I haven't seen his Hamlet yet (its length intimidates me), but for now, my favorite and his best in my eyes is Henry V. I've yet to see a Shakespeare adaptation that even comes close (not counting movies loosely based on Shakespeare like Ran or West Side Story).

See, Much Ado is good and inherently enjoyable, but it's short running length excises some connective tissue that Whedon left intact. In terms of talent and vision I regard them as equals but Whedons was the more complete version.

I agree, I found Whedon's to be superior.

Huh. I think Ian just lost his crown as the biggest Kenneth Branagh fan.

Twas never a crown I wore to begin with - I just find it natural to praise him at whatever opportunity I get. Much like you and Joss Whedon!

Saw Hamlet last night and my initial impressions are that it's beautiful film with lot of great performances from Jacobi, Christie, Briers, and Branagh (most of the time). However, it also didn't need to be four hours long, most of the Americans let it down (Heston being the exception), and Branagh lays it on too thick when called upon to play Hamlet feigning madness. Still, the graveyard scene and the duel at the end were awesome.
