Interesting concept, not the best execution. If you can get past the slow start it's pretty entertaining. And has one of the longest 1v1 fist fights I've seen in a while.
Also, contains one of the most badass lines in movie history.
Great Gatsby: I didn't like the director's last two movies, hate Leonardo (almost as much as I hate Val Kilmer), and never read the book. I also had no interest in watching a love story about rich people who party a lot. Girlfriend wanted to see it. I didn't care for it. *shrugs* Impressive achievement...but not as a film I enjoyed...just the actual filmmaking. that's all I could really appreciate. Almost fell asleep a couple of times.
Does anyone else not get what made this a cult movie? I know all the good music and the famous McConaughey quote (one of the reasons I got it to watch) but other than that, it felt a bit boring... I expected a bit more, cult movies are generally either weird or good in a way people dont get, OR really really so bad they just become that sort of movie. This was none of those things.
