I struggle explaining how I rate movies.
Top 4 are my favorites from September 2023.
I don’t have a lot to say about this other than I thought this was awesome. Solid performances across the board (the casting choices here are all excellent) with a story that’s both recent in memory & captivating. This doesn’t quite reach the heights of Wolf of Wall Street or The Big Short but it’s still an effective vehicle for explaining what happened with the Game Stop stock in a digestible & entertaining way that I really enjoyed watching.

I’m not sure if seeing this on a big screen vs at home had anything to do with it, but this was just a bada** mindless action movie.

The scene where Fink is telling Mudnt about how most writers ignore the common people as Mudnt is desperately trying to interject with stories about the common people. I mean just gold.
And the dramatic turn this movie took seventy…
