Be a social butterfly...

I’m so excited!!!  I know it’s predictable that I’ll be excited about a film set in the 20s, but I don’t care!!  I can’t wait to see The Great Gatsby!!!  To make things even better, I’ve been invited to an exclusive preview screening of what is tipped to be one of the best films of 2013…..so I get to tell you whether it was good, bad or just nice to look at, before anyone else!

I’m sure I’m not alone in thinking that the trailers look incredibly beautiful.  The sets and costumes are so stunning that it scarcely matters what the film is actually like, millions will adore it just for how it looks.   As a rule I don’t tend to enjoy remakes, ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’, but I absolutely love Baz Luhrmann movies and this one looks sure not to disappoint!

Only Luhrmann could produce such and extravagant take on the roaring twenties, marry it with an urban soundtrack and yet still hope to show the darkness that move stye story forward.

Alot of big budget, highly anticipated movies seem to lack credibility, but I think that Baz Luhrmann’s creativity will add an edge that is usually only found in smaller, indie films.  Whereas people tend to roll their eyes at the mention of ‘Titanic’, they aren’t quite so dismissive of ‘Moulin Rouge’.

Frankly I can’t wait.  I’m looking forward to a full on feast for the eyes and absolutely plan to dress for the occasion!!

Love Rachel

  • Good review Rachel. Interesting to look at and listen to, but the story falls apart somewhere around the middle. Then it just gets dull. Shame too, because the movie had all of the promising source material it needed.

      It isn’t a review dear, but thank you for your critique all the same

    • Ahhh I have just read your review and now realise that this is your critique of the movie and not me lol. I haven’t yet seen The Great Gatsby yet as I am based in the UK. By Wednesday I’ll know whether or not I agree with you ;/p

  • I saw the movie Saturday night! I just LOVED it!! I want to see it again! Baz does not disappoint. Everything is so beautiful, the costumes, jewelery and scenery. Plus I have been devouring the soundtrack like a crazy person!!

    • That’s what I WANT to hear!! I’m so excited, I’ll be so disappointed if it isn’t good c
