I don’t think too many of us were looking particularly forward to Oliver Stone’s sequel to Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps. It’s been, what, 22 years since the original (Jesus, is that right?) Fans of Shia LaBeauf probably never even saw the original, and Carey Mulligan — excellent actress though she is — is not particularly well known.
But you know what? 1) A good sinister Michael Douglas role always seems appealing and none was better than Gordon Gekko, and 2) “Sympathy for the Devil” makes almost anything exciting. Seriously — the next time you make Hamburger Helper, try playing the Stones’ song while you’re eating it. It’ll taste so much better — and I hear that Rolling Stones’ music actually helps cut down on the sodium.
