Yesterday Warner Brothers released a new trailer for their upcoming film, The Great Gatsby with Lana Del Rey’s “Young and Beautiful” song included. I’m still not quite sure if I’m more excited about the film, the amazing sound track, or the all-star cast. I’ve clearly been crushing on Leo since the Titanc days, and he’s quite the fine wine if you ask me.
Anyone else planning on throwing a Gatsby themed party when this is released?
Is anyone else anywhere near excited as me that Matilda is coming to Broadway? I haven’t seen a show on there since Beauty and the Beast (3 times..), so I think I’m long overdue for a trip. Hopefully I can to sneak in to NYC at some point in the next few months to catch a show. I’m pretty sure that this movie was my first introduction to dark humor as a child. I mean, really, who doesn’t remember (and love) the chokey? The FBI sneaking around Harry Wormwood’s illegal car scam? The mother who was obsessed with tv shows and bingo? And the brother? Oh, I almost wish there was a spin-off of him just so we could see the terror Harry Jr grew up to be!
Also, the chocolate cake scene was pretty hilarious. Without question, one of my favorite movie scenes of all time. Any time my sisters or I make anything with chocolate to this day, we may or may not quote multiple parts of this scene. Judgement can commence, but really, you know its great, too. And if you don’t, please watch the video below and appreciate.
I casually made a reference to this movie a while back and didn’t expect a 26 year old male to catch it, but he then proceeded to pull out a copy of the film ON DVD (!!) out of his movie cabinet. Win. While we may have had ‘mean’ teachers growing up, the Trunchbull made us all realize that we really didn’t have it that bad after all. Plus, I’m pretty sure the chokey is illegal on multiple levels. In every state.
Anyone else excited to see this on Broadway? Have you watched the movie recently? Am I the only one who thinks this classic is AWESOME and was destined for yet another comeback?!
