The reason "rap"was used,if it was is because the whole show is based on a line of BS that never happened. Howard Hughes WAS a REAL person and it is sad to think of his demise by dementia and madness.We haven't seen anything but short clips on TV about the Gatsby movie and that is all we will see.

I thought the tone of the movie was somewhat melancholy and strange, but I was glad to have seen it. I loved the cinematography and computer-generated graphics. I thought Leonardo is maturing as an actor and did a commendable job.

The Duesenberg film sequences were fast-paced, exciting, the engine sounds were superior, and the whole thing got the pulse racing. I admit I had difficulty with the Rap music dubbed in since I really couldn't relate "street music" with the Art-Deco era.

That criticism aside, I'd give it two thumbs up.

Cheers!

Rap music (You can see the movie's target audience age group!)
Computer Generated Graphics ( Kids like CGI ~BUT I dislike fake looking "video game style" graphics & CGI Movie special effects !)
Melancholy and strange plot tone ? ?

Fake reproduction fiberglass Duesenbergs used in a movie's plot supposedy to have taken place just after WW I , in the early 1920s~~~

Brad has it down right. Free would be a big price for such a historical misrepresentation. Remember the old Westerns where they fought the
Civil War with Winchester rifles that didn't come into use until 1894?
Rap and music? Vast be the gulf that seperates.

The affects of this raping of [i:97yir58i][u:97yir58i]The Great Gatsby[/u:97yir58i][/i:97yir58i] book are now being seen in the planning of car shows wanting to jump on the band wagon.

I quote:
"This fall, the Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival and Concours d?Elegance will be exhibiting some of the finest automobiles of the Great Gatsby era."

What are the cars they are featuring?

1930 Locke bodied Lincoln Sport Roadster
1931 Rolls-Royce P1 transformable sedan
1931 Pierce-Arrow Model 42 Convertible Coupe
1932 Auburn 12 , 12-160 Speedster
1931 Duesenberg
1928 Packard

Sic transit gloria mundi!!~!
