    Heya guys,

    Boiler Room has been one of my favourites for a while, however I'm looking for some similar movies to it.

    So far I've seen:
    Two for the money - Thought it was pretty good, but Boiler Room was better IMO
    Wallstreet 1 and 2 - Thought they were both decent, not as good as Two For the Money and Boiler Room.

    Here are some I found but haven't seen:
    - Rogue Trader
    - The Firm
    - 25th Hour

    Any other recommendations of reviews of the movies above?

    Cheers :)

    Hey D,
    2 movies to add to that list:
    1. A movie that I find great and well liked among "MONEY LOVERS" is "The Family Man" with Nicholas Cage where he is a bad ass Wall Street Mogul turn family man back to Mogul,
    2. The Thomas Crown Affair - the new one with Pierce Bronson where he is Thomas Crown a bad ass billionaire who pulls of High End Crimes.

    Both movies are about super rich, money, and the attitudes and lifestyles that go along with it.

    Also the Wolf of Wallstreet is being made. That will be added to your list for sure. DiCaprio is playing the lead. The book was one of the best I've read in a long time!!

    Thanks for the recommendations, Capp - liked Nicholas Cage in KickAss; so might check that one out; looks a little less business orientated and more about just living life as a rich guy.

    The Thomas Crown Affair - Looks a little more like it, I'll see if I can pick that one up.

    Havent seen Boiler Room, only that one scenes with Ben Aflack gives that speech. But i bet the rest of the movie isnt too good..

    also Wall Street 2 wasnt too good. it wasnt even about money. more like a bad love sorry..

    anyway, watch The Town its about money kinda (heist) and its supposedly Aflacks best performance, one of the better movies of the year too
