New Hamlet

I have now seen another version of Hamlet. It had David Tennant in it as Hamlet instead of Derek Jacobi. Both are very nice, they give me ideas for stories...
Patrick Stewart was Claudius again but he had a more modern beard this time. In fact all the mannys were dressed modern and had guns and cameras and things so I was confused if it was proper Shakespeare or not. But then there was a swordfight and everyone died at the end so I knew it was.
My best bits were the funeral scene when Hamlet fights with Laertes. Then Hamlet mentions cats.

"Let Hercules himself do what he may,
The cat will mew and dog will have his day."
