one will bite me. Keep bringing them on free polls

These pictures must have been Photoshopped. They didn't really get made up like this, did they?

Did I hear you ask for an opinion? Get rid of 'em. They were a respit for a few people of temporary duration, time to move on/stick with something better. Personal opinion of course.

Vic said...

Personal opinions accepted! Yes, Tony, these images were photoshopped by Worth 1000. Fabulous.

Enid Wilson said...

Excellent photos! Did you get wind of why P&P&Z was shelved? How about Elton John's one? P&P and Alien? Is that one shelved too?

Enid, the article sits in the sidebar! The director left and Natalie Portman decided to concentrate on making another film. Without the star and director, the movie seems to be shelved.

So pleased to learn the movie is not going to happen! the mashups were a slightly amusing diversion, but enough is enough.

I just read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Interesting concept but I kept waiting for the author to veer from the original text and do something really different. Like Suzan said, it is an interesting diversion but not really my thing.

Yuck ! I detest them all and am happy Natalie P. bailed on the project. Let's hope it's over and done with at last !!!
