  OUR PASSION: BOOKS TO MOVIES

 


 Follow us as we review books that have been made into movies.

CONCUSSION by by Jeanne Marie Laskas

Available at Burgundy Books this title is a very good read. It has been described as a gripping medical mystery,
and it is. Dr. Bennet Omalu is a young Nigerian pathologist who uncovers the connection between brain concussions from
foot ball that has been eluding everyone else. It is a fascinating to comprehend how this discovery comes against
the powers that run football and its profits. Also read BRAIN DRAIN

In the movie, actor, Will Smith, does a fine job portraying the Dr. Bennet Omalu. He is pit against the powers
of football, the commissioner, the FBI and corrupt doctors. As a Nigerian, hoping for citizenship here, he shows both
vulnerability and strength which he says he inherits from the Ibo people of Nigeria. His vision of American
brought tears to my eyes because sometime we forget the we are a beacon of light and hope. Some are saying
this is a must see for moms. Great actors in the film are, Alec Baldwin, Albert Brooks, Gugu Mbatha (born in Oxford, England,
David Morse, Arliss Howard, Hill Harper, Adewale Agbaje,and Richard T. Jones, among others.
The film was directed by Peter Landesman and produced by Ridley Scott...Columbia Pictures

THE BIG SHORT: INSIDE THE DOOMSDAY MACHINE by Michael Lewis

Is available at Burgundy Books for winter reading. The author wrote the popular BLIND SIDE. And his first book was LIAR'S POKER.
Here he is adept at returning to his financial roots to talk about the Wall Street crisis of 2007-2008.
We get a good explanation of what happened and the big bail out by Congress. I will forever know about
CDOs and Sub Prime. Behind us you say.
Not so fast. As we speak new CDOs have been launched this year.

The MOVIE: This is an awesome book done as a movie. It was directed by Adam McKay.
It has my favorite actors. Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Goslin (great!), and Brad Pitt. The filming
was smart and contemporary with creative breakaways. This movie by Paramont is highly entertaining. My favorite
character was Brad Pitt, committed to eating healthy, somewhat germ phobic, and financially savvy. And he is cute. You will marvel
at the game that hurt so many Americans and some abroad. Do you remember Michael Douglas in Wall Street?
It is alive and well.
