We few, we happy few, we Band of Sisters; For she to-day that shares her e-friendship with me Shall be my sister;
OK. So it isn't the "St. Crispin Day" monologue from Hank V.
So sue me, already.
But anybody who knows me reallyreally well, knows three things:
1. I worship Kenneth Branagh's Henry V.
2. I can't find enough reasons to manipulate the "band of brothers" line from the "St. Crispin's Day" monologue.
3. I loves me my Bellas.
Many Italians give their friends gifts on their own birthdays. I'm just saying grazie mille to you for how magnificently you showed me the love yesterday by giving you a
Gift of tHANKs (V)
He was unsure of himself, yet he was powerful in uniting his men at Agincourt with the famous, rousing SCD mono.
He was a valiant warrior, fighting beside his men, pissed as hell when the enemy slaughtered the boys carrying English banners into battle.
And after those vile, stunning, glorious battle scenes, Henry cleans up real well and becomes every English Major's Dream, delivering what was, like, the best rap ever by a guy trying to pick up a chick who doesn't speak his language.
Have you seen Branagh's Henry V? Forget not being able to pick up half of what's being said, what did you think of dreamy Hank himself? (yes, I know my summa cum laude sticker's gonna be rescinded by the hoity-toity police for that one). What are your favorite Shakespeare plays -- or -- more important, what are your favorite romance novels based around Shakespeare's works?
If you haven't studied Shakespeare, just tell us if you've seen any good Kenneth Branagh films, or, perhaps like me, you think he was at his best when he was with Emma Thompson...
