The Big Shortisout now (On-Demand, DVD or Blu-Ray).

Disappointing, this could've been so much better. The Big Short definitely isn't one of the best pictures of the year. I couldn't get into it, I didn't understand any of the banking stuff. Great cast, Steve Carell and Christian Bale are fantastic. Ryan Gosling was wasted, he's mostly there just to explain things to the audience and narrate the story.

I don't like the crappy documentary style of cinematography and directing. There are some funny moments and the ending did affect me. I'm just not smart enough for this movie. Grade: B-
