There was, of course, an increase in heart attacks and traffic accidents as people panicked trying to escape the ghost deer.
A significant decline in dementors as well.
Simultaneously the worst and best movie ever made
Actually one of my teachers watched every single version of Romeo and Juliet with the original text in front of him to prove that this was the worst version, but to his great dismay its the most accurate film adaptation of it, with the lines closest to the original text and most similar stage direction and relayed emotions.
He proceeded to show it to us in class.
The thing with shakespeare is, it works very well as modernised adaptions because it was both high and low culture at the same time. It was high falutin themes, timeless themes about humans and how they relate, with lots of mass-appeal humour and characters meant to be relatable to a broad range of people.
Shakespeare performed as it would have originally been performed is not necessarily the most ‘pure’ form, whatever that might mean. Because it won’t be understood as it was then, whereas an adaption like this is a lot truer to the general experience of being an ordinary person in the audience at an original production. You get a lot more of the references and social clues.
It’s beautiful and if you don’t think so you’re wrong.

Plus they placed this particular scene very well.
