    Are there any Gatsby fans here? What do people think of the upcoming Baz Luhrmann adaptation?
    I'm rather apprehensive since I would never have thought that Baz Luhrmann and The Great Gatsby would go well together but I still hope I will be pleasantly surprised.

    Yes!

    I'm excited, but fairly apprehensive about DiCaprio as Gatsby and Tobey Maguire as Nick. A lot of other people have been complaining about Carey Mulligan having been chosen to play Daisy, but she's actually exactly how I pictured her, and I really rate her as an actress, too, so I'm pleased about that casting. I just cannot see DiCaprio as Gatsby, but I hope I'm wrong.

    I think DiCaprio will be a great Gatsby, but not so sure about Tobey Maguire as Nick. Someone like James McAvoy might have been a good shout.

    Yeah, James McAvoy is exactly who I was thinking for Nick! Maguire looks a little too boyish, I think.

    They have so much to pull off beyond the casting, so we'll have to see. I'm really excited to see it, though. Shame it doesn't come out til December

    I also think DiCaprio would be great, as would Mulligan but I always imagined Nick as a Casey Affleck kinda guy

    Watched Step Up 1, 2 and 3. I now want to become a breakdancer. :pierre:

    Wrath of the Titans was unsurprisingly ****. **** dialogue and plot. I'm curious about the last film in the trilogy (Last of the Titans?) given the events of this film. Though I can see the villain/monster of the third one coming from a mile away even though there's not been a single mention of him. It's going to be Typhon. There's a pattern with the main villain/monster getting bigger and bigger: Clash - Kraken and Wrath - Kronos. Typhon is the next step up (no pun intended).

    Why have I only just found this thread? :nothing:

    Hey guys! I'm a student at Warwick who currently works at the Student Cinema as a steward, on the publicity and marketing teams, and also training to become a qualified 35mm film projectionist. To say my uni life revolves around films would be a slight understatement.

    Anyway, I look forward to participating in chat in your society!

    It's very rare that DiCaprio is put in a position to be the flashier scene-stealing character, he's usually the straight man that binds everything together (the Nick Carraway role). It will be interesting to see if he can pull it off. I'd have gone for someone like Bale, Pitt or Depp, with Joseph Gordon Levitt as Nick.

    And I've just finished watching the first season of Homeland. It's amazing, probably one of the best TV seasons in recent years. I'd recommend it to anyone with an interest in spy/political thrillers.

    The trilogy is already finished, dude.

    Re-watched Immortals last night... I would give my first-born for a night with Henry Cavill. It has to be against the law to be that ****ing beautiful and have a body as amazing as his :moon:

    Because when I see a harrowing black-and-white biopic about a man's emotional and physical decline my immediate thought is also 'FRANCHISE'. What exactly are they going to do? Have him join the Justice League?

    I think Baz Luhrmann is an indulgent hack and I wouldn't trust him with a sequel to The Wiggles Movie, let alone one of the formative works of contemporary literature. You can count on him for gorgeous sets, but not much else.
