Hey folks! This episode is a film review. Remember when we did that film review episode about MacBender? That was probably the most that Cat and Yoli have ever disagreed with each other, and it got a little #awkward. This won’t be like that, we promise.
- Michael Almereyda’s approach to modernizing Shakespeare
- The best and worst performances in this generally strong cast. (See the full cast list here.)
- How does this compare to Almeryda’s other well-known modernized Shakespeare adaptation, Hamlet (2000) ?
- We also compare it to lots of other Shakespeare film adaptations
- Visual language/ visual puns (ahem. Baz Luhrmann did it best.)
- Music. (Speaking of music, Yolana makes a mistake and incorrectly identifies this song as being by Bob Marley. The song is actually by Toots & The Maytals. Apologies.
- Cat quotes from this Entertainment Weekly review.
- Ed Helms and Ed Harris are totally different people.
