%%* * EvilUncle: Claudius.Claudius. He murdered his brother to gain the throne, and married his brother's wife to secure it - and plots to have Hamlet killed as soon as he gets wind that Hamlet means him trouble, but this crosses over with good old ProperlyParanoid.

* A 1996 film starring and directed by Creator/KennethBranagh. This is a highly lavish, cinematic full-text[[note]]with the exception of a few transposed lines, and thus clocking in at around 246 minutes long[[/note]] version set in the 1800s, which includes Creator/BrianBlessed (as the Ghost) and a FallingChandelierOfDoom. With Creator/KateWinslet as Ophelia. Oh, and Creator/RobinWilliams as Osric, and Billy Crystal as the gravedigger.[[note]]The AllStarCast also includes Julie Christie as Gertrude, Jack Lemmon as Marcellus, Charlton Heston as the King of the play, Richard Attenborough as the English Ambassador, and Dame Creator/JudiDench and Sir John Gielgud as Hecuba and Priam of Troy.[[/note]] It's essentially ''Hamlet'' as an EpicMovie. Not financially successful, but critically acclaimed with some even calling it the greatest onscreen adaptation of Shakespeare. Was nominated for an Oscar for best adapted screenplay (which led to a lot of jokes in theatrical circles on who ''technically'' wrote the script). This adaptation is significant among film buffs for being the last visual narrative production shot entirely on 70 millimeter film for 16 years, before the the 2012 film ''Film/TheMaster''.

** "He will stay till ye come." (Hamlet about Polonius' body)
** Hamlet quips that Polonius is at a feast, "not where he eats, but where he is eaten" (by worms). Hamlet has many darkly humorous lines, especially when he's [[ObfuscatingInsanity faking insanity]].
