    I'm so glad I found this message board. Have made reservations for a trip to Las Vegas in way too long of a time and reading these trip reports gives me good information and lets me live vicariously as I read them... thanks!!! I'm thinking of downloading a couple of movies to my iPad to watch on the plane on the way out there.... what are you favorite Vegas movies to help you get psyched for the visit?

    Obligatory mentions...

    Hangover (the first one, don't bother with second or third)

    Casino (a classic, but there are scenes from that movie I can just watch and re-watch and not get bored with)

    The one I will beg you to watch if you haven't already...

    Think like a man too (the first movie is better, but the second one is based around a Vegas trip, and it's a really good film)

    If my recommendation can't talk you into it, here's the trailer. If you're a Kevin Hart fan, it's an automatic sell.

    The matt Damon movie Jason Bourne has some neat Vegas scenes.

    well my avatar says that Vegas Vacation is my favorite... I think many of us could relate to Clark's reaction when he hears the sounds of the casino... Cousin Eddie is priceless... "Come on, Clark, the night is young... they're giving away free hot sandwiches at the blood bank."

    I go with Con Air because it mentally prepares me for flying Spirit. :cuss:
    For a tearjerker, 2012. The imagery of Vegas crumbling gets me crying every time. :cry:

    "Last Vegas" would be good on the flight. It's corny but cheerful, low key, and you can actually see the sights in the film. Maybe I'll download it for mine!
     
    Optimistic, might make Identity Gold?

    It SURE does!!! I just watched this movie a few weeks ago... I really liked it... and can't believe it's the first Jason Bourne movie I've watched. I've now got to watch the 1st one in the series and watch them in order.

    I like comedies and/or action... pretty girls, blow some shit up, crash some cars and add a little drama in there. I'm not readin' no sub-titles and I don't wanna have to think... just lay back and enjoy!
