Why the Gambling Industry Translates So Well Onto the Silver Screen

The gambling industry has fascinated many people since time immemorial. Nevertheless, the surge in the 70s and 80s based drug series films, where gambling is also key to the plot, like Snowfall or American Made has promoted this industry significantly. With that said, it comes as a little surprise that many people, including, me love watching movies where gambling scenes are an important part of the story. But why are so many people fascinated by the gambling realm and why does it harmonize so well with the film industry?

Here are a few explanations from my recent research;

1. Drugs and Gambling Related Films Offer Depth and Variety

The driving force behind the success of many drugs and gambling movies is the way they tap into different parts of our minds; these movies shock, sadden, inform, excite and inspire. From films like Owning Mahoney, which exposes the lengths gambling addicts go to fund their habits, to 21, which champions the underdog as a group of students learn to count cards and bring the house down, movies where gambling is also key to the plot offer depth and variety.

No other theme covers as many bases as drugs and gambling. Drug and gambling related movies can be jovial and comic or dark and sinister. Furthermore, they can be fact, fiction or a blend of two. Finally, they can be fast-paced and action-packed or slow as well as brooding.

That is just because there are so many unique and exciting stories which come from the realm of gambling and drugs. These stories can be told in various styles; from the psychedelic mind-boggling scenes in the movie ‘American Made’ to the sleek and smooth cinematography of Snowfall movie.

2. Variety of Locations

Location is a major boost too. Many viewers love variety when it comes to this. Drugs and gambling centered movies are not characterized by one particular location as is the case with a good number of movies based on other themes as well as plots. Yes, Vegas is normally used as the backdrop for a good number of casino films, but there are equally many movies with scenes which have been shot in many other parts across the globe.

Speaking of location, you can now play progressive slots games at Royal Vegas Casino regardless of where you are. This online gaming company offers a wide variety of slot games to cater to gamers who do not have any casino nearby and are also looking for convenience. If you would like to play, simply go to the website, select your game and play from the comfort of your home.

Conclusion

The world of gambling has for a long time caught the imagination of Hollywood. The world of drugs and gambling has been portrayed in many films and in many different ways throughout the years. Hollywood tends to cast gambling in different lights and normally portrays characters non-homogeneously, either as good guys or bad guys, as heroes or traitors. It all depends on how producers choose to tell the story. There is no doubt that the film industry has and continues to provide a constant source of gambling inspiration to many people.

FILMMAKER AND AUTHOR ROMANE SIMON UNLEASHES HIS CREATIVITY IN “RED TO BLACK”

“Red to Black”

“Red to Black”

“I wanted to write something different and unique, which became this vampire love story. Vampires can be similar to human beings in so many ways in that they sacrifice a lot for blood including their own blood for love,” said author and noted filmmaker Romane Simon of his chilling book “Red to Black.”

Simon is at it again with his debut novel, “Red to Black,” (The Power of Love). As if it wasn’t enough to create the Lucky Strike Film Festival and write, direct and produce countless award-winning films, this book is hitting the presses in a big way!

This book is about an old family of vampires, Xavier Gains, Daniella Gains and Barry Styles. The story revolves around these intriguing characters and the humans they are attracted to while living in Los Angeles. Xavier falls in love with the beautiful Marisa Childs and kidnaps her away from her husband, Douglas Childs, and brainwashing her to join the fold. Through out all of this, Marisa would not allow Xavier to kill Douglas, as he is doing his best to bring his wife back from the clutches of this vampire fold. This story explores the depth of this magical world and how with the power of love, one will do anything for the one they love. Even shedding their own blood in the darkness for the vitality of eternal love and life.

There are powerful characters and a wonderfully compelling storyline, which was really romantic in a sense much to my surprise. It was scary without being too gory, which is a challenge in this kind of genre. Hopefully Romane will turn this book into a feature film or at least a series of young adult (YA) literature books.
