The Book is Still Better

The only aspect of the movie I enjoyed was DiCaprio's depiction of Gatsby. Otherwise, the movie stays true to the story, but it didn't quite meet my expectations or my imagination of the novel. Most people enjoyed the Jay-Z soundtrack used during the party scenes, as they felt it helps the audience relate to those scenarios. I felt it took away from the feel and authenticity of the era the film was portraying.

Visually Delicious

Luscious visuals, engaging story line, depth of connection to each scene, each person despite not seeing it in 3D. Music was a bit surprising. Better watching the movie than listening beforehand. Definitely a good ride.

A little over hyped.

There just wansn't a lot of passion or plot that kept you drawn in. It was stunning to see but I did keep wondering when it was going to be over and if there was a twist at the end to make it all worth it.

Disappointed

I have seen all the previous film versions of the book and I was disappointed after seeing the trailers on TV. I think Leonardo DeCaprio was miscast. Although he is incredibly handsome, I never felt the character with him. I wasn't thrilled with the music either. The costumes were fabulous as was the art direction. The dialogue was of course fantastic.

Haunted by this story since I first read it in a Lit class. The film gave us the roaring 20's without feeling dated. Leo conveyed Gatsby's goodness, pain, vulnerability & love beautifully.
