{{ Nice Chris, about to crack open a barrel and give it a watch, many of these fan made films turn out to be considerably better than the studio efforts. }}

{ Alien fan film was quite good,liked the setting and main actor, effects are ropey as anythng but they get the job done.

Talking effects love this sort of stuff, and if you have never seen the film in question I highly recommend it, perfect lazy Sunday tv, and great one if you've young kids about. }}

{{ I happened to catch, part the way through, the other day one of my all time favourite Shakespeare adaptations, Brannaghs first and in my view probably his best, Henry V. And more it happened to be on one of my very favourite scenes- the uncovering of the Traitors at Southampton.



You've got to really feel the pain of the poor actor playing Scrope, that slap was not in the script and apparently came as a bit of a surprise! It was also according to the actor incredibly painful. Painful? You just got slapped by Brian Blessed! I'm amazed he was still able to stay upright. But credit to him for going with it and not breaking character.
Being hit by Brian Blessed must be akin to being hit by a truck.
Talking Blessed this is an incredible scene from him-



and that suit of armour is not a prop, not only is it real armour, it's his own he brought with him for the film! Why am I not at all surprised Brian Blessed has a suit of personal armour. Probably wears it to go to the shops.
But the cast of this film for a Shakespeare fan is unrivalled in cinema in my view; Kenneth Brannagh, Derek Jacobi, Ian Holm, Judi Dench, Brian Blessed, Robbie Coltrane, Richard Briers, Paul Schofield, Robert Stephens, Christopher Ravenscroft, Geraldine McEwan, Michael Maloney and more it's a whose who of the greatest stage, tv, film and especially Shakespearean actors the UK has ever had to offer. A golden generation of actors to whom Shakespeare's words come from the lips as naturally as does modern language. }}

Henry V was a revelation, the first demonstration to many people of how accessible Shakespeare could be.  After I saw it the first time I dragged some friends to see it, and after the king's tirade to Halfleur ("Will you yield and this avoid, or guilty in defence, be thus destroyed?") a friend turned to me and said "I'd surrender too!".   It was far above his other efforts of Hamlet and Much Ado about Nothing.

I could have sworn I had a copy of it, but looking around don't see it.  That needs to be amended.

I do have a copy of Othello, and though Branagh didn't direct it he was in it, and one critic said at the time he was the only living actor who could make Shakespeare sound like street language.
