Watching Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps is analogous to viewing James Cameron’s 1997 hit, The Titanic. Both films generate the same sense of impending doom, rendering moviegoers with a feeling of helplessness as they sit and watch a tragedy befall that potentially could have been avoided. Where Wall Street differs from The Titanic, however, is in the realization that the disaster is continuing to unfold today. Oliver Stone’s Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps encapsulates the 2008 market crash and depicts the adage “The love of money is the root of all kinds of evil.” Audiences may be surprised that the film does not trash the George W. Bush administration, considering Stone's directorship.
Alpha and Omega features the voices of Justin Long, Hayden Panetierre, Danny Glover, and Dennis Hopper (in one of his last performances) and tells the tale of two Canadian wolves, Kate and Humphrey, both of whom are relocated by Fish and Game officials from their home in Jasper National Park to Idaho.
There are two categories of movie-goers: those who love M. Night Shyamalan’s films, and those who despise them. I count myself among those who thoroughly enjoy the works of Shyamalan and would add his newest film, Devil, to his repertoire of great productions. Known for his use of the classic “twist,” Shyamalan deviates slightly from his previous films in that the ending of Devil does not include a twist, but shockingly, a valuable Christian message.
Resident Evil: Afterlife is written and directed by Paul W.S. Anderson and is the fourth in a series of films based on the concept of the Resident Evil video game series. The franchise follows the exploits of Alice, played by Milla Jovovich, as she attempts to survive a zombie apocalypse while simultaneously trying to destroy The Umbrella Corporation, the evil organization that caused it.
The independent British exposé film Overdose: The Next Financial Crisis released last spring has been made available to Internet viewers on YouTube for free. The documentary provides a valuable warning for Americans that the real estate bubble/bust is small compared with the current bailout bubble being built up with government “stimulus” money and practically zero percent interest rates manipulated by the Federal Reserve Bank.
