The Great Gatsby | Den of Geek Review

I will come right out and say it. I love the novel The Great Gatsby. Of all the books I was required to read in high school (and probably college for that matter), F. Scott Fitzgerald's succinct masterpiece of the Jazz Age was my favorite. It is one of the few grade school classics that I have revisited several times and plan to likely do again. It also has the lofty literary pedigree of being "unfilmable." However, that reputation may have been earned simply because the 1974 iteration of the story (and only major adaptation until now) is truly unwatchable.

Yet, from this decadent 3D extravaganza's earliest salvo teaser, featuring music by Jay-Z and U2, I knew that that was not what we were getting. Baz Luhrmann, cinematic genius, madman or all of the above, lovingly adapted the novel to match his own frantically fabulous sensibilities.

Movie Review: Bad Boys 4: Ride or Die – The Unexpected Cinema Experience

Last night, I had the absolute pleasure of attending the premiere of Bad Boys 4: Ride or Die with my ride-or-die best mates, and let me tell you, it was one of the most fun cinema experiences of the year! From the quality of the movie to the electrifying vibe of the cinema, everything about the night was extraordinary. The communal laughter, the spontaneous shouting at the screen—it was an experience that almost rivalled having an entire cinema to myself.
