Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead

My favorite movie is, according to Amazon, going to be available on DVD a day before my birthday this year! Woo hoo! To say I ordered it quickly is an understatement.

I once, at 17, signed up for a Blockbuster video card because they were the only place that had the movie on VHS. I borrowed it and never intended to return it. They eventually sent me a notice saying I owed $99.95 or something (the cost of the movie). My dad went in to Blockbuster and argued that they'd made a contract with a minor, and all the fees were removed.

But I had to return the movie. 😛

Years later I found it on VHS and bought a copy, which I now own. My VCR, however, hasn't been unpacked since I moved to Erie. My favorite movie on DVD… yay!

  1. I LOVE that movie. Haven't thought of it for a while. Cool beans.

  2. It has been a while since I have seen it, so I am not sure why I tend to confuse it with Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure.

  3. The question is, what do you think of the original play? I've both read the latter and seen the movie, and I liked the play a bit more, but the movie certainly made some excellent extrapolations from the text. I especially enjoy the scene on the tennis court.

  4. I've read the play, and I liked it. I've never seen it performed. I liked the book equally as well as the movie - I think the actors pulled it off extremely well, and I'm not certain a better cast could have been assembled.

  5. Through no input of our own, the TiVo recorded this movie a few days ago. I've never seen it, but have always heard good things about it. So a viewing will take place within the week, I'm sure.
