I love this Hamlet!
This film was my first introduction to the story of Hamlet, and though
condensed and simplified it did a magnificent job. I was only 11, but
it made me fall madly in love with Hamlet. After reading it, it quickly
became my favorite Shakespeare play. I love how clear and defined the
film is, while still having the essence of Shakespeare's intent. The
acting is so intense, yet believable. I love the interpretation of the
era, and how the delivery of the lines made them so easy to grasp
without losing the authenticity. The play is really long and
repetitive, so I think this movie did a fantastic job of really getting
the meat. In some other Shakespeare film adaptations I've seen the
lines are stale and rehearsed, and it really shocks me that someone
could accuse these actors of being out of touch with the dialog. I
found it to be quite the opposite. So many of the scenes are just so
juicy. They really capture the story's power and depth. Plus, I'm
really into that period, so I found it difficult to get into Branagh's
film, no matter how good it was, *and* I really can't stand to watch
Kenneth Branaugh. He really irritates me because I feel like he uses
this same set of annoying expressions for every couple phrases. Huge
apologies to all those out there who worship him. It's just how I feel.
This version is just more my cup of tea in so many ways..

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.
Talent is everything
William Shakespeare is said to be the best writer of English language,
and one of the best ones in all time literature. I think everyone
should have the opportunity to read one of his plays or sonnets, so
that his talent and beauty of this works can reach the most distant
spots in the world. "Hamlet" is simply the best of his texts and many
people could think it's impossible to be taken to screens, such are the
small details and secrets "the bard" carries in his words. Some
directors, however, have made it beautifully. Franco Zeffirelli is one
of these people who could give life to Hamlet. Mel Gibson is Hamlet in
this production, and, believe in me, he's great! His talent lends the
film the perfection that makes it impossible to ignore the movie. The
monologues are impressive and Gibson's looks make us think he is Hamlet
