Ed, so did you find time to watch the defiant ones?

Just watch Wolf of Wallstreet and the big short - just awesome. Why Leonardo didn't get an Oscar 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️.

{Ed001's Note - I completely forgot. Did you enjoy Wolf of Wall Street? DiCaprio was good I agree, but I found the film itself tedious apart from one scene.}

Loved it Ed. I’m a capitalist. I think the hero worshiping, how they celebrated and had zero morals was interesting. Thought it was funny and a brilliant film. Leonardo was just amazing and the “true” story somewhat unbelievable. A film I would put in my top 10 if isolated for covid 19

Big short - great acting, great story, Steve was awesome and I loved the topic of the film.

{Ed001's Note - I just found it utter nonsense and complete cack. The guy was a thief, not a capitalist. That is not capitalism, it is fraud.}

I’m about to watch The Expanse - is if that sucks, given you don’t like W of W plus your choice of football teams - we might be done!

{Ed001's Note - I am not sure if I should be keeping my fingers crossed you don't like it or do....}

I'm so glad I've heard someone else say that Ed I agree it's utter rubbish that scene on the boat in the storm what a load of sh1t
I've sort of gone off Hollywood films I much prefer Korean or Japanese films.

{Ed001's Note - it was just a guy's fantasy retelling of his life to pretend it was better (and he was better) than the reality. I would put money on the fact he was a lonely man with no actual friends and it is much easier to hide behind a story like that than it is to admit he was miserable. You don't do that amount of drugs if you are happy with your life, you use them to avoid dealing with life.

I can understand that, a lot of Hollywood films now just use big budget effects and big name stars to hide the fact the scripts are terrible.}

Agree Ed no one really acts anymore it's all fancy camera angles and cgi

That's why I like Asian films you tend to get to know the characters better.

{Ed001's Note - they don't have the budget so have to act usually.}
