mswooster: Wallander Tribute Vids!

A while back a made a couple of videos using clips from the two first Wallander episodes. The first is entirely Ken-centric whereas the second one is just clips mashed together, with mostly Ken clips! I also made a Much Ado vid. Take a look! Hope you like them!

Ken IS Wallander!Collapse )

So guys, what did you think???? I thought Ken is a quite genius casting of Kurt Wallander. The scenery in Sidetracked was beautiful (makes me want to go to Sweden). Hmmm, need screencaps.

This community needs to be less quiet!

fajrdrako: As You Like It...

Oh what a lovely movie.

The 2006 Kenneth Branagh version of As You Like It starts with a ninja attack and ends with a wedding. It has all sorts of delights in between - I was laughing out loud at some of the jokes, and though among all Shakespeare's plays it's one I am largely unfamiliar with, it's amazing how familiar so many lines are. I quite loved Bryce Dallas Howard (Ron Howard's daughter) as Rosalind,and though I'm not sure she gave the role the strength and power it deserves, she certainly gave it charm.

Brian Blessed played both the Good Duke (in white) and the Bad Duke (in black) and each role was so different there was no shred of possibility of confusion. Well done.

Well done also to cast the three brothers Orlando, Oliver and Jacques de Royce with black actors. It made it instantly clear - among a crowd of characters - which were the brothers.

My friend maaseru and I were both smitten by Alex Wyndham as Silvius. Gorgeous. maaseru kept pointing out that he was "born in 1981. 1981!" Yeah, well, say I, age doesn't matter. But, yeah, 1981.

Gorgeous anyway.

Kevin Kline was witty and sad as Jacques, suitably enough, and I even recognized him this time, though not in his first scene - I always have trouble recognizing Kevin Kline. Alfred Molino was oddly unappealing as Touchstone. Maybe it was the bad hair.

Not only do I want to see it again, I'm looking forward to seeing it again.

Part of the time I watched with the script in my lap, seeing who the characters were, and what dialogue Branagh cut. It taught me something about Shakespeare's pacing: he wrote in reverse pyramid style - almost all Branagh's cuts were the beginning of scenes, or the beginnings of passages. Shakespeare left the meaty bits for the end.

Why isn't this play performed more? It's totally the epitome of Shakespeare's style. It's classic. I asked maaseru this question - "Is it unusually difficult to perform?" - and she said, "It's just out of fashion."

And if you laid all those familiar lines end to end, well, you'd have just about the whole play. Can one desire too much of a good thing?

it's sad how lacking in activity this community is. we all know that kenneth is awesome, which makes us awesome by default... and as i have been in ken-fandom overdrive the last month or so, i need people to talk to about him. especially as i got my a-level results on thursday, and it turned out that kenneth has helped me to get 117/120 on my film coursework. i had to make a short film & then do an in depth study... and ken was the perfect person to deeply study. i enjoyed myself far too much, but it payed off.

peter's friends is currently atop my wishlist as i have never seen it, all i have seen is the clips on youtube, including this video:

so those of you that have seen peter's friends, without gushing too much over kenneth (or stephen, or hugh, or anyone else for that matter), what are your thoughts on it? & also, thoughts on how to kill your neighbour's dog too, please. i have seen it (in fact, i studied it alongside mary shelley's frankenstein and henry v) but i've not spoken to anyone else that has seen it.
