Thoughts I Had While Re-watching 'Far From the Madding Crowd'

  1. Dorset is staggeringly beautiful.
    Even when (spoiler) sheep are hurling themselves off cliffs. Thanks for that image, Thomas Hardy.
  2. I will now watch every film that Matthias Schoenarts has been in.
    First up, Rust and Bone.
  3. I'm remembering how much I loathe those Wickham types.
    Looking at you, Sergeant Troy.
  4. NO CAREY MULLIGAN!
    Fancy fencing shouldn't be this effective, romantically speaking.
  5. NOT THE SHEEP AGAIN.
    Sheep really are an issue in this story.
  6. Gabriel Oak. Oh, I get it.
    Oak, as in, like, a sturdy, reliable tree. A little on the nose, but I'll deal.
