    Nic Cage and the hottie Elisabeth Shue.....

    First time I saw it, I hated it..... Now, I absolutely love that movie. Impressive shots of Sin City...... and the grit that you also get in the Cooler..... another stellar flick. Great semblances of the seedy side of vegas and the tortures of life. I need a drink....... movie's starting.

    Agreed on all counts... especially "hottie" Elizabeth Shue! She's been my "ultra-crush" since Adventures in Babysitting or whatever that movie was called... I just watch it for her!

    Also agree on great shots of LV and Elizabeth Shue. Been too long since I've seen it, might have to break it out.

    Well, I like the movie, very well-acted and directed, lots of great scenery, and a dynamic relationship between the stars. However, so much of the movie is uncomfortable and unpleasant, hard to watch too often, ymmv.

    Just finished.., i'm wasted.....3/4 of a fifth of goose and several makers on the rocks..... the movie is simply sublime. Every trip, I need my time at Terribles, Casino Royale and downtown.... I often venture out to the Silver Nugget and Longhorn. I need seedy Vegas

    Call me weird, but despite my 5 star rooms at Wynn and Aria, vegas to me, at it's purest form is $5 blackjack, waching the roughians on display.....that's Vegas!

    Time to watch the Cooler, as my next trip is 4 weeks away!

    Don't look now guys, but Shue is going to turn 50 next year
    And yes, she is still a hottie.

    Glad to see I'm not alone in my Shue "worship"... she always seemed like an "attainable hottie" (whatever that means)... not like today's Kate Upton or someone who is just uber-hot and out of most of our leagues, but the way she carries herself and naturally just looks great!

    I did google her when she came on CSI and found out the big 50 is approaching (a milestone I passed just 4 short years ago!), but though she shows some of the extra "miles", she still has that sexy way of walking and standing and that teasing "look" about her! BTW... I don't feeling like I'm cheating here... my wife knows that if I ever met Elizabeth, I follow her like a puppy! Up to the point she told me to get lost of course...

    First time I saw Leaving Las Vegas, it bummed us all out, til one wit said, "Well, THAT was the Feel-Good Hit of the Year!" and we all died laughing because it broke the tension.

    Now I just salivate in that scene where NC trolls the rows of liquor bottles.
