Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

This movie had its points, but was ultimately formulaic and did not make a ton of sense. I loved all the sweeping skyline shots and real estate porn though.

There's a whole series of events in it in which someone's life falls apart, piece by piece, when the real estate bubble bursts in 2008. That happened to me. And yet, probably the most significant thing I took away from watching it was that the "and then it goes viral!" musical montage needs to be put to rest! I can already hear the teenagers of the future watching that going, "that's so two thousands."

I am so jealous that you saw this. It was in the mall movie theatre over here for ONE WEEK and then was replaced by cinematic masterpiece "Anaconda III- even tighter this time!" or something equally awful. Sigh.

I just saw your comment! I wonder how to get blogger to tell me these things ... anyway, don't be jealous, it wasn't that great. You can rent better movies for sure, or just keep watching the 1987 version over and over.
