Kids flood school to get out of exam @ 11:04 am

After the Indiana Jones, and Star Wars trilogies there is only one film I can think of that truly deserves to be on DVD. Branagh's Hamlet is probably one of the single finest pieces of film I've ever seen. Branagh is a genius and this film really shows off his talents.

Unfortunately the only way one can see it is to get a copy of the VHS tape. Considering that I have no VCR, that doesn't really help me. Why after all these years of DVDs is Hamlet still encumbered by legal issues. I will pay good american dollars for a copy of this movie! Why don't they want my money!?!

He did get a little upstaged by the giant steam powered spider though...

Not even Alec Baldwin can compete with a giant metal spider.

I have been wondering this for years. I'd pay well more than for a normal movie to have it on DVD.

Branagh's Hamlet is probably one of the single finest pieces of film I've ever seen.

Agree completely.

Oh, easily. I was thinking $50 or $60, since it would probably need to be two discs... it's so visually stunning that they'd want to keep the bitrate up, and it's long as fuck...

and omg, if there were special features? *dead*

I only came here because I saw it linked to from perturb.org. Saw a "pick the candidate you would vote for" page hosted by perturb but had no way of contacting the author. Anyway, I came up 67% Kerry and 33% Bush.

The problem is that I am a politics junkie and have followed these campaigns extensively. I know their policy proposals, and I know I prefer Kerry's policy on every single issue mentioned (And for that matter, I would Prefer Nader's position or Cobb's position on every single issue mentioned over Kerry's). But in the poll, such meaningless statements were sucked off of the campaign websites, the positions weren't really stated. It was basically a choice between two different wordings of "we'll improve everything". Some were sufficient, but several don't do the candidates' actual positions an ounce of justice.

Now, obviously no candidate poll is going to be perfect, but any poll that would put my support for a guy like Bush at 33% is fatally flawed. Most any poll I've ever taken that tries to match me with a candidate puts him at 0-5%, really. You might say no big deal, who cares, and I imagine you're right, but I think it's really a disservice to tell people they should vote for someone they really shouldn't. As if the American voter isn't already confused and apathetic enough with the horrendous coverage our media gives...we don't need to add fuel to the misinformation fire.
