    Agreed, Shia is a disaster.

    I'm inclined to agree. He does seem to be getting his pick of parts these days, though.

    Shia LaBeouf's agent must be at least half-God if not THE God.

    It said in the article that they regretted not showing a scene with Gekko behind bars. If I remember correctly, Gekko never got in trouble.

    gekko did get in trouble, thats how bud dodged most of the heat. At the end of the movie Bud wears a wire and tapes the part where Gekko confronts him and smacks him around.

    I forget the exact reason why, but it had something to do with insider trader, that whole part was a little 'Hollywood'.

    Gekko's 'fuck you' personality was fun to watch.

    Susan Sarandon counts for something. I wish they'd bring back Terry Stamp's character, he was cool.

    Do you guise think Flusser and Kabbaz will do wardrobe again? [​IMG]

    I've never seen the first one. [​IMG]
    Me neither. Why do people like it so much? Is there a lot of sex or explosions or something? Sharon Stone's snatch or... some other snatch? Is there much snatch?

    Not since 1990 it hasn't.

    I happen to like 'Any Given Sunday'

    funny thing is, the guy wouldnt have gone to jail in the first movie.. several lawyers wrote articles about it [​IMG]

    disclaimer: this doesnt say a thing about how i think about it ethically..

    where can I find those articles? Would be interesting to read.

    I disagree. I haven't seen his last few, but The Doors, Natural Born Killers, and Any Given Sunday were all post-1990, and I really liked all three. U-Turn was pretty good too, and I remember liking JFK, though I haven't seen it in quite some time.

    Looking for Fidel and Persona Non Grata were both good as well, though admittedly they were documentaries and not fiction.

    I'm worried that this film will be a disaster, especially given some of the cast.

    On the other hand, it's been so long since the first one that even if this new instalment were to be terrible, it wouldn't reflect poorly on the original (similarly to Terminator 3 and beyond).

    I watched the first today at work on netflix, I think Gekko had some of the best monologues I've heard. I got excited when I heard about the sequel (ever since I heard about it in 07) but No Bud Fox is making me temper my expectations.

    I really love the first film so I'm a bit uncertain about this one. Should I watch when it comes out or not? If it's anything below "very good", it's a disaster. And I can't really imagine the fruit of current project being very good.
