The Macbeth Awards
Paul and Katy have managed to watch 21 adaptations of Macbeth during the 2020 Coronavirus Lockdown! But which of them had the best Donaldbain, I hear you cry. Well we're going to settle that along with best everything else! This is the absolutely cream of the crop, so have a listen and find out all the best things about us doing this. Also, we will name the very worst adaptation of Macbeth ever made that we saw!
We did it! We reviewed every cinematic adaptation we could reasonably get our hands on without influence over time or the Thai authorities. We finish up with Macbeth 2018, a tragedy entirely in Green Screen! Are Paul and Katy ready for what is surely the future of Shakespeare? Or are they just a little over the whole thing by now? Find out! But it's the last one.
When you take Shakespeare's timeless tragedy and a North Indian folk tale and mix them all together in three languages at once and look at it through the lens of a Zack Snyder movie you get something pretty unique. But is it also good? Is this the Macbeth adaptation we've been yearning for?
Paul and Katy fail to find a banned Thai film and so have to settle for perhaps the greatest cinematic adaptation ever made! A film of sound and fury, signifying certainly enough for us to talk for an hour or so about.
Patrick Stewart is here with all his Shakespearean bombast! An adaptation of Sound and Fury and bleak 60s cold war era dystopia. Can Paul and Katy get out of the Gulag with all their bones intact? Find out only here!
Struth! It's only an Australian gangster adaptation of Macbeth. Have the Aussies found a way to make Shakespearean language work in a modern setting? Is this Baz Luhrmann or whoever directed The Craft? Find out!
Shakespeare Re-Told: Macbeth (2005)
In one of the boldest adaptations yet, Paul and Katy find Macbeth back in the kitchen! This time it's the kitchen of a three star Michelin restaurant. Will Macky B be able to murder his way to the top? Will Lady M be able to shift that damned spot with some modern hand wash? Are things so tough in Scotland that witches need day jobs in sanitation? Find out exactly here!
Āpakā svāgata hai! It's time for Paul and Katy to experience the Indian Macbeth adaptation. Will this film convincingly adapt the tragedy in to a modern day crime story, or do we have another "Men of Respect" on our hands? Will this film feature any musical numbers! All is revealed!
