Finally got around to watching the Big Short. I loved the book and was surprised they were making a movie about it. It was very entertaining and explained the housing meltdown very well (and no, it was not due to the CRA like bank apologists like to say), especially how Wall Street was desperate for bad mortgages and pushed loans with real predatory lending.
Even if you don't want an education, it is a great movie with really good acting all around.

I saw The Jungle Book last night, and the special effects are superb, only spoilt by casting Mowgli as a self conscious American boy. It would have been better and more appropriate to have cast Mowgli as a less self conscious Indian boy.
