    Who's looking forward to this?

    I don't really care much about movies to go to a theater but I'm probably going to go for this one.

    the first one was good, but I won't pay $8 a ticket to go see a remake 25 years in the making.

    I saw the previews, and actually it looked good. I feel same about Oliver Stone though.
    I may see it on DVD...

    Why does it matter who directed it?

    The crap that goes down behind the scenes on Wall Street is the same regardless of who makes a movie about it.

    I realize that the movie will stir up political feelings in people about corporate greed and corruption, but corporate greed and corruption exists in spite of politics.

    I am hesitant. The original was so good.... don't want this one to take away from it.

    I have the original on DVD. My roommate bought the VHS when I was in college in the late 80s. I think I've seen it 20 times.

    I wasn't going to go see the sequel because I generally don't like to watch shows in which I'm deeply involved since it seems so contrived and unrealistic. But the trailers look pretty good so I think I'll go.
