A good movie

I don’t really remember why but I was actually really eager to watch this movie for quite some time. I guess it was probably because it had some really solid ratings and/or because there was a stellar cast involved. To be honest, I have to admit that I always had a hard time to get into these movies adapting William Shakespeare’s plays and keeping the original text. I mean, the language is awe... read more

William Shakespeare's classic play is brought into the present with the setting as Great Britian in the 1930s. Civil war has erupted with the House of Lancaster on one side, claiming the right to the British throne and hoping to bring freedom to the country. Opposing is the House of York, commanded by the infamous Richard who rules over a fascist government and hopes to install himself as a dictator monarch.

" Vudu- 1hr. 44min. First Viewing I'll be honest; I'm in no real position to give an accurate assessment of this movie. While I did see most of it, I fell asleep a bit in the last act. With that said, here's my findings of what I did see... It lest me a bit cold. Though expertly mounted, it was something. Maybe it's the text itself that I've got problems with; I found the non-Richard characters so absurdly naive and simplistic that the lead's rise, and the atrocities he commits, held no real mor"

"A splendid little movie with some beautiful little cinematic moments and amazing actors. Except young Robert Downey Jr. who's really outclassed in the film. "

A good movie

“I don’t really remember why but I was actually really eager to watch this movie for quite some time. I guess it was probably because it had some really solid ratings and/or because there was a stellar cast involved. To be honest, I have to admit that I always had a hard time to get into these movies adapting William Shakespeare’s plays and keeping the original text. I mean, the language is awesome but it gets rather tiresome, especially in this case as I saw this movie in English with some Dutch subtitles (French is actually my mother tongue). Still, this movie is usually considered as one of the best Shakespeare adaptations and there was indeed many things to enjoy here. For example, it was pretty neat that they set the action in some alternative fascist version of England in the 30” read more

1 - Robert Downey Jr.! (48 movies items)

"36 as Lord Rivers I'm not a fan of Shakespearean style speaking. I was floored when I saw him and Annette Benning again. They were also in the the movie In Dreams together. I barely got 10 screen caps before he got killed though but made it easy to do a collage though."
