The screen Hamlet of choice
There's a moment at the very end when Mel Gibson's Hamlet, suddenly
gripped by poison, looses his footing. It's shocking, natural and a
terrible surprise, even to him. Such is the momentum of this
melodramatic, almost operatic version of Hamlet that the audience's
legs are torn from under them as well. I like this very much, a Hamlet
performed by a company with respect but not reverence for the text,
converting the script into movie drama not simply committing it to
Zeffirelli's biggest coup might be the setting, a damp and distant
medieval fortress at odds with Gibson's modern, witty but clearly
unbalanced Prince. The British cast assembled around him are very fine
- I think Alan Bates would have to be my ideal Claudius. Glenn Close's
Gertrude is rather spiky but this highlights her predatory sexuality
which (I think) suits this arrangement. Morricone's score is bonus.

The Hill Have Eyes 2. is a exellent version of murdering, for those who would like to see how the world maybe in a couple years, because of the polution, may see these movie. Shadow company. is a movie of corage and how our frontiers may go beyond our eyes and limits.
I absolutely loved Sweeney Todd, with its dark imagery, phenomenal cast, and twisted characters. This dark, brooding film will haunt me for years to come... and it is definitely not for the faint of heart..
In Much Ado About Nothing, Emma Watson and Kenneth Branagh bring to life the supposedly stale humor and wit of Shakespeare's comedy. I have to admit, is my favorite of Shakespeare's comedies. The sharp wit, both stinging and playful simultaneously, intrigued me, drew me in... and I found myself finishing it around four a.m. when I finally consented to bleary-eyed exhaustion. The language is so rich, and, like his well-known tragedies, Hamlet and Macbeth, Shakespeare's characteristic element of dramatic flair is proudly displayed through the courtship and marriage of Leonato's sweet daughter, Hero, and of his niece, acrid-tongued, man-hating Beatrice. The sparring between Benedic and Beatrice can only be described as an intricate dance, where each participant challenges the other to a new level. Their passionate relationship, out of context, started with a relationship that ended abruptly and messily, continued in disdainful, heated debates, and ended in marriage. Though these characters may seem incongruous, they complement each other. Ah, such a beautiful film!!! Enjoy!.
Nocturna. Love's Brother.
Excellent acting closest to the orignal yet.

Admittedly, the only reason I watched this film -- since it's been
about a decade since it was released -- was because of Ian Holm; I was
intrigued to see his portrayal of my second-favorite character in this
play. At any rate, this film is as gritty as anything the Old Zeff has
produced since "Jesus of Nazareth." But some of the best parts of the
play have been left out. I understand the directing/editing choices,
but I don't think that it really does justice to the play. Perhaps I'm
too much a purist. I would have to direct people (who have read this
far) toward Branagh's version, if it weren't that I despise his
tendency toward over-dramatization. All the same, he plays a better
Hamlet than Gibson. But then, weren't we all waiting for Gibson to
prove himself as an actor? Now, all he's done is to prove that he wants
to make films in extinct languages.
...Perhaps the only Shakespearean-worthy acting here is Scofield as The
