Hey Zengarmy,

Can you believe that my last movie review on this blog was in October 2015 ?!?!
I seriously feel like I have so much movies (& movie reviews) to catch up this year!
Some of you old readers might already know that I used to do movie reviews on
a monthly (if not, weekly) basis, but for god-only-knows reasons, the idea of writing
movie reviews just seemed to have slipped off my mind since last October. Haizzz.

But fear not! I am back! Hopefully back stronger heheh!
And my first movie review to start off this year will be "The Big Short".
Now, I know this movie is already out in cinemas back in December 2015 in U.S.
and most of the other countries, but in Malaysia, this movie was just up recently.

To be frank, the only reason this movie attracts me in the beginning
is because of the GODLY MOVIE CAST —— Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling,
Christian Bale & Steve Carell ?!?! HHHHHHeeeelllllllllooooooo?!

The cast in this movie is brighter than my future.

Having said that, the story of this movie is just ...... duh.
Although this movie has gotten high reviews on movie-critics websites —
8 out of 10 on IMDb, 87% on Rotten Tomatoes, and 81% on Metacritics,
 I find this movie quite boring for my limited understanding on economics.
Don't get me wrong, I love the cast & how the director directed this
movie in a very unique & enlightening way. However, because of the fact
that this movie is about the story of the U.S. mortgage housing crisis in 2005,
I personally think that this movie would be enjoyed by only a very specific
demographic of audiences —— rather than the younger generations.

In short, this will perhaps be an extraordinary movie for the adults who had
experienced the 2005 U.S. economic crisis, but probably NOT for the others.
I kid you not, 30 minutes into the movie, almost half of the audience in the
cinema has gone (mostly teenagers & young adults). I'm literally the only
few teenagers who stayed and watched the entire movie until the end!
Honest speaking though, I'm pretty sure this movie will connect to those
who have basic knowledge in housing mortgage & economic stuff, but for
those like me who knows literally nothing in houses & economics, it gets
pretty dull & boring when you're trying to get what CDO means exactly!

Nevertheless, there are still quite a few scenes in this movie
that I liked very much & made me keep on watching till the end,
I'm going to show you a few quotes that I adore in this movie:

Jared Vennett:
Tell me the difference between stupid and illegal
and I'll have my wife's brother arrested.

It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble.
It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.

"Truth is like poetry. And most people fucking hate poetry."

Everyone, deep in their hearts, is waiting for the end of the world to come.

Overall, a very good movie for selective audiences,
