(***all-purpose SPOILER ALERT*** there may be some in this review)

(1) Shark Wrighter (SW) Score: Based on a sum of 5 sub-scores (acting, directing, writing/story, cinematography &/or animation &/or effects, editing) with 1 being terrible and 10 being terrific.

The mini-review:

The Big Short

acting 8

directing 9

SW score: 40

4 out of 5 octopi

++ Adam McKay is a fucking genius. How did he make high finance bullshit into compelling drama? Well, he did have a kickass cast but he wrote the words and guided the players and the result is entirely surprising and super entertaining.
