Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today.

Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.

RAVE: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead
tea_bug
&nbspFirst off I have to say that I love how we dig into these things we watch and read. I never would have consciously figured any of it out without discussing it.
I love how at the beginning they keep flipping the coin and it always landing on heads. And I never would have been like hey that symbolizes something is not right here. Even though I would have known it, I never would have consciously realized it. I also like how at the beginning they are trying to remember the very first memory they have and it’s them meeting the messenger to take them to the king. That being the symbolism of them not having a purpose other than to be in the play of Hamlet.
The other thing I really like is how they just flash to new scenes like its nothing. Like no time passes from the one moment to the other. And I like whoever said in class that’s it’s because they don’t appear in other scenes so it’s not part of their story. So all you see is their part of the story. Which is really cool when you think about it. Especially how its kinda showing how characters have their own world and they are made for that world.
I also like how they only take Shakespearean to the characters in the play and when they are together they are talking normally. Like I’ll understand part of it because they are talking normally but then again I’ll totally miss everything (even though we already discussed it) and then not know what is going on all that much.
Haha I guess I just like this whole movie cause I have more to say about it. I liked how you kinda see the behind the scenes stuff. Like in the actually Hamlet play you see everything that just deals with Hamlet. But with this movie you see what’s happening between the actors and R&G (that’s what I call them because I can’t spell their names) and just what you normally wouldn’t see. Like the bedroom scene where Hamlet is yelling at his mother and kills Polonius. In the play you kinda get the opinion that Polonius just yelled out to try to save the queen. But in the movie they scare Polonius and that’s why he yells. Gives it another way to look at it.
I really enjoyed it over all as you probably can tell. :D

All the right friends in all the right places

They've got
All the right moves in all the right faces
So yeah, we're going down

Let's paint the picture
Of the perfect place
They've got it better then when anyone's told ya
They'll be the King of Hearts, and your the Queen of Spades
Then we'll fight for you like we were your soldiers

I know we've got it good
But they've got it made
And the grass is getting greener each day
I know things are looking up, but soon they'll take us down
Before anybody's knowing our name

They've got... 

All the right friends in all the right places
So yeah, we're going down

Yeah, we're going down
They say
Everybody knows, everybody knows where we're going
Yeah, we're going down

Do you think I'm special?
Do you think I'm nice?
Am I bright enough to shine in your spaces?
Between the noise you hear, and the sounds you like
Are we just sinking the ocean of faces?
It can't be possible... the rain can fall
Only when it's over our heads.
The sun is shining everyday, but it's far away.
Over the world that's dead.

They've got, they've got... 

All the right friends in all the right places
So yeah, we're going down
They've got
All the right moves in all the right faces
So yeah, we're going down
[Repeat]

They say
Everybody knows, everybody knows where we're going
Yeah, we're going down
They say
Everybody knows, everybody knows where we're going
Yeah, we're going down

It don't matter what you see
I know I could never be
Someone that'll look like you.
It don't matter what you say
I know I could never fake
Someone that could sound like you.

All the right friends in all the right places
So yeah, we're going down
They've got
All the right moves in all the right faces
So yeah, we're going down
[Repeat]

They say
Everybody knows, everybody knows where we're going
Yeah, we're going down
They say
Everybody knows, everybody knows where we're going
Yeah, we're going down
