Much ado…

That Shakespeare fella…he was really quite good, wasn’t he? Just watched Kenneth Brannagh’s film adaptation from a few years back, of Much Ado About Nothing. I love the way the Bard can move from light to dark and back again. Slapstick humour crosses dark psychology, and of course love wins out. Shakespeare’s plays are, I reckon, the only remakes worth doing. Even Hollywood wouldn’t dare attempt Much Ado About Nothing 2. Having said that, the reworking of Taming of the Shrew, the film Ten Things I Hate About You, starring the wonderful Julia Stiles, was really excellent. If anyone who reads this blog has any views on subjects Shakespearian, remakes, reworkings and recommendation, I’d love to hear them.
