I'm unsure of how I feel about the new Great Gatsby movie. I dislike when Hollywood destroys my favourite books, and this adaptation just looks ridiculous. Then again, if I wanted to watch a good version, I could just watch Robert Redford. Could just a normal new adaptation really compete with that? Do they have to make it ridiculous and 3-d to make any sort of mark in cinema? Or is making it flashy the only way you can get kids into something based on decent literature?
I'm a snob, no need to tell me, I hear it all the time. I'll probably still see the movie when it comes out, if only because it is The Great Gatsby.
