A while ago I wrote a post comparing Joss Whedon and William Shakespeare and pulling J.K. Rowling into the mix. Unless you live under a rock, you probably know that Joss and Will are now closely allied in a way that I did not even come close to imagining. I want to see Much Ado About Nothing. Also, people in the blogosphere who are bigger Whedon fans than I are now listing other Shakespearian works that they think should get a Whedonesque twist. Good times.
In other movie news, Superman strikes again, but, the best news of the summer to my mind is the Julie Delpy/Ethan Hawke sequel Before Midnight. Oh Yeah. If you haven’t seen Before Sunrise and Before Sunset, watch them first. I plan to revisit those two, then go see the new movie.
What might tempt you into the theatre this summer?
