Cause I can never get enough!

To say I've watched a number of different videos of North and South over the past couple of months would be a massive understatement. I was looking for a good one to put up for our newest Maybe Crusader, Brie who has already ordered North and South and is waiting impatiently for it to arrive.
I've spent the evening looking again for one to put up and I ended up coming back to one I've used before. But it's so good, it's worth doing a second time.

All Richard....all the time! Love it!

I've just bought N and S to give to a family member for a birthday present. God, I hope they like it!

Wonderful video Kristie! Thanks

I adore this music. It's Trevor Jones and Randy Edelman's "Promontory" from the final scene in The Last of the Mohicans. So naturally I thought, "Margaret, I will find you--no matter what occurs!!"

I lent my N&S to a friend and she hasn't returned it. Now I'm sick and I want to watch it. Wah!

Kristie (J) said...

Carrie: Yikes! To be without when the NEED to watch N&S comes over you again - that's a tough one. And when one is sick, it does make you feel better for a while - I know this because I watched some of it last night and for a while I felt better :)
I think the reason this is my favourite video is because even though the music comes from Last of the Mohicans - another movie I ADORE - and at first glance seems an odd choice as it's from a colonial movie, the way Pommekitty melded it together, it just flows. The music keeps pace with the movement perfectly I think. It intrigues without giving away too much of the ending, it certainly highlights the best shots of John Thornton and if you haven't seen it, it leaves you wondering and curious. I'd seen it before I saw North and South and it was a big factor in finally getting the series. After I watched it, it was the first video on YouTube I searched out - and then while watching it, thought 'yes, I remember that scene, and that one, and so on.'

Kwana: Isn't it a good one? As I said to Carrie - I'd seen it before ever watching North and South and it stayed with me.

Marg: *laughing* there may be too much Richard for some, but never enough for others. And I wouldn't worry - I think whoever you bought it for will love it. Judging by the raves at Amazon, it's a Very Good Choice! And of course you are being a Good Crusader by spreading the word *wink*

Jenster said...

*sigh* Okay. That's it. I'm heading over to B&N and using my Christmas gift card to purchase this movie. I've only ever seen it once and it's just not enough. I must own it. It's that simple.

Kristie (J) said...

Jenster: Yea!!! We got you! Once simply isn't enough is it? It's something that needs to be seen over and over so you can start seeing the beautiful subtleties of it, the hands, the longing, the different relationships and how they all come into play and oh so much more!

Brie said...

Hi Kristie, I loved the video. If I was inpatient before then I'm now jumping out of my skin. I want to know more! But I don't like being spoiled before going into a movie, so I will try to sit still and wait.

Kristie (J) said...

Brie: that's why I think this video is such a great one. It doesn't really give any of the story away. All you know is there is a very handsome young man who has a close relationship with his mother. And there is a very beautiful young woman. There is something between the two of them, but you don't know what. But it's interesting enough that you want to know what it is between them and what happens. And the music is haunting.

Misty G said...

Kristie (J) said...

Oh Misty - you do - you really do!! 'tis a wonderful experience!!

CindyS said...

I love the videos and of course, the music is one of my favourites also. Now I need to go re-watch the final scene - no kisses in this video!!

I finally watched the last two hours this weekend and it was great! The scene where Thornton is standing outside watching carriage leave and commanding her to look back was so moving. This is such a great movie!

Kristie (J) said...

Georgie Lee: and are you going to post on it? I'm awaiting *evil grin* That scene is so moving isn't it? It's like the light has gone out of his life as the carriage pulls away! And what did you think of the famous "train station" scene? See - you are going to have to post about it!

Georgie Lee said...

I will definitely have to post about it. He is so sexy in the train scene and when she stands up and leaves and then comes back. The whole ending was amazing.
