    I hated this. If you're making a version of Shakespeare there are multiple ways you can do it. Traditional, Modern but with original text, Modern with modern text. Choose one and stick with it. My Own Private Idaho chooses a modern retelling of Henry IV but can't decide whether it's to be played seriously with natural acting or comedic with "Shakespeare" style acting and because it switches between the two it ends up being a horrible mess!

    Warcraft 2016

    ★★★★½ Watched 30 May, 2016 2

    Duncan Jones' Warcraft movie would have been perfect had it not had a very confusing beginning and woefully miscast Dominic Cooper as King Llane Wrynn.

    I loved the main characters of Garona (Paula Patton), Lothar (Travis Fimmel) and Khadgar (Ben Schnetzer) and thought the three of them worked really well together. Garona in particular stood out for me because of her personal journey through the story.
