My favorite scene is probably where he spots the two guys cheating


Along with the "Compared to what sequence" and the "Can't You hear me knockin'" one, that also ranks as one of my favs from the movie. That scene for me works almost like a musical.

One thing I like about Casino is that it has such a strong female character, which is rare in Scorsese films.  Sharon Stone steals the picture.  Her character is streetwise and tough enough to hang with the bad guys.

Some folks dismiss Casino as "GoodFellas in Vegas," which is like saying that Manhattan is a remake of Annie Hall.

Robert Richardson's cinematography in Casino is fantastic.  I work in a casino, and it is interesting to see how the lighting in the film varies from the actual lighting in a casino.  Scorsese and Richardson do all sorts of weird effects -- such as having a bunch of security officers walk into separate pools of light right before the card counter is backed off the table with a cattle prod.

I just saw this and I was blown away.  A long time ago I had seen part of Casino but never in it's entirity.  This is probably my 2nd favorite Scorese film so far (behind Mean Streets, NOTE: still need to see Raging Bull).  So much is said about Taxi Driver & Goodfellas when Scorsese is talked about, I don't even feel those are his top movies.  The thing that amazes me about Scorese is he still takes chances (ie Bringing out the Dead).  Casino is a film that is hitting on all cylinders (sound, editing, cinematography, acting, writing, etc) that when the film ends you just want to restart it to experience that rush all over again.

I only just saw this (:oops:) and like shaftr said, i was blown away. before going in, i was expecting Casino to be Scorsese's recreation of the film that brought him back into the spotlight, and to the same purpose. I didnt feel this way at all. The acting, cinematography and stoytelling all surpassed the elegance of Goodfellas. The studio lighting kind of shat me of at times, but apart from that and james woods, the film was just amazing. Alongside Bringing Out The Dead and Kundun, this is one of Scorsese's more underappreciated movies.

What the hell's wrong with James Woods. The guy is one of the great actors out there.

okay, finally rented this again after not having seen it in a few years.  mind you, i did not like it when i first saw it, i think i was about fourteen.  what do i think now?  well, i just cant figure out what the fuck i musta been smoking back then cuz i absolutely loved it this time.  slightly below goodfellas for me (just a notch underneath) but still fuckin brilliant.  what the fuck was wrong with me?  whatever, this movie is powerful as hell.

I saw it for the first time when I was around 12 and still liked it. My father rented it but wouldn't let me watch it cause it was rated r, he said he would watch it first and tell me if I could watch it, but that night after he went to sleep I snuck and watched it but only got through the first tape before he woke up and caught me. I didn't see second tape until 3 months later. Come to think of it, I think I liked it more then than I do now, probably cause i've seen alot better movies now than I had then.
