Differences Between Romeo And Juliet Play And Movie

Improved Essays
The Romeo and Juliet 1968 version is a movie you should watch if you are a new Shakespearean learner. This movie shows and demonstrates almost everything that you would feel if, you were to see Shakespeare put on a play. In my opinion the chemistry between all of the characters was phenomenal. It made me feel as if I was apart of the movie and saw all of this unfold in Verona. Also the comic relief that the Nurse and Mercutio supplied was phenomenal in my perspective. Also finally the locations of the scene where spectacular you felt as if you were in 1594 production of Romeo and Juliet.
The on screen chemistry between all the characters was amazing. I felt that each and every character had actually felt that between each other on-set while filming as well as off set. For example, we know that Lady Capulet and Lord Capulet hate each other and in the beginning when we met them the way lady Capulet roles her eyes at him, showed how much they actually loved each other.

Also the movie did a great job at demonstrating eternal love. They were able to demonstrate of how the love of Romeo and Juliet was still there even after they died. They comic relief was fantastic and without it, the movie would be a total emotional rollercoaster. The scene that Zefferelly chose did a great job at portraying the emotion even before the actors even came out and did their job. Finally, my favorite aspect of the movie was the on-screen chemistry, it just helped me understand the movie because it just gave that connection between the actions and the lines. In general, this movie is a great interpretation of how Shakespeare wanted us to feel, and would help new Shakespearean readers understand what Shakespeare wanted us to visualize. I would recommend this movie to almost anyone, however there are some mature scenes, so you should watch at your own

    While the story of Romeo and Juliet is tragic, it remains a beautiful love story because Shakespeare so vividly describes a love that is passionate and pure and powerful. *slide* Quotes from the play have continued to influence love poems, stories and declarations ever since. “Parting is such sweet sorrow!” “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” The aesthetic skill with which Shakespeare wrote of the love between his characters made these words enduring and words that anyone who has fallen madly in love can relate to. The power of love is undoubtedly one of the most popular universal themes, because people enjoy romance, the idea of soulmates, and they want to believe in the idea of a one true love for us all. The story is exciting, filled with drama, murder, tragedy and conflict.…

    Also, I think the lighting designer did a great job in the scenes when the “Live Band” was playing and the concert scene. Both of these scenes were very particular in the fact that if lighting was shined where it was not supposed to be, it could have potentially shined in the audience’s face. Overall, I think the costume and lighting designer both did fantastic jobs adding elements to Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson that allowed the audience to get a better understanding of the play. All in all, I think Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson was a well-directed play that combined past history and today’s modern history into one play. The most prevailing message I got from Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson is that “history repeats itself” if no one is aware of certain events and does not speak up about the things that are occurring.…

    The old style picture might be difficult for some viewer’s because they are accustom to high definition and colored pictures like modern productions, but once you give it a chance, your opinion might change. I personally am acclimated to old style film and thought it added suspense and dramatic effect with still incorporating several good laughs. It is neither too long nor too short and are not any identifiable drawn out or pointless scenes. All scenes throughout the film have relevance to the design of the story and include details of importance. My favorite element of the film would be the music because the dramatic instrumental music fit the emotional tone of the film.…

    The both of them are portrayed as brother and sister in a popular film series called Divergent. That did not stop the directors from thinking they would be the perfect match for their parts in The Fault in Our Stars. “There are so many actors that have worked together in different movies, and these two have this chemistry that's undeniable. He was just so perfect for the role; we felt she was the voice, the everything, the essence of Hazel Grace. Those two together, it was too hard for us not to say, 'This is the perfect pairing for us,'” states Elizabeth Gabler about The Fault in Our Stars.…

    I really enjoyed watching Driving Miss Daisy because of its ability to remain entertaining throughout its entirety. I was also able to learn more about how powerful and important both set and light designs are. Without these two designs a play would not be that captivating to watch, but rather dull and uninteresting. It is fair to say that lightening makes a play more alive. It would be extremely challenging for an audience to watch a play without the use of light.…
