What I Watched, What You Watched #186

ON

The Wolf of Wall StreetMy week has largely been dominated by basketball. The coming of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament is one of my favorite times of year and I have been making the most of it. That said, my week wasn’t entirely void of movie watching.

On Monday I did see Olympus Has Fallen (read my review hopefully you’ve already read it, but I will say that as I was watching I paused it just to make sure there was mention of the playing of Beethoven’s 7th… of course, there was.

Finally, last night, I watched a little of A Few Good Men on AMC, but there were too many commercials so I bailed and went to bed and read, which leads me to…

I finished reading Glenn Frankel‘s “The Searchers: The Making of an American Legend” and am now onto Jordan Belfort‘s “[amazon asin=”0553384775″ text=”The Wolf of Wall Street”]”, which, of course, Martin Scorsese is adapting for release later this year with Leonardo DiCaprio in the lead, though I must say, I immediately don’t see DiCaprio as the best man for the role. I think it would have been a great film for Joseph Gordon-Levitt, but I am only about 110 pages in so far and it already has the appearance of being something of a mash-up of Wall Street and Boiler Room covered in cocaine and accompanied by twelve hookers. There is a lot more for me to discover, but I’m interested in seeing where it goes.

Now it’s your turn. What have you been watching and/or reading for that matter?
