Sherlockian. Whovian. Whedonite. Neil Gaiman...ite.
That consulting detective idiot from 221B, that time-traveller fellow in that blue box of his, that hunter in a '67 Chevy Impala.

The Little Girl from the 1981 LEGO Ad is All Grown Up, and She’s Got Something to Say (via Women You Should Know)
“In 1981,” explains Giordano, “LEGOs were ‘Universal Building Sets’ and that’s exactly what they were…for boys and girls. Toys are supposed to foster creativity. But nowadays, it seems that a lot more toys already have messages built into them before a child even opens the pink or blue package. In 1981, LEGOs were simple and gender-neutral, and the creativity of the child produced the message. In 2014, it’s the reverse: the toy delivers a message to the child, and this message is weirdly about gender.”

Simultaneously the worst and best movie ever made
Actually one of my teachers watched every single version of Romeo and Juliet with the original text in front of him to prove that this was the worst version, but to his great dismay its the most accurate film adaptation of it, with the lines closest to the original text and most similar stage direction and relayed emotions.
He proceeded to show it to us in class.
The thing with shakespeare is, it works very well as modernised adaptions because it was both high and low culture at the same time. It was high falutin themes, timeless themes about humans and how they relate, with lots of mass-appeal humour and characters meant to be relatable to a broad range of people.
Shakespeare performed as it would have originally been performed is not necessarily the most ‘pure’ form, whatever that might mean. Because it won’t be understood as it was then, whereas an adaption like this is a lot truer to the general experience of being an ordinary person in the audience at an original production. You get a lot more of the references and social clues.
