On Sunday (21st June 2015), I’m hosting Movie Talk on Sunday (#MTOS) on Twitter at 8pm GMT.
I’ll post a question every 10 minutes from my Twitter handle (@dhruvis). You can join in the discussion by tweeting your answer beginning with the question number and hashtagging #MTOS.
I’ve chosen to discuss Shakespeare’s film adaptations.
Here are the questions:
Q 1. Do you think Shakespeare’s works are universal and can be adapted to screen even today?
Q 2. Which is your favourite film adaptation of Shakespeare’s work?
Q 3. Some film adaptations of Shakespeare’s work retain the world and language while some have their own take. Which do you prefer?
Q 4. Which is your favourite film rendition of a line originally written by Shakespeare?
Q 5. Which actors have given us some of the best portrayals of characters from Shakespeare’s works?
Q 6. Which director has successfully adapted and done justice to a work of Shakespeare?
Q 7. Which genre of Shakespeare’s work (comedy, tragedy, romance or history) is best suited for screen? Why?
Q 8. Have you watched different film adaptations of any one of Shakespeare’s works? Which one did you like best?
Q 9. Which adaptation of Shakespeare’s work totally missed the point and gave you the feeling you were sitting through a lecture?
Q 10. If you had to adapt one of Shakespeare’s works for screen, which one would you pick? Why?
See you online on Sunday!
