It’s St. George’s Day! And, to celebrate, I thought I’d bring you another post in the style of ‘Victorians and their Dogs’ and ‘Victorians and their Cats’, only this time we’ll be celebrating ‘Victorians and their Dragons’. Please remember: a dragon is for life, not just for St. George’s Day.
For those of you who follow my good buddy @bizarrevictoria, you’ll know that we like to unwind after a long semester by watching bad Victorian movies and good-naturedly ripping them to shreds for your amusement. We’ve recently roasted such cinematic classics as Dracula 2000, Vanity Fair (2004), The Man in the Iron Mask (1998), and The Raven (2012). Then we got word that our colleague @DrDouglasSmall had never seen Titanic. THIS SHALL NOT STAND, sayeth I, and so Douglas was duly taped to a chair and made to endure all 3hrs 15mins of melodramatic, iceberg-tastic, Celine-Dion-athon.
