Merchant of Venice~~

The movie we watched ‘Merchant of Venice’ was originated from a play written by Shakespeare. The movie wasn’t so terrible, but it wasn’t excellent either. The beginning part of the movie was…um…terrible. That’s all I can say. If I were to see this movie by myself without any background knowledge, I will be like [...]

The Merchant of Venice Personal Response

The Merchant of Venice. Not a very catchy title. It’s not the type of title you’d see in a movie theatre and say to yourself “Wow! Look at that movie! The Merchant of Venice! Let’s go see that one!”, it’s the type of title where’d you probably say “Yeah. That one. When did we [...]
