We have always known that we were the misfits. Preferring the solace of solitude to the bustling demands of our community, we chose to be alone this christmas day.
With 14 days until we leave, we are counting every second. Joe and I decided to see a movie at Kabuki Theatre this afternoon. After reading horrid reviews of 47 Ronin (which I was hell bent on seeing), we settled on "The Wolf of Wall Street". The story followed some jerk on wall street; it's supposed to be a story about the American Dream. I was sufficiently entertained, yet Joe fell asleep towards the end. Whether it was the beer, or a weak story line is yet to be determined.
The "Wolf of Wall Street" was a basically typical american success story. Average middle class boy with a hunger for wealth pursues a career on wall street and eventually does whatever it takes to achieve the lifestyle conventionally associated with success.
It was engaging, funny, emotional, and fairly well thought out. I personally enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys wasting money at the cinema.
Leonardo Dicaprio hasn't stopped impressing me with his incredible acting ability and breadth of talent. Obviously people will react poorly to the film, but we found it very well done and enjoyable.
