I was very excited when I heard that Baz Luhrmann was re making The Great Gatsby. I love the book and the previous films, and I had seen some of the trailers for it and was just giddy! I have loved all Baz's previous films - I like the way he seems to not have to stick to a budget, but just produces a fabulous extravaganza. So with the Great Gatsby, I was surprised he stuck very much to the book - I didn't expect him to do this, the costumes were fantastic, the actors were great too. The settings were lush, but I wasn't too keen on the "computer generated images" so much. The only thing I felt let it down was the soundtrack. Now, the soundtrack is really really great and a really brave choice, but the music didn't feature as much in the film as I thought it would - which was a shame. My daughter said she wanted to feel as if she was at the party - and I know what she meant. And I didn't see the point in it being 3D either. I want to watch it again in 2D. My son thought it was hilarious when I tried to sum up my slight disappointment by saying it wasn't "Baz Luhrmanny enough".
