Well, an 83 comes out to about a B- in grading terms, which is not that great. I think it reflects the improvement on this material in the adaptation from book to film, and that if you read the text of the review itself I do have plenty of criticisms. I also don't totally disregard the pleasures of what so many people love about this series: the soapy romance, pretty young people, and striking settings. The film renders these, for the most part, pretty well -- though I agree that some of the acting could have been a lot better.
Judging by your screenname, I'm guessing that you are decidedly NOT the demographic these films are targeting, and unlikely to enjoy them regardless or their production values.
