The soundtrack for the great gatdvy seems Meh. Yes?
the soundtrack has its moments. i think it’s decent there are a few tracks on there that made its way onto the movie that i LOL’d at - but i think it was okay. it wasn’t amazing but people just like to be haters, like can Baz Luhrman just live?
I’m wondering how many people actually remember or comprehend The Great Gatsby.
There’s been a lot of rants from people who say the book was overrated, and that the movie was shitty.
But I liked both. In fact I don’t think that there is a more perfect parallel in society than that of shit that went down in the early 20th century. Decadent, young people doing shitty irresponsible things with each other. Sounds about right, though.
I think that is what separates the people who actually read the book (more than once) and the people who read the cliffs notes in the 9th grade is the basic understanding of what the book was. The book is about two people so self involved with each other than their flaws become so irrelevant in consuming, and the thirst of co-dependence. It’s crazy how completely fucked up Gatsby and Daisy were - and in their flaws, only cared about themselves in the end. It’s not romantic like it first seems. It’s consuming. It’s everything bad about loving someone, and how far it goes when you’re mentally unstable and emotionally draining. It’s an inevitable heartbreak and no one learns from it.
But If you’re criticizing something you haven’t taken the time to refresh your memory on - your opinion is biased. And legit, don’t get me started on the things people are saying about the movie, but call Baz Luhrman’s Romeo+Juliet “the best movie ever” because he literally did the exact same thing in Gatsby.
Or did y’all hate Romeo+Juliet too, and pretended to understand every single line too?
i wish a boy would love me like gatsby loves daisy
believe i am the perfect girl but refuse 2 realize how shallow i am and become rich and try 2 win my affection and watch ur dream crumble to bits when i reject u for my husband
