The Great Gatsby Blu-Ray Review

My apologies I was suppose to write this yesterday. So here is my review of the Great Gatsby Blu-Ray DVD Set

First, when viewing the Blu-Ray 2 Disc DVD set. The movie I had seen before, but the Blu-Ray quality is amazing. It sort of has a 3D effect to it. This is a truly must have DVD for any Leo fan. What amazed me most about it was the beautiful colors it possessed Leo and Tobey’s eyes lit up in the film and what made it more interesting was all the extra’s it possessed like a extra book if you will to the movie. There is ton’s of information about the Great Gatsby from costumes to jewelry, landscape and so much more. The part I loved the most was when they gave Tobey a camera to view everyone from the set and at times he was acting goofy, but he also made you laugh.Tobey showing us everyone on set explained a little bit about what everyone was doing even though some didn’t know what they were doing that day and Tobey mentioned a personal joke between him and Leo which was quite interesting to me. Actor’s rarely show their interaction with other actor’s they are friends with but whatever the reason was that kept him and Leo laughing in the scene they were filming it would have been nice to see it. There was so much research done on the film and Baz telling of how he prepared and got everything together was just amazing. I really enjoyed viewing this and I know you will too. One of the disc is presented in black and the other silver. As usually with any DVD set they include a digital download.
