'Casino' is a 1995 crime drama film directed by Martin Scorsese. It is based on the non-fiction book of the same name by Nicholas Pileggi, who also co-wrote the screenplay for the film with Scorsese.

Robert De Niro stars as Sam "Ace" Rothstein, a Jewish-American top gambling handicapper who is called by the Mob to oversee the day-to-day operations at the fictional Tangiers casino in Las Vegas. The story is based on Frank Rosenthal, who ran the Stardust, Fremont and the Hacienda casinos in Las Vegas for the Chicago Outfit from the 1970s until the early 1980s.

Joe Pesci plays Nicky Santoro, based on real-life mob enforcer Anthony Spilotro. Nicky is sent to Vegas to make sure that money from the Tangiers is skimmed off the top and that the mobsters in Vegas are kept in line. Sharon Stone plays Ginger, Ace's self-obsessed and devious wife, a role that earned her a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress and a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actress.

When released, Casino had the most uses of the word "fuck" (422) in a feature length film.

Bond is back! Daniel Craig takes up the mantle of the world's most famous spy and gives a much more dynamic and physical presence to the role. Slick, sexy and sharp.

Cusack is back as 007 to kick ass and take numbers as he seeks revenge on the ones responsible for killing his beloved woman Vespa. Ok, not really. This was just a followup to an earlier John Cusack Casino Royale parody trailer I did. I didn't spend as much time on it as I probably should have (yes, I know you can spot Daniel Craig in some shots) But it kept me busy on a slow weekend. I think it still came out ok though. I used various films for this, mostly War Inc., Grosse Pointe Blank & Con Air, with a few random film clips Cusack fans may be able to pick out.

Casino Jack trailer. In theaters December 17, 2010. CASINO JACK stars Kevin Spacey as Jack Abramoff, a man hell-bent on acquiring all that the good life has to offer, resorting to awe-inspiring levels of conning, scheming and fraudulent antics to get what he wants. Inspired by true events that are too over-the-top for even the wildest imaginations to conjure, Jack parlays his clout over some of the world's most powerful men with the goal of creating a personal empire of wealth and influence. When Jack and his business partner (Barry Pepper) enlist a mob-connected buddy (Jon Lovitz) to help with one of their illegal schemes, they soon find themselves in over their heads, entrenched in a world of mafia assassins, murder and a scandal that spins so out of control that it makes worldwide headlines. The film also stars Kelly Preston and Rachelle Lefevre, and is directed by George Hickenlooper (FACTORY GIRL, THE MAN FROM ELYSIAN FIELDS).

A review of the 1967 film 'Casino Royale,' part 1 of 2. The film was intended to be a spoof of the James Bond franchise and starred many famous faces of the day. This review is quite different from my previous reviews, and most likely very different from my forthcoming reviews as well.
