I can’t decide how I feel about the upcoming movie version of The Great Gatsby, you guys. On the one hand, I really liked the book (which is super original of me because…so did everyone else), and I was even excited for the movie, but I’ve been hearing that it won’t be so great. First of all, the second trailer plays like a scene from The Fast And The Gatsby: Tokyo Drift. All the close-ups on speeding cars, which you know in 1922 were going like…maybe twenty miles per hour. How thrilling for a modern-day audience! Also it’s been pointed out that the release date was specifically moved from Christmas of 2012, right in the thick of Oscar-season, to Summer 2013, right in the thick of anonymity. That can’t bode well. I’m predicting that Leonard DiCaprio will get an Oscar-nomination anyway, because he doesn’t have one of those naked golden statues yet, and sooner or later the Academy is just gonna throw him a gimme.
