Hamlet, a review by Rich

Academy Award Best Picture winner 1948


Winner of four Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Actor, Sir Laurence Olivier's 'Hamlet' continues to be the most compelling version of Shakespeare's beloved tragedy. Olivier is at his most inspired - both as director and as the melancholy Dane himself - as he breathes new life into the words of one of the world's greatest dramatists. Criterion is proud to present 'Hamlet' in a luminous black-and-white digital transfer.

Thoust twatched thine grandee purveyance beyond thy western star etc etc  :devil:

Broody short adaptation of Hamlet, in comparison to Branaghs which was several hours long. The B&W production, eerie music, and specifically the spirit of Hamlets father who stalks the castle make for an imposing movie. This is said to be the best acted Hamlet ever, I can't compare so I take their word for it, I can confirm that many scenes were compelling and the interactions at times superb. A little direction was annoying as we constantly were lead in POV mode down countless empty corridors.
I struggle to understand Shakespeare, and I don't really like it, but I would say this movie is pretty accessible and not particularly hard to follow, and does allow us to view possibly one of the best Shakespearian actors in his prime.
Not my cup of tea, perhaps I am a peasant?

Clueless, a review by Dragonfire


Still as smart and charming as ever, Clueless gets a fresh, sassy makeover for this new "Whatever!" Collector's Edition. Alicia Silverstone sparkles as Cher, the matchmaking 15-year-old Beverly Hills High schooler who has shopping and boys on her mind, but mostly shopping. Also starring Brittany Murphy as a dowdy transfer student, Jeremy Sisto as her potential mate and Paul Rudd as Cher's sensitive "Baldwin" step-brother, Clueless is back to capture the hearts of a whole new generation.

My Thoughts

I did get a review posted on Epinions a while ago if anyone wants to take a look.

Letting Go AKA = Even Steven  :laugh:

Another good story. Another good guest star. Another good ending to the episode.
