    Like a bad musical, I walked away from this humming the costumes and art direction. This is Romeo and Juliet for the Abercrombie & Fitch crowd.

    I totally disagree! Emotional, visually stunning, great cast, great score. This is not a play, it is a movie.

    I agree with Debbie; this movie was emotionally charged and Paul Giamatti performance was exceptional. This movie is just as good as the original in 1969 (that I also saw).

    That’s great that you disagree!, that’s what makes for good discussion. Although I feel saying it is “emotionally charged” or “good as the 1968 version” is a bit of a stretch IMHO. The leads had zero chemistry together. Someone said this is Shakespeare for the Abercrombie crowd, and I couldn’t agree more, the dialogue was dumbed down in such a way that it lost the beauty of his words. This isn’t an adaptation, it’s a reimagining that only focused on the main points, basically it’s the sparksnotes version.

    I enjoyed the movie nonetheless.
