Casino ★★★

Ok wow this movie was a lot but also not enough? It was Too Long but in a way that Scorsese often gets away with so whatever it’s fine. My biggest complaint with Sharon Stone (at least in this movie) is that she is somehow forgettable. And let’s NOT TALK ABT her inexplicable need to fuck up the IDEAL situation that was dropped into her lap. Like Ace didn’t even hit or cheat on ha???? WHAT DID SHE SEE IN SWEATY LIP NASTY FACE JAMES WOODS?? 

Anyway I felt a lot of NOTHING at the end of this film, which is NOT satisfying after dedicating 3 hours to a movie starring a pre-aged-bloat DeNiro. But it’s fine. This is a Fine Movie about a Casino.
