    Ah, yes I watched it simply because we did it in A2 English.
    The book is underrated, but then again so is the Tempest, it seems like mainstream works of Shakespeare, such as R&J, McBeth and Lear eclipsed all the others
    My only criticism of the play was the ****** Claudio , the most annoying literary character I ever came accross

    Othello > ALL.

    Also, the Tempest was **** to read in class. I had to read the part of the bloody troll while is basically raped the poor lass.

    I voiced Antonio in MAAN, and pretty good performance it was too.
    Never read Othello, but the story is interesting
    I saw a **** interpretation of Lear recently, it was boredom personified.
    and what troll? it was a while sinse Ive read it :unsure:

    Don't remind me about Othello. Please. :sigh:

    I either wrote a ******* amazing essay for the A2, or a ********* terrible one. Please examiner. Believe me when I say Shakespeare was a totally mindless ****-hole. Please? :sad:

    I loved Othello. I was actually considering dumping Medicine for English Lit. because of that play.

    Ah, yes, remember him. Miranda is my favourite female character from Shakespeare girls, apart from Beatrice

    Constructive criticism So if you stated clear,reasonable arguemnts as to why he was an ****-hole the examiner might rate you

    Really? Why would anyone..... :sigh:

    It's just alright, I'd say. Othello himself is a bit of a ****** retard though. But Twelfth Night? With Derek Jacobi as Malvolio that was ******* brilliant.

    I really hope I don't have an elderly, sensitive feminist reading it though - she'll probably be weeping wildly for humanity as we know it at this very moment ... out there ... in the dainty Edexcel wilderness.

    My teacher told me they select stable, un-emotional people to mark papers, so lets hope you are OK
    I wrote a slightly feministic piece in my exam. Luckily "Doll's House" came up and I did it ages ago :awesome: Oh God, I hope I do get an A in English

    Wo-hoop, I really hope your teacher's not a scheming liar. :devil:

    I'm sure you've done well. :console: There were actually a couple of identical (poetry) essay questions in our mock (that came up in the papers) that we did a few weeks previously though. :woo:

    I don't want to jinx anything. I'm quite superstitious about these things. I am ******** myself about results day though.
    (Original post by !MEna)
    Fingers crossed indeed. I just want to get it over and done with now. It feels like such a burden. I hope I can enjoy what's left of the summer and the whole of September once results day is out of the way. I haven't even thought about my 18th birthday. :woo:
    I couldn't agree more with both of these! Just want to know whats happening now, so I can sort stuff for Newcastle/BSMS/gap year.
    Hopefully you'll have a lovely birthday celebrating the fact that you're 18 and about to become a med student

    I saw that film a few days ago in London. Travolta can't act any other type of role to be honest, but he was good in this film anyway. Great action all the way through.

    As for results, seriously, good luck man! You've come this far already, I'm sure you'll make it
    Personally I think Travolta has two very different types of role - after all, Saturday Night Fever and Face/Off were hardly the same, were they? :p: (And then Kill Bill was like some gloriously weird mix of the two roles for him)

    Anyone here seen Inside Man? Saw it on DVD the other day and felt so disappointed by it. :yes:
    :lolwut: Great film. Spike Lee made it so much more than just a heist film, and Jodie Foster rules. :awesome:

    Let's make a compromise - shrewd freeloader. :p:
