This is my first post in this thread, I think, and I have to say this is a movie every person everywhere in the world needs to see.
A movie that you sit your kids down and make them watch and say "see I told you monsters were real"
It left me seething with anger, the kind of anger i had when i read the book about Bernie Madoff and his massive hedgefund.
The kind of mind equals blown away mad.
Anyway i just had to get that out ,please ATS'ers watch this.
The Big Short Trailer (2015) ‐ Paramount Pictures
No One Would Listen: A True Financial Thriller by Harry Markopolos (madoff hedgefund fraud book for those interested)
I cannot wait to see this... hopefully it helps wake up some of the sleeping masses as to how our "leaders" play with our lives/economy and profit
off of us no matter what (Especially if we stand to lose a lot).
Despicable that this happened the way that it did but at least people are learning about it more.
It just left me speachless, beyond words. and it happened after the fiasco with madoff which means the all of them from the politicians to the
corporate CEO's to wall street are all in the game to make money, and not small amounts, massive, massive amounts of money.
I saw it recently and thought it was amazing, the preformance Steve Carell gives is really quite impressive for a actor that we normally see taking
more comedy roles. I also loved Brad Pit in this and loved his scene where he tells his two young prodigies that if they are right its the end of the
American economy and Christian Bale was amazing as ever. It was also amazing that this movie was directed by Adam McKay whose only other worke really
of note has been in big comedy's alongside Will Fereral such as Anchorman, the other guys and other such movies. This is his first more serious drama
in the directors chair but the movie still manages to be funny at times, i loved how he used the cammeos in this movie to explain some of the more
complex elements of the banking system.
My only real criticism would be that at times i felt that movie dummed down some of the banking stuff as i have also read the book and I would have to
say that i think that the first half hour of this movie was a little bit dull.
