3 Reasons you should be watching Baz Luhrman's Romeo + Juliet

I was flipping through a list of movies added to Netflix streaming this month, when I came across the 1996 Baz Luhrmann version of Romeo + Juliet. Immediately it was high school all over again... and while I still felt the familiar feeling that Claire Danes is, was, and will be the fox that she is now; I couldn't help shaking the dreaded feeling that it was time to go to school, I had a report due in AP English, and my poor 486 was long in the tooth. Then I remembered that its 18 years later, I have a job, and my computer is fine... and so I breathed a sigh of relief.

If somehow you missed this gem when it was in the movie theatre, and you're wondering, "Why should I watch an 18 year old Leonardo DiCaprio film?", then let me try to help you.
