Director: Adam McKay

Who would have thought a movie about subprime mortgages and debt obligations would make for such an entertaining movie? That’s the case with The Big Short that gives us a comedic take on the housing bubble and the financial crisis that struck the nation in the mid-2000s.

The star-studded cast featuring Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale and Steve Carell carry the movie and I loved how well Gosling handled the narration duties. Plus, had to appreciate the willingness to break the fourth wall. There are some great cameos as well, including from Margot Robbie and Selena Gomez.

The Big Short was nominated for five Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director and a Best Supporting Actor nod for Bale
