Welcome to another Thursday Movie Picks, the weekly series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves that consists of picking three films to fit the week's theme.
This week was tough. Probably because I'm not rich and I don't give a damn about this kind of movies. But here's my three picks anyway
With the help of a magic pill that allows him to use 100 percent of his brain abilities, a struggling writer becomes a Financial wizard. With that, however, comes danger. It's basically the original Lucy. And by far the best version. I haven't seen it in a while but I remember it being tense and very engaging.
The simple task of getting a haircut soon develops into an odyssey for 28-year-old billionaire Eric Packer as he meets people who start to tear his world apart. This is probably one of the worst things Cronenberg has made. It's dreadful. Robert Pattinson is quite good though.
The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)
It follows the rise and fall of real-life stockbroker Jordan Belfort who lives the high life involving crimes and more. I hated this movie. Truly hated it. I really don't get all the praise. I only saw 3 hours of cursing, sex, drugs and Jonah Hill's penis.
