Gatsby, you look great

I should start by saying I love Baz Luhrmann. I believe he can do no wrong.

I even loved Australia

Luhrmann’s next project is the retelling of The Great Gatsby (in 3D) staring Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Toby Maguire.

I have been concerned about this film for a number of reasons:
1. Why would you make it 3D? My eyes are not 3D compatable.
2. I don’t particularly care for Carey Mulligan. These issues stem from An Education which I did not enjoy and were then backed up after Never Let Me Go, which I also did not enjoy.
3. There has been too much hype surrounding it, which normally means this film will be garbage.
4. I do like Leo, but Robert Redford he is not.
5. 3D? What the frick?

But now the wait is over as the first preview is here and it looks.....

  1. This looks SWELL! So much movement and wonder and Leo's furrowed brow.

    When Carey Mulligan didn't talk much in Drive, that was okay. And I think she might have smiled once.

    I miss Sam Waterston.
