AreYouScreening.com host Marc Eastman and co-host extraordinaire Shane Leonard review The Wolf of Wall Street. This one has been causing a bit of a stir, with a fair number of very positive reviews mixed together with some theaters reporting more people demanding their money back than with any other movie since The Tree of Life.
With Scorsese and DiCaprio in the mix, you know that you're going to get quite a draw, but does this one work, and is it worth your time? We'll let you know, and I have a feeling we might actually have some widely different perspectives on this one.
The Oscar train steams ahead as we watch Leonardo DiCaprio abuse body and soul in Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street. We also spend time with Oscar bait August: Osage County and Philomena plus a return to the Crap Corner with Grudge Match.
Episode 62, January 24, 2014.

Plus, some have been mentioning Academy Awards and Ben Stiller in the same breath for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, but is it really that good? Plus, big news on Fast & Furious 7, Guardians of the Galaxy, X-men: Days of Future Past and more!

In the 1990s, Jordan Belfort built one of the most dynamic and successful sales organizations in Wall Street history. During that time, he soared to the highest financial heights, earning over $50 million a year, a feat that coined him the name “The Wolf of Wall Street.”
As the owner of Stratton Oakmont, Belfort employed over 1,000 stockbrokers and raised over $1.5 billion and started more than 30 million-dollar-companies from scratch.
He’s acted as a consultant to more than fifty public companies, and has been written about in virtually every major newspaper and magazine in the world, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, The London Times, The Herald Tribune, Le Monde, Corriere della Serra, Forbes, Business Week, Paris Match and Rolling Stone.
Along the way, he succumbed to some of the traps of the high-flying Wall Street lifestyle, going through a spectacular—and well-publicized—fall from grace. Taking invaluable lessons from the mistakes
