Macbeth (2015)

It’s a mighty task to boil the Bard’s classics down to a tight yet meaningful running time and maintain a degree of cinematic quality.

Troy (2004)

I found this picture fairly enjoyable. The characters were well established. Motivations weren’t entirely clouded, and there belief systems were clearly defined even though it was depicting an all but mythological time. 384 more words
