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.
Today's broadcast will the be airing of a presentation to the Virgin Atlantic Airlines team of staff and employees in Australia by "The Real Wolf Of Wall Street", Jordan Belfort.
He is the actual person that the Leonardi Dicaprio character was depicting in the movie. He is a very compelling speaker and his story is very illuminating about what brings both success and happinees and depression and failure. Of course, we air a piece because of how well it illustrates that others (non-Muslims) succeed by applying (unbeknowst to them) Islamic principles, standards and values. Our aim is to encourage Muslims to deepen their conviction to their beliefs and put them to work to create and preserve wealth.
WARNING; There is some profanity in his address but honestly nothing that we haven't heard before. It's not our language but he's not a Muslim either.
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.

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
The Broken Masterpiece
For many once we are broken we tend to wallow in the broken shards of a life we lived once. Some it was beautiful while others it was absolute torment. Time to choose the best pieces to created a beautiful new masterpiece. Those pieces are the lessons learned not the pains and dissapointments endured. You see when we re create our new self we are rebuilt with the most resilient, beautiful, strong and unique pieces. From your tragedies create you new triumph; from your pains find your new purpose. Pick your best pieces then sweep the rest away! The Broken Masterpiece is ot the end, it is the beginning.
