This was one of my favorite films of the year. It starts with a hundred butterflies. It will take you out of India, then out of Australia. In the process, it will crush you like a bug.
Two Texas brothers take on the small town Texas banks. Then they get to take on a couple of Texas Rangers. This movie is extremely well acted and it is an interesting film with plenty of action and comedy along the way. Chris Pine was probably my favorite, but it is a close race. Go check it out if you get the chance.
I thought that this film was brilliant. Of course, I am a fan of John Carney, the director. “Once” is one of my favorite films, and “Begin Again” is a good flick to check out on Netflix. For this movie, a teenager with a life full of problems meets a girl, falls in like instantly, and invites her to participate in a music video for his band. The only problem is that he doesn’t have a band, but needs to create one fast to continue this connection with the girl of his dreams.
This film is an oddly brilliant storytelling about a few groups of professional investors who predicted the fall of the financial packages that were wrapped around a very risky mortgage market. It provides some very good insights into the banking industry and the pain that was felt by the world as markets tumbled.
