Three sentence movie reviews: The Tempest
Because Julie Taymor directed this, it is quite lovely and I must say the casting of Helen Mirren as Prosper(o/a) was interesting. However, I did not enjoy this movie version as much as I enjoyed the bare-bones Shakespeare in the Park version I watched last summer. That aside, it was not a bad way to spend two hours.

I have not seen a Shakespeare movie in ages. Like you I have really enjoyed seeing it live. I do like Jaymon Huntzu (sp) and it seems he is in this film.
