    Very well done film by HBO regarding the bailouts and Wall Street panic during 2008/2009.

    I saw it, thought it was exceptionally boring. It would have been so much better IMO if they didn't follow exactly how it all unfolded in real life. I knew what was coming before anything happened in the movie.

    Awww really?

    I really the liked the tie ins from CNBC to the acting. I also liked how many recognizable actors were in the movie, their performances made it interesting for me.

    Sorry, dude....It's a grown up movie, no animation. :D

    It does have a very good cast, however, I had to check every so often to make sure that it wasn't a Michael Moore film. It's not easy to translate an otherwise dull subject into entertainment.

    South Park had a good recession episode, as did The Simpsons.

    I think it's an important watch, cause I don't think most people realize all of our money doesn't really exist, that it's virtual, and that no country actually knows how much money it has. And that something as intangible as trust holds it all together. It's eye opening for a lot of people. It also explains why they gave all that money to the banks. Again, something most americans have no clue about. Well acted. good cast. Interesting movie for a lot of people. I hope it opens some eyes.

    And for anyone who has never heard of the island of Yap. Go wicki that now and check out their financial system.

    Too Big to Fail was on the DVR for about two months and I finally got around to watching it today. I thought it was great. To take a subject that could just as easily bore you to death and make it that interesting while also informing was masterful.
