Okay, YES I love movies with hot gay men. And YES I love hot gay men in hot army uniforms. But, dammit! I am SO over re-interpretations of Shakespeare! Seriously, we need like, a moratorium on all silly Shakespeare adaptations for about 15 years. THEN people can start performing the ACTUAL Shakespeare again.
It seems like anyone with a camera and a head wants to do a Shakespeare remake.
"It's Hamlet... but in the middle of the Vietnam War!"
"It's Two Gentlemen of Verona... in the ghetto of Baltimore!"
"It's A Winter's Tale... except they're all time-traveling space monkeys!"
Enough! Enough! Enough!
But, despite my fury... I am tempted by gayness and militaryness. Also, hey, who knows? Maybe they'll have something novel and meaningful to say about gays, love, and gays loving in the military.
So, without further ado... enjoy the trailer for YET ANOTHER Shakespearian remake: Private Romeo.
