Honestly, you should check out The Colour of Money. It'd make a fantastic double bill with Hard Eight. They're uncannily alike except that instead of John C. Reilly you get the far less sympathetic, far more in your face Tom Cruise, and Paul Newman plays a great 'Sydney' kind of character. Seriously, give it a try. I'd be really surprised if you don't end up liking it.
Regarding Cosmopolis, I dunno, I'm just not a fan of Cronenberg, I guess. His films always seem really cold to me. In that sense, he sort of reminds me of Kubrick, except Cronenberg doesn't even have Kubrick's visual flair.
Anyway, just watched ...
The Breakfast Club
A Few Good Men
