I’ve seen #’s 1, 7, 8, 10, 12, and 13. I’d say that A Knight’s Tale is my favorite amongst these, but they’re all great movies. I almost rented Hamlet the other night… shucks, wish I would’ve now. Guess I’ll have to get it next time around.

The Importance of Being Earnest is absolutely hilarious – Firth and Everett were awesome. And Michael Keaton absolutely cracked me up in Much Ado About Nothing. Great list!

I’ve only seen #1,7,9, and 13. I’ve seen Hamlet, but not the version you posted. I have #7 and 13 in my collection. I love Colin Firth. And I love him in the Bridget Jones’ movies too.

Firth is great in most of his movies. He’s definitely one to watch. Now, if only I could get over my reaction to his face.. *sigh* Why are all the best character actors kinda odd looking?
