So yeah, want to know more of his work. Only really seen Romeo + Juliet. He has a lot of stuff, and I was wondering which isn't really that important? Sort of like how Terminator 1 and 2 are the only ones worth watching out of that series.

I recommend:
  • Ten Things I Hate About You
  • Forbidden Planet
  • Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead
  • Ran
  • West Side Story
  • Gnomeo and Juliet

Semi-related, I also recommend Hamlet 2

Is it Romeo + Juliet (Baz Luhrmann) you saw or some other version?

As spam bots go, it's a pretty adept one. Look at its previous topics.

It's really easy. The post is generic and the sig has a link.

That said,
Ran
is a wonderful adaptation of King Lear :) Also, Prospero's Books, if you likes the artsy stuff.

As always,

Even though it's a spam bot, it still had a good question  :o

The difference between procedurally generated content and hand crafted content in action? :P
