Doors keep opening for ‘Five Bedrooms’ star Doris Younane

Doris Younane in ‘Five Bedrooms

After years of fighting against being typecast as Lebanese or other Middle Eastern characters, actor Doris Younane is in a very happy place in her career.

She’s played a variety of characters, most of no specific ethnicity, in the past five years with recurring roles in Five Bedrooms, The Wrong Girl and Party Tricks plus guest appearances in Secret City, Harrow and Janet King.

“I just want to be seen as an actor in Australia,” she tells If. “I no longer want to be a pin-up for multiculturalism; I have passed that baton on to others. I’ve been really lucky. I think I am a good, solid actor and that’s what has got me through.”

Currently Younane is winning plaudits for her performance as the firebrand Heather in Five Bedrooms, Hoodlum Entertainment’s eight-part comedy-drama for Network 10 created by Christine Bartlett and Michael Lucas.

Best Las Vegas Movie Moments

When it comes to iconic American Landscapes, the glamour of Hollywood is only rivalled by the thrills of Las Vegas in the hearts and minds of tourists. Which is probably why so many film-makers have used the City of Sin as a set-piece over the years with various films capturing different sides of Nevada’s crown jewel. Here are a few great examples of movies that captured Vegas at it’s heart.

Casino- “Cheater’s Justice”

Martin Scorsese’s under-appreciated classic is set during the Vegas’ heyday where Casino’s were just beginning to make it big and the mob was still trying to get a hand into the lucrative industry. Throughout the movie, you get a feel for how Sam, played by Robert De Niro, managed to get ahead in such a competitive industry. While nowadays online casinos can offer free spins on sign up, back in the day

The Impact of Young Users on the Offer of Online Casino Games

  • Nerdly
Casinos make a lot of money with table games such as Blackjack, Roulette, and Baccarat. If you factor in the amount of money that sports betting brings in then that just adds to the massive profits. However, slot machines are the gambling industry’s bread and butter. A report done by the Nevada Gaming Control Board found that casinos in the state made over $7 billion from slot machines between March 2015 and February 2016. In that same period, table games brought in a little over $4 billion while sports betting made about $19.2 million. If you were to take a stroll through almost any casino, you will likely see that slot machines occupy most of the casino floor and there are significantly more people spinning reels than playing table games. You will also probably find that the majority of these slot enthusiasts are from older generations. This also rings true at online casinos where

7 Best Casino Movies Ever Made

Movies are one of the most important aspects of popular culture that have a strong influence on the general public. Oftentimes, they make certain pop culture phenomena more or less popular.

Movies about casinos and the lifestyle associated with them are an example of this influence. Before casino movies became popular, gambling was thought to be the pastime of the rich. However, nowadays, there are more and more people who enter the gambling world after watching a casino movie, with little prior knowledge. Our advice to them is to start slowly by playing in no wagering casinos and learn something more about the theme on Casinopedia.

So, if you are a movie buff and you are looking for new casino movies to watch in your spare time, check out our list of the ones we always gladly come back to.

Experience the Same Fun of Casino Games Online

Land-based casinos are what is otherwise known as “brick and mortar casinos”, they have real assets – buildings, hotel, restaurants, and glitzy entertainment centers.

They play host to millions of people who come to enjoy themselves spending money and, hopefully, making some money, as well. Whether you visit The Venetian Casino in Macau, China, with its 3000 game machines and 870 gaming tables, Casino Baden-Baden Germany, South Africa’s Tusk-Rio Casino Resort in the town of Klerksdorp, or whether you check out the venues in Lisbon, Portugal or Oklahoma, USA, Melbourne, Australia, Buenos Aires, Argentina, Stratford, UK, or Lyon, France, to mention just a very few, you are sure to find an incredible source of energy. This pulsating pace appears to ignore the difference between day and night, weekdays and weekends, Summer and Winter – as it is all happening in a fantastic 24/7 sounds, movements of wheels, bells, falling cards, shrieking winners and calls of croupiers.

Film Review: Girls vs. Gangsters (2018) by Barbara Wong

Following the unexpected success of the documentary “Women’s Private Parts”, director Barbara Wong became one of the newest hopes of the female-centric comedy/dramas that had exploded in Chinese and Hong Kong theaters. Despite a string of financial successes that belie the critical response to the films, her 2014 film “Girls” was successful enough to spawn this outright trash fire of a film sequel several years later after a few years of being held in release limbo.

After becoming engaged, Xiwen is persuaded by her friend Kimmy to take a fun Bachelorette Party trip to Vietnam. When Jialan and Jingjing (Wang Shuilin) decide to come along on the trip, a night of heavy drinking leads the three friends to wake up naked on a beach, while two are handcuffed together to a locked suitcase, one has a strange new tattoo and no one can remember what happened the night before.

Fear The Walking Dead season 4 episode 15 review: I Lose People…

David S.E. Zapanta Sep 24, 2018

Fear The Walking Dead season four is shifting towards optimism and hope. Spoilers ahead in our review of I Lose People...

This review contains spoilers.

While one wouldn’t describe Fear The Walking Dead as happy-go-lucky, the show as of late has veered into more optimistic territory. A lot of this can be attributed to Alicia, for making peace with her brother’s killer. In doing so, Alicia has also quelled her demons, in effect pulling herself back from a mounting bloodlust that sought to consume her.

Fear Twd Recap: No Good Deed Goes Unpunished — Plus, [Spoiler] Is Bitten
Warning: The following contains spoilers for Sunday’s Fear the Walking Dead. Proceed as you might if the Filthy Woman was coming toward you with one of her “pets.”

A hazard of Fear the Walking Dead repopulating itself with characters who are easy to care about is that, when one of them is handed a death sentence, it actually hurts. So it is with some regret that I inform you that Sunday’s “Mm 54” put a ticking clock above the head — and a bite mark in the side — of a Season 4 newbie to whom we were just starting to warm.

Fear the Walking Dead Recap: Help Less — Plus, the Filthy Woman Opens Fire
The strangest, coolest, most inspiring thing has happened to Fear the Walking Dead during Season 4 (the Walking Dead spinoff’s first under its new showrunners): It’s become a series about really flawed characters doing their best to do better. So it was particularly upsetting when, in Sunday’s episode, the Filthy Woman (as you’ll recall we’re calling her until she’s given an actual name) ordered Morgan & Co. to lay off the altruism… or else. And when, as you’d expect, Morgan & Co. didn’t lay off the altruism, she demonstrated just what she meant by “or else.
