Richard Dreyfuss is the support, portraying The Player, leader of the group of traveling tragedians who perform for the King and Queen of Denmark. Much of the story takes place “in the wings” of Hamlet, a clever referential device where we see the events of Hamlet, but through the

I have my former compadre return and I get to sit down to watch and discuss a flick by my favorite author of all time. With that being said, I absolutely hated the fact that an IT remake even existed. Sure the original is a bit dated
