When i first saw this movie, i was stunned. The train of thought was so abstract and different from the story and original movie, and personally i though it was brilliant. The amazing soundtrack didn't hurt much either. What are your thoughts on this movie?

The new one or the old one?

Like most movies based off of Shakespere, it stayed true to the original book. One of my favorite books too, so while the modern perspective was a little different, it really worked out well.

the DiCaprio one? The cinematography was great and it was very well made and acted, but the premise was really, really lame.

by original, i meant the first movie, the one that mirrored the play. i am aware it's a play.

There's a lot more than two adaptations. I assume you're talking about the Baz Luhrmann one, which I thought it was quite poor. The Zeffirelli one, however, was stunning.

the one with the title Romeo + Juliet, with Leonardo DiCaprio

The "What is a Youth" song was so awesome I actually wrote a guitar arrangement. I love the Zefirelli movie. The acting is incredibly corny, but it works so well.

I like Luhmann's postmodern take on a classical work. Some parts of it were silly, but Shakespeare wrote silly stuff that townspeople of his time would relate with, so it fits. It's actually one of the only DiCaprio movies I like

I thought it was just as dumb as the version of Hamlet with Ethan Hawke.

God I hate Ethan Hawke.

it's not a book, it's a play

I like the modern one, it just seems less slushy, and chick-flicky, it's like an action film
"You're a twat!"- That dude in morrisons

"You Ugly git!" - That girl in the restaurant

"You Were a Mistake!" - Mum

just a few of my fans..

It doesn't help that Romeo and Juliet is my least favorite play by shakespeare. Hamlet and Titus Andronicus are amazing.

I'd totally tap Juliet, if I remember that movie correctly.
