Maria Bello, Alec Baldwin and William H. Macy
I just finished watching The Cooler. I'd seen it a few years ago but I don't think I'd ever seen it in it's entirety. The casino in the movie is called the Shangri La. After I got a good look at the "Shangri La" the one thought that stayed in my head for the whole movie was that the casino was a thinly veiled replica of the Imperial Palace, the place I stayed in during the WPBT.
In the movie (and at the IP) 'Epcot Center' had sprouted up all around Vegas but didn't touch the old casino. It was like Vegas had moved on but these casinos were staying right the fuck where they were, thankyouverymuch. Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone else noticed the similarity.
Me personally, after staying at the IP, think there's nothing wrong with a little "Epoc Center" if it comes with sparkling clean surroundings. Now that I think about it, when I stayed at the Imperial Palace a dead body was found in the pool (true story). Similarities abound, I tell you!
