Romeo and Juliet trailer: not another teen romance

Ack! These kids today, with their blood feuds and their dueling and their all-night masquerade balls.

I wonder how it ends…

    That looks like it will be the best new show on the CW this season.

    This looks pretty good. The lead actors already seem to have a more solid command of the language than most of their predecessors (the less said about DiCaprio and Danes the better). And the supporting cast is excellent. I’ll definitely give it a shot.

    “Juliet is a Capulet. The Capulets and Montagues are mortal enemies!”

    I love that line. It’s such a timeless Shakespearean classic, right up there with “I wonder if I should kill myself” from Hamlet.

    So this is adapted by Downton Abbey‘s Julian Fellowes, I see. He’d better not kill anyone off!

    Hmmm. Downton Romeo? I’m not sure that younger people will much care that Julian Fellowes adapted this version; and some of the biggest Shakespeare geeks might be either skeptical or outright horrified.

    But what the hey, every generation should take a bite of the Bard. There’s a reason this play is a perennial.

    I kinda like DiCaprio and Danes. They didn’t always nail the language, but they understood the poetry of the play.

    Snort! x3

    Unfortunately, I think this is about right.

    Hey, don’t joke about the ending. It’s been done. Many times.

    I find the combination of Shakespearean and modern dialogue a… courageous move.
