"Who Wrote Thou?" – William Shakespeare Political Thriller ANONYMOUS

If you’ve been living on planet Earth for a few years you’ll have heard of a certain playwright by the name of William Shakespeare, who’s famous works include Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Hamlet. But what if William never wrote those plays. What if everything you thought of William Shakespeare was a lie.

This is the grounding of the new film, Anonymous, where the film puts that question to us and whether the Earl of Oxford, Edward de Vere was the real writer. Looks interesting! Directed by Roland Emmerich, this political thriller has an all-star cast including Rhys Ifans, David Thewlis, Vanessa Redgrave and Derek Jacobi. The film plays out against the backdrop of the succession of Queen Elizabeth I and the Essex rebellion and features a scene of a beheading. Check out the trailer below.

I love practical effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: Tembo: The Badass Elephant, Yakuza Zero and Payday 2.
