Simultaneously the worst and best movie ever made

Actually one of my teachers watched every single version of Romeo and Juliet with the original text in front of him to prove that this was the worst version, but to his great dismay its the most accurate film adaptation of it, with the lines closest to the original text and most similar stage direction and relayed emotions.

He proceeded to show it to us in class.

Dude, seriously.  This version is actually very accurate.

My Shakespeare professor in grad school said the same thing.

I think most Shakespeare movies are just so classy and highbrow with their gorgeous period costumes and mandatory snooty elocutionary accents that people forget how goofy this play actually is. The lines, the characters, the motivations, the babyfaced teen stars, I just… oh my god it’s all so real. I’ve heard a lot of people blast Baz Luhrmann for making such a campy adaptation and it’s just like no, you don’t understand, that was all Shakespeare.

Sometimes I wonder if the real reason it’s disliked is because it was so damn popular with teenage girls.

DING

This teenage girl freaking loves it.

I feel like I should be clear that I love this version of Romeo & Juliet as well.  If nothing else, Luhrman added a bit explaining why Friar Laurence comes up with such a stupid plan.  It’s because Juliet pulls a gun on him and it’s the first thing that pops into his head.

I concur; this is a good movie and a good adaptation. The characters are believable and, as I recall, everyone does a nice job with the language. Plus I just love how they managed to modernize the setting and weapons but keep the language the same - it was very clever.

I am such a juggle nerd that I looked at this and thought “you can tell from his hand positions and that it actually is timed and located for a proper cascade, he actually does know how to juggle.”
