Leonardo DiCaprio: Jay Gatsby is A Sharp Dressed Man


I saw Leo DiCaprio. I mean The Great Gatsby! HaHaHa Thank God I knew the storyline you guys, because my entire focus was on Leo! I'll give you a review in a minute, but can I discuss him for a second? Start playing ZZ Top's "Sharped Dressed Man"! Oh yesss! That is his theme song! Leo was one hunk of gorgeousness in this movie! Did you know Brooks Brothers outfitted him for this movie? They even have a Great Gatsby Men's Collection. The Brooks Brothers suits, ties, cufflinks, shoes, and the watches he wore made me drool! The ivory suit, he wore for tea, made me forget about the cakes & macarons surrounding him. Now that says a lot! HaHa Then he lays back in a bed of colorful pillows wearing this gorgeous cream-colored sweater with linen pants. I tell ya, I should've seen this movie in 3D! HaHa He even looked good in a robe. Whoever cut his hair, did a hell of a job! His hair literally took shape based on his feelings and persona. Simply put, Leo out-shined the women in this movie! Ready to laugh? I was so enamored, I mistakenly dipped my fingers in the nacho cheese cup while watching the movie! HaHaHa


Spoiler Alert: A review? You want one? The movie was very good, but not great! It could've been magnificent! All of the actors and actresses were spectacular. They really got into character. The costumes, jewelry and makeup were gorgeous. No problem there. Let me tell you what the problem was! I've never seen it done before, but whoever edited the movie, jacked it up! It was so choppy, you could barely appreciate the storyline. Also anyone who read the book, knows they left out Daisy's daughter and Gatsby's father attending the funeral at the end (if I missed it looking at Leo, I stand corrected). Ewww, Leo even looked good in the casket! LOL

THE BEST part of the movie was the end! The ending should resonate in your heart & soul. Always remember, you cannot make anyone love you! If something doesn't work out, keep moving forward...don't look back (if it's meant, they'll catch up with you and make a point to be part of your life)! How YOU feel, doesn't mean someone else will feel the same way (nor can YOU force it)! For the most part, family will be there for you when no one else will! The people that party with you & say you're great today, may kick your ass tomorrow! Gatsby entertained MANY, and NONE even bothered to show up at his funeral when he died. Daisy, went on with her life and didn't even send one flower when he died (and he dedicated his ENTIRE life to her)! So sad! Did anybody see the movie? Please share your thoughts and insights. Have a great week everybody!

  1. Who could bear to look away from the screen when Leo's on there ;) Especially looking this good! Wowza, he is HANDSOME!
    Man, I feel like I'm the only one who hasn't seen this movie. I need to check it out after payday...

  2. I can't wait to watch this, even though it hasn't reviewed very well. I think the costumes and Leo and Carey Mulligan will more than make up flaws in the storyline!

  3. He is very sharply dressed! :) Would love to see this movie just for the fashions and costumes alone - it looks good from the shots you've shared :)

  18. I'd definitely like to see the movie for all the eye candy, but I can't say I like the story. I don't understand what is so great about the great gatsby... there is nothing redeeming in the end.

  22. OMGosh Kim, I a.d.o.r.e LEO..... I mean could he be any more fantastic. Great actor, very handsome, bit mysterious, a bit of a tormented soul. Haven't seen the movie yet, can't wait. Might have to go alone, as my hubby might think I am a bit mad swooning over Leo ha ha. Happy Monday lovely, great to be back,

  26. I really can't wait to see this movie as I have absolutely loved the book. Something just seems so wrong to check it out in 3D but I would definitely want to admire Leo and all his suits that way. Maybe I'll go and see both ''versions'', haha!

  28. I've read the book and I'm actually really happy that I didn't see the movie. I didn't hear good things. But I do love the fashion from the movie. Jay Gatsby is a sharp dressed man.

  29. The book was magnificent! The 1974 movie with Robert Redford was too. I haven't seen the new version and really should because of my love of period fashion. I am concerned that what you said about choppy and fast moving--as most movies are now to keep our focus--might just spoil some of the dream-like quality Fitzgerald wanted to convey through his pages. ...

  30. I can't wait to see The Gatsby, those Prada vintage dresses and Leo's suits are amazing.

    p.s. I too heard that the movie lacked the splendor of the book :(

  33. Oh, Kim, I love Leonardo DeCaprio! I do! My daughter that is close to his age can't stand him. I have to see him in everything he is in! I haven't seen Gatsby yet, but I WILL!

    and

    Thank you for your well wishes. My break was just what I needed! Awh ~~~

  34. I really enjoyed the film personally! =D I attributed the "choppy" editing to maybe the film being in 3D? I didn't watch the movie in 3D since I really dislike 3D in general...makes me unable to focus on the movie since I'm struggling to keep up with the effects (call me an old lady!).
    Although some aspects of the book were left out I think they did a good job in incorporating a lot of symbolism and theme into the overall film. It's so hard when you read a book and then see the film version since there's always missing elements but overall, I was a happy camper. PLUS the gorgeous costumes, the actors and the jewelry!? SWOON! haha

  35. Kim, what a great review! Oh my, Leo is yummy! Hahaha! I love that guy! My sister watched the movie because of him and said that the movie was okay. I haven't watch it yet. I don't really know what the story is about but I'll probably watch it eventually.

    Are you addicted to Candy Crush yet? It's pretty fun, isn't it? I'm not very good. I'm only on level 79 but I like playing it when I have to kill time. Haha. Make sure you get the wrap and striped candies. Those are the best!

  46. Kim,
    I saw the movie the weekend it came out and have been waiting with baited breath for your review!!! LOL
    I read the book, saw only this movie version. I thought Leo was the cats meow in this film. He was as mesmerizing as you mention and I haven't been as enamored with a man on film since who knows when. Yes the costumes were on point. I saw it in 3D which was dissapointing b/c it wasn't worth it in 3D. They did not keep to the storyline as far as Daisy's daughter, Gatsby's dad & how about Nick in the asylum writing the book a la Fitzgerald? I would see it again BUT mainly for Leo. I didn't LOVE Carey as Daisy. The end like in the book had me choked up. It was so sad indeed.
    Ok that's it otherwise I can go on & on...:)

    XOXO

  51. I need to see this just for Leo and Carey's fashion! You are so right as well - you can't make someone love you but have to find the strength to go on!

  54. I love the artistic direction of The Great Gatsby and the content is almost true to the book. I forgot about Daisy's daughter and Gatsby's dad attending the funeral!!!

    I also hadn’t imagined Tom to look like that and also Gatsby himself to look as charming as Leo. Ever since Leo got older and fatter, I’ve never every thought he was charming. However, he looked really dashing in this movie. I love his ivory suit at tea and his slouchy pullover sweater too! OMG. He looks so hunky in that sweater right? I kept whispering to my hubby leo is really good-looking in that. That outfit kinda look too modern for the setting though, don't you think so? I like the actress who played Daisy too.

    My hubby isn’t a literature and arts buff. He was initially drawn to the show but closer to the end, he said it was a little boring. I kinda agree with him though I still love the visuals.
