High School Musical (2006)
A decent movie - great music too!
High School Musical is the story of how Troy Bolton and Gabriella Montez, two polar opposites, meet and become fast friends. Troy, the basketball playmaker, and Gabriella, a genius, are selected for karaoke and discover their passion for music. Soon they have the entire school breaking through clique barriers such as jocks, brainacs, skaters, and others. If you ask me, it's a decent movie. For a kid or a teenager, it's a must-see. The acting is pretty good, and the singing's not too bad either. The plot's not the greatest, but the songs are quite catchy, particularly Getcha Head in the Game, We're All in This Together, Stick to the Status Quo, and Breaking Free. So, it's a good movie. Don't take my word for it, though. Go see it yourself!
Romeo + Juliet (1996)
Don't see it
Romeo and Juliet... a great story, yes? Leonardo DiCaprio as Romeo? Um... no. Overall this is a particularly awful version. First of all, the Elizabethan dialect in the modern setting distracts horribly from the storyline. To see a man with pink hair in a half-open Hawaiian shirt saying thee and thou and other such nonsense is generally not pleasing to the modern audience. In addition, if you didn't know the story, you'd be extremely confused. There are some, well, not plot holes, but very confusing sections. In general the movie shows almost no traces of the fact that the Capulets and the Montagues hate each other. Furthermore several completely unnecessary (and rather disgusting) additions have been made, including a cross-dressing Mercutio. The "prince of cats" title attributed to Tybalt is atrociously overdone - he hisses at people. So if you want to see a great version of this classic story, see the 1968 version with Leonard Whiting and Olivia Hussey - a much more satisfying movie.
