The Vault: Working Girl (1988)

Juxtaposed against the cynicism of Wall Street, which was released the year before, Working Girl is an American dream, rags-to-riches Wall Street story.

This movie is a real treat to watch; the writing is superb and the star-studded cast fires on all cylinders.

I give the film 5 out of 5 ungainly shoulder pads.

One of my favorite 80s movies, this is a deliciously written and directed film about women in corporate America. Melanie Griffith is great, but she's ably supported by Ford and Weaver.

Ant-man Finally Casted?

It looks like Nathan Fillion might be playing a superhero afterall. After being considered for roles in Green Lantern, and Captain America,Fillion (most remembered as Malcolm Reynolds in the cult-hit Firefly) is reportedly in final negotiations to play Dr. Hank Pym in the new Avengers film. It hasn't been stated whether Pym would be Ant-man in the film, or just a S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist, but we're holding out hope.
