Trailer for The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)


The Wolf of Wall Street Poster

The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)

The Wolf of Wall Street is based on a true story about a stockbroker named Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) who went to jail for 20 months after he refused to cooperate in a securities fraud case.

Jordan Belfort wrote the book that the film is based on and Terence Winter wrote the screenplay.

This film looks like it has Oscar written all over it.  Martin Scorsese directs DiCaprio in yet another film.  Once again the supporting cast is superb and includes Matthew McConaughey, Jonah Hill, Jon Bernthal, Jon Favreau, Ethan Suplee, Kyle Chandler, Spike Jonze, Rob Reiner, and Cristin Milioti.

This movie is almost guaranteed to be great.  I will certainly see it in the theatre.

The film is set to release on 11/15/13.

R.I.P. James Gandolfini


James Gandolfini

Rest in peace James Gandolfini!

The actor most known for playing tough-guy Tony Soprano in the television series “The Sopranos” passed away today of a heart attack while vacationing in Rome, Italy.  He was only 51 years old.

My favorite Gandolfini movies are True Romance (1993), Get Shorty (1995), and Lonely Hearts (2006).

True Romance Gandolfini

Most recently he has had parts in Killing Them Softly (2012), Zero Dark Thirty (2012), and The Incredible Burt Wonderstone (2013).

Lonely Hearts Gandolfini Travolta

He made the film Violet & Daisy (2011) in 2011, but the film has yet to be released.  It may have had limited release on 5/3/13, but it has yet to be available in my area.

James Gandolfini with be missed.  He always brought a ton of energy to his characters and really knew how to make his presence known.  That presence will live on in all of his films and television shows for many years to come.

“It’s not a tumor!”  I’m just back.

I returned from my journey a few days ago and I am finally getting back into the swing of things.  I’ve got a lot of catching up to do.

My goal is to be posting at least one thing per day.  But, I’m not going to limit myself, so there should definitely be days with multiple posts for your enjoyment.

I was gone for about a week and a half and I was pleasantly surprised to return to more than twice my total views on my website from the previous 6 months.

Thank you again for all of your support!  Happy movie watching!
