What Would You Take?
« on: February 23, 2013, 12:57:56 PM »
It was all about the dresses
My friend Ryan McNeil over at The Matinee podcast always asks his guests about one thing that they take from the movie. And in this case there would be no hesitation in my answer. I would keep the dresses. There werenít just a handful of them, there were hundreds. One for every mood, once for every new scene. And each one a piece of art.

I donít normally spend a lot of time thinking about which screenshot to use for my writing about a certain movie. Iíll just grab whatever random picture that comes up at a search, as long as it isnít completely misrepresentative to the film. But in the case of Anna Karenina it was the opposite. Words seemed irrelevant to make it justice, when it was all about the pictures. I didnít want to choose one dress, I wanted to show the entire wardrobe!

Oh, and my favourite dress was the dark red one, in case you wonder.

Anna Karenina


Lobby starts this thread with a great question, "What would you take from a movie?" For Anna Karenina, Lobby chooses this:




I'll post a movie title and then you can tell us what you'd take from it and then choose the next movie. Even funner would be if you explained why and, if you want, add your thoughts to previous movie choices in your post. I'll start with an easy one (lots to choose from).

I'll take Bag End. Best house in the movies? Maybe. Scale it up, though, so I can fit in it.

I'd say windchimes, but that'd be creepy, so I'll take this lamp!

Just the bathtub, thank you.  The woman's got too much drama.

Because that little chunk of metal is so darned cute, I'd take R2D2.

I'd take the Wudang manual, so I could learn how to do this:
