The Greatest Gatsby!

By MedRed
This was my most anticipated movie of the year. After seeing the critics' ratings for this movie, I became disheartened. I'm happy to say that The Great Gatsby lived up to my initial...

Superb!

By Festival4
ABSOLUTELY true to the spirit of Fitzgerald's novel. Baz Luhrmann's magnificent film provides exactly what viewers want from a movie adaptation of a classic work--the visuals, the emotions, the key...

Beautifully haunting, absolutely devastating, and wonderfully loyal to the text

Loved it!

First this was a toss up for me because Iron Man 3 was out, but Gatsby won out. I always love Leo and Toby as actors and seeing them both on the screen was great for me. I thought they both did a...

Better than I thought

I re-read the book before I went to see it last night and noticed that much of the dialogue was taken directly from the book word by word, as well as many scenes. I think the actors fit perfectly with...

Gatsby

The movie did make me understand the story better than the original film. I did have empathy for Gatsby, but found the over indulgence of the rich sickening. I thought Daisy was beautiful, but...

Ok

By hansolosmom
While the movie stayed pretty true to the book with some exceptions, the cgi was very distracting and made it hard to watch. Also the anachronism of todays music in the scenes didn't work well IMO. ...
