the (motion) picture of Dorian Gray

Guys, can we talk about this?

Thoughts:

1. I agree that Ben Barnes is really hot –– boy, is he –– but (and feel free to call me a purist here) Dorian Gray is blond. Blond. Why do Hollywood directors keep insisting on hiring brunette actors to play the part? (Oh, wait. Because when they can find a blond actor, they end up with Simon from 7th Heaven.)
2. Colin Firth will be bitchin’ as Lord Henry. You rock that bearded devil, Colin.
3. WHERE IS BASIL HALLWARD??  WHERE THE HOMOEROTIC SUBTEXT?
4. This looks like a Victorian horror movie. I don’t know how okay I am with that, but I’ll see it anyway. It’s got Colin Firth, and anyway, it’s got to be better than that postmodern, portrait-becomes-art-installation-of-televisions indie they made with the aforementioned David Gallagher a few years ago. (I mean –– televisions? Come on.)
