Top 5 Casino Movies

Hollywood has, over the years, constantly flirted with Las Vegas and the casino. There are far too many films to mention where casinos are heavily featured, but we thought we’d look at the top five we feel perfectly bring them both together.

The Hangover

Back in 2009, Todd Phillips brought a movie to the screen which captured a generation. The first film in The Hangover series was the most popular and, at the time, was the top-grossing R-rated movie of all time, taking $467 million at the global box-office. The film follows a group of guys who venture to Las Vegas for a bachelor party – one in which they wake up having lost the groom. They must try to get over their hangovers and discover what happened the night before. The film is completely set in Las Vegas and heavily features one of the most famous casinos on the strip, Las Vegas.

James Woods’ 12 Most Outrageous and Provocative Comments (Photos)

James Woods’ 12 Most Outrageous and Provocative Comments (Photos)
James Woods has made a reputation for himself as one of Hollywood’s most vocal conservative voices on Twitter. He’s suggested that his opinions online have taken him from once being a Hollywood A-lister in films such as “Casino,” “Videodrome” and “Vampires” to now being “blacklisted.” And this July 4, his agent went as far as to drop him, saying in an email that Woods shared on Twitter, “It’s the 4th of July and I’m feeling patriotic. I don’t want to represent you anymore. I mean I could go on a rant but you know what I’d say.” Of course, Woods labeled his former agent a “political liberal” and let him know how he felt. But this exchange is the capper to a long line of provocative opinions, many of which have sparked outrage on both sides of the political spectrum.

Robert De Niro Said To Be Eyeing Role In The Joker Origins Movie As New Character Intel Emerges

It’s looking increasingly likely that the Joker origins movie – not to be confused with Joker and Harley Quinn, or the standalone film earmarked for Jared Leto’s Clown Prince of Crime – will stand on its own two feet, as character descriptions unearthed by That Hashtag Show point to a big departure from the continuity of DC Films.

Said to be operating under the working title ‘Romeo’, we’re hearing that Warner Bros. plans to use Martin Scorsese’s involvement (he’ll executive produce the solo drama) as leverage to court Hollywood legend Robert De Niro for a supporting role.

This is, after all, a double act that has produced the likes of Taxi Driver, Goodfellas, Cape Fear and Casino, so it’s small wonder why Warner Bros. is keen to add an actor of De Niro’s caliber. He’s seemingly up for the part of Murray Franklin, though

‘The Opposition’ Gives Michael Cohen the ‘Goodfellas’ Treatment With Fake Biopic (Video)
Thursday’s episode of the “The Opposition” imagined Trump lawyer Michael Cohen as Martin Scorsese-style star of a fake biopic that felt like “Goodfellas” fan fiction.

“Trump’s Best People: The Michael Cohen Story,” was host Jordan Klepper’s response to the news this week that Cohen ditched has ditched his legal team and might cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of election meddling.

Narrated by “not actually Michael Cohen,” who wants you to know “this isn’t a mob thing,” the comic short had all the hallmarks off Scorsese films like “Casino,” including the soaring soundtrack. It takes viewers through the supposed details of the lawyer’s life, focusing on his many shady business dealings with many shady people.

Sharon Stone eyes Emmy return with her acclaimed performance in ‘Mosaic’

Sharon Stone eyes Emmy return with her acclaimed performance in ‘Mosaic’
In 2004, Sharon Stone won the Best Guest Drama Actress Emmy Award for her scene-stealing turn as attorney Sheila Carlisle on “The Practice.” This year, with her acclaimed performance in Steven Soderbergh‘s six-part HBO miniseries “Mosaic,” Stone is well-positioned for a return to the Emmys, this time in Best TV Movie/Limited Series Supporting Actress.

In “Mosaic,” Stone portrays Olivia Lake, a successful children’s book author and illustrator living an extravagant, if lonesome existence in the ski resort town of Summit, Utah. She crosses paths with the handsome artist and bartender Joel (Garrett Hedlund) and, hoping their friendship might blossom into something more romantic, invites him to rent out space in her lavish home. During this time, Olivia also meets the charming Eric (Frederick Weller) who, unbeknownst to her, is a con man employed by a neighbor hoping to force her to sell the property.

5 Must-Stream Movies Coming to Netflix in June 2018

The DepartedMartin Scorsese is unquestionably one of the most seminal filmmakers of the last and current century. He is a singularly talented director whose credits include no less than Taxi Drive, Mean Streets, Goodfellas and Casino. He reinvented the gangster genre from not only its B-movie roots, but the elevated romanticism of The Godfather. And despite all of this, Oscar recognition evaded him until early in the new millennium, upon directing this adaptation of the Hong Kong detective series Infernal Affairs. And, perhaps controversially, I think it is easily his best film to date: better developed and better

Drive-In Dust Offs: Phase IV (1974)

Man vs. Nature never turns out well in horror; certainly nothing past the ‘50s terrors of looming lizards/shellfish caused by radiation/radiation. And while the ‘70s switched the vibe into eco-horror, the genre never lost sight of the nagging realization that when we push against the elements, they push back hard. So it is with Saul BassPhase IV (1974), a weird and riveting sci-fi thriller that proves (as if it was needed) ants are way smarter than man.

Released in the U.S. in September by Paramount, Phase IV was not a financial success, and only inspired middling critical thought, at best. Lying somewhere between 2001’s cosmic tone poem and a Bert I. Gordon schlocker, audiences chose to ignore the cerebral looking for a visceral experience that isn’t really there; nevertheless, this uneasy mixture results in a unique experience far apart from other When Animals Attack films.

Great Uses of Songs in Movies: “Whip It” By Devo in “Casino”

Whip It by Devo is kind of an odd song to use in Casino since it came out in 1980 and the time period of the movie was in the 1970’s. Of course that’s rarely an issue when a piece of music fits so well with a movie, like this one did. In the movie at the point the song is being played though things are anything but perfect. The move out to Vegas for Sam Rothstein, or Ace as everyone calls him, went great. He was given the authority over the Tangiers Casino and in almost no time managed

The 7 Best Movies New to Netflix in March 2018

March may be something of a light month in terms of new additions to Netflix, but it’s still a strong one, and it finds the streaming giant doing what they do best: Padding their library with the kind of comfort viewing that you’re perfectly happy to watch from your couch.

The movies coming to the service over this next few weeks represent a broad cross-section of comedies and crime dramas that have firmly established themselves as cable television classics — “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and “Casino” alone are probably enough to keep you busy until spring. March also finds Netflix continuing to serve up new titles straight from the festival circuit, with Alison Klayman’s “Take Your Pills” and Jody Hill’s “The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter” both coming to home video just a few short days after they debut at SXSW.

Martin Scorsese Selected for Robert Osborne Award at TCM Festival

Turner Classic Movies will present its inaugural Robert Osborne award to filmmaker Martin Scorsese at the TCM Classic Film Festival on April 26.

The foundation has restored more than 800 films from around the world and and conducts a free educational curriculum for young people on the language and history of film.

Here’s Every time Joe Pesci says “Ok” in the Lethal Weapon Movies

Did you have any idea that Joe Pesci managed to say the simple word ‘Ok’ about 92 times in three films? From Lethal Weapon 2 to Lethal Weapon 4 he said ‘Ok’ at least 276 times, which is insane to think about. It’s even worse when you get the idea that someone watched the movies long enough to figure this out. I’d say it was in lieu of his other more colorful language that’s been noticed in movies like Goodfellas and Casino but he still managed to get some vulgarity in there as well along with all the “Ok’s”.

New to Netflix in March: ‘Let Me In,’ ‘Casino,’ ‘Wet Hot American Summer,’ and More
As time marches on and tedium vitae sets in more and more with each passing day, we find ourselves with fewer ways to distract ourselves from the encroaching existential malaise. But wait — what’s that you say? All three “Cruel Intentions” movies are coming to Netflix next month? Maybe it’s not so bad after all.

Yes, dear reader, the benevolent streaming gods have once again announced the titles that we’ll be able to watch from the comfort of our own fainting couches once this month gives way to the next, and it isn’t just Sarah Michelle Gellar and Ryan Phillippe who will be keeping us company.

Some other titles that will make their way onto many viewers’ lists and maybe even be watched include “Adventureland,” “Casino,” “The Descent,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” “Ghostbusters,” “Jackass: Number Two” (two words: butt chug), “Let Me In,” “Moon,” “Revolutionary Road,” and “Wet Hot American Summer.
