    Do you mean the recent Baz Luhrman one? Because I LOVE that movie too!! I finally got some money (x-mas money) and went out and bought it so I don't have to rent it all the time anymore! GREAT movie. Baz is an awesome director. I mean, he's the guy that created Moulin Rouge!

    It's one of my favorite movies. It's a beautiful yet kind of depressing story.

    it's so horrible. It butchers Shakespeare's story. You people are evil.

    kjhippielove88, that's the version I mean. I was just clarifying if it was the one from like the 60's or the one from the 90's.

    I think it’s a fantastic movie! Baz Lhurman is the only director i know who can incorporate Shakespearean dialect as well as 14th Century concepts into a modern setting.
    It doesn't butcher Shakespears play at all! It merely tries to create, a modern version, whilst still keeping a strong essance of the original play.
    Of course with Claire Danes and DiCaprio leading... not much can go wrong.

    This version of Romeo and Juliet was ok, but I love the one filmed in 68.
    Olivia Hussey, played juliet, very good movie.

    Franco Zeffirelli's version (1968) is BY FAR superior to Luhrmann's version. Beautiful, beautiful film.

    i like the original one. i think it's alot better than that new one with leonardo di caprio. damn, i even did a report on how i thought it was better. how do you people remember these people's names? do you look them up before you type it, or do you just have thst good of a memory?
