Michael Lewis dives deep into the tale of credit default swaps, CDOs, big banks and the few with the insight to figure out what was really going on. Stick with it – the insights are profound even a few years later after some of the dust has settled.

A story about "The Tudors: The Complete Third Season" — 3 years ago
Much darker than the first two season but still very enjoyable :)
A review of "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian" — 4 years ago
I saw this last night in the theater. I wasn’t dissapointed – in fact I was moved to tears multiple times throughout the movie!
I agree with the others in that the battle scenes were a little much. Also the love story wasn’t believable and kind of distracted from the plot. Other than that, I’m glad they took such liberties with the plot.
The book flat out sucks – they spend most of it trying to cross the gorge looking for Aslan. But the movie brings to life so many of the good vs. evil messages that C.S. Lewis was trying to communicate. I was glad that I had read the book before watching the movie – I’m not sure this on you could just jump into without knowing what happens – the background stories were lacking.
Overall it was truly a visually stunning movie. The cinematography was excellent. Beautiful camera angles and scenery. I felt like I was right in Narnia! The acting was lacking at some parts, but overall a very well done movie – can’t wait for the next one!
