Do you like Period Dramas?
I think you know by now that BBC is one of my favorite TV networks in the world. When I am looking for a good show to watch, I always do a search for the latest BBC movies or series, and you know why? Because I love Period Dramas and I don't think there is anyone out there as good at producing those as the BBC network.
So, as I sat today looking for movies to add to my Netflix Queue, I was having a really hard time finding exactly what I wanted.
Maybe I wasn't putting in the right search words or who knows.......and then I remembered that just a few days ago I found an amazing blog called Enchanted Serenity of Period Films and she listed 150 Top Period Dramas.
You have GOT to read these posts:
Top Period Dramas A-L
Top Period Dramas M-Z
Top BBC Period Dramas
Also take a look at her Film Index. My word, this woman is my hero. I have found so many good shows to watch and my Queue is overflowing with goodness.
Now while we're talking of Period Dramas, thanks to Sherry, I found Bright Star, added it to my Netflix and was lucky enough to watch last weekend. I don't think there is enough that I can say about how much I loved the movie.
The love story of 19th century poet John Keats and Fanny Brawne, what an amazing and yet sad movie, I laughed, I cried and I was absolutely in awe of the costumes and cinematography.
If you haven't watched it yet, I highly recommend it.
Right now I have Aristocrats on my tv and I'm kind of enjoying it but just don't know, it's not one of my faves.
So there you go, I wanted to share some links with you especially since we have a long weekend coming up, might give you an idea of some great movies to watch. Oh and if you don't want to wait for your Netflix movie to come in or can't find them at the movie store, you can always watch them on YouTube.
The wonderful Charleybrown of Enchanted Serenity of Period Films also has a list of all the great Period Dramas found on YouTube. I'm telling you, this blog is a treasure chest full of wonderful goodness.
Now tell me, what is your favorite movie genre?
