Joss Whedon and Shakespeare Get Together

Well, I’m not entirely sure how well this will go, but it’s one of my favorite plays, if not my favorite play, by Shakespeare and I do love Joss Whedon. I guess we just have to trust him. I just have two reservations about this movie- 1) I really, really loved the earlier one (no idea when it came out and I don’t feel like looking it up but it starred Kenneth Branagh, Emma Thompson, Denzel Washington, and the dude who played Wilson on “House”) and 2) I really don’t care for Alexis Denisof, which I realize is prejudiced of me, since he’s done plenty of good things since annoying the crap out of me on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, but that was my first impression of him and I can’t shake it. “Angel” didn’t help the situation either, as the show took a serious turn for the worst once the Irish guy was killed and he showed up. But I did like him “Dollhouse”, the few episodes he was on. And yes, I am a Whedonite. I said I was a nerd.
