Yeah.... 7 minutes in and I'm gonna stop Much Ado About Nothing because I can't understand any of what these people are saying. I may try some other day with portuguese subtitles, but I'm pretty sure a lot will be lost in translation and, therefore, I'll probably end up not watching this at all.

Whedon's? I absolutely love Whedon's Much Ado. Anything that has Alexis Denisof performing physical comedy gets a massive A+++ in my book.

Yeah Whedon's. I couldn't understand what they were saying. Like, I had the English subtitles, and I was trying to analyze and decode each sentence but the dialogues were too quick for my brain to assimilate everything. I watched 7 minutes and got, probably, 15% of what they were speaking.

So yeah, it wasn't being very good to me

Shakespeare is tough enough for English people who grow up studying him in primary school to understand, so don't worry about it

Oh yeah, I believe in you, but I watched Hamlet and Romeo + Juliet and wasn't struggling half as much as with Much Ado About Nothing. Is it a harder text ? Is it because of how lightning fast the lines were delivered ?

EDIT: Hamlet, the one with Ethan Hawke, was pretty cool I think, btw.

Watched Possession last night.

Real fucking odd movie. Not really sure what to say about it but I was utterly fascinated the whole way through.

It's fascinatingly weird yeah, but it's really bad.

Maybe it's me, but I find it awful when an entire movie is based on a metaphor or a symbol.

But yeah, for better or worse, Possession is kind of unforgettable.

Yeah, it very, very fast. I can't remember if those other films stick purely to the Shakespeare dialogue either, but Much Ado does 100%. The speed is definitely a bit of a throw-off, though.

I didn't struggle much with Much Ado. Then again I'm a shakespear fanboy. And yeah seventh their delivery in that film was fast cuz he wanted to do the rom com thing.



Anyway I haven't been watching very many films lately. Just Buffy and reading. I'm up to the middle of season two and I have all day free today.

Oh okay, probably that's it then. I think the other two I've mentioned stuck to the dialogue too, but I'm not sure because it's Shakespeare.

It's unfortunate, but I probably won't be able to see it then. I don't want to watch it with portuguese subtitles because, even if the translation's good, it doesn't feel right. Idk how to explain it, it's just... it doesn't lyrically work for me

Don't know which version of Hamlet but the Lurhmann version fo R&J is a direct translation. Shakespearian comedy is much faster than Shakespearian tragedy. Plus, the jokes are always a little....old.
