I hadn't heard about it either, but it seems like my kind of film. I like Statham-movies...

I grew up on action movies, but not many good ones are produced anymore...

Bad Teacher 2011

Watched the "Bad Teacher."

An off-color comedy starring Cameron Diaz, who plays a gold digging teacher looking for her 'Captain-Save-a-Hoe.' I thought this movie was pretty humorous, with a supporting cast that gets off-color humor as well.

I have found some of Cameron's off-camera comments to be rather annoying, but you can't help but like her in this role. She is somehow charming and obnoxious at the same time.

Her interactions with the supporting cast feel more like comics throwing out stand up instead of something that was overly scripted or planned.

3/5 Stars.

Not sure what to make of margin call, although one of my favorite actors kevin spacy(the usual suspects) is in it. It appears to be somewhat about collapse of Lehman brothers, fall of 2008.

I recently watched(twice) Moneyball, probably the greatest movie ever made about the use of statistics in business. Having read the excellent book by Michael Lewis, I waited a long time to see it. You don't have to be a baseball fan or a Bill James fan to like it.

but I believe a must see movie for any system trader.

too bad I couldn't get my wife to come along, but she did say that Brad Pitt is easy on the eyes

Moneyball - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Paranormal Activity 3

Saw it this weekend with my girlfriend. She's a horror movie junkie and has seen the previous two films, and she thought that this most recent installment was quite scary. If you're not familiar with the "Paranormal Activity" series, the hook is that the film is composed almost entirely of 'found video footage' of the kind you'd film with a home movie camera. This allows for some really uncanny sequences where strange phenomena takes on an extra level of spookiness because the low budget filming makes it seem that much more believable.

For me, after a while, the suspense almost got a little drawn out, and it seemed like you're just waiting for something to happen while watching "home movies" - I had the same criticism of "The Blair Witch Project," of which this film is a fairly close relative. Still, if you're looking for some really effective suspenseful movie making, this should do it for you, and it's free of all the goofy special effects and gore that ruins a lot of other movies.

Gotta admire the fact that the movie was made for roughly $5M and yet raked in $55M over the weekend!

P.S. Thanks for the tip about Moneyball. One of my friends who works at a hedge fund had some of the same impressions as you.

Really good movie here! I would say it is like the financial equivalent of 'HEAT.'

In all honesty, there really wasn't a whole lot to the movie, but just the scenes, settings, ambiance of the situations, some of the conversations really give it a deep feel. The plot is rather simple, it isn't too involved, but it is delivered in such a way that makes it feel more than it is.

Forrest approves

4/5 stars.

This looks like it might be good when it comes out.

I plan to watch "Margin Call" and "Drive" this weekend. Both hopefully good movies.
