Hollywood rips off Shakespeare: Henry V & Independence Day

Hollywood rips off Shakespeare: Henry V & Independence Day August 20, 2010

Today a friend posted Kenneth Branagh’s St Crispan’s Day Speech from Henry V  on Facebook and I was reminded of one of Hollywood’s great rip offs of Shakespeare. Listen, compare it with Bill Pullman’s Independence Day speech from the film … enjoy! True, it’s old news, but a good example of extreme intertextuality!
