Most unlikely selling point ever

From the cover of the DVD of Titus:

A film by Julie Taymor, acclaimed creator and director of Broadway's "The Lion King"

[have sudden mental image of Titus Andronicus singing 'Circle of Life']

Yes and Ian McKellen's Lear was being promoted using such gems as "Star of X - Men and The Da Vinci Code". Heh.

szerelem: Such possibilities there.

"As flies to wanton boys are we to Magneto - he uses us for his sport"

"Blow Storm! and crack your cheeks! rage, blow!
your cataracts and hurricanes spout,
till you have drenched our steeples, drown'd the cocks!
You, Cyclops, with your thought-executing fires,
Vaunt-courier to oak-cleaving thunderbolts,
Singe my white head! And thou, all-shaking Rogue,
Smite flat the thick rotundity o' the world!
Crack nature's moulds, and germens spill at once,
That make ingrateful man!
..How much sharper than a serpent's tooth is the sting of Wolverine's claw!"
