Three sentence movie reviews: William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet
The first few minutes of this movie had me wondering if I was going to like it this time around, because I had fond memories from my first viewing when it was originally released, but this time I found the introduction incredibly obnoxious. But once Leonardo DiCaprio and Clare Danes showed up I loved it all over again. There was a lot of kissing–the poster is quite accurate in its representation.
Cost: Free from Library
Where watched: At home.
ps: I almost couldn’t find this in the library catalog because it’s not Romeo & Juliet it’s Romeo plus sign Juliet. So now I call it that in my mind. It’s also from the era of movies needing to tell us who their famous authors are, as if we don’t already know. I recall “Nathaniel Hawthorne’s Scarlet Letter” also being a title of the same era.
