Hamlet, starring David Tennant and Sir Patrick Stewart.

Three hours of unbridled genius. A masterpiece.

I tried to watch it, but I gave up after the second scene. I just couldn't stand that they modernised it.

Really? Well, they stayed totally faithful to the original play in dialogue and presentation... I can see how the costumes and settings may have jarred (a scene later on where Hamlet is surrounded by what appears to be a Middle Eastern invasion force, with armour and SA80s and everything) but overall found it totally engrossing performance-wise, so didn't mind the 21st Century setting.

Still, each to their own, and sorry to hear it didn't click with you. :(

It was the costumes that I couldn't stand. I also think that they could have edited it down a bit. Most of the Hamlet films I've seen cut out some of the dialogue or scenes to keep the pace moving. Here I felt that it was just far too slow moving.
