Sometimes these 'alternate' posters are pretty cool.

This wasn't one of those times, sadly.

p.s. Blink is probably my favorite hour of television ever, and a large part of the reason is Carey Mulligan's performance as Sally Sparrow.

Here's a fun game.

Name the Baz Luhrmann film: Against a backdrop of lavish parties and shifting cultural mores set to an anachronistic soundtrack of contemporary pop, two star-crossed lovers find themselves involved in a romance they must hide from the world. Caught between love and circumstances, their forbidden love leads them to tragedy, and ultimately death in a visually-stunning and fast-paced cinematic free-for-all.

LegacyDL: The soundtrack by itself: Good
The way the soundtrack was used in the movie: *face palm*

Too much Del Rey and having black people driving in a car while playing "H to the Izzo" makes no sense.


I originally though using rap in TGG was a brilliant idea. here is a character who was criticized for his garish use of money that was rich but clearly had no sense of decorum. It aligned too well with rapper culture to not have rap in the movie. Unfortunately it was over used and didn't fit well.

All of these alternate, minimalist, faux-vintage posters look the same to me.  Let's take a cue from Baz Luhrmann and ridic those things up a bit!  You know what I mean, blue and orange color scheme, maybe floating heads above some battle or something, overwrought tagline... the works!  I'm at work or I'd do it myself


/ Uugh Baz Luhrmann
// Uugh Leo Dicaprio
/// Uugh unnecessary 3D

Might have been better with a 1920s era $100 bill?  Just sayin'.

Guess I don't get the joke then, I thought it was redesigned posters for a movie that takes place in 1925 or so...

I noticed that too and came to comment on it, but it did make me curious what a 100 dollar bill looked like in 1925...

The terrible thing about current music being used in historical settings is it makes the audience think decent music doesn't exist from that era. Music that would fit the setting and plot beautifully.

I guess lots of people think men didn't have penises until the "jimmy" was coined and  women were just sheets of cardboard until the words "biatch" and "ho" were invented. And it is hard to vibrate a  brain stem to mush with just a ukulele.

And no thumping bass on a Stroh violin. Besides, how the hell do you make it go "oontz oontz oontz".

Saw the movie yesterday because Iron man 3 was sold out. Was expecting shiat, but was actually decent and I enjoyed it. Somehow the music worked, could have been toned back a bit in some scenes. Leo is a good actor.

Yeah, I don't know, probably Great Gatsby is only the true answer to this.

Strictly Ballroom I think played pretty straight with the music and visuals (it's been a while since I've seen that)
Romeo + Juliet was a modern re-telling, so pop music made sense. The shakespear language what the thing that was kind of messed up, time-period wise in that movie.
Moulin Rouge was a flat-out musical...while the lyrics were modern pop, the music behind the lyrics were pretty much handled in an all-over-the-map musical style.  And well, musicals are all sorts of anacronistically messed-up anyway.
I think Australia was played as a pretty straight "epic" movie...however, I've never seen it, so I can't be sure.

//I'm sort of looking forward to to seeing Gatsby when I get a chance...while I know his stuff is not everyone's cup of tea, I tend to like Luhrmann's sense of mixing up styles and genres.

I expected to hate the movie but I left liking it very much. The music was a good idea if overdone. Overall it could have been better but it certainly wasn't bad. I wouldn't mind watching it again.

Oddly I really think it is a movie that needs to be seen on a big screen and in 3d. And I usually hate 3d.
