Casino Jack was screened at the First Weekend Club so it was an evening filled with music, good food, good people and l got to meet music icon Jim Byrnes.
The above photo also features story editor Simona Atias who is currently creating her own website (which I will happily feature once it’s up). Story editing is a very important, often overlooked, part of the screenwriting process. Even though I am lucky enough to come from a long line of writers and have a mother with a Master’s degree in English, I still plan on utilizing one of the many great story editors out there.
On with my rating system for the movies.
Overall Rating 9/15
I do not think I was the target audience for this movie.
Overall Rating 13/15
This movie managed to be a comedy, murder mystery and drama all in one – and it did it well. I think it helped being based on a book. There were some moments of brilliance acting-wise but my friend Nathan and I were ASTOUNDED by the make-up department. They were able to alter the actors ages so deftly and minutely that it didn’t seem like make-up at all. Kudos!
