Afternoon Links: Here's the Most Essential 45 Seconds of The Great Gatsby 3D, Old Sport

Many of The Great Gatsby’s reviews called it out on its overuse of a certain phrase. Indiewire compared the “old sport” bombs to “when Jeremy Renner couldn’t stop saying ‘chems’ in The Bourne Legacy,” and that’s not a compliment. Exactly how many times were these two words spoken in the film? Fifty-nine, which means that if you spaced them out evenly you’d hear “old sport” every two and a half minutes. The good folks over at Tribeca Film have condensed it down to a very watchable 45-second supercut. May you always look so cool.
