Hamlet Goes Business
An actual proper adaptation! How about that! And there’s even a twist!
I forgot to tell you, but I’m doing a year of film again in 2019! Woohoo! Game on!
Tucker & Dale vs. Evil
Funniest movie in years!
Rick Moranis / Dave Thomas
Sometimes I think the junior is a little too generous with the points. And sometimes I think the claims of Hamlet-embasement is really wafer thin.
The Lion King 1½
According to the internet, this film is based on Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead. Well, I’m not going to tag it as a make/remake, but if I did, it wouldn’t break the pattern methinks, no sir!
Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead

Enzo G. Castellari

The Lion King
Roger Allers / Rob Minkoff
Hailing it as a retelling of Hamlet is a bit of a stretch methinks. But alright, whatever.
