Interesting movie, but Hip Hop soundtrack in the 1920s? Really?

The actors worked really hard to portray the Aristocratic lifestyle back in the 1920s. Leo and Tobey did a nice job with their acting performances, but what really killed the movie was the poor music selection. Who came up with the stupid idea to incorporate Jay Z hip hop music? The music took away the movie's identity. Please don't me wrong, I love hip hop, but it wasn't needed for the movie.

Leonardo DiCaprio deserves best actor for his portrayal of Jay Gatsby, Baz Luhrmann for best director, and Tobey Maguire for best supporting actor in this breathtaking film that will tug at your heart and haunt you afterward. Immersing yourself in The Great Gatsby will bring back your first memories of getting involved with the characters when you read this classic back (or currently) in high school. The rich details are pleasing to the eye; even though I saw this only 12 hours ago, I am ready to see it again just to take in more of the details and the director's artistic view of the novel.

Don't expect a strictly adhered to 'period piece', though the Art Deco era was *very* well done. Expect a highly stylized visual spectacle, a hip-hop soundtrack, which I enjoyed, and some great storytelling and acting. The writing kept me engaged, as did the actors. I couldn't stop 'studying' Leo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire. The costuming was exquisitely done - everyone looked like a fashion mode. Just go see it - you won't be disappointed.

I went to see the Great gatsby prepared to be disappointed as I still remember Robert Redford as Jay and Mia Farrow as Daisy. I mustsay I was pleasently surprised. I thoroughly enjoyed this version of a great film. The acting was outstanding and the soundtrack was exceptional.

The movie was Ok but I did not think that rap music was an appropriate way to depict movie about the 1920's. Unless you are determined to see it soon, wait for the DVD,
