Romeo and Juliet found in Pop Culture - Legit, Ridic, and a whole lot of animals
Here's a list of Romeo and Juliet movies I intend to hunt down and watch as part of my analysis of how Romeo and Juliet has evolved since it's original production. Some of these might seem like a stretch, but I think that's indicative of how people view Romeo and Juliet.
Anyway, here's the list (not in chronological order or necessarily the order I'll be watching them):
Gnomeo and Juliet (2011)
Romeo and Juliet - BBC (1978)
Love Story - song by Taylor Swift (2008)
Pizza My Heart - ABC Family film (2005)
Romeo + Juliet - Baz Luhrmann production (1996)
Romeo and Juliet - Frank Zeffirelli production (1968)
Rosie, Oh! Rosie, Oh! - Wishbone Classics (1995)
Romeo and Juliet: A Monkey's Tale -Animal Planet Documentary (2008)
Lion King 2: Simba's Pride - Disney Film (1998)
West Side Story - Musical version (1961)
I'll be starting with the BBC production first and then branch off to the other versions of the story. I'll start with this one because I figure it will be the 'truest' version (obviously it's the truest because it's British). I'll then use that version as a sort of benchmark to to critique the others. As far as what I'll be critiquing the films on...well, just wait a few more days and I'll finish up the play and my standards.
Final note: Any other suggestions for films, any thoughts about my plan, any standards you'd like me to critique with, any films you think I shouldn't watch?
