Baz Luhrmann makes The Great Gatsby come alive! The visuals, the costumes, the sets, and the music all bring one back to the Roaring Twenties. The cast is excellent although some are overlooked for reasons I cannot pretend to know why.

I really liked this movie a lot. It was hard to get used to at first, no doubt, but once I got past a few of the crazy scenes, I really gravitated towards the story, how it was told and Jay Gatsby's character. DiCaprio is outstanding in this movie despite what you may have heard. The cast is actually pretty good, even Maguire is acceptable as the Dorky narrator. Highly recommended if you like visual dramas with good music.

No Love, Luhrmann.

The Great Gatsby is in my eyes the perfect example of style over substance.
While it is easily Baz Luhrmann's best film, he not only creates a an environment in which reality is scarce, but a 3D Hollywood-fest, that basically screams: I'm Pretty! through its excessive over-the-top acting and surprising Jay-Z music.

Luckily, one of the better points of the film is Leo. He's my favorite actor, so there's no wonder he would light up the dark, but he came off more Oscar-willing than Oscar-worthy. Substitute 'SHUT UP SHUT UP' with 'GIVE ME AN OSCAR' and you'll see why.
Joel Edgerton however steals the show. This is a greedy, malicious ba*tard who really knows how to manipulate people. Very different from his family-man persona in Warrior. If anyone deserves Best Supporting Actor, then it'...

The Great Gatsby

Brace Yourselves, this review is LONG

World literature also survives, without the help of Hollywood, decades. Effortlessly .
The ambition of the dream factory so is quite an artistic and commercial risk . So there are about F. Scott Fitzgerald's modern classic novel " The Great Gatsby " no completely satisfactory film version , last failed director Jack Clayton and his leading actor Robert Redford in 1974 at the tricky task. Also Baz Luhrmann adaptation struck in the run against a certain skepticism .
Roman purists feared the Australian would destroy Fitzgeralds' finely honed prose in favor of exuberant visual stimuli.
And actually plays Luhrmann its strengths , but not only that what he is. " The Great Gatsby " conjures with his social drama on the big screen, is simply breathtak...

A Disappointment

The Great Gatsby is one of my favorite books, so when I heard that they were making a new film version of it, I got excited. The trailer looked great, the cast looked great, save for Tobey Maguire (not that he's a bad actor, he just wasn't how I pictured Nick).
Anyways, when I saw the movie in theaters a little while ago, I was extremely disappointed. Besides the beautiful sets, the soundtrack, and Leonardo DiCaprio, this movie was terrible, even considering how closely the writers managed to stay true to the novel.
Every time most of the characters spoke I sort of cringed and I laughed at the parts that I'm sure weren't supposed to be funny. Strangely enough it was almost...too similar to the novel. The dialogue sounded odd coming out of their mouths.
Well, that's my input. Maybe o...
