Most non-scouters also believe that Scouts are also very cliquey and don 't take kindly to outsiders. What those who hold on to the above stereotypes miss out on though is that all scouts come from different backgrounds and have different troop experiences.

    Though they adapt the same source material, through the skillful use of setting and cinematography, the openings of Joss Whedon’s and Kenneth Branagh’s Much Ado About Nothing present vastly different moods. Both contain sequences not featured in the text that add to their vision of Shakespeare’s original work - a triumphant and frenzied entrance in a bucolic setting for one, and an intimate abandonment in the other. Branagh’s production is a show, choosing to downplay the darker aspects of the…
