Hello, Old Sport, and welcome to another exciting edition of “Give it a Shot”! This is Fenrir here, your resident English major here, and between you and me I’m both kind of stoked and kind of dreading this Friday’s release of the 2013 version of The Great Gatsby directed by Baz Luhrman and starring Leonardo DiCaprio along with Spider-Man. I mean, Tobey Maguire.
I’m pretty sure you’ve got some friends who are so terribly excited for what looks to be an artsy romp through the glitz and glamor of our romanticized vision of Fitzgerald’s 1920s — and I totally understand if you’re not up there with the Gatsby hype. As much as I love Gatsby myself, I know I can’t force everyone to enjoy it (*Cough* Silverwolf *Cough, cough*).
But if anything, we can enjoy some of the great video game spin-offs and cocktails that celebrate Gatsby and the Roaring 20s at its finest!
