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 saw it years ago and thought it was fairly good. I remember Mel being better than I expected.

I have seen it, long ago, and remember it being okay. I will have to watch it again to give any sort of assessment. It must not have been great or I would have remembered!

Has anyone seen Hamlet with Mel Gibson and Glen Close? Is it any good? I have my doubts, to be sure.

I've not seen Drowning by Numbers. I did not like Belly of an Architect at all, and there was one other that I did not like, though at the moment I can't recall the title. The Cook... and The Pillow Book are my favorites. I saw his very first film at a film festival once, and it was really weird and really long.

I have most of Greenaways's films _ Drowning by Numbers, Belly of an Architect, Zoo, Cook & the gang. He's excellent

*capture*-my spelling is off today (as my son keeps nudging me for kisses) :)

That's funny! It was awful, although it did captue a lot of what we discussed in my Great Books class (that I do not instruct).

I don't know if Mirren was in AMND. I don't remember. Yes, I really like Judi Dench as well, though I though that version of Macbeth with her and McKellan was dreadful.

...'midsummer's' rather...my apologies!
Comment by Leslee Love on December 19, 2008 at 3:54pm
He's brilliant, and yes absolutely beautiful!
I love Cate Blanchett, she does a great portrayal of the virgin queen. Was Helen Mirren in Misummer's? I also, like Dame Judi Dench. She plays Lady Macbeth in the version with Ian Mckellan (who is fantastic as well).
