Watch the trailer here.

Ok, so I think this looks absolutely amazing, and I will be first in line to see it when it comes out. Thoughts?

So very frustrated.

I LOVE Leo. I enjoy some of Baz's work.

...I hate this book, I hate this story, and I don't know what to do with myself.

Only solution is to see it, because it looks awesome.

I think you are underestimating how much I loathe the source material.

I think you're underestimating how awesome DiCaprio is, and the whole '20s culture.

As one of the millions of girls who had Leo taped to my ceiling... I don't underestimate him. But the only book I hated more in high school?

...Catcher in the Rye. And it's a close race. Holden only annoyed me more than Daisy because he dissed Shakespeare.

Ok, so, Moulin Rouge is my movie. Like totally and completely. If this has any of the standout characteristics that I think make Moulin Rouge legendary, I can't wait to see it.

Moulin Rouge is a manic delight.

I also maintain that people who love good English-language works only hate Shakespeare because they haven't seen it done well. Which is a tragedy of it's own...

Then again, you're a Mets fan. :P

I don't understand the hate on The Great Gatsby. I read it this year in school, and really liked it. Except Tom. Tom was a total douche. Me and my friends had one wish for the ending: That Tom was killed.
Other than that, it was pretty good.

That's Jack White covering U2's "Love is Blindness" for the trailer. <3

I always think of Fitzgerald in the summer/fall. Deep winter feels like an odd season to me for the film, but there's all sorts of rules for awards and markets and the like determining that.
