In director Baz Luhrmann's contemporary take on William Shakespeare's classic tragedy, the Montagues and Capulets have moved their ongoing feud to the sweltering suburb of Verona Beach, where Romeo and Juliet fall in love and secretly wed.

I didn't fell in love with it at first sight (ahah!) but it grew on me and now I love it and need to watch it everytime I see it on TV. Love every bit of it, the actors, the original words by Shakespeare even if the setting is the 90's, the soundtrack. Boy, how I love the soundtrack.

Good part: Some scenes were funny, and those were actually laughing-out-loud good. Some scenes were dramatic and blended the old language and modern setting perfectly. Great actors + hot young Leo The aquarium scene + the bed sheets scene Bad part: Terrible editing, looks very unprofessional. Incosistency, the movie is a chaos; it doesn't know whether it has to be funny or serious. Does every guy have to wear buttoned up Hawaii shirts? Verdict: Brilliant idea, terrible execution.

I don't care for the story of Romeo and Juliet, I don't care for romantic dramas... Both these factors + it being made in 1996, somewhat amateurly, meant that I only kept watching for Leo. (Who looks heavenly and acts of course, perfectly) The mixing of modern day (1996) culture made for a refreshing and easier watch and there were times when I was reeled in, but struggled to keep focused. If you like romantic dramas I'm sure you'll like it a lot more than me and it's a 'must watch' whether you enjoy the film or not.

Part 2 of Baz Luhrmann's Red Curtain Trilogy: 'Romeo + Juliet'.

I remember watching a little bit of this years and years back at high school and I seem to recall enjoying it a lot. I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I might've on this viewing, but it is still a film I'd recommend for More

Shakespeare is still getting work in Hollywood, and probably always will...

... but I like updated modern Shakespeare when it comes in the form of West Side Story, She's all That, Overboard (all the other million or so Rom-Coms based off of The Taming of the Shrew) and not when the film is modern More

Baz Luhrmann has relocated this classic to modern day Verona Beach and introduced a contemporary sound track to complement much of the original dialogue from the bard's story of true love, revenge and, quite possibly, the greatest tragedy ever written in the English language. The families "Montague" More
