killclaudio: (Hamlet&Horatio)
[personal profile] killclaudio
I had tomato and red pepper soup for dinner - comfort food if ever there was - and watched Hamlet on DVD. Which might just be the perfect Sunday evening, except that I'm not a big fan of either Zeffirelli's interpretation of Hamlet, or Mel Gibson's performance as the prince. In fact, I think I bought this version solely because I have a crush on Stephen Dillane, who plays Horatio. ♥♥♥

I was just wondering if anyone has seen Kenneth Branagh's version, and if it's worth me buying? Branagh has played so many Shakespearean heroes that pretty soon they're all going to merge into one in my head. Or if any of you know of another version I might like that's available on DVD; it's pimp your Hamlet day here at my journal!

And since watching Hamlet always makes me crave Hamlet/Horatio, have a drive-by rec. Double Entendre by [livejournal.com profile] crazylittleme, a rather sweet, PG-rated first kiss. There's a sad lack of good Hamlet/Horatio out there. Go and read it.
