Default Any Wall Street movie fans here

One of my favorite all time movies is the movie WALL STREET with Charlie Sheen and Michael Douglas. Just hit at the time I was winding up college and was kind of the theme of most college kids at that time.

Admiral told me she saw something the other day that the have a sequel coming out, if so hope they don't screw it up

Any other Wall Street fans here

Gordon Gecko was a great character. Did you see Boiler Room? It's about the penny stock business. Haven't seen it in ages.

gekko knew a thing or two...

"Well, I appreciate the opportunity you're giving me Mr. Cromwell as the single largest shareholder in Teldar Paper, to speak. Well, ladies and gentlemen we're not here to indulge in fantasy but in political and economic reality. America, America has become a second-rate power. Its trade deficit and its fiscal deficit are at nightmare proportions. Now, in the days of the free market when our country was a top industrial power, there was accountability to the stockholder. The Carnegies, the Mellons, the men that built this great industrial empire, made sure of it because it was their money at stake. Today, management has no stake in the company! All together, these men sitting up here own less than three percent of the company. And where does Mr. Cromwell put his million-dollar salary? Not in Teldar stock; he owns less than one percent. You own the company. That's right, you, the stockholder. And you are all being royally screwed over by these, these bureaucrats, with their luncheons, their hunting and fishing trips, their corporate jets and golden parachutes. "

You're walking around blind without a cane, pal. A fool and his money are lucky enough to get together in the first place.

"Every battle is won before it's ever fought. Think about it." - Gordon Gecko.


That character's entire dialogue consisted of cut-to-the-bone direct lines. I think that is part of the appeal - it reflected perfectly on his ruthlessness.

"Most of these Harvard MBA types, they don't add up to dogshit. Give me guys that are poor, smart, hungry - and no feelings."

"Wake up, will ya pal? If you're not inside, you're outside, Okay?"

And genius to pair Talking Heads' Naive Melody at closing credits. Fit perfectly.

Boiler Room was a great flick for this generation. Tons of famous people too.
