Genre: Shakespearean Romantic Tragedy
Director: Carlo Carlei (Fluke)
Starring: Hailee Steinfeld, Douglas Booth, Paul Giamatti, Lesley Manville, Kodi Smit-McPheeThe Story: Surely, you know the story by now. The Lowdown: Deadly dull, emotionally empty, woefully miscast, indifferently directed and just plain not good.
Genre: Shakespearean Tragedy
Director: Laurence Olivier
Starring: Laurence Olivier, Jean Simmons, Eileen Herlie, Basil Sydney, Norman WoolandIn Brief: Time has not been especially kind to Laurence Olivier's Hamlet. When it first appeared in 1948, it was the last word in culture at the cinema. Today, a lot of it feels stilted, alarmingly middle-brow and occasionally rather silly. (Some of Olivier's expressions look more like a parody than a serious attempt at the role.) That said, it's still a very good looking film, and on occasion, it even lives up to its 1948 reputation.
Genre: Shakespearean Comedy
Director: Joss Whedon
Starring: Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, Nathan Fillion, Clark Gregg, Reed Diamond, Fran Kranz, Jillian MorgeseThe Story: Shakespeare's comedy of battling lovers, dastardly plots and bungling policemen gets a modern treatment — in everything but language. The Lowdown: A mostly delightful film from Joss Whedon that not only captures Shakespeare's play, but perhaps shines some new light on it. In the teeth of the blockbuster summer, it's almost a little miracle.
