Memory’s unreliable … Memory’s not perfect. It’s not even that good. Ask the police; eyewitness testimony is unreliable … Memory can change the shape of a room or the color of a car. It’s an interpretation, not a record. Memories can be changed or distorted, and they’re irrelevant if you have the facts.

— Leonard in Memento (2000)

The Dark Knight Rises Ultimate Trilogy Trailer - Christopher Nolan Batman Movie Legacy HD

Morpheus: I can see it in your eyes. You have the look of a man who accepts what he sees because he’s expecting to wake up. Ironically, this is not far from the truth. Do you believe in fate, Neo? 

Neo: No. 

Morpheus: Why not? 

Neo: ‘Cause I don’t like the idea that I’m not in control of my life. 

Morpheus: I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. What you know, you can’t explain. But you feel it. You felt it your entire life. That there’s something wrong with the world. You don’t know what it is, but it’s there. Like a splinter in your mind - driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I’m talking about? 

GREAT GATSBY Trailer (2012) Movie HD 

"From the uniquely imaginative mind of writer/producer/director Baz Luhrmann comes the new big screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel, The Great Gatsby. The filmmaker will create his own distinctive visual interpretation of the classic story, bringing the period to life in a way that has never been seen before, in a film starring Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role. "The Great Gatsby" follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super-rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles."

Awesome.  One of my favorite books.  Robert Redford’s adaptation was kind of lacking and could have definitely captured a lot more of the themes, characters, and story.  Definitely excited to see Baz’s take on this story since he did a great job with Romeo + Juliet and Moulin Rouge!.  

Ted.

This.  looks.  awesome.

I should get back into Wilfred.
