Anyone Been Watching The Shakespeare Retold On Bbc?

Recommended Posts

Just wondered what you thought about these modern remakes of classics?

Much ado about nothing was a terrific conversion and extremely well acted.

Macbeth was great, but not executed quite as well as Much Ado in my opinion.

Anyone else on HPC been watching these?

I cannot stand shakespeare, i think he was a melodramatic fool who should not be talked about in such esteem, didnt they uncover evidence recenctly to suggest that he didnt even write most of it? Ive read Macbeth, midsumers night dream, othello, romeo and juliet and can honestly say i think they are all sh*te. :lol: I know i am in the minority with my thoughts i just thoroughly dislike him.

Sometimes classics get re-made decently, sometimes they dont. Sometimes in todays world they will take a classic which is all plot and throw in special effects - sometimes it works sometimes it dosnt.

That's a bit harsh, Chuz. You may have had a bad experience at school but I find that - as with many subjects (languages in my case) - it becomes much more enjoyable as you get older and are no longer force fed the stuff.

Go see 12th Night in Regent's Park on a warm Summer evening - marvellous.

I still love the Baz Lurhmann version of Romeo & Juliet.

There was also a version of Othello on TV recently (might have been part of the BBC thing... not sure). That was a very accessible version.

Forget the books (or read the Lamb interpretation). Go see them acted.
