Romeo and Juliet

Photo: Try typing romeo and juliet into google images. Pictures upon pictures of Leonardo Dicaprio's version litter the selection. The 2013 version? You'll feel like you've sat through a remake of Leo's Romeo but in the time setting that it was meant for (rather than the modern version). You can't top Leo's version with blind luck. This movie attempted to redo an already well done concept (something that is common of late, unfortunately). The actors probably weren't new but were uncommon to the big screen (except for the guy from Gossip Girl - Chuck). If you're in the mood for Shakespeare, take your chances. But you're better off just reading the book.
