It's all a game... Surviving Wall Street
Turn back the clock some 21 years ago, you have the Black Monday in 1987. Fast forward to some 21 years later, there was the Financial Crisis of the Century. I was told long time ago, event or "life cycle" occur in the 7-year cycle.       1987+21 = 2008!   I should have seen that coming. On hindsight, everything is so clear and predictable.   On hindsight, that is...      The movie Wall Street was shot in 1987. The current …

"Greed is Legal" says the reptilian and aptly named Gordon Gecko in a lecture while promoting a new book he has written now out of prison for fraud and insider trading.  He's older, wiser, cagier and he might have let the world slip by a little in the new post 9/11 world but he's fully prepared to wring whatever big bucks out of it that he still can while the stock market is on the verge of collapse in this sequel to the original Wall Street film.      …

Wall Street: Stone Doesn't Speak
WALL STREET: MONEY NEVER SLEEPS   Written by Allan Loeb and Steven Schiff   Directed by Oliver Stone   Starring Shia LaBeouf, Carey Mulligan, Josh Brolin and Michael Douglas      Gordon Gekko: A fisherman always sees another fisherman coming.      Oliver Stone is reputed to be a controversial film director but that isn’t entirely fair.  To be controversial, one must make statements that rock the status quo and potentially …

   Back when I was a wee lad living on the mean streets of Lacey, Washington, I had the good fortune to win tickets to an advance screening of Wall Street. I took my mom and we drove up to Seattle where I saw a movie I didn’t much understand, but did really like. It left an impression on me so great that even now, all these years later and having seen the movie only once, certain parts of it stay with me, such as the iconic “greed” speech.   If you’d asked …

Wall Street may be the place where money never sleeps, but the film may put you to sleep.  They say it's a financial thriller, but a thrill it was not.  Maybe I just don't understand anything about the stock market.  Maybe it's just the subject matter that didn't really peak an interest for me, but even after a quick refresher of the 1987 film (which I practically fell asleep watching) I felt that the 2010 story left me with a lack luster feeling just like the original.  …

4 Stars:
in 1985 top dog investor, arbitrageur Gordon Geckko(Michael Douglas) was indicted on charges of security fraud and insider trading tricked by his somewhat protege, Bud Fox(Charlie Sheen who makes a cameo appearance). Geckko subsequently sent to prison where he served out an eight-year sentence. On October 22, 2001 a much older and wiser Gordon Geckko is released from prison into a world he use to own and that now has forgotten that he even exists. Seven years later, the financial system is in grave …

How does one do a full review on a movie that proved so predictable that even when I sat down to see it with no expectations, I could predict exactly what was going to be laid out for me as soon as Gordon Gekko walked out of prison.      Oliver Stone crafts a family drama wrapped around today's financial world. It uses the recent bank and real estate collapse as its backdrop to establish a connection to its viewer. The characters are staples of other movies that carry these …

Years later follow up find Gordon Gecko out of prison and starting over with only a little and crossing paths with another broker who's involved with his estranged daughter. Not bad but not fantastic either.

We live in times where the Nations economy is  in a very fragile state, stocks are plumping, people everywhere are loosing there jobs, loosing there homes and everything they have ever known. Oliver Stone's first ever sequel, "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps" picks up 23 years after the first film, "Wall Street"(1987). "Money Never Sleeps" is a brilliant , well paced and ingeniously crafted social economic drama takes what we uses to know about the system …

Gekko: "Greed is good... now, it seems it is legal!" Yeah, the world simply never learns. There will be Gordon everywhere in every generation & every other country if you start looking for them. However, to see them as real as a the role of a father rather than a mentor, well, that's refreshing! Do not expect to see greed here as you would in the original Wall Street movie & you'll enjoy this movie more than you'd expect ;-) If you'd like a movie about greed, watch …
