The Wolf of Wall Street – 5 out of 5
The moment I saw the trailer for The Wolf of Wall Street—wait, what trailer you ask? Why this one!
I’m not a fan of Kanye West but that song fits so well and the trailer is edited so amazingly. Anyway, the moment I saw that, I knew I wanted to see the film but since I’m reluctant to spend money on a theater ticket on any movie that has the potential to not keep me entertained the entire time for my dollar (and also has a three hour running time—I have a small bladder), I waited till it hit Blu-Ray and DVD. However, even then, I was busy with life (mostly moving into a new place and trying to fight off the angry spirits that were residing in the walls) and it took some time for me to finally sit down with the film. After doing so, I really regret not forcing free three hours of my time to watch this one sooner.

respect than PETA treats those who have differences of opinion with them.
|One complaint I don't have...those purple suspenders.|
|I'm not a Wall Street type but I am liking the parties they throw.|
The Wolf of Wall Street is a hilarious, almost loving rendition of a man whose obsession with being the best and richest lead him down a life that would kill weaker mortals. Is Belfort represented as a hero in the film? Kinda. Did that make the film anything less than entertaining? Fuck no!
