Silver Linings Playbook
Bradley Cooper plays a young man who is very sad because he has just lost his wife and his home. After some time in a mental hospital, he returned to live with his parents. The first hint of gambling comes from the fact that Robert DeNiro’s character, the father, runs a bookmaking business while also rooting for the Philadelphia Eagles. In the last part of the story, people bet on the results of a football game and a dance contest. The fee to get in is well worth it. Jennifer Lawrence plays the main love interest.
Greed, lies, money, power, and murder happen between two best friends, a mafia underboss, a casino owner, and a trophy wife over a gambling empire. Based on the true story of sports betting kingpin “Lefty” Rosenthal and the Argent Corporation scandal that rocked the now-demolished Stardust Casino in the late 1970s, the screenplay shows the decline of organized crime in Las Vegas. As usual, Martin Scorsese is back with a group of badass actors, like Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci.
The Gambler (2015)
Mark Wahlberg stars in this remake of the 1974 classic, which tells the story of a professor of literature who has a simple philosophy: you either have everything or nothing at all. He applies this to the betting scene. He owes a lot of money to the owner of an underground gambling ring and a well-known loan shark because he can’t stop gambling.
The gambling ring owner is tired of his excuses, so he gives him a week to pay back his debt in cash, or he will kill him. He asks a few of his students to help him find the money. One of them is the school’s lottery selection star.
The Sting is a classic work of art. A small group of con artists pull off a tricky trick on an underworld leader in Chicago during the Great Depression. They get a group together and pull off one of the best cons in film history, which involves using the now-common “past-posting” method to report the results of horse races. In 1973, the movie starred Robert Redford and Paul Newman and won seven Oscars, including Best Picture.
This song is a tribute to the dark world of high-stakes bowling by the Farley Brothers. Woody Harelson plays a former bowler with only one hand trying to get back to the top. This is a very important comedy.
Paul Newman plays a young, cocky pool player who wants to win the game. Just beating the famous Minnesota Fats would be enough to prove his point. The rest of the movie and another round of revenge are based on how “Fast Eddie Felson” and “Minnesota Fats” do in an overnight pool match. In a moment, Newman learns that character is much more important than talent. This may be the most important thing gamblers need to keep in mind.
