Just looked at Romeo and Juliet again the other day and was quite struck by it, much stuff in it I had forgotten about.

I love that movie, although I think the lead acting is terrible. Still a great movie... I'm not sure how that works, though...

my favourite thing Luhrmann changed from the play in that movie had nothing to do with the stylistic differences...i think it's so great that Juliet wakes up just as Romeo begins to die.

I JUST watched moulin rouge again. I think it gets better every time. I didn't really like it the first time i saw it.
The corpses all hang headless and limp bodies with no surprises and the blood drains down like devil’s rain we’ll bathe tonight I want your skulls I need your skulls I want your skulls I need your skulls Demon I am and face I peel to see your skin turned inside out, ’cause gotta have you on my wall gotta have you on my wall, ’cause I want your skulls I need your skulls I want your skulls I need your skulls collect the heads of little girls and put ’em on my wall hack the heads off little girls and put ’em on my wall I want your skulls I need your skulls I want your skulls I need your skulls

Moulin Rouge was a decent movie.  R&J was just plain annoying.

Luhrman exagerates everything.  He over does anything he touches to the point that you can't really appreciate any of it.

Should definately NOT have his own category.

People like Luhrman ruin everything that is good and pure about film.

as did i.

ppl hav a tendency to over-hate things to make a point, i doubt baz is bad for film at all.

original non-stupit vision = good.

I didn't hate it! I just didn't like the way they edited it. It was to "MtTv'ish". It nearly made my head explode!
