Things I like: Shakespeare. Joss Whedon. Last night I got to see both combined in the latest Much Ado About Nothing movie. It was so much fun! I went with my friend, Hannah, with whom I also saw Joss Whedon in person. (Needless to say, we were both way excited.) Obviously the only way to share our excitement is through a Joss Whedon-based gif movie review.
Spoiler alerts–but seriously, guys, the play is a few hundred years old.
My feelings about the cast:
The set, aka Joss Whedon’s house:
All the banter:
Everyone after the big party:
Don John setting up Hero:
Beatrice asking Benedick to fight Claudio:
What I want to tell Hero:
And of course Nathan Fillion being hilarious:
How I felt after the movie:
In all seriousness, it was really cool being in a movie theater full of people laughing out loud at one of Shakespeare’s plays. It’s a great example of how stories can transcend time and location. Human drama and romance and comedy touch all of us. And if those stories can costar Nathan Fillion, bonus.
