With the Rock Star at band practice, I typically watch two movies I’ve never seen before that dear ol Ben has no desire to watch. Tonight instead of a second new (to me) movie, I decided to watch an old favourite. And it’s beautifully ’90s and horribly cheesy, but I love Luhrmann (the director) so much. The movie, of course is William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.
***Did you see how young they were?!?! ***
Although, I’ve got to say this: Romeo has always fucking irritated me. He’s so whiny. Does anybody else think so? He’s constantly moping about and crying over something. Romeo is the first emo.
There. Admitted I absolutely love a cheesy ’90s movie and somehow managed sacrilege on “one of the greatest love stories of all time.” Not bad for a Tuesday night.
–Although, honestly, I think the whole “love” aspect of the story of Romeo and Juliet is overplayed. But that’s a much longer story.
