Scooterific

This one's for Duggle Bogey!

Mama mia, what a scooter!

You wouldn't believe how hard it was to find a picture of a hot guy with a scooter.  I didn't do too badly though, now did I?  After searching image after image I found the one above on a gay website.  Obv this man is too good looking to be straight, but what eye candy!  If you'd prefer a hot GIRL on a scooter visit DUGGLE BOGEY.  He'll take care of you, and tell him Very Josie sent you. 

I also spent alot of time looking for the perfect picture to use as retaliation against WAFFLES for THIS.  However my friends, art cannot be rushed, so you'll have to wait till tomorrow for it.  Besides, revenge is a dish best served cold.  *evil grin*

Now, back to my current obsession about Vegas movies.  I read the wikipedia blurb about Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas and it certainly wasn't what I was expecting.  I can still see it On Demand so I will, and I think I'll appreciate it, but like I said, not what I originally had in mind.  To that end, I decided to Google top vegas gambling movies and the list below is what I found.

Casino, 1995 - I saw it and enjoyed it.
Rounders, 1998 - I saw it and I LOVED IT.
The Cooler, 2003 - I saw it and enjoyed it.
Kaleidoscope, 1966 - I don't think I'd love this, but it was made in the year I was born!
Bugsy, 1991 - I never saw this.  I thought it was more a mob movie than a gambling one.  I will watch it at some point.
Croupier, 1998 - Never heard of this but it looks excellent.  Almost at the top of my list.
High Roller, The Stu Ungar Story, 2003 - Bing!  This is the top movie I want to see and I'm ordering it today on Amazon.com, unless of course someone wants to send me a copy.  :)
The Cinncinati Kid, 1965 - Never saw it.  *yawn*
California Split, 1974 - ditto
Ocean's Eleven, 2001 - I saw it and it was pretty good. 

If anyone has any suggestions that aren't on this list please leave a comment.  I'll wait till tonight to place my Amazon order and it would be great if I found another gem to add to it.

I'll send you that Stu Ungar movie. I forget how I got it, I won it somehow. In a freeroll or something maybe. Email me your deets.

They had movies back then? Were they in color?

The Cinncinati Kid is supposed to be good.

Josie said...

Wow, really DB? Thank you! I may post another scooter pic because you aren't so bad! ;) I'll email my address. and um, I'll prolly hound you until you send it. :)

Waffles, biatch, I'd be careful if I were you!

You thought Fear and Loathing was a gambling movie? It's very entertaining and was the height of the 'gonzo journalism' genre. I liked the Stu Ungar movie...not many other people did. I thought it was much better than most of the 'Lucky You' type movies etc. I actually rented 'The Cinci Kid' and liked it. I'm going to have to see 'The cooler' and 'The croupier' tho...

Josie said...

Well PD, it was set in Las Vegas so I assumed it was about gambling. The cooler was excellent and as far as croupier I wanna see that too.

sebszebra said...

You say that is a hot girl. Riding like that, she must be distinctly chilly!

Clip-clop.

Its not really a gambling movie, but I love the casino scenes in Swingers.

Gary said...

If you can get past the fact that the whole plot of the movie ignores the rule of table stakes, you may wish to watch Big Hand for the Little Lady.

Josie said...

LOL Seb. I actually don't think she's all that hot but I'm assuming you guys would think she is.

I wonder if there are undies between her scooter and her hooter. lol

Swingers, huh? Sounds good as does the little lady movie.

KenP, thank you for that short comment, but you recapped the wrong month. I was born in August baby! Hot hot hot!

"I actually don't think she's all that hot but I'm assuming you guys would think she is."

No stripes.

Josie said...

Ah true. You'd go for the striped girlies obv. lol

Wolfshead said...

Iwould have sent you a picture of me when I had a scooter if you had asked. Unfortunately I'm not gay so I couldn't be considered hot. I was 25 years younger tho.

J said...

Watch Hard Eight. You'll love it. Where's Vegas Vacation? Come on!

Vegas Vacation!
I put a dollar in I won a car, I put a dollar in I won a car, I put a dollar in I won a car, I put a dollar in I won a car.

Check out a movie called "Yonkers Joe". Its a fairly recent movie starring Chaz Palminteri and produced by Phil Ivey. It's about a dice mechanic who gambles for a living. A lot of it is shot in downtown LV. It's better than most of the movies on your list.

Josie said...

TY Pars88! I've never heard of Yonkers Joe but it has been moved to the top of my list. TY

Wolfie, YOU on a scooter? I had no idea! Plus I wanna see you 25 yrs ago! Send it ASAP!

As far as Vegas Vacation - I've seen it but I dunno - no what I was looking for. Wayne Newton on the prowl = blah.
