Seriously, I even liked the Mel Gibson version better than the Brannagh Version.
The whole atmosphere is terribly disturbed by that 19th century scenery, it is too long to watch (Yes, it has all the text, but I read it anyway, so I don't need it) and Branagh's soliloquies are really, really bad in my opinion. Even Mel Gibson delivered them better.

best part of Hamlet is when Simba, Timon, and Pumba all sing "Hakuna Matata."

I skipped school or was sick or whatever on most of the days we read Hamlet in high school so I know pretty much nothing about it aside from everyone dies and its bad luck for actors to say its name

also I assume Hamlet is the name of the main character

Shakespeare was a hack so I don't really care about his body of work.

I actually thought Hamlet was awesome which is weird because I disliked most of what we had to read.

I meant to reply to this. I agree, I think in retrospect it seems for the most part (apart from select scenes here and there) it's a pretty cold and calculated way to look at so much emotion. But isn't that sort of interesting and fitting in itself? It spends most of its time proving that love isn't just some silliness humans made up and sing about, it's a force of nature in of itself that seemingly is so powerful it sometimes has the ability to transcend the lawfulness of the universe and that even the cold hard glare of science has to admit that. All impossible barriers can be broken and it can survive all possible catastrophes. I guess it's not like a cold tone is required to accomplish this and I always prefer warmth. But I wouldn't really call the film either. It feels like it often took a cold and somewhat distant approach to emotion and although I'm not crazy about that it makes sense for me.

I hate reading Shakespeare but dude was legit (and gay lol) as **** and Hamlet is pretty great as far as that stuff goes. I wrote an essay about it last year arguing it was actually pretty feminist and somehow ended up with a great score so I guess that idea was approved

Hamlet is whatever, top tier Shakespeare is The Tempest

edit: also lol at some of you not realizing that the emotion in Interstellar is set against the stark coldness of the majority of the universe for purposeful reasons

2 Fast 2 Furious was ****ing great, but I'm kinda bummed Cole Hauser got stuck with the bad guy role instead of joining main cast for the whole series, that would have been so dope. He really hasn't had a very good career since the early 2000s and that sucks cuz he's the best. Too bad Vin wasn't in this one tho since Riddick x Johns is best character dynamic.

also Eva Mendes was crazy hot, especially at the end in that white tshirt

The Ox-Bow Incident is amazing, although getting a bit too heavy-handed with the ending.

i kind of liked reading Hamlet and Macbeth in high school.

10 times better than Midsummer Night's Dream and Romeo & Juliet.

Romeo & Juliet was made worse because our school forced us to read it for American Lit. class.

Saw Spoorloos - The Vanishing for the second time. I remember finding it great, although not a favorite, and, while I was watching it, I was constantly thinking "Why isn't this one of my personal favorites ?". Then when it finished, I understood why: the entire movie is basically a huge suspenseful build-up, and it does it amazingly. The problem is that when I get to the resolution, I can't help but feel a bit disappointed. It's not a bad resolution, at all, it's actually pretty damn great, but it just doesn't really match what the build-up.. builds.

I hope this makes sense. Still, it's a great great movie.

I forgot about that movie. I remember reading about it, probably on some "list of most disturbing/darkest movies" page. For some reason I was really into this Listverse site for a little while. That was weird. But I think I saw it there and never got around to it so thanks for reminding me.

Happy Bob?

I also forgot to reply to this, that was rude

Pseudo-pseudo psychosexual analysis AT BEST but yes ty

Anyway I just watched this fascinating, strange, beautiful anime film called Angel's Egg that I'm pretty sure I love. But a disclaimer: very very vague and slow. I think I'm going to watch it again now which is something I can't remember ever doing.

Actually that's MacBeth. I'm not sure why though.

Eversince I saw Orson Welles' MacBeth, I've got a feeling that MacBeth is (among other things) a bit of a spoof on superstition. Not that that's really anywhere in the text, but the way Welles opens the movie it kind of makes sense.

I think the problem is that people concentrate on the love story in Romeo & Juliet. I believe that first of all what Shakespeare wanted to say was that young love was stupid, not beautiful and that it is doomed to fail.
And the important thing about Romeo & Juliet is the social commentary and not the relationship between those two. At least that's how I excuse Shakespeare for writing that...
