The Great Gatsby

9 May

I’m seeing The Great Gatsby this weekend along with everyone else in the world.

People have been warning me for some time now.  “The reviews are mixed.”  “It could go either way.” “I guess you’ll have to see.”

It could go either way? I GUESS I’LL HAVE TO SEE? No, no.  I don’t have to see.  What are you talking about?  Do you know me at all?

If you want to get into this, let’s get into this.

Here are 7 reasons why I will love The Great Gatsby (almost) no matter what:

1. I am one of 10 people in the world who saw Australia and truly, deeply loved it.

2. When I watch Moulin Rouge I don’t think “over-the-top” I think, “What a tastefully-understated gem of a movie. Baz could have even amped it up a notch.”

3. I refuse to entertain the idea that Jay-Z is overrated.  Heatrbreaker.  Mariah Carey.  End of discussion.

4. Carey Mulligan’s haircut!  Every day I regret not including it in this article.


5. Florence.  Lana.  Jack.   If this soundtrack doesn’t win a Grammy, expect to see me protesting outside The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences.  Wherever that is.

6. “I wish I had done everything on earth with you.”

7. Leo.  The only man on earth who can pull off a swan picture.


If you dislike perfect pixie haircuts and over-the-top directing and Leonardo Dicaprio (gasp!) well…
