From the Twitch Live Stage at New York Comic Con 2017, IMDb LIVE host Kevin Smith talks to Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada about the development of the Marvel franchise, his history at Comic Con and more.
I am NOT the sort of tourist that Vegas loves. I've been to Vegas and am going back very soon--and never, ever gamble. So, I did enjoy watching this show because it introduced me to a side of Las Vegas I've never really experienced. I just walk THROUGH the casinos in order to get to other places--and at just about all the Vegas hotels you are forced to walk through the casinos to get anywhere! Now I am not being sanctimonious about not gambling...I just don't have an interest.
The documentary consists of Louis tagging along with several so- called 'high rollers'--people who consistently go to Vegas and spend a lot gambling. Some of them were very troubling--particularly the lady who claims to have lost $4,000,000 playing the slots (a game with the worst odds of all and which involves no skill). And, to try to see what it's like, Louis gambles a bit of his own money.
Overall, this episode of Theroux's series is a bit light-weight compared to most. In other words, it doesn't seem to have a lot to say or isn't especially profound. Still, you get to see what the life of a high-roller is in Vegas--the sorts of comps they get, the money they spend and the attitudes that come along with them. Mildly interesting.
