    I hate the Wolf of Wall Street. He got away with nearly all of it. Then gets a movie extolling him. **** that. I wished that movie had tanked without a ripple. He hurt so many people. 

    A Fish Called Wanda would be my fave. Fast-paced, great performances, lots of fun to watch.

    Donald J. Trump, whenever a movie is made of all of his con-artist ways and how his team of lawyers makes sure he has to pay out as little as possible or locking things up in courts. Talk to the thousands of past employees, including entire construction companies that have went bankrupt due to him being a POS con-artist who is quite obviously morally and ethically bankrupt.
