A Quick Romeo and Juliet Review

A Quick Romeo and Juliet Review

A lot of people groan at the mention of Romeo and Juliet. It is one of the top things to read in our English classes and one of the many plays William Shakespeare is most known for. We watch the different movies versions and we discuss the different aspects of the plays.

“Is there such a thing as love at first sight?” being a favorite topic of discussion. We also discuss the use of language. I don’t know about your teachers, but one of mine had us memorize some lines to present to the class. Believe it or not, that is actually quite easy because of how Shakespeare writes. Which is one reason as to why I love this play.

I love this play for its language use. Below are some of my favorite lines in the play:

Romeo and Juliet


I personally, had gotten tired of the story because of constant repetition. But it wasn’t until I heard the Nostalgia Critic talk about Romeo and Juliet that I began to appreciate the story a little more. I embedded his video below. Hopefully, you will be just as enlightened as I was.

A Quick Bridge To Terabithia Review

In this post, I shall touch upon the book Bridge to Terabithia.

It is not part of the reading list, but I value this book anyway. Who says you can’t read for fun? In fact, I encourage it!

I value this book because it does nothing but inspire the imaginations of others. It did for me. I am a HUGE fan of this book and also the movie. It is important that we keep an open mind at all times and not give in to the dullness and the sadness we find in the world. That is why I love this book and the movie; it shows us that no matter how sad the world is, you can free yourself if you just keep an open mind, use your imagination, and value different points of views.

Below is a video from someone who calls himself the Nostalgia Critic. He remembers things so you don’t have to. I put his video here to for the entertainment value and so you can see someone else’s perspective.
