    I didn't like the book. The movie does nothing for me.
    Oh, the one directed by Scorcese with Vince Chase in it?

      It makes me happy that this went COMPLETELY over my head.

        Not a fan of Entourage, I take it?

          Quite. I watched a few minutes of it once. I realize that's no real basis for a decision, but there you have it...

              I don't know, I just recognized the text from the Great Gatsby. West Egg is where Mr. Fancy Pants lived. I've never seen any of the GG movies because I didn't like the book.

              "One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its Black Gates are guarded by more than just Orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep, and the Great Eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire and ash and dust, the very air you breathe is a poisonous fume." Boromir

                Feels like more of a summer movie to me, but it's slated to come out at Christmas.
                Looking forward to it. I like Baz Luhrman's style and I remember enjoying the book (I'll have to give it a re-read).

                  Moulin Rouge had wonderful pacing and style. From his imdb it looks like Luhrman has done some incredible work.

                  I think of Gatsby's pacing as much more languid (all those long, meandering sentences and the whole structure of the plot as a slow fall like the opening credits for Mad Men), but it will be really interesting to see it done differently. Great works can support multiple interpretations.

                  And this will finally get Mia Farrow out of my head. Worst. Daisy. Ever.

                          Intrigued as well, no milkshake required.

                              It's a new version of The Great Gatsby directed by Baz Luhrmann with Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan

                              Here's the link to the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7Don...layer_embedded

                                Since The Great Gatsby book actually pissed me off because it was so horrible, I think I'll pass on the movie.
                                Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.
