    Sounds like everyone has forgotten Mel Gibson's Hamlet. This made me curious so I went googling bad Shakespeare adaptations and this page has some pretty interesting suggestions, most of which I had not heard of (Cymbeline? Also with Ethan Hawke?).

    Branagh's Hamlet set an impossibly high bar I think, including for himself. I can't think of a better film version of Shakespeare. As for Emma Thompson, she is every bit as talented as Branagh, and I feel it unnecessary to take sides over their long-ended relationship. It's a shame that their personal relationship ended in a way that they felt no longer able to work together.

    I don't know ... Ethan Hawke's Hamlet was pretty bad. And if there's one that is truly worthy of this show, I'd say it was Ian McKellan's Richard III.

    As far as my memory of this movie goes it was far from the worse Shakespeare adaptation ever.

    Interesting. I have never seen this version of Love Labour’s Lost even though, as an English major I wrote a paper on modern adaptations of Shakespeare around this time. Mostly because it’s not my fave Shakespeare play. And also, though I know nothing of the circumstances of their split, I took Emma Thompson’s side in her divorce from Branagh. Because she is objectively better. eta: instincts confirmed. I googled it. He had an affair.

    I haven't listened to the mini-episode, but I just learned what next week's movie is and I am outraged! I love Love's Labour's Lost!
