Welcome to Lovers of Shakespeare

To be or not to be, that is the question;
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing, end them. To die, to sleep;
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to — 'tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep;
To sleep, perchance to dream. Ay, there's the rub,
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause.

I just love all the mid '90s Shakespeare movies... I have Othello (featuring Lawrence Fishburne o.O), Romeo+Juliet and Twelfth Night (featuring Helena Bonham Carter) and I love them immensely. They're a bit ridiculous but I really like having the ability to watch the plays acted out.

There was Shakespeare in my dream the other night. Entertainingly enough, lines about dreaming, from R&J. ( I.iv.)

ROMEO: I dream'd a dream to-night.
MERCUTIO: And so did I.
ROMEO: Well, what was yours?
MERCUTIO: That dreamers often lie.
ROMEO: In bed asleep, while they do dream things true.

I love how Leonard Whiting says that last line in the '69 movie version....

That is one of my very favorite contemporary plays, and it's about one of my very favorite plays by The Bard himself. :-)

Yea, definitely not a fan of Ethan Hawke.
Comment by Leslee Love on January 4, 2009 at 4:47pm
"It's like they shot it in a mall"...I agree. It's too moderny and it takes the darkness out of it. But it has been forever since I have seen it...I will have to watch it soon now.

I was just wondering. I love the British versions (of anything--I secretly wish I were British and live in England). I remembered you saying you did not like that particular version. What are some of your favourite versions of Macbeth, Hamlet, Midsummer, and any others?

Dallas, does that include the Macbeth version with Ian Mckellan and Judi Dench?
