  1. Anyone who thinks that Josh Hartnett isn't a true movie star should see his riveting, high-wire performance in August.

    Josh Hartnett is brilliant as usual. The whole concept of the financial/business sector made sense, but the movie itself was just average.Josh Hartnett is brilliant as usual. The whole concept of the financial/business sector made sense, but the movie itself was just average.

    I enjoyed this movie quite a bit, I even thought that it flowed like poetry (the pieces all fit together very well). Possibly Josh I enjoyed this movie quite a bit, I even thought that it flowed like poetry (the pieces all fit together very well). Possibly Josh Hartnett's best performance yet, it seemed like the movie must have been written for him to play the lead role. Overall, the film does a good job of capturing the e-commerce, irrational exuberance of the early 2000's, late 1990's. Full Review »

    Don't trust movie critics (generally smart people who majored in English and are annoyed they were left out of the tech boom) to rate Don't trust movie critics (generally smart people who majored in English and are annoyed they were left out of the tech boom) to rate this movie accurately. Some get it right, but many downplay it because it isn't a topic of interest to them. If you were touched by the dot-com bubble - for example, if you lost half your net worth when the NASDAQ collapsed, or especially if you worked in the dot-com industry back then - you will find this movie hard to stop watching. It's not perfect. Some dialogue is leaden, and there are subplots that get too much screen time. But worth watching if the subject matter is of interest. Full Review »
