    • Hi FerdiS,

      I have seen most of those movies but not all. Like you, I loved Trading Places, Boiler Room and the original Wall Street. That remake that came out a few years ago was a big disappointment. I would have loved to see more of Bud Fox. I happened to see the Wolf Of Wall Street a couple years ago when I flew to Shanghai from L.A. Needless to say I saw the movie about four times on that flight. Thank you for commenting.

  1. Hut,

    I was curious as heck when I saw the title haha. Love most of these titles – haven’t seen the last 3 listed, but should check them out. Boiler room was awesome and Glengarry + Wall Street = legendary.

    Curious to see what others say! The Big Short – though very modernized is good to introduce individuals to what actually happened in a simplified format.

    • Hi DD,

      It’s a pretty great list when you think about it. I did not see Glengarry Glen Ross but from the trailer I saw online it does look interesting. I never heard of Quants: The Alchemists of Wall Street but just saw it on YouTube. It’s a short documentary but really interesting and shows you that trading these days is really more about mathematical models than actual investing acumen. Thank you for stopping by and commenting.

    • Hi easydividend,

      I think you would enjoy seeing many of the other movies on this list. Some are serious and others are comedies. Either way, they offer a real insight into the world of stock and commodity trading. As always, I appreciate your comment.

    • Hi CD,

      Wall Street and Trading Places are among my top picks as well. I could watch Wall Street over and over and not get bored of that story. I still have not seen Glengarry Glen Ross but from another comment and the trailer I saw online it looks pretty interesting. I also enjoyed The Wolf Of Wall Street even though it focused a bit too much on the personal life (drug abuse) of Jordan Belfort. Thank you for stopping by and commenting.

    • Hi BII,

      I still haven’t seen the The Big Short but my friend tells me it’s great. It’s amazing how many financial/Wall St. related movies have been made for the big screen not including those made for TV series like Madoff, etc. I guess real life can be as interesting as fiction especially when the world is full of Worldcom’s, Enron’s and the like. Thank you for commenting.

    • Hi TDM,

      The Big Short is still on my list of ‘to watch’ movies. I have heard good things about it. Many of these titles I could easily watch over and over again and not get tired. Wall Street probably ranks among my favorite from the bunch. I was really, really disappointed with the recent remake though. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

    • Hi DDU,

      I would recommend you see Wall Street if you can find it online. I’m sure there are ways to see it for free. It actually plays on T.V. in the U.S. often enough. It’s definitely one of my favorites. As always, I appreciate your comment.

    • Hi TEI,

      I am not familiar with ‘Billions’ at all. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I almost forgot another great HBO movie that I have watched many, many times already, ‘Too Big to Fail.’ Another great Wall St. movie. Thank you for sharing.

    • Hi Jack,

      I have not seen ‘Money For Nothing’ yet. Any movie dealing with the Fed is dealing with Wall Street. It’s just the way it is. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
