I heard this morning that Michael Douglas had survived his fight with throat cancer, and was shocked. I remember seeing pictures of him in very bad shape a few weeks ago, and thinking this had to be it.
Much to my surprise and delight, I discovered he had survived and am pretty pumped. Michael Douglas is one of my favorite actors, and in honor of celebrating his victory over cancer (seriously, if there's anyone who could beat cancer, it'd probably be him) I'm suggesting a movie with him in it today!
A lot of people saw that there was a "Wall Street" movie that came out in theaters recently, obviously starring Michael Douglas, and co-starring that dude from the fourth Indiana Jones movie. I forgot his name but don't feel like looking it up. It's like "Shia LaBOOF" or something.
Anyway, for some reason, nobody seemed to know or care that this was actually a sequel to a previous movie. In fact the subtitle of the new film "Money never sleeps," was actually a very famous quote from the original picture.
I haven't seen the new movie, but I can only guess that it can't hold a candle to the original. Granted, as time has come and gone, the movie has become slightly dated, but that's not to say it still holds up as a thrilling, intelligent, greed-oriented film.
I've enjoyed this film for years, and seem to watch it about once a year. If you're a fan of Michael Douglas, this is a must-see. It's fun to see Charlie Sheen acting in a dramatic role and not looking like a fool, too.
