Here are my answers to this month's tag :-)
1. What period dramas did you view in March?
I watched The Blue Dahlia (1946), One Night with the King (2006), Branded (1950), and Little Women (1994). I watched and reviewed This Gun for Hire (1942) and Whispering Smith (1948).
2. What is your favorite period drama soundtrack?
ACK! That's a hard question to answer. I LOVE movie soundtracks. Actually, I review them from time to time on James the Movie Reviewer's blog -- I have a list of the ones I've reviewed here, with links.
My favorite, though, is probably Hans Zimmer's score for The Lone Ranger (2013), judging solely by how often I listen to it. In fact, I was just listening to it tonight while writing. You can read more of my thoughts about it here.
3. If you could attend a ball in a Jane Austen story what would be the color of your ballgown and who would you dance with?
Well, I tend to prefer darker, richer colors than what I usually see in Jane Austen movies. I'd love a dark green gown, and I think Henry Tilney would be hilariously fun to dance with, though I might laugh too much to dance very well. Then again, I don't dance very well as it is, so the laughing would give me a way to excuse that deficiency, wouldn't it?
4. Do you prefer watching period dramas by yourself or with friends/family? Why?
Depends on my mood, and the member of my family. If I've never seen a movie before, I prefer to watch it by myself or with Cowboy, but not with my kids or my own parents -- they're all far too chatty, and I get frustrated by missing dialog all the time. But once I've seen them a time or two, I love sharing movies with other people.
5. What period dramas are you looking forward to viewing in April 2016?
I'm very much hoping to watch The Big Land (1957) for the first time. And I'm hoping to see The Huntsman (2016) in the theater, though that's really more fantasy than period drama, I suppose.
