I'll give THE GREAT GATSBY a shot, so to speak, but I'm not particularly pumped for it. The book never held any lasting interest for me and I have zero need to see Leonardo DiCaprio in this sort of role (see DJANGO UNCHAINED for the exact opposite sentiment). But it exists now, and Baz Luhrmann's visual stamp and attention to detail cannot be denied.

In the most curious case of counter-programming I've ever witnessed, you can catch DiCaprio in both THE GREAT GATSBY and DJANGO UNCHAINED in a little over six months from now on December 25th.

still not feeling it

the preview for this movie looks like they decides to chuck the entire tone of the book out... in a book where the tone is almost the plot itself.

Focus is so off...

I completely expected the romance to much bigger in the film version, but that seems to be what the story is almost exclusively about: The mystery of Gatsby and his lost love, Daisy. But the book is about the glossiness of the 20s and how it was so vain, which ultimately lead to its decline. Now that may very well be the focus of the film, but the trailer sure didn't make it seem that way...

I am liking the prestigious look of this film. I love Tobey Maguire in Roles other than Spiderman. For example, The good German was a good role for him, too bad he died early on.
