The Great Gatsby.

How was that? I never did see it. I liked the Book and the old movie, but the rap music scared me away. It is set in the jazz age for Pete's sake not a thug ghetto :P

Last time I checked, jazz came from and thrived in the 'thug ghetto'.

It was great. I cringed a bit when I first heard the soundtrack, but I could live with it. It's not that noticeable after a while.

I've never read the book, so I can't compare it with that.

I just saw this as well, only I was with my brother-in-law instead of my wife, so I had no such relief.  It was 'meh'.  The movie was like a cross between Outbreak/Contagion and 28 Days.  I wouldn't say it was bad, or not worth watching once, but even the recent RomCom zombie movie Warm Bodies was more entertaining to me.  No zombie flick beats Shaun of the Dead, though.

How was this?

Personally, I thought it was fantastic.  But I can definitely see why critics are so divided on it.  There's a dizzying array of intertwining story lines spanning several centuries, one of which is in the (unsubtitled) language of a post-apocalyptic patois, and the running time approaches three hours.  It's demanding and frequently mystifying.  Cinematically, however, it's in league of its own.  It's certainly one of the most impressive and beautiful CGI extravaganzas ever produced (it's a real treat having CGI in the hands of genuine artists like Tom Twyker and the Wachowskis, as opposed to hacks like Zach Snyder and Michael Bay).  The editing that weaves the story lines together is innovative; you would think that rapid-fire cuts between the sequences would only heighten the confusion, but somehow it doesn't.  It's almost symphonic how they all flow together.  I haven't been able to get it out of my head for the past two days.  It will require a second and possibly third viewing, and I'm even curious to read the book.

It isn't, however, Tom Twyker's masterwork.  That remains Perfume.  But the Wachowskis, for their part, have now outdone The Matrix.  IMO.

Sounds like it's definitely worth a watch.

Actually that's quite true, but it still doesn't justify using hip hop music in the movie version of the quintessential 1920s novel.

Hmmm... I have a free redbox movie code.  Might rent that one, looks good.
