'The course of true love never did run smooth'

This film is the saving grace for all students studying the play for their GCSE Shakespearian English paper. Pumping rampant life into what is often perceived as a tired old verse.

Everyone knows the age old story of ill fated love on the wrong side of the tracks, but this film spot on translates it into a modern context whereby the language barrier that exists for many just dissipa... read more

I actually already saw this movie but since it was a while back and since I had it on DVD, I thought I might as well check it out again.  When it was released, it was a little bit controversial since they took a classic Shakesperean play but set it in our modern time with a very flashy directing style. Eventually, this bet paid off, it turned out to be quite successful  and many similar adaptati... read more

Authentically anchored by retaining Shakespeare's text, even inserting and reciprocating popular songs, high tragedy and comedy as per the source play, Baz Luhrmann's relentlessly paced adaptation, retitled as "Romeo + Juliet", nevertheless dispenses with wearisome, derivative reverence to the 1968 film version and opts for total modification, transposing the action to the present day, reimagining... read more

Classic story of Romeo and Juliet, set in a modern-day city of Verona Beach. The Montagues and Capulets are two feuding families, whose children meet and fall in love. They have to hide their love from the world because they know that their parents will not allow them to be together. There are obstacles on the way, like Juliet's cousin, Tybalt, and Romeo's friend Mercutio, and many fights. But although it is set in modern times, it is still the same timeless story of the "star crossed lovers".

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 90’s (1036 movies items)

" Part of the Shakespeare trend of movies, Romeo + Juliet (Sorry, William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet), the Baz Luhrmann film ended up becoming a big hit, and critical hit, and audiences thought it was great, too. If anything, it catapulted Leonardo DiCaprio, into teen hunkdom, something he would try to get away from in the later 90’s, because he was uncomfortable with, and Claire Danes, into a sought after actress. There was also it’s hit soundtrack, it’s contemporary setting and use"

Kyle Ellis posted a review 8 months, 1 week ago

“Now I like Baz Luhrmann, I loved Moulin Rouge! and Australia was a much better film than people give credit for. However, I was disappointed with this version of Romeo and Juliet. I really liked the 1968 film with Leonard Whiting and Olivia Hussey though that did have one or two problems.

Starting with the redeeming qualities, the film does look amazing. The cinematography is beautiful and the scenery is gorgeous. I also liked how the Capulet party was staged, all grand and lavish and Claire Danes's white swan dress was stunning. Harold Perrineau was perfect as Mercutio yes the singing wasn't great but it was for comedy, and Pete Postlethwaite was a noble and sympathetic Friar Lawrence. Miriam Margoyles is a fine actress and brought a real sense of maternal instinct to the role o” read more

"FORMAT: 35mm PRINT QUALITY: ★★★½ NOTES: The film started off jittery on the rating card an on the first four seconds of the Fox logo, but the rest of the film was stable. Second reel was the scratchiest when Juliet is first seen in the mansion, changeovers are dirty and often abruptly cut off a second or two of film. A few frames of the lovers in the pool experienced a horizontal spice followed by a quarter-second of loud volume. Other than that, though! DATE: June 7th 2021 CINEMA: The P"

Despite breaking with convention in several ways in terms of faithfulness to the story and polarising many critics on the basis of its visual flourishes and questionable casting choices, mass appeal was achieved through the exceptional performances of two young unknowns and establishe” read more
