Ran is apparently coincidentally a lot like King Lear, but when a friend brought up the resemblance Kurosawa decided to roll with it and added more similarities and some quotes.

The Bad Sleep Well also lifts a bit from Hamlet.

Where's my Spelljammer movie you loving cowards!

Spelljammer is the most cartoon-without-a-toyline-that-only-ran-for-13-episodes-before-being-cancelled-on-a-cliffhanger-in-the-80s-esque setting that D&D has ever produced, which is impressive because it has a lot of competition on that front.

Spelljammer, Dark Sun, Planescape, Eberron, there's a lot of interesting settings in D&D that tend to get passed over for more "Tolkien with the numbers filed off" environments.

I would kill for some kind of Dark Sun adaptation, the whole idea is basically "Mad Max in a fantasy setting".

Dark Sun gets the R-rated action movie (ideally directed by George Miller), Spelljammer gets the kids' cartoon show, Eberron gets the Amazon Prime series, and Planescape gets the prestige miniseries. Deal?

Do you know how hard I would laugh if I came home one week and everyone in the house was furious that a character got airlocked, and right before they expire, this red shroud envelops them and suddenly they're in Elminster's weird beer study and that's the end of the season? I want this more than anything now.

A proper D&D movie would be Spelljammer as a framing device, and the ship visits other planets/campaign settings like Dark Sun and Eberron.

It's a shame it's almost certainly going to be Tolkien style generic fantasy. I want them to get weird and go all Planeacape Torment. There's some wildly inventive stuff on D and D. Especially with the monsters

Put an Astral Dreadnought in it. It'll be the closest we ever get to putting a Cacodemon in a movie.

Specifically because they were Sword model guns. That movie had a lot of fun with prop design.

I haven't seen it since freshman year of high school, but I distinctly remember the tight closeup on a "Sword 9mm." That's when I knew it was going to be great.

Even if it is a standard fantasy, I at least hope they use some of the more unique elements of D&D like how some spells can become 'alive' and crawl around like an amoeba spreading they spell effects, or there's a class that fight using knives created using psychic energy. Or dragons transforming into humans so they can gently caress people and have half-dragon babies. DeviantArt will love that.

Romeo + Juliet is extremely 1990s in both the best and worst senses. Itís definitely worth a watch at least once.

Romeo + Juliet is probably the best movie we watched in high school. We watched part of the 1968 version too, but I don't remember anything about that other than my teacher telling everyone to "be mature please" during that one scene.

Baz Lurhmann's general deal is that subtlety is for the weak, and it certainly works for Shakespeare and musicals.

It's a pretty good choice to show high school students too, since it's well faithful enough to the play but has fun visuals, an energetic pace, hunky boys, and you don't need to understand too much of the fancy talk to know what's going on.

Well yeah, she clearly hard blindness caused by lack of vitamin a. Not uncommon for the time. Possibly was coming down with scurvy as well.
If she didn't kill her self, she probably only had five month max anyway.
The real tragedy of the play is peoples lack of access to a good nutritious diet.

Exactly how much demand is there for "post-civil war scifi where we copy an anime", especially at the current time where Whedon projects may as well be radioactive.

Honestly a well done Firefly could be awesome. "Wild west sci-fi future" isn't exactly a super-overdone trope in mainstream cinema, so there could be a lot of fertile ground there.

But not with Joss Whedon.
