The Feud to Blame
By: Chris McKinzy Jr. (Duke)
The Death of Love
Romeo and Juliet may be your typical love birds in the story. But because of the way their families act, the feud is to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. Liking what they see and feel, Juliet finds out that their families are different and that Romeo is a Montague and an enemy. So Juliet tells nurse," Prodigious birth of love it is to me, that I must love a loathed enemy"( Act I, Scene V). However, to explain in more detail what that means is: Romeo and Juliet killed themselves because of the way their family acted and that led to serious deaths. But next leading up to what I'm going to say is Romeo and Juliet didn't care they had different last names and that they're enemies. They will do anything to be together no matter what. So now it's if they find Romeo anywhere near Juliet and the Capulet's, he will die. But knowing Romeo thinking in his mind he doesn't care if they find him. He would die to be with Juliet and that's literally. But Romeo tells Juliet," And but thou love me, let them find me here: My life were better ended by their hate, Than death prorogued, wanting of thy love"(Act II, Scene II).Knowing that this will happen, if you look and see the feud between the families made it difficult to do things. So much hate, violence, and jealousy.
The Death of The Titanic
Because Jack was poor and not wealthy like rose, it was the parents fault for not letting them see each other. The Titanic , was an extremely close movie and similar to Romeo and Juliet. How this is or started was, just like Romeo and Juliet. Jack saw Rose and was determined to get her, just like Romeo. So them trying to see each other they really couldn't. But however, when they did see each other they had very little time and didn't know what they would get into. First when the parents saw Jack he had to lie about being wealthy like: dressing in fancy clothes and talking like how rich people would. But when they saw his true self they told Rose that you may not see this man anymore or he will be arrested. Knowing Rose and Jack they were not going to stop until they could see each other and fall in love just like Romeo and Juliet. So both movies show that its the families fault that they can not see each other. As a result at the end Jack died who was played as Leonardo DI'Caprio. Knowing he wasn't going to come back Rose made it out alive played as Kate Winslet. In this game loved can get you killed.
The Death of West Side Story
In the Novel or movie West Side Story it is very similar to Romeo and Juliet. Two different people fall in love from two different family and gangs. How this is similar is because both die at the end. Another thing is like what made them do this is because of their family and friends. Two different gangs that hated each other and families was heartbreaking. Both families fight a ll the time and gangs. Another thing how they're similar is it has a balcony scene too. Also Maria and Tony get married the two characters in the movie. One night when the two gangs were fighting Tony accidentally killed the other gang member just like Romeo and Tybalt. Both of these loved ones just wanted to be together and both died at the end because of their families are different and the gangs. Just like how Romeo and Juliet fell in love when they first saw each other that was the same for Maria and Tony. Their love go them killed because of their name and who their families were. This movie is very similar to Romeo and Juliet in many ways.
