In 2010, Donald Trump agreed to do a cameo in Oliver Stone's Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. He had a few provisos:.
I don't watch many movies, though Wall Street by Oliver Stone was actually decent. It's from the 1980's.
carries on our 'Crooked Banker' season as he looks back at Oliver Stone's 1987 feature Wall Street.
Wall Street may have corruption but this Oliver Stone screenplay keeps writing is getting old.
Oliver Stone awesome isn't he? I liked Wall Street! Are you a Michael Douglas fan? I am! His dad too! Michael Douglas was amazing in Wall St
This beautiful music score was composed by Dave Alvin and Steve Berlin for $500. Oliver Stone used a track for "Wall Street".
Oliver Stone's Wall Street was a parody. Some people thought it was a guideline.

thoughts on McDermott's traitor explanation? I love it. I like to think his Wall Street motive is because he hates Oliver Stone
watching Oliver Stone's "Wall Street". reminds me of what an abomination "Money Never Sleeps" is.
It was announced that Joseph Gordon-Levitt will become Edward Snowden in future film of Oliver Stone. But before here are some locations from Stone's 1987 masterpiece Wall Street with Michael Douglas and Charlie Sheen.
Dear Arthur S. DeMoulas, the Board of Directors, and Shareholders, Think. That's right, think. Stop whatever you're doing, take a step back, and think. Don't think in terms of "well everybody knows..." or "conventional wisdom says..." -- think for yourself. What are you trying to accomplish? How well is what you've been doing working at getting you to that goal? Is there any reason to believe that continuing to do it will result in something different than what you've already gotten? I imagine that Oliver Stone spent years cringing every time he heard somebody say, "Greed is good," as if it were in the scriptures or something taught at Harvard Business School. It's become "conventional wisdom" and something that "everybody knows." Stone directed and co-wrote "Wall Street" and it must drive him nuts that those three words are the only thing most people remember from a movie that runs just over two hours. Why would he cringe? 1. It's not an accurate quote. (But it's close enough.) 2. The line was spoken by ...
Rolf Potts - Vagabonding, An Uncommon Guide to the Art of Long-Term World Travel: Of all the outrageous throwaway lines one hears in movies, there is one that stands out for me. It doesn't come from a madcap comedy, an esoteric science-fiction flick, or a special-effects-laden action thriller. It comes from Oliver Stone's Wall Street, when the Charlie Sheen character — a promising big shot in the stock market — is telling his girlfriend about his dreams. "I think if I can make a bundle of cash before I'm thirty and get out of this racket," he says, "I'll be able to ride my motorcycle across China." When I first saw this scene on video a few years ago, I nearly fell out of my seat in astonishment. After all, Charlie Sheen or anyone else could work for eight months as a toilet cleaner and have enough money to ride a motorcycle across China. Even if they didn't yet have their own motorcycle, another couple months of scrubbing toilets would earn them enough to buy one when they got to China. The thing is, ...
Oliver Stone generally makes great or terrible films with not much in between: The good: Platoon, Salvador, Born on the 4th of July, Wall Street, Nixon, World Trade Center, Talk Radio, The Doors, Any Given Sunday The terrible: Natural Born Killers, U-Turn, Alexander, W Agree?

With The Wolf of Wall Street marking their fifth on-screen collaboration, Leonardo Dicaprio and Martin Scorsese have become an inseparable pair. In many respects Scorsese has done with Dicaprio what he had previously done with Robert De Niro over 40 years ago. With so many expectations heading into The Wolf of Wall Street, I was wondering if the film would mark previously explored territory by Scorsese. He had already made films exploring the theme of how money and greed transcends throughout society such as Goodfellas and Casino. The premise sounded too much like Oliver Stone's Wall Street, but slightly amped up inenergy. Thankfully, Scorsese and Dicaprio score their fifth consecutive hit while still pushing the limits of modern filmmaking. Yes, it's somewhat familiar to a die-hard fan of Scorsese, but I was mesmerized for the entirethree hour run time. It's another entirely different genre of film for theirteam up; this is a comedic satire flat out. In addition, who would have thoughtthat Martin Scorses ...
The pains and the pleasure of Wall Street life * Scorsese's latest film about the cocky young broker who makes millions is no morality tale, but that does not make it any less entertaining There is no nobility in poverty", a young and ambitious Bud Fox, played by Charlie Sheen, tells Gordon Gekko, the symbolic 'evil' Wall Street trader so memorably essayed by Michael Douglas in the 1987 Oliver Stone film, Wall Street. If "greed is good" was the line immortalised by Gekko, this may well have been the Fox dialogue that endured. Three decades on, that line is now repeated by Jordan Belfort, the aggressive young stockbroker who becomes a millionaire in his 20s and is the protagonist of The Wolf of Wall Street, Martin Scorsese's much-anticipated latest film starring Leonardo Dicaprio. The films do share similarities. The milieu is the same, after all - the high-adrenaline, fist-pumping, foul-mouthed trading floors of broking houses and the protagonists in both are hungry young men eager to get rich quick and e ...
I just watched Oliver Stone's Wall Street. It terrified me because of my own deep personal lust to own things.
Having praised Michael Shannon, this morning, as one of the great actors of his generation, I will now praise one of the great actresses, Carey Mulligan. Watching her breakthrough performance the other day in Lone Scherfig's fine coming-of-age film AN EDUCATION for the first time since it came out in 2009, I was more than ever convinced that all the comparisons between her and Audrey Hepburn are unfair--to Mulligan. She can be just as radiant (whatever exactly that may mean) as Hepburn, but has far more depth and subtlety as an actress. Not all her work is great--she is pretty forgettable in Oliver Stone's sequel to Wall StREET--but at her best she is nearly unsurpassable.
Happened upon Oliver Stone's "Wall Street" right at the beginning. It has been a while. You know, the more things change, the more they stay the same, only bigger. Back then it was Michael Milken and junk bonds and. He made $550 million one year. I did some stand-up back then. I had a joke: "I figured it out at $550 million/year, Milken is making $250,000 an hour! What a job, huh? Of course, he only gets a half an hour lunch." It was outrageous, some few pension and municipal funds took a hit. And Milken and others went to jail. Now they make 10 times that money and almost put the world into a depression and nothing happens to nobody. Not funny, no jokes.
News Updates: PM Shinzo Abe: Japan to Come Back Like Gordon Gekko: In the latest emanation from Japan’s political gaffe machine, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has compared Japan’s economic resurgence with the comeback of fictionalized white-collar criminal extraordinaire Gordon Gekko from Oliver Stone’s 1987 film Wall Street. While speaking at the New York Stock Exchange on Wednesday, Abe said, “Today, I have come to tell you that Japan will once again be a country where there is money to be made, and that just as Gordon Gekko made a comeback in the financial world … so too can we now say that ‘Japan is Back’.” The PM went on to note that Japan was depicted as a major economic power in the original Oliver Stone flick, whereas in the 2010 sequel Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps it is the Chinese who are shown as heavy hitting investors. An article published in Forbes this May makes the point that power and respect accrue over time and are closely associated with humility – the very qualities . ...
Wall Street: Oliver Stone gave Charlie Sheen the choice of having either Jack Lemmon or Martin Sheen play his father. Charlie chose his dad.
Is Insider Trading Really a Crime? A major piece of financial news last week was billionaire Raj Rajaratnam's conviction on 14 counts of securities fraud and conspiracy. Rajaratnam, founder of the hedge fund Galleon Group, was worth an estimated $1.8 billion in 2009. His conviction has pleased those who want the feds to crack down on "insider trading" and show the fat cats on Wall Street that they aren't above the rules. Although the public generally loves the fall of a ruthless and greedy financial titan — this, of course, is what made Oliver Stone's original Wall Street such a hit — economists have argued for decades that the practice of "insider trading" can actually be beneficial. In practice, the government can use the amorphous "crime" to go after any successful trader it wants. In a free society, there would be no such thing as laws against so-called insider trading. The Facts of the Case To argue that "insider trading" is a bogus offense, and that laws against it only give the government the p ...

In 'Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps,' director Oliver Stone delivers an updated look at our country's economic crisis and follows up to his Regan-era fairy tale, 'Wall Street.' Through the eyes of Michael Douglas ' iconic villain, Gordon Gekko, this new crisis looks a lot like the old one - an opportunity to get rich, again. However, Gekko has been humbled since we last saw him after he served an eight year prison sentence on the account of testimonies and evidence provided by his former protégé, Bud Fox (Charlie Sheen ) and eccentric billionaire rival Bretton James (Josh Brolin ). Now that he is out, the blocks have tumbled for everyone and no one knows which way is up - especially young hot-shot Wall Street player Jake Moore (Shia LaBouf ), who is coincidentally engaged to Gekko's estranged daughter Winnie (Carey Mulligan ). While Jake hardly becomes Gekko's new protégé, he seems eager to help the former tycoon in any way he can...and so the Gekko stand-off begins.
The Synopsis of the Story "Greed is Good." This is the credo of the aptly named Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas), the antihero of Oliver Stone's Wall Street. Gekko, a high-rolling corporate raider, is idolized by young-and-hungry broker Bud Fox (Charlie Sheen). Inveigling himself into Gekko's inner circle, Fox quickly learns to rape, murder and bury his sense of ethics. Only when Gekko's wheeling and dealing causes a near-tragedy on a personal level does Fox "reform"-though his means of destroying Gekko are every bit as underhanded as his previous activities on the trading floor. Director Stone, who cowrote Wall Street with Stanley Weiser, has claimed that the film was prompted by the callous treatment afforded his stockbroker father after 50 years in the business; this may be why the film's most compelling scenes are those between Bud Fox and his airline mechanic father (played by Charlie Sheen's real-life dad Martin). Ironically, Wall Street was released just before the October, 1987 stock market crash.

 So this is the winner of the Arnold questionaire ! Fun fact : The movie that jumpstarted Arnold's career and the career of one Oliver Stone ! To name a few of his movies that were written and directed by him:Platoon,Scarface,Natural Born Killers,Savages,Wall Street...   The movie tells the story of Conan, a boy who was stripped from his childhood by the murder of his parents to becoming a fearsome warrior who wants to exact revenge upon the man who killed his parents, a sadistic sorcorer by the name of Thulsa Doom. Writers Oliver Stone and John Milius, who was also the director,weave this great story with an even better pace, never in it's 124 minutes do you think it's streched out or boring, Stone and Milius give us not only the journey of our hero and introduce us to this ancient world filled with  excitment and glorious adventure.Now the acting, let's face it, Arnold Schwarzenegger is a really bad actor, his line delivery is horrible, almost everytime he needs to show emotion, he fails horribly, wi ...
"Wall Street"...the movie, artwork. I've seen this flick ten times and am still snickering over Oliver Stone's use of contemporary 1980's New York art as mood setting props for his parable of the "GREED IS GOOD" aesthetic. In Gordon Gekko's Wall Street office we get (real paintings, now...not pathetic Hollywood copies) Miro, Picasso, Dubuffet. In his billionaire digs on Long Island we get Jim Dine and Alex Katz. In Charlie Sheen and Darryl Hannah's overpriced, yuppie Manhattan condo we get Julian Schnabel's busted plates, some Keith Haring junk and J.M. Basquiat (I always pronounce it "bisquick"...I don't know why...maybe it's all that white powder he was into, maybe it's all the tasteless white bread he made) half painted skulls grimacing in the back of several shots meant to illustrate the banality of their "sex for stock" relationship. The director's choice of this horrible crap (even the Picasso's and Miro's are second rate) to illustrate the even more horrible crap of these people's lives is sp ...

Just watched "Wall Street: The Money Never Sleeps" and it was so good! It is Oliver Stone's sequel to his 1987 film and it stars Shia LaBeouf (who surprised me with his maturity as the lead) Josh Brolin (top notch banker-villain) and of course Michael Douglas as the legendary Gordon Gekko!! Seriously check this movie out. It's got an engaging story that mirrors the reality of the '08 financial bailouts, tons of one-liners and anecdotes, and the whole soundtrack by DAVID BYRNE & ENO-- *** YEA. Bravo Mr. Stone and crew
Of all the movies about the stock market, "Wall Street" (1987) by Oliver Stone, starring Charlie Sheen and Michael Douglass (whose grand mother and father, btw, were both Belarus) is still my favorite!

The news yesterday that JP Morgan Chase,the largest US bank with assets of 2 trillion dollars,is being investigated after nearly 600 million dollars in European hedge fund losses were acknowledged by the bank.This might be the tip of the iceberg and the eventual losses could be in the billions which goes to show that Wall St continues to run amok without punishment.Any regulations that might prevent another Wall St led international economic collapse are being met by tough opposition in congress but it still falls on Barack to change things and to my dismay he has not.Mr Romney would follow along the lines of GW bush and eliminate all contronls even the watered down controls that exist today and we all know that the powers that be will not police themselves.Oliver Stone said,through Gordon Gecco in the movie 'Wall Street',that greed is good .Unfortunately that only applies to the very few
This week, moviegoers are being reintroduced to Gordon Gekko, the (hated? beloved?) villain of Oliver Stone's 1987 film "Wall Street." In the sequel, "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps," there are sure to be attempts at topping the brilliant, much-quoted lines of the original. In the trailer, Mr.

Okay, let's talk about Savages. First, we start out by saying I loved it. In a year of watching comedies, cartoon, and superhero's, it was good to see some grit, dirt, and killing. Second, and here comes the fun, let's talk Oliver Stone. While watching this movie I was reminded of a Quinton Tarantino movie. Not one, just his style. Which takes me back to Mr. Stone. In my opinion, he has made three movies. Those are Platoon, Wall Street, and Natural Born Killers. While some will bring up Born on the Fourth of July, W, and JFK, I say nay. Born on the Fourth and W are pure political commentary. JFK was his opinion on what happened, based on a crazy man's book. And to make sure I cover it, no self respecting Doors fans likes that movie (I do, but I am not a bigtime Doors fan, and can't put it in his top 3. So back to the top 3, Platoon was awesome, Berenger, Dafoe, and Sheen at their best. Wall Street was great, but was tarnished by it's awful sequel. So we get to our friends Mickey and Mallory. ...
The Best Wall Street Movies Of All Time Rogue Trader (1999) In a sentence: Faster paced British version of “Wall Street.” Plot: Based on the real-life story of Barings Bank trader Nick Leeson, Ewan McGregor does a surprisingly awesome job of emulating the British wunderkind down to his addiction to fruit candies. While a relatively unsuccessful movie at the box office, Rogue Trader is entertaining. Trading Places (1983) In a sentence: No movie about Wall Street is funnier than the 1983 comedy “Trading Places.” Plot: Eddie Murphy and Dan Akroyd are at their best as director John Landis tells the tale of how one man’s fall from Wall Street is another man’s blessing. Watching Murphy talk about futures and markets is hilarious and unparalleled in humor. Wall Street (1987) In a sentence: The classic Wall Street film. Plot: Oliver Stone originally set out to depict the greed associated with Wall Street in the 1980s. Little did he know, it would go on to become one of the finest pieces of financial c ...

I'm interested in the new Oliver Stone movie Savages, but I fear that it may be horrible. It may suffer the Stone Curse. Oliver Stone made the worst movie ever with Natural Born Killers in 1994 after a really good track record. Ever since then, he makes one good film followed by one AWFUL one. Check it out: Natural Born Killers: horrible, Nixon: good, U-turn: Awful, Any Given Sunday: Good, Alexander: Super stupid, World Trade Center: very good, W: Very bad, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps: Decent.
