      Audience Member I was never to fond of Gone With the Wind. I always love this movie better. Scarlett is a lot kinder in this movie. An she's better at putting her Irish family needs above hers. An I love how she named Cat after her cousin Colum. An I felt like he rub off on her an made her nicer person. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member I thought the casting was really well done. Timothy Dalton as Rhett Butler and Joanne Whalley as Scarlett O'Hara Butler were excellent choices for the role. The storyline was really great and kept my interest. I'm glad they had Sean Bean as the protagonist Lord Richard Fenton he did an amazing job. I recommend watching this miniseries if you get the chance or can actually find it. An interesting sequel to GWTW. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member It both succeeds epically and fails epically at the same time. As an adaptation of the incredibly weak novel Scarlett, it's a triumph. The mini-series manages to hold the audience's attention while the novel was a complete snoozefest. However, as a sequel to one of the greatest movies ever made, it can't help but pale in comparison. The costumes and dialogue are impeccable, as are the actors. Joanne-Walley is a good Scarlett, and Timothy Dalton is surprisingly badass as Rhett. But there's too little plot and way too much talking. This is like a 6 to 8 hour special that could have just been 2 hours at maximum, if the numerous conversations had been trimmed down. Very mixed feelings about this miniseries, but overall, if you're a hardcore fan of Gone With the Wind, and you'll take whatever you can get from the franchise, see this series. Everyone else will probably be bored by it. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member It is difficult to compete with "Gone with the wind" and the perfect casting of Vivien Leigh and, even more so, Clark Gable. Nevertheless, it is good adaptation and, in some moments, it succeeds in capturing the passion of Scarlett and Rhett, both in their own personality and to each other. The less you comare it to the classic from 1939, the more you will enjoy it. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Absolutely LOVED it!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Most defiantly not gone with the wind!
