Glad you liked these .. what did you think of the big short ? I liked it in a very weird way .. it left a very strong after taste although I didn't enjoy it to start with but it drove me to read a lot about the financial crisis and eventually made me more educated about the subject

 

Also Kung Fu Panda has some awesome visuals , definitely worth watching too
