Review: Moulin Rouge and Romeo & Juliet Blu-Ray

My husband loves watching movies, and every now and again I get to choose the movie.LOL Of course, he goes for zombies and I go for romance, so there is a lot of compromise going on at my house. With the release of two of my favorites, Moulin Rouge! and Romeo + Juliet , on Blu-Ray, romance was in the air.

20th Century Fox was nice enough to send me a copy of each of these releases on Blu-Ray.  I settled in with some popcorn to watch these movies and their extras.  It was a long and fun movie night for me, with lots of tears.  I forgot how much I loved these movies and it had been forever since I had seen Romeo and Juliet!   I have been a Claire Danes fan, since “My So-Called Life” and was introduced to Ewan MacGregor in Moulin Rouge!. 

Here are the extras that are included on these discs:
