>Not without flaws but overall bretigud

TFW it's the same crew making the Assassin's Creed Movie.

It was brilliant.

I felt like there was too much CGI used for the final scenes though. The fire looked pretty fake and they could have achieved the same effect with a fog machine or something. Took me right out of the movie.

i feel like if I hadn't seen any other Macbeth adaptation i probably wouldn't have understood what was going on

I must say I haven't noticed any CGI there - still thinking it was just filtering / color-grading.
Liked it overall - cinematography, acting, potrayal of madness, but what was taking me out of the movie were the poetic dialogues. I exected them, of course, but I think it would be more striking, if they were more simple, less shakespearish.

Now, as you've watched Macbeth, go see Kurzel's "SNOWTOWN". Much more visceral experience.

Is there a chart of recommended Shakespeare adaptations?
>>
>>64667890

Needs more CGI and explosions.

There's no car chase scenes either. It's pretty bad if there's no chase scenes with cars.

Horses aren't really depicted as their real life counterpart in this movie. They need to hire consultants.

There's also no way you can wear hoodies and not be detected.

You wouldn't understand the nuances but I think the general gist of the story came across well. All the actors and actresses played their parts so well that emotion and intent was clear despite the batshit Shakespeare speak.

This, I often find the making of a great Shakespeare adaptation is you can tell the actors actually understand what they're saying and the character as a whole. A lot of the time it feels like they're just regurgitating the script and that makes it really hard to both follow the plot and empathise with the characters. This actors were excellent in this version of Macbeth, even outside Fassbender and Cotillard the guys who played Banquo and MacDuff were both great. I really enjoyed it. Costume design seemed to be trying for the Game of Thrones look a bit too much, but everything else was very good.

The globe theater performances are all really good, too. You don't fully grasp the purpose of a soliloquy until you see how much the space Shakespeare performed in encourages audience interaction

I used to think Polanski's Macbeth was the ultimate screen adaptation, until I saw this.

It just had everything a good Shakespeare adaptation needs.

The cinematography was glorious, too.

Do you think that whispering constitutes acting?
>>
>>64668033
Any modern day Shakespeare adaptation of anything but the least well known plays can and probably should assume its audience is familiar with the source material, there's really no need not to.

Sorry you're used to sitcoms where everyone shouts at each other.

Changed the source a bit too much and the lack of any accents for that region was glaring. Some staging was odd too and it was very cold and dry.
But visually is was fantastic.

Worried about AC if it keeps its release date because they have less than 12 months to wrap filming and edit.
