1. What period dramas did you view in January?
Well, the only one I ended up REVIEWING was Singin' in the Rain (1952). But I did WATCH several others that could fall under the category of period dramas. I was on an adventure kick, so I watched The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003), At World's End (2007), Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984), and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989). (I know, that's a lot of movies--don't judge ;)) Hopefully I'll get reviews out for some of these eventually.
2. What is your favorite Charles Dickens film adaptation?
As strange as it may seem, I've only actually seen a few Dickens adaptations. I saw Oliver Twist (not sure which one) when I was eight or nine, and I've watched several versions of A Christmas Carol. So I'd probably just say A Christmas Carol. Again, not sure which one because I don't know if I could pick a favorite. They're all semi-equally ranked in my mind.
3. Would you rather visit Pemberley (Mr. Darcy's residence) or Downton Abbey (Crawley family residence)? Why?
Pemberley all the way! I've actually never seen Downton Abbey for...reasons. But I love everything to do with Pride and Prejudice, and Pemberley is just gorgeous so I'd obviously pick that. (Plus, it's Darcy's residence so I may get to meet him ;))

4. If you could be any character in a Jane Austen novel for a whole day who would you be and why would you want to be that character?
Hmmm....that's a tough question. I sadly haven't read all of Miss Austen's lovely novels so I'm not sure I could give a completely accurate answer until I have. For now, I'd say Elizabeth Bennet because she has the wittiest comebacks and, of course, marries Mr. Darcy so...

5. What period dramas are you looking forward to viewing in February 2016?
Well, I just finished The Shop Around the Corner (1940) so keep an eye out for that review. I'm hoping to watch My Fair Lady (1964), North & South (2004), Pride and Prejudice (2005), and possibly Amazing Grace (2006). There may or may not also be a post about the show When Calls the Heart because I need to fangirl about it. That's a lot of movies, I know, but I'm just tentatively throwing those out there.
Well, that's it! If you're interested in joining in the Period Drama Challenge, head on over to Miss Laurie's corner of the internets and let her know. It's been fabulous fun so far! Oh, and the link to the post where this tag came from is right here.
