Romeo and Juliet - Bahz Laurman version with volume up R&J Franco Zeffirelli version, volume turned down (seen at the same time to compare the two for english).

The BL one is way better IMO! It is quicker paced and better colour and cinamitography which I love!

No, and I wanted to, because I loved Clive Owen in Gosford Park.

survivorgirl, i'm right there with you. LOVE luhrmann's version, which is one of the only ones to use peole anywhere near teenagers in the leads (cuz, really, come on, that kind of handwringing doesn't ring true if you're in, say, your 30s). the way he modernized the visuals while keeping the language intact is just amazing.

go check out the other two entries in his "red curtain trilogy": 'strictly ballroom' and 'moulin rouge'. all 3 of 'em are real love-em-or-hate-em type movies.

it was the first of the 3, so before B.L. had made his name at all, and stars nobody you've ever heard of outside australia. this all makes it a little harder to find than the other two, but it's just as good, so keep on the lookout!

Wow! Buck and I watched "Ray" with Jamie Foxx. What a great film!

We were amazed at what a great impersonation Jamie Foxx created. He WAS Ray Charles.

I grew up with Ray and was aware of his tumultous life. He was quite wild. Still, he was such a talented man. We loved the film.

Last night we watched a movie called "Sleeping Dogs Lie". It was a low budget film but all in all it wasn't bad.
