I seem to run out of gambling movies to watch, so I thought we all might work together compiling a list of interesting / watchable gambling related movies.

For starters, in no particular order:

Casino
21
House of Games
Ocean's 11 - 13 (Clooney)
Ocean's 11 (Sinatra)
Shade
The Grand
The Gambler
Bugsy
Croupier
Deal
The Cincinnati Kid
The Cooler
Sydney
Rounders
Lucky You
Du Shen 1 + 2
The Sting 1 + 2

I have seen that one, and I was just trying to
remember the name of it ! A very interesting
study on human nature, and a cautionary
tale (except that it is based on real events).

THANKS...........

I think there are several threads already btw



selected comments,

The Grand - saw this and don't remember a thing except it was "fair"
The Gambler - sounds like Dostoevsky but probably isnt
Sydney - this movie has been discussed?; it's "Hard 8" or "$2000 Hard 8" ?

Previous thread.
Each of us is entitled to his own opinion, but not to his own facts. Preparing for a fight about your bad decision is not as smart as making a good decision.

Thanks for linking the other threads!

Yes Sydney and $2000 Hard Eight is the same. The latter must be the DVD title or something.

The Gambler is not Dostojevsky, but a character study none the less. Starring James Caan as a gambling addict / college professor.

The Ultimate Winner (2011) - It is a Singapore production about a native gambler. I liked it. - I would like to hear your opinions too.

Two for the Money - Horrible acting, but Pacino just seems to make losing money so much fun!
