I find it strange to hear Elizabethan English set in modern America. It just doesn't work for me. That said, this version of Romeo and Juliet is well acted and portrayed. It takes a lot of guts to direct Shakespeare or act in the play/movie. Good casting too.

Netflix is awesome. They have a good selection across many genres. My one complaint is there are literally thousands of great older films that are not available through their watch instantly feature. You have to get a DVD. Films like One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Bonnie and Clyde, and A Fish Called Wanda are only available through DVD. They keep adding new movies to instant watch but there's a huge backlog. Overall they're fantastic!

Jim Carrey is at his best. It took great courage and talent for Ron Howard and Jim Carrey to take on this project since the original was so good and such a classic. I'm sure there were naysayers in Hollywood who told them not to touch it, but they pulled it off. It was done in the spirit of Dr. Seuss both visually and in dialogue. It's an amazing accomplishment and one of my favorite Christmas movies. I watch it every year around Christmas.

This film was a game-changer for me. The introduction leads you to believe that the film is based on actual events and I was scared senseless, the most scared I've been since The Exorcist. Then after I saw the film I learned the film was pure fiction. I was surprised at first, then disappointed and slightly angry. I think the film makers were dishonest because they marketed it first as a documentary-type film when in reality it was just made up. Now I approach films more cautiously and I don't know what it true and what isn't. The makers of Blair Witch did a disservice to film lovers everywhere. You don't have to lie to your audience to make a scary movie. Plenty of directors have done it (e.g., Jaws, The Omen, et al).

I love John Hughes films, especially Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, the Home Alone series, the Breakfast Club, and Uncle Buck. Hughes has an eye for comic talent, especially John Candy and Steve Martin. His scripts are flawless and his film technique is perfect. The only thing I'm not crazy about is his schmaltzy endings, where everyone joins happily together as a family. I find those too predictable and trite. But overall he's a genius, a welcome break from the usual comic idiocy found in most comedies.

I've seen many of Tom Cruise's films. I believe his best work was Born on the Fourth of July. He shows true acting ability and displays a wide range of emotions. He's a good action character, as shown in Jack Reacher and the Mission Impossible series. BTW I've never believed the hype that Tom's gay. It's possible, of course, but considering he's been married three times I'd like to give him the benefit of the doubt. One more thing...he's overpaid but so are all the big stars.
