It is the birthday of one of the most famous humans of all time. It is William Shakespeare’s birthday! The Bard abides.
Some of my fav Shakespeare quotes – “All the world’s a stage” ; “The fool doth think he is wise but the wise man knows himself to be a fool” – As You Like It “Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day? [add the next line of the sonnet]”- Taken from Shakespearian Sonnets “It is the East and Juliet is the sun!”- Romeo and Juliet, “Exit, followed by a bear“- The Winter’s Tale “The bees knees” – Macbeth.
My favorite underrated Shakespearian Movies that can loosely all be classified as adaptations- 1. Haider (2014) – The best Hamlet adaptation from the last 10 years which no one saw. :/ 2. Macbeth (2015) – A tour de force of color and sound. 3. The Lion King (1994) 4. Private Romeo (2011) – An alternative take on Romeo and Juliet 5. Scotland, P.A. – the best comedy adaptation of Macbeth (2001) 6. Omkara (2006) A wonderful and charming new take on Othello 7. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead (1990) – *A great take on Hamlet even though the writer isn’t the most politically correct one around* 8. 10 Things I Hate About You – An adaptation of the Taming Of The Shrew. Shout Out to my LB friend Calvin for suggesting this one!
I hope everyone has a fun day!
