    I read the book in the eighth grade once upon like 20 years ago lol and I always loved it. I was excited when I heard they were making a movie out of it. They did not let me down. The movie was wonderful and I loved every bit of it.

    I liked it OK, but I liked the Robert Redford version better.

    I liked it. I thought the acting was better compared to the new one.

    Strangely, I thought the old one captured the 'party atmosphere,' better. It had lots of shots of people dancing in a frenzy. I thought it captured the human emotion of the parties - people basically hypnotizing themselves into a stupor.

    But I thought the new version was visually stunning.
