Franco Zeffirelli, the Italian director and designer who reigned in theater, film and opera as the unrivaled master of grandeur, orchestrating the youthful 1968 movie version of “Romeo and Juliet” and transporting operagoers to Parisian rooftops and the pyramids of Egypt in productions widely regarded as classics, died June 15 at his home in Rome. He was 96.

His Hamlet (1990) was underrated just because Gibson was an action star. It's not the best movie version, but it was a lot better than its rep. I don't think I have anything of his in my collection to watch in his honor though there's a few I'd like.

I mean Gibson is still an actor, it's not like he was Schwarzenegger or something, his biggest hit just happen to be an action buddy comedy. That version of Hamlet simply had a smaller release in 1990, and actually got good reviews, but nobody seems to talk about it these days.

He's one of the better directors when it comes to Shakespeare adaptations. His version of The Taming of The Shrew with Taylor & Burton is an absolute delight.

Yeah, I haven't seen that since I was in high school (which is over 20 years now), but I would've watched that if I had it since Birton is one of my favorite actors.

He's good in it, I think he was even sober on the set. It's the last really good movie Taylor made too, the quality of her films went downhill fast after the second Oscar.

In fact, the more I talk about it, the more I probably wanna rewatch it. Brother Sun, Sister Moon is really good too.

Given his substance abuse problems, I'm amazed Wright stuck around as long as he did.

A true genius of the industry. Directly responsible for the production of the Mustang, the k car, and the minivan. And with a movie coming out about him (and Shelby) this summer. His impact on the automotive industry and keeping Ford a top contender can't be underestimated. R.I.P.

This one messed my wife and kid up. We watched the Jessie series on Netflix and hated when this kid didn't join the cast for the spin-off. He seemed like a really good kid and had a close relationship with Adam Sandler after appearing in a couple of his films.
