    Are you issuing announcements of upcoming reviews now in an attempt to motivate us all to see each movie before we read the review? JPFMovies subscribers have HOMEWORK now? What is the deal? :-)

      Wait, now I am “others”? I put out quite a few suggestions, so am pleased to at last be seeing one taken up. Also, understanding some of what brought about this financial meltdown is certainly not going to be a waste of anyone’s time. You could assign this film alongside Michael Lewis’ “The Great Short” for a fuller, more complete understanding. Now, that would be homework.

      And it’s going to get rougher…dude, I forgot to mention this in my other comment responding your so-called gauntlet, but I respectfully request a review of “Dance Me to the Edge of Love” in which YOU explain how Tarantino stole that idea from an Asian movie.

    Have you reviewed “Freakonomics”? I noticed that the film is a bit more up-to-date than the book, or at least the first book. This should generate quite a bit of discussion and is easily available for instant viewing on Netflix.
    So, yes, here’s another suggestion.
    thanks.

    On the subject of Freakonomics, I just found out from Twitter that the blog has moved from the NYT. Levitt’s first blog post at the new location (aptly enough for a discussion at this website) contains a link to a video:

    http://www.freakonomicsmedia.com/2011/03/08/no-more-censors/

    The video is of George Carlin, so if you’re careful about the language your kids hear, don’t share this one with them…

    Oh, and the new Freakonomics website also has a link to Paste Magazine’s “The 20 Best Documentaries of 2010.” Of course everyone’s list is different, but anyway, this one provides some fodder to work with for us documentary-lovers (naturally Freakonomics is on the list):
