From what I've heard, both aren't going to be similar to today's Wall Street culture and you should definitely rent the first one over the second. Enjoy.

If your dreams don't scare you, then they are not big enough.

Wall Street 1. There is no Wall Street 2; I refuse to acknowledge any movie starring theBeef. Wall Street might actually better capture the street today, in some form of life imitating art. But really neither represent reality.

With government involvement what it is, Too Big to Fail might be about right. Smartest Guys In the Room isn't really "wall street" but a good look at securities fraud. Boiler room is fun too.

No movies embody what is actually going on. If you want to get insight into what is going on I can recommend quite a few good reads. Though that doesn't help your movie queue......Boiler Room is a good rec as previously mentioned. WS2 isn't terrible.....It's like a mixture of 08 details and then typical mainstream bullshit. HBO's Too Big To Fail is like watching the full length story on full fast forward DVR, really choppy on the details.

If you want some book suggestions just shoot me a message.

Wall Street 2 was enjoyable watching it the first time. Wall Street 1 is a classic I can watch every weekend.

wow, nice quote, I'm gonna have to use that sometime when I see something really shitty.

@OP Wall Street 1 is a classic so should definitely watch it. Wall Street 2 is ok at best.

Anyway, movies aren't particularly relevant to new environment.

Bolier Room is fun,
Too Big to Fail is probably the most relevant.

wall street 2 was not bad because of shia. It was bad because of the story line (or lack there of) and other details.

"Look, you're my best friend, so don't take this the wrong way. In twenty years, if you're still livin' here, comin' over to my house to watch the Patriots games, still workin' construction, I'll fuckin' kill you. That's not a threat, that's a fact.
