Shakespeare's famous play is updated to the hip modern suburb of Verona still retaining its original dialogue. (120 mins.)
Director: Baz Luhrmann
“ I am fairly certain you can't have a list like this and not mention this movie. Leo and Claire brought the heat with steam to spare. The obvious scene would be when they see each other through the aquarium or the pool. But I choose leo's death scene. He rocked it. I cry like a baby every time. Screw them haters. Skills. He's got them. ” - yoliemonster

Director: Gurinder Chadha
“ The Sex God and Georgia. Best scene is in the pool when he goes under water to see her super orange legs. The music, the sweetness, the young burgeoning love; Gurinder Chadha you rock. One point for casting a younger and fairly unknown (at the time) Aaron Johnson and Two points for making a movie out of one of my favorite book series from well... when I was quite a bit younger. ” - yoliemonster

A young governess falls in love with her brooding and complex master. However, his dark past may destroy their relationship forever. (230 mins.)
“ So far I would say that THIS Jane and Rochester have the most heat and this is the best version of all of the ones I have seen. Which is a few to say the least. Michael Fassbender gives the new one a great Rochester but Mia Wasikowska lacks...well any kind of heat at all. Her performance is as cold as it gets. Considering passion is THE central theme. But back to this mini-series. A cute scene is when rochester gives Jane the money and asks for it back in fear she won't return soon enough if given too much. ” - yoliemonster

Director: Pat O'Connor
“ Benny and Jack. First off Chris O'Donnell is beyond adorable. Those blue eyes are both kind and mischievous. And Minnie's ernest portrayal of Benny is great (if only she had been written more like her character in the book). They have that sweet budding romance down to a T. A great scene is when they are telling truths about themselves. The one in the picture that accompanies this. ” - yoliemonster
