Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

Oliver Stone dips back in to the well to bring us a sequel to his 1987 film, Wall Street, that introduced us to the infamous Gordan Gekko. This time out Gekko, played again by Michael Douglas, is out of prison and has written a novel about why "greed is good" while working his way back up to the top and getting revenge on enemies and family. Shia Lebeouf is the fiancée to Gekko's daughter who is an idealist that is trying to get the daughter and father to reconcile but gets caught up in the game and is hamstrung by Gekko as expected or does he? The movie is good and worth seeing but a little discomforting when you hear all the cancer references and remember that Douglas was recently diagnosed with stage four throat cancer. If you do go to see this you will be rewarded by a great cameo moment - enough said.
