    the soundtrack is so bad in places I thought I had a Youtube page open by accident 7 years 11 months ago

    Unfortunate Synopsis

    Perhaps it should have been named "The Not Too Bad Gatsby." The movie is enjoyable if you just accept a few stylistic choices at face value:

    1 -- yes, they have used modern-times music modified to sound slightly more time-appropriate;
    2 -- yes, they do hammer the core symbolism a little too hard -- the green light, the optometrist sign, etc. and
    3 -- the text on the screen was unnecessary -- we get that Carroway is the narrator

    My positives are: they stayed fairly true to the book; the costume design is spectacular; Leo DiCaprio is always good (and this is no exception); and Tobey Maguire was surprisingly good.

    Didn't like the soundtrack choice. Love Watch The Throne, but hearing tracks from it just felt really out of place.

    All in all, I'd say it was The Okay Gatsby.
