|am I the only one annoyed that there's more than one Lizzy in this picture? It's just Not Right.|
Aaaannnd, then I didn't finish filling out the tag, and forgot about it and so here I am months later. But that's okay. It's kind of fun to do it when no one else is, hahaha. :D
What is your favorite Austen book?
|this is such an adorable copy!! No, sadly, it's not MY copy. :)|
One Austen movie you dislike the most?
Umm...out of all I've seen? Oh! The 1980's version of Pride and Prejudice. It was...quite bad. Except for a few humorous non-book lines, the whole thing was a shambles. Mr. Darcy was like a walking mummy and Elizabeth was just simply annoying. I can't remember that much about it except that it was terrible. (sorry to anyone who did like this version...) It bored me half to death.
This is actually quite a lovely picture from it but do not be deceived!!! (heehee, just kidding. Go ahead and watch it, I won't mind.)
Thank you for making that plural. Here's a few of my favorites!
|sorry it's not full length... (from Northanger Abbey)|
|from Testament of Youth|
|from Amazing Grace|
|Laura's blue dress (and her hair!!) from Lark Rise to Candleford|
|Lizzy's ball gown from Pride and Prejudice '05|
(although it is a little too "nightgown-ish". I just love the simplicity if it.)
|North and South|
Least favorite hair style?
I don't like it when Emma wears her hair tightly pulled back in the 1996 version.
What is your favorite film adaptation to Austen's books?
I'm going to list a couple. It's my blog, you can't stop me.
For Pride and Prejudice, it's the 1995. For Sense and Sensibility it would probably be the 1995 version, although I do also love the 2008 film. For Emma, the 1996 version. For Northanger Abbey it's the 2007 version. For Persuasion it's a toss up between the 1995 and the 2007.
I have yet to see a Mansfield Park version. Any suggestions?
Favorite Downton Abbey character?
Because I haven't seen it!!!
(I haven't seen Doctor Who, either, but the gif worked ;))
Favorite BBC show?
Ha. Easy. BBC's Robin Hood!!!!!!!!!
Favorite Austen Heroine?
Probably Lizzy Bennet. I know, I'm so unoriginal, aren't I? ;)
Under the Greenwood Tree. It was perfectly clean and wholesome, and yet I just did NOT like it. The characters annoyed me, and I just simply didn't care for it that much.
Colin Firth or Matthew Macfadyen?
Errgg. This is hard. Colin Firth is PERFECTION as Mr. Darcy, but I must admit I think I like Matthew MacFayden a little better.....his portrayal of Arthur Clennam is stellar.
Jane Austen, Margaret Mitchell, or Lucy Maud Montgomery?
Oh goodness....DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD THIS IS?
How can I choose between Jane Austen and the creator of my beloved Anne?
Okay, I don't really mean that. But still. This is such an upsetting question!
I guess I have to go with L. M. Montgomery. I've been reading her books longer than Jane Austen, and I just love Anne and Gil and Avonlea too much to choose otherwise.
but I still love Jane Austen too!!!
Mr. Knightley, Mr. Darcy or Matthew Crawley?
Mmm.....well, this is easier in the sense that it's only between the first two....um. Wow. It's kind of even.
Mr. Knightley, Mr. Darcy, and Henry Tilney are my favorite Austen heroes. I just don't know which one is THE favorite....
|awwwwwwww my word he is precious|
Which Charlotte- Claudie Blakley or Lucy Scott?
Lucy Scott. She just is Charlotte for me. Although I did like how Claudie's Charlotte was more pitiable and sympathetic. I could understand her better than Lucy's Charlotte.
Thank you for reading! I wish I had time to touch on more of my favorite period dramas (there are sooo many) but this will have to do for now. :) Ta ta!
