Oh NO, not Brideshead Revisited, revisited

August 3, 2008

(For Full disclosure’s sake, I haven’t seen the movie yet)

So apparently Brideshead Revisited has been butchered.  According to Church of the Masses they took, “a profoundly catholic novel” (it is) and made it “viciously anti-catholic.”   Now mind you, this comes as no surprise after watching the trailer.  It seems like screenwriters, writers, the intelligentsia, etc, all think it is still profoundly original to bash catholics (I’m not one but even I feel offended sometimes).  All I can say is I’m leaving this one to rent, or dare I say it, download.  My only question right now: Is Rex still Canadian in their remake? I’m guessing no.
