O! it is excellent
To have a giant's thanks for voting!
You tipped the scales!
Visit the video's full page!, but it is tyrannous
To use it like a giant.
That's hell of a wispy narration
I kept expecting someone to yell "you suck!"

This was actually a pretty clever modern take, also that's not a supermarket
this is not at all a bad version of Hamlet, just a jarring one for strict interpreters
It's actually quite effective.
You got Shakespeare in my Clerks!

Ethan Hawke is my least favorite actor. He makes vomit stir in my guts.
I hate the fuck out of Ethan Hawke and I think he destroys everything he is in.
appears to be the same store used in eternal sunshine of the spotless mind - the store where clementine works. funny.
Ratings dilemma or no ratings dilemma, this guy needs to handle Shakespeare like a chimp needs to handle open-heart surgery.
you don't know what the stars are for, do you?
that was mean

I love this scene, but I love the whole movie a lot less. I love non-traditional settings for Shakespeare, and I bet Shakespeare would, too, but they cut the lines of the verse into fragments, and I find that fucking jarring.

I'll solve the 1-or-5 dilemma above by voting against the submitter's commentary. This is how TO do it.
After having read every word of Shakespeare, plus 1500 pages of essays, seen every play, seen every major film version of a Shakespeare play, performed Shakespeare, and so on...
...this is the best film version of Hamlet (not counting any filmed stage versions I may not have seen), especially as far as capturing the essence of the play, and making it live for modern audiences.
If the "To be" speech is not a full-on, these-go-to-11, crafted performance- well then.... all the better.
