The humanity of it...

I just spent the evening at Bill's, catching up with good friends over good food (and better beer, despite the confusing nomenclature).

During, we discussed Baz Luhrmann's divisive Romeo + Juliet. Is the film a brilliant, modern retelling of a classic, or a disjointed mash-up that missed the mark? Personally, I'm strongly "Team Baz", and Peter Parker gets why. The famous webslinger once argued (Ultimate Marvel Team-up #16 - oh yeah!) that Shakespeare's greatest trait is that his work can be transposed indefinitely, without change, and still hold up. I think that's true.

So yes, Spiderman is my authority on Shakespeare. Who knew?
