Movie Review: The Great Gatsby


A few weeks ago I went with Super Nice to go see The Great Gatsby and I totally neglected to share a little review.

My expectations were less than great for this flick.  It got pretty terrible reviews.  I really just went for the sake of going and to sit in a cold, dark theater shoveling my face full of popcorn.

Um...I don't know what those movie reviewers were talking about.

This movie ROCKED!

I thought the acting was really good.  The scenery was excellent.  The plot was fantastic.  The ending was tragic and kept me on my toes.  The costumes were phenomenal!  And the music was by far the best soundtrack I've ever heard.  Ever.

So in review...go see the movie and then download the soundtrack.  And wait for the costumes to {hopefully} influence a few {affordable} fashion lines next season!

Very rarely do I swoon over a movie.  The last time was after War Horse.  But I think The Great Gatsby was even better.

Have you seen The Great Gatsby yet?  What did you think?  Have you seen any other unexpectedly great movies lately?

I haven't seen the movie yet, but I really need to! I finally just saw Silver Linings Playbook. It was just as good as the hype!

I also have no idea who buys that curling thing. I saw the commercial and thought, what the heck?!

Finally, you're totally on trend with your Dollar Store spices! Melissa D from Food Network said thats where she buys hers as well! :)

I feel like I need to read the book first... so I guess it'll be a rental for me at some point. Plus Leonardo generally annoys me so I don't usually run to see his movies.

Oh BTW, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter was on TV the other day - totally made me laugh and think of you. I watched it... yeah NOT your thing, I'm guessing!

Speaking of movies... Best in Show was on too the other day. Forgot how hilarious that movie is... did you ever see it? You must if not. A must for every dog lover!
