This past Sunday my roommate and I went to see The Great Gatsby. We had been talking about this movie ever since it was announced. I read the book and saw an earlier movie version in my high school literature class. It is one of my favorite books. I really love period pieces, like Mad Men on t.v. and several H.G. Wells books. The thought of revisiting the roaring twenties really excites me. That’s why I was so excited to hear that they were making a new movie. When I heard that Leonardo DiCaprio was attached to play Gatsby and Tobey Maguire was going to play Nick Carraway I thought that these were good choices for their respective characters. Then I heard that it was going to be shot in 3-D and I became hesitant, not that that affects the quality of the movie, but sometimes 3-D can be a detriment to the look it. I’ve had a few days to gather my thoughts on the movie and now I will review it right here for the site. Just know that this is a discussion of specific scenes from the movie.

As you may have heard Disney bought Lucasfilm for $4.05 Billion. This includes all of their properties including Industrial Light, and Magic (ILM), Skywalker Sound, and Lucasarts. This gives them access to some of the top tech in the movie industry. With the long standing collaboration Disney and Lucasfilm have had it is no surprise to me that Disney would take over. Of course it is a shock that George Lucas would sell his company after having a hand in anything to do with Star Wars.
