I’ll admit it. I really like Shakespeare in Love. I think it’s a clever and entertaining spin on Shakespeare with a great cast. The only Oscar victory I disagree with is Gwyneth Paltrow winning Best Actress, but that takes nothing away from the quality of her performance. I just preferred Cate Blanchett in Elizabeth.
Now, in London, you can see a live adaptation of Shakespeare in Love that looks like a lot of fun. Disney Theatricals teamed up with Sonia Friedman Productions to adapt the popular romance into a stageplay.
Last year, I teamed up with the fine people at PartnersHub and Universal to give away a prize pack inspired by The Purge. This year, I get to do it again.
The Purge: Anarchy is the sequel to the surprise hit horror film The Purge and I’m super excited to check it out this weekend. Click below the jump to find out how you can win this prize pack.
It’s a very busy week. We’ve hit the ground running on the first of two stage musicals at the summer camp, so I’ve been finishing up all the rehearsal material for the campers to use at home. It’s also ConnectiCon this weekend and I’m furiously polishing all my panels and cosplay.
On Saturday at 11:30 AM, I’m debuting my panel called The Play’s the Thing: Shakespeare in Anime. This is all about Shakespeare adaptations in anime. I’ll be touching on everything from Disney’s theft of Kimba, the White Lion to the insanity of “Willy” Shakespeare writing unsuccessful plays while young Juliet Capulet hides from the vengeful dictatorship of Lord Montague in Romeo X Juliet. It’s going to be a good time. Room MR 23.
On Saturday at 9:30 PM, I’m debuting my 18+ panel called Lovecraft on the Silver Screen. Another creative title. This one is about the best, the worst, and the most confusing H.P. Lovecraft film adaptations and the pursuit of a truly great adaptation. Many film clips will be presented to an eager crowd of horror fans. Room MR 15. You must have ID and obtain a wristband at any information kiosk before you can get into 18+ panels at ConnectiCon.
I hope to see you there.
The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth has been dropping little bits of knowledge here and there the past few months. Yesterday, we got some specifics from creator Ed McMillen himself.
For those unaware, The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is a 16 bit reimagining of the breakout indie hit The Binding of Isaac. Both games are Legend of Zelda-inspired dungeon crawlers about Isaac, a young boy whose super religious mother believes God has instructed her to sacrifice him. He escapes into her basement of horrors and must fight his way down and out. It features procedurally-generated levels and a roguelike style to make each playthrough a unique experience.
This is not a drill. Do not adjust your dial. Everything is going to be okay.
Guillermo del Toro has officially announced that Pacific Rim will be taking over the world. The beautifully shot, wildly entertaining, and kick-ass female character-starring kaiju v. mecha film is getting a whole lot of new content in the next few years.
I just punched the entries into Random.org and I’m happy to announce that GreySkye is the winner. GreySkye, I need you to shoot me a message at [email protected] with your name, shipping address, and e-mail so you can get your prize straight from the company.
Thanks to everyone who entered and remember: everything is awesome!
