Hamlet Hum

Certainly can't complain at Patrick Stewart as Claudius and the Ghost, but not entirely convinced by David Tennant's Hamlet, particularly during the scenes with Ophelia. Ophelia was good though.

Laertes was a tit, but then I guess Laertes is a bit of a tit so maybe that was just well acted...  But I think I prefer him more angry and less... prattish. 

On the whole, thinking that Hamlet probably works better on the stage than as a film, though the references to CCTV were quite clever and would have been a bit more difficult to do on stage probably.
