“Growing up is something that you do your whole life. I want to always feel that I can be a kid if I want. Growing up has some negative connotations. Like, you’re not supposed to roll around on the ground anymore. You’re not supposed to make fun of yourself. You’re not supposed to ride a bicycle. But I’m a Toys-R-Us kid.”
So I just got back from seeing The Wolf of Wall Street, and it really was a great movie. I totally understand why the film and it’s stars are winning and being nominated for all of these awards. It was funny, and over the top, and incredibly vulgar, but on the whole I enjoyed it very much. However a side effect of my movie viewing experience, is that it may have made me lose faith entirely in the human race.
Now that may sound to you like an overreaction, and maybe I would agree, after all it’s only a movie. But the reason I say that is not because of the movie itself, but because of the reaction to the movie by the people in the theatre.

Spot on. While I saw it for the horror it was, there will always be people out there that can’t reflect and think about things they’ve just seen. Makes me sad.
