2014 Oscars Challenge: [26] The Great Gatsby – Two Nominations

Catherine Martin The costumes in “The Great Gatsby”, let alone any Baz Luhrmann film, are an integral part of the experience. Especially in “Gatsby”, the costumes jump off the pages of a F. Scott Fitzgerald’s masterpiece novel, and Luhrmann along with costume designer Catherine Martin, capture this perfectly. Whether it be the suave way that they dress their Gatsby, Leonardo DiCaprio, or the amazing … Read More 2014 Oscars Challenge: [26] The Great Gatsby – Two Nominations

FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION: SEVENTY-FIVE ORIGINAL SONGS And we’re down to seventy-five Original Songs, meaning songs that have music and lyrics written specifically for the film they are contained in and apparently, an original song that starts the credits (but none after, which is too bad for the original songs following Coldplay in the credits of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”). The odds-on favorite to … Read More Oscars Shortlist: 75 Original Songs Shortlisted for 86th Academy Awards

Theatrical Releases: The Great Gatsby

Baz Luhrmann’s take on the great American novel “The Great Gatsby” is not only visually enthralling, but delivers some of the best performances so far this year, including an impossible-to-beat presence of Leonardo DiCaprio.

The love continued in “Brothers”, “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” and the subtle science fiction Indie, “Never Let Me Go”, in which she … Read More Crush: Carey Mulligan in “The Great Gatsby”
