Oh snap Angel. I couldnt even figure it out and I've read Romeo and Juliet. I'm not a big Shakespeare fan but I did adore Julius Caesar
"Beware the Ides of March" (or something like that lol)
Macbeth was pretty cool too! and Hamlet! But never liked Romeo and Juliet :oops:

Not into star-crossed lovers, huh?

Not really lol. I'll take Julius Caesar any day.
I saw the old version and the Baz Luhrmann (can't spell his last name) version and I liked them both. They were pretty great.

I'll take Julius Caesar any day.

He met an untimely end. I'd say that he was star-crossed, too, in a way! :-(

I only saw The Patriot about three months ago >_<
My mother's partner likes films like that, and he wanted to watch one. I looked at the cast and realised Jason was in it, so I'm there, put it on, put it on!!

His character was an evil git, but he was so very good at it... add into the fact that he's very good looking... let's jus say I didn't care that he was such a bastard.

Bad guys are often the better characters anyway ^_^

Will have to watch it again. As long as I can fast forward through the Mel Gibson parts.

LOL! I actually don't fast forward anything because I do like the movie...but I don't like Mel Gibson! Ugh! I really should fast forward :cool:
We all know that Jason was the only memorable thing about that movie. He was the one that made a lasting impression on everyone.

*Looks confused* I thought that was the whole point of anything with Jason in it? Or anything with a decent actor. Its how I choose my 10pm friday movie. Richard Gere...no...Michael Gambon...please don't....Mel Gibson...do you want an answer? Orlando Bloom...is that the best you can do?
Finally something nice will appear: Jason Isaacs, Johnny Depp, Alan Rickman, Sir Antony Hopkins, Christephor Lee, Richard Armitage, Toby Stevens, Mark Harmon...

Especially the scene where he's shaving (he was shaving right? I can't really remember, I just remember he had his hair down >_<)
