Just Watched Tragedy of Macbeth..Did Not Understand 95% of the Dialogue
 

 
I was about to switch off the movie 10mins into it

The Shakespearian dialogue was full on, I am sure some of you Boxden nerds will pretend to be experts in Shakespeare now "I understood every word"

But I watched the movie to the end because of the visuals and Denzel.

I was able to read between the lines and figure out the gist of the story

I should have paid attention in school when we were forced to read Macbeth

Good flick 7/10

Visually and performance wise everything was on point

I am sure those that are deep into Shakespeare's writing will enjoy it far more

nah, there's no benefit to understanding this drivel gibberish unless you wanna live like them people lived

Doubtful it stood;
As two spent swimmers, that do cling together
And choke their art. The merciless Macdonwald--
Worthy to be a rebel, for to that
The multiplying villanies of nature
Do swarm upon him--from the western isles
Of kerns and gallowglasses is supplied;
And fortune, on his damned quarrel smiling,
Show'd like a rebel's wh*re: but all's too weak:
For brave Macbeth--well he deserves that name--
Disdaining fortune, with his brandish'd steel,
Which smoked with bloody execution,
Like valour's minion carved out his passage
Till he faced the slave;
Which ne'er shook hands, nor bade farewell to him,
Till he unseam'd him from the nave to the chaps,
And fix'd his head upon our battlements.

Completely forgot about this man this is the Coen joint with Denzel in it huh? Should be interesting. I love how there is a renaissance of old literature in film now The Green Knight, The Last Duel and hopefully this.

Hey op did you at least ever watch the 90s Shakespeare remix movie joints when that was a trend. That made it a lot easier for people to get into my faves were Romeo + Juliet, O, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead.

Personally I think Shakespeare is overrated and no I am not punching down on him he is still fu*king Shakespeare but there were so many more interesting poets of the time. My fave is John Wilmot the 2nd earl of Rochester. They actually did have a decent movie of him with Johnny depp back in the day too The Libertine.

Yeah, I was really paying attention to the dialogue and was still lost. But I don’t get why it’s called tragedy of Macbeth should be tragedy of macduff

Shakespeare is something I appreciate much more than actually enjoy, and that applies to this film.

It was well-made and fine to look at it, but if I have to work triple time just to understand a quarter of the dialogue, I'm not sure it's worth my time.
