The Not-so-Great Gatsby

It's not often that I start to watch a movie and don't finish it, but my boredom was too great to surpass and I quit The Great Gatsby around the 2 hour mark. Being visually stunning isn't enough to carry a movie that drags on and on and on. I swear that they took every single word that Fitzgerald wrote and put it into the script, and then doubled it. Normally my complaints are about underwritten movies, but the opposite end of the spectrum is absolutely possible as well. 

At least the costume design was fantastic, so as long as I can keep that imagery floating around in my subconscious it wasn't a total waste of time!

Just please don't ever utter the phrase "Old Sport" in my presence...
