The Scottish Adventure (part 5)

I went to see Macbeth this evening with weasels_of_fire, penguin2, avantave, Steve and a couple of others.

I understand why some people don't like it, there were certain strained elements, but I quite enjoyed myself. This is because it was pleasantly better than Luhrman's Romeo & Juliet, which I hadn't been expecting. Plus the lack of fiscal outlay on my part tempered the inevitable thought, held by many film goers, was this worth the price of entry? I found the humour in the telling.

It wasn't The Lion In Winter, not by any stretch of the imagination, but it wasn't that bad. At least not when presented to non-paying punters and when approached with no expectations of greatness.

My thanks, also, to pornstar_440 for the extra tickets used by two of my companions.
