Episode #181 – “The Big Short”

Adam McKay wanted to make his buddy cop comedy “The Other Guys” a commentary on the financial collapse of 2008 but instead, it turned out to be Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg trading barbs with some weird ponzi scheme thing as a B plot. Now McKay is back and he has gotten it all out of his system. “The Big Short” follows a small group of men who saw the housing bubble’s upcoming burst…and decided to make a whole lot of money on it. How does this real-life story transition to the big screen? We go in-depth. We also talk about what we’ve been watching, including “Anomalisa” and “The Grinder”, and move on to talk about our favorite movies of 2015!
