I’ll say one thing about Paramount’s official trailer for The Wolf of Wall Street, the new Martin Scorsese joint starring Leonardo DiCaprio as convicted stock market manipulator Jordan Belfort: It is impossible to look away from. It’s flashy, fast, and keenly edited to include only the most theatrical arrogance. Essay question: Am I attracted to Leonardo DiCaprio? Are we? I forget.
First, the trailer.
Everyone here’s playing a souped-up version of a previous role. Jonah Hill‘s know-it-all character from Moneyball has bloomed naturally into a cocky honcho type, Matthew McConaughey’s Magic Mike guru is now a hifalutin’, ultra-confident suit, and Leonardo DiCaprio is the white-collar criminal from Catch Me If You Can as re-conceived in Gordon Gekko’s image.

When most girls were wallpapering their bedrooms with Titanic posters, Gwyneth Paltrow was getting diet advice from Jack Dawson himself. Yes, back in the day, Leonardo DiCaprio taught the ultimate foodie a thing or two about the potential health hazards of red meat. "I hung out with Leonardo DiCaprio when I moved to New York.

This week, Steven Spielberg's classic dinosaur thriller "Jurassic Park" gets rereleased in theaters –- in 3D! I vividly remember being in high school when it came out in the summer of 1993 and jumping out of my seat next to my best friends. It was an amazing year in theaters, with a mix of unforgettable Oscar-winning dramas ("Schindler's List," "Philadelphia," "The Piano"), hilarious comedies ("Mrs. Doubtfire," "Groundhog Day") and action flicks ("The Firm," "The Fugitive," "In the Line of Fire").

There have been thousands of deaths on screen over the past 100 or so years of cinema, many have been to characters who absolutely had it coming. They were the villain or the henchmen or just really, really annoying, but either way their deaths were not only welcomed but expected.
Sometimes a death happens and the victim is someone who has done almost nothing to deserve it, it almost doesn’t even make sense from a plotting perspective, this is just mindless death for the sake of it. They are the helpful sidekicks, the love interests and on occasion, man’s best friend.
