I filmed a cameo that I hope made it into the film. I stuck my black dick in Leo and Toby's hole and made them push out the cum.

OMG! r2, the hilarity!

It will make all its money this weekend out of curiosity, and then it will be over.

That's respectable but it won't have legs.

Baz is now hollywood royalty. He is the new SPeilberg.

"Mixed reviews" is the polite way, overly polite in this instance, to say bad reviews. It gets a lousy 48% on Rotten Tomatoes, it's an outright critical failure.

Exactly. After theatre-goers see how shitty it is, they'll tell all of their friends not to waste their money. Expect a huge drop next weekend.

It's a pile of shit.

Steve Carrel can't get a break. His magician movie fared very poorly at the box office. I just can't see the appeal of the material. I know magicians in the '20s is probably a potent allegory for the time, but I can't believe it would still hold up to today's situations no matter how much star power, glitter and pop music you throw at it.

Of course, it's low brow Rap'n'Bling shit of generation obnoxious brain dead ghettocentric hipsters, they'd love it.

Bang bang!

Oh yeah, R4 ?

Well, they said we would flop big time on the first week end, and we didn't! I'm still a golden boy!

Screw you guys, I'm going home and I'm still the king of the world!

Saw it this weekend, loved it! Visually impressive and well-acted.

Me too R14. Liked it.

by Anonymousreply 1505/14/2013

Me three...

Enjoyed it a lot. I have a feeling some critics had made their decision in advance.

by Anonymousreply 1605/14/2013

So it turned out well? I'd like to see it.

by Anonymousreply 1705/14/2013

Well, R17, it depends on who you are asking.

Personnally, I thought it was well made and faithful to the spirit of the book.

But if you have issues with Luhrmann's style and exuberance, you might find it noisy, garish, vulgar, etc.

No denying the actors all do a good job, though.

Leonardo Dicaprio is the new Tom Cruise in that he will have a decades-long career of leading roles in blockbuster movies.

Should Baz get 'Catcher in the Rye'?

by Anonymousreply 2205/14/2013

R10, that might be about rat-face Steve Carrel and not the material he chooses. I can't stand him and know plenty of others who feel the same way.

The stars have certainly been promoting the film hard.

by Anonymousreply 2505/14/2013

There's so much wrong with the movie it isn't funny but, thanks to Fitzgerald, the story remains gripping and the ending generates feeling. Considering the crap Hollywood churns out regularly, that's saying something. But I'll stick with the Redford movie in the future.

I saw in on Monday in 3D and the film is fantastic, just the kind of film you'd expect from this director.

by Anonymousreply 2705/14/2013

What a piece of shit. I kept looking at my watch. Admittedly a pretty piece of fluff. I've talked to a lot of people who won't watch it because Leo is in it, similar to why people won't watch Tammy Cruise . He has the charisma of a wet dishrag.

I'm interested in what Luhrmann puts out, but i've always had a problem with the source material.

The book just wasn't that memorable to me, and the Redford/Farrow film was damn near narcoleptic.

And now, they have passed Iron Man 3 on Wednesday!

I know, only for a day. And not for the total gross. And IM3 was out for longer.

But still, it is not the failure some critics were a little too joyfully anticipating.

My favorite reviewer quote--- sorry, don't remember where I read it.

"Watching a Baz L. movie is like being trapped in an elevator with the entire Ringling Bros. circus."
