Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose: To 3D or not to 3D?
Some of my USF friends want to see The Great Gatsby this weekend and I know a few of them aren’t fond of 3D, but I’m not sure if I want to see it without the 3D because while I am looking forward to it I’m most likely not going to see this film twice in theaters. My reasoning to them was “What’s…
I saw it in 3D because of the time I wanted to go. I would have seen it 2D otherwise. I’m not a fan of 3D however I must say, it was well done and I didn’t leave with a headache.

The Great Gatsby Review
I have to first start off with an apology. I sincerely apologize for my previous prediction on the film. I found ‘The Great Gatsby’ to be a wonderful piece of art. I say this mainly because of the casting. Don’t get me wrong, Baz did a decently good job with the overall direction of the film. However, the casting and acting of each character was spot on. There where certain aspects I didn’t like, but those as aspects that fall under Baz, and no one else. I really do believe, despite all the negative reviews, that people should check out ‘The Great Gatsby’. The picture screams “a good bit of fun” between Leo, Edgerton, McGuire, and Mulligan. Overall, Gatsby’s a fun filled roller coaster with just the right amount of turns and loops that won’t leave you puking when you step out.

AMERICAN HUSTLE: What to expect from DOR
At first, I thought I was dreaming. Then I realized movies are just getting to be so ridiculous with casting (in a good way). David O Russell, director of Silver Linings Playbook, is set to make a new film called American Hustle. Let me take a second to name drop like a mother fucker. Here’s a taste by last name; Bale, Cooper, De Niro, Lawrence, Adams, Renner, and Pena, and Louie CK. No, I’m not making this up, this is real. Question is, will the screen blow up within the first five minutes of runtime. The story makes it even more worth while, “1970s-set true story of a con artist and his partner I’m crime, who were forced to work with a federal agent to turn the tables on other cons, mobsters, and politicians - namely, the volatile mayor of impoverished Camden, New Jersey,” (IMDb). You got to be kidding, if David O Russell gets any cooler he might as well run for presidency along with NWR (Nicolas Winding Refn). I know it’s early but based on DOR’s previous films, I’m sure we won’t be disappointed and I’m going to say best picture nominations. Can’t wait for this one.

Time To Talk “Gatsby”
“Gatsby, what Gatsby?” is a question that will soon be answered. Baz Luhrmann’s new film The Great Gatsby is set to release this summer, as it was announced several months ago. The film staring DiCaprio, Mulligan, Edgerton, and Maguire is going to be a thrill to watch. This much talent all being orchestrated by Luhrmann seems to scream success, right? The third trailer was revealed a few weeks ago and by having three trailers I’m worried that we’ve seen to much. Obviously, I’m not talking about the plot line because we all know how it ends, I’m more so talking about the acting, direction, and over all feel of the picture. I think this film will be something remarkable to watch, however don’t count it for any Oscar nominations. I will state it now, Luhrmann’s Gatbsy will be a summer blockbuster talked about maybe until the DVD release, then soon after forgotten. Think I’m wrong? Open discussion.

Place Beyond the Pines Review
After seeing The Place Beyond the Pines for the second time, in two nights, I’ve come to realize that it is one of the best films not only this year but perhaps the past fifteen. Derek Cianfrance makes movies that every director tries to achieve, emotion, feeling, relation. Gosling and Cooper give excellent performances as expected. Going back to the film as a whole, it is an amazing piece of art that in later years will be labeled as a “classic”. I give The Place Beyond the Pines an “A” and would like to thank Derek Cianfrance and all the cast and crew for rediscovering what a film is supposed to do to a viewer, supposed to feel, and finally, understand.
