Staging Techniques and Movies in Staging Photos

Yea or Nay? Movies on the Screen in Home Staging

I've noticed a trend in real estate staging that I'm on the fence about. Homeowners and realtors have taken a liking playing well-known movies while they photograph rooms with televisions in them. Ashton Kutcher, for example, chose a Marilyn Monroe film to play in the screening room of his bachelor pad, which is on the market for $2.6 million for charity. I've seen everything from Breakfast at Tiffany's to Scarface in these shots, and I get the feeling that the chosen film is intended to say something about the lifestyle of the person living there — and more importantly, any potential future homeowners.

What do you think about this staging technique? Do you think it's distracting, or do you think it adds something to the homes?

I wouldn't use it myself, just in case a potential buyer happens to hate that particular movie. But I don't see why someone shouldn't use this, if they think it looks nice. They leave some art too sometimes, which is about the same.
