  1. The Branagh Hamlet really is beautiful. There's some bits where it being the full text means it kind of plods along, but the cinematography and acting more than make up for any lulls.

     

    If you like Shakespeare related things, I'd highly suggest reading the comic series/graphic novels Kill Shakespeare. I don't want to say much and possibly spoil it but Shakespeare is a Wizard-God and his characters are at war with each other. King Richard III and Lady Macbeth are the leaders of one side; Juliet and Othello are the leaders of the other; stuck in the middle is Hamlet. It's a beautifully drawn book and the writing, while not in iambic pentameter, does a good job of faking it.

  2. So you did! Missed that somehow. Have to admit to still not having seen Branagh's Hamlet! That's definitely one of many outstanding on my to-watch list.

     

    I read that with some friends at a drunken party in the summer! I really must by it. It was hilarious. Can file it next to my choose-your-own-adventure Hamlet ('To Be or Not To Be') and the 'Shakespeare Not Stirred' cocktail recipe book (inc. 'Now is the Whiskey of our Discontent', 'Exit Pursued by a Beer', 'Get Thee to a Winery' and 'Caliban's Wrong Island Ice Tea'). Both are amazing!

  3. I mentioned a couple in the thread. Hamlet (1996) and Othello (1995) are very good. Scotland, PA is a reimaging of Macbeth set at a fast-food restaurant.

     

    If you like reading, William Shakespeare's Star Wars is worth a look. It's a parody as much as a tribute.

  4. Ha! Glad someone liked my Shakespeare fanboying. I'd love any more recommendations too, if you have any favourites I missed!

  5. Just read your list of favorite Shakespeare adaptations in the last film you watched thread and all I can say is "Marry Me?" :p

     

    You hit nearly all my favorites and more importantly WHY they're my favorites.

  6. Setlist whinging ensuing in 3 ... 2 ... 1 ...
  7. 1) What do you think it is about your music that your fans connect to that makes them so dedicated to you? 2) Given all the platforms there are to experience and interact with music, what do you think is the best way to enjoy yours?
  8. As an in-between main Muse albums I'd like Chris and Dom to do an album together. Or at least release an EP of studio recordings of the various drum and bass jams.
  9. I'm still trying to process last night. It was my 10th time seeing the band so I'm used to certain things at this point, but they still managed to impress me. One thing I can say for sure is that while I'm glad they played "The Globalist" in full and I got to hear it, I think it would be better if they dropped it and put 2 5-minute songs in its place. Seeing it live just re-enforced my initial feelings upon listening to it on the album which is that the middle heavy section is the best part. If the whole song were that heavy section throughout, it would've been my top song of the album. Will write more later after I have more time to reflect.
