So I saw "Gatsby" last night...

I was underwhelmed.

I went, totally ready to eviscerate the film for taking liberties with the book. There weren't a ton of irregularities that I noticed - I thought they made Daisy's character too sympathetic rather than flighty and vain; Gatsby is supposed to be cool and collected, not have outbursts; and even though I don't like Nick's character, they had to cast Tobey Maguire, really? Other than that, it was a flashy movie with an interesting soundtrack.

But am I the only one who got kind of bored? I actually like the story, and I love Baz Luhrman, but when the movie ended all I could think was "finally!"
