  • Oliver Stone’s 1987 classic Wall Street stars Charlie Sheen, Martin Sheen, Daryl Hannah, and Michael Douglas. Douglas plays corporate raider Gordon Gekko, a performance which earned him an Academy Award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture at the 1987 Oscars. It spawned a 2010 sequel entitled Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps which stars Douglas who reprises his role as Gekko, Carey Mulligan, Josh Brolin, Susan Sarandon, and Shia LaBeouf.
  • Part film noir, part drama, and part mystery, Chinatown stars Jack Nicholson as private detective JJ Gittes as he unravels a mystery that is full of corruption and deceit in the 1930s. Nominated for eleven awards at the 1974 Academy Awards, it took home the prize for Best Original Screenplay.
  • Office Space is a change of pace from the previous mentioned dramas. Mike Judge’s comedy stars Gary Cole, Jennifer Aniston, Stephen Root, Diedrich Bader, and Ron Livingston. The plot revolves around three employees of fictional company Initech who decide to create computer software that steals a fraction of a penny from each of the company’s transactions. Since its release in 1999, it has gone on to become a cult classic.
