"Wolf of Wall Street" Jordan Belfort Speaks!

Story: Real-Life 'Wolf of Wall Street': 'It Was Awful What I Did, But I Was on Massive Amounts of Drugs' - The Hollywood Reporter

Jordan Belfort, the man who screwed over thousands of investors and got off with a slap on the wrist, was glorified by Martin Scorsese and his cast and crew in "The Wolf of Wall Street."

Now, The Hollywood Reporter gives him open space for him to vent about how tough it is to be him! Greasy @#$%!

Making the Micro-Budget Movie

Story: Jason Blum's Crowded Movie Morgue: Downside of a Microbudget Empire - The Hollywood Reporter

Jason Blum is the new Roger Corman of low-budget, quicky films! He got "Paranormal Activity" to the big screen in 2007. Since then, he's spearheaded a number of low-budget franchises, and potential franchises, like "Insidious" and "The Purge."

But, it sounds like working for him can be like gambling! You might get paid a nice sum if the movie sells. Or, you might end up for working for a fraction of your usual fee if the movie goes nowhere. Plus, the working conditions leave a lot to be desired!

Restaurant Review - The Germantown Commissary - Germantown, TN

Location: 2290 S Germantown Rd, Germantown, TN 38138

Great Food, Poor Service

Yes, the BBQ at The Commissary is the best in Memphis! That is for certain. Their ribs are as perfect as they could be. Their tamales are also excellent.

Then, there's the issue of actually having a meal there. That's where the problem is. You sit down in the cramped shotgun-shaped area with chairs smack up against each other. The waitress comes over and wants your order before you even look at the menu. Plus, she wants you to order an appetizer. The trick is that, if you do order one, you get it with your entree, pretty much thrown at you.

Very unpleasant, plus the food is lukewarm. Their whole objective is to get you in and get you out as quickly as possible. Even though it wasn't busy at the time.

Food: Five Stars / Service: Zero Stars

Bottom Line: Get the food for take out and heat it up when you get home.

Rating: 3 / 5 (3 Out of 5 Stars)
