  • Yep.

  • Okay, Not gonna turn invisible, selecting a Bago number 20 The wolf of Wall Street.

  • Although mainly said in the eighties and nineties, the story of Jordan Belfort feels all too relevant In today's world, we live in an era where big business reigns supreme.

  • One thing I can promise you even in this mark, is that I never ask my clients to judge me on my winners.

  • I asked them to judge me on my losers because I have so few in Belfort sized.

  • The little guy is so insignificant we never even see the countless people he scammed over the years.

  • Instead, Martin Score says he's electrifying biopic as powerful as his Oscar winning The Departed focuses on how Wall Street mogul sold his soul in exchange for the American dream of fancy mansion, Luxury vehicles and loads of cash sail on a boat fit for a bond villain.

  • Number 18.

  • The Wrestler.

  • This caught everyone off guard back in 2008 a movie about an aging professional wrestler played by Mickey Rourke, directed by the same guy who brought us Requiem for a Dream.

  • But it just so happens to be a deeply touching drama about growing old and plucking up the courage to start a new life for yourself, just introducing you all right, as well as giving us tons of realistic backstage insights into the world of wrestling.

  • It also offers up to Academy Award nominated performances from Rourke and Marisa Tomei.

  • Essentially, it's one big revenge plot with a Siri's of satisfyingly savage, arterial spray filled moments littered throughout.

  • Yes, we know we've included both volumes one and two in the Sentry, but as far as we're concerned, each one is Justus, important as the other, and both unite to create one of Tarantino's finest works.
