"The Great Gatsby" - Mini movie review

I just stopped by to let you all know that I watched "The Great Gatsby" yesterday - and that it was a really great movie!
I'm sure you already heard about it, so I won't go into detail concerning the plot.
Of course I could go on and on about the storyline that didn't get boring for even a second, about the different characters, the good actors (Leonardo di Caprio!), the music and the emotions, but I'll spare you all that today ;)

First of all, the 3D was really well done and pleasing to the eye. I don't know about you, but I love 3D - if it's well done. And there were even some breathtaking effects that made me kind of dizzy (e.g. when the camera "fell down" from a high New York skyscraper unto the busy street - that was a real rollercoaster feeling, I tell you!).

Another thing that is probably worth mentioning is how much I had to cry in the end. And it wasn't only me - half of the cinema room was sniffling. Yes, this movie is really something for the heart. It's not overly tragic or melodramatic or cheesy, but it definitely pulls on one's heartstrings (except you're a cold ice block as my parents, who didn't shed even one tear! Unbelievable!).

Ah and last but not least, I couldn't help but hope that Nick Carraway and Jay Gatsby would become a couple. Well, of course I didn't really believe that they would, but a girl can dream, right? They would have been so cute together! And I mean, just look at how they smile at each other! That has to be more than friendship! Okay, I admit it, I'm a bit crazy. :D

So all in all: A definite recommendation for you! If you haven't already watched the movie, go ahead, you won't regret it. :)

I bet you're not the only person who had those thoughts about Nick and Jay. Maybe there's some slash out there?

I'm sure I can't be the only one ;)
When I came home from the cinema, I immediately checked Fanfiction.net, but there weren't any fanfictions at all :(

But now I checked again, and there are some - even a Nick x Jay oneshot! Finally! Thanks for reminding me, I'm totally going to read that right now :D

By the way, did you watch the movie already, too?

Mo, I haven't seen it. I just read a newspaper review (and your review of course).

I will go see it if our visitor wants to go see it, but otherwise I don't have time for movies. My sister basically forced me to go see Star Trek with her and her family. I was very tired, but I loved the movie so I'm glad she organized me into it.

You should totally go see it! I don't go to the movies very often either (I think the last time before Gatsby was Ice Age in July 2012), but this time, it was really worth it. I even consider going a second time! (If your visitor doesn't want to see it, can we go together? :D)
I've never seen a Star Trek movie but I'll probably watch it next week with a friend. Is it understandable for Star Trek newbies like me?
