Romeo + Juliet Reviews
I think that this movie was great because it helps young people to understand it more since it is in a different setting, but still traditional because 9it has the same dialogue as the original Shakespeare play. The acting is great and when Romeo died next to Juliet that was the best acting scene it the movie. I love how the director has these creative ideas to make old things like the modern one's today, for example, the longsword is a gun. I saw a ballet of the play and it was beautiful, but when I watched this it matched up because of all the vibrant costumes and the movement of the characters. The only thing that I didn't like was how fast the movie was going, but other than that everything was good.
Awesome job by Baz Luhrmann. And i love this story by Shakespeare. About two people who were so passionately in love.
Also the soundtrack is so good!
Finally getting around to watching this movie from 20 years ago.
The style is so different that I am guessing this falls into the "love it or hate it" category. It felt a bit like Quentin Tarantino meets Shakespeare.
I found it to be interesting and like the modern adaptation. It was neat that they kept the original Shakespeare dialog. At times it was a little hard to follow, but overall it made sense.
Overall, I enjoyed it, but could certainly understand folks who didn't.
