Ten random things: Reader Request Month, day 50

Ten costume dramas:

  1. Lawrence of Arabia (1962)
  2. Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World (2003)
  3. I Capture the Castle (2003)
  4. Chariots of Fire (1981)
  5. The Private Life of Henry VIII (1933)
  6. Barry Lyndon (1975)
  7. Great Expectations (1946)
  8. Amadeus (1984)
  9. The Remains of the Day (1993)
  10. Sense and Sensibility (1995)

Today's list is for caerwynx, who requested costume dramas. I've seen all of these but Barry Lyndon, which flopped on first release but has recently come to be thought of as one of Kubrick's best films, and I Capture the Castle, which may be really good, but which features a former Buffy cast member and therefore probably isn't. My favorite of these is probably The Remains of the Day, though Lawrence of Arabia, Chariots of Fire, Amadeus, and Sense and Sensibility are all right up there near the top too.
