I've notcied alot about movies that take place in a certain time period that tend to be off the mark in many ways. Two examples I can give of this are Chicago and (the new) King Kong. Chicago seemed to have gone wrong in ways beyond the costume but the gestures and language. At times I forgot what time period it even took place in. There was also the issue of haircut and makeup that threw it off if only slightly. And, if I remember correctly, the attorney wanted Rene Zellweger to pay him I think around $5000 to defend her. WOHA, way off. Who in the 1920's could afford that amount of money, especially if you wern't well off and in prision?? Strange. King Kong was well done overall I thought. I thought they did a good job with the scenery of New York, they talk, and the outfits. Although, one thing botehred me: the cars were all very new and very shinny looking. There was also the wearing of the tuxedos. #1 None of the people had starched, bibed front shirts, something of which I know they wore in 1933 for dressy occasions. #2 In the very last scene Jack Black shows up still in his tux with an overcoat and his fedora? No, no, no, that can't be right for full dress! And judging by the character it seems like he would have worn a top hat. I don't know if this is worth the topic, but I'm very particular and was wondering if anyone else noticed these things. Good period peices should include things from that present date and things from before it in order to make it accurate (if thats what you're going for). Today we see things left over from the past. Not every car, appliance, furtiture or clothing people own is right up to date in 2006. We have things from 2000, 1999, 1998...95', 94' maybe even earlier? I dunno, I just love dating things and trying to figure out from whenst they came.
