Chapter Highlights
 Ch. 1:  A variation on the New Line Cinema trailer. Then the score begins.
 Ch. 2:  Rap beats.
 Ch. 4:  Starts with a cool score. 0:50 in there is, in my opinion, the best bass sound in the world. You can feel it resonate in your ears. It is so smooth.
 Ch. 6:  More rap beats.
 Ch. 9:  Another rap beat.
 Ch. 14:  More of the score followed by a Farari screaming down the street at night.
 Ch. 17:  Really cool score.
 Ch. 19:  1:45 drum beats.
 Ch. 20:  Again the score.
 Ch. 22:  Rap Music 1:45 in.
 Ch. 23:  3:20 in there is a bass sound that deceptively fills the room.
 Ch. 24:  A well lit scene with good close ups for testing flesh tones.
 Ch. 25:  A blue effect in the office and back to normal when on the other end of the phone line.
 Ch. 26:  A great view of the city when the camera pans around them.
 Ch. 27:  A panning shot of the courthouse.
 Ch. 32:  "Get The F--- Up" a neat rap song while the credits roll. More where that came from follow.
 Strengths:  Score and soundtrack, Sound
 Weaknesses:  I don't like the packaging New Line Cinema and Warner Brothers have chosen. I prefer the clamshell case.
 Running Time:  Approx. 120 minutes
 Synopsis:  Seth Davis (Giovanni Ribisi, Saving Private Ryan) runs a small-time casino operation out of his apartment. With his streetwise business smarts, he's recruited to join the city's newest and hottest stock brokerage firm, an aggressive, renegade corporation far from the traditions of Wall Street. Trained by the company's top young turks, Chris (Vin Diesel, Saving Private Ryan) and Greg (Nicky Katt, A Time To Kill, The Limey), Seth takes quickly to to his new job's instant riches and fast-life pleasures. He even gains new favor with his estranged father (Ron Rifkin, L.A. Confidential). When Seth wins the eye of Greg's ex-girlfriend Abbie (Nia Long, The Best Man), it all seems too good to be true. But he's about to learn the devestating secret behind all this intoxicating success. Just as quickly as he was seduced into the firm, Seth finds hiself caught in a trap that could bring himself, his father and his whole world crashing down.

With riveting performances from its dynamic cast, including Academy Award® winner Ben Affleck (Good Will Hunting, Shakespere In Love), BOILER ROOM takes you deep inside the relentless, cutthroat inner sanctum of high-risk finance for an unforgettable and unexpected climax.
 Other Thoughts:  I love this movie, this is at leat the third time I have watched it. It has one of the coolest scores. Try watching the movie with the isolated score and commentary. It rules although the composer talks over my favorite part.
