And here it is! Man, guys. This looks … well, it looks … quite honestly, I think it’s going to be pretty f-cking terrible.
Seriously, I don’t care how many Leonardo DiCaprios or Tobey Maguires you throw in there, when the production design for a movie sucks hard enough to drown out “talent,” there’s something to be said about said film. Like “it sucks.”
See, I was kind of confused and put off when all of that ‘Romeo + Juliet’ business happened back in ’96, but I chalked it up to the fact that I was an thirteen-year-old girl who didn’t fully understand the ways of the world. Now, granted, I’m twenty-nine years old right now, and while I understand the ways of the world much, much better than I did all those years ago, I’m still pretty convinced that Baz Luhrmann blows. He blows. There’s no other way around it.
Thanks for ruining one of my all-time favorite American literature classics, Baz.
