One thing I’ve been daydreaming about lately is the original Rat Pack from “Ocean’s Eleven.” I just recently posted a review on the original movie from 1960. This detour into retro Las Vegas has led me to games of chance you can play in the comfort of your own home. I stumbled upon a nice virtual Vegas experience over at Slots Heaven. It’s interesting how there are games catering to every taste, including comics, particularly the Iron Man 3 Slots.

Movie Review: OCEAN’S 11 (1960)
The original 1960 “Ocean’s 11” is a curious thing. We all think we know the story. Going back to that original movie, it’s quite a blast from the past, a remarkable study in the popular tough guy mythos, and solid entertainment that still packs a punch. At this point in their careers as leading men, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Peter Lawford, were at the respective ages of 45, 43, and 37. They were not “young” anymore. Much of what happens in this movie, despite being light entertainment, is a contemplation of fading glory and death. I’m not sure, but if the creative team had wanted to push a little further, they could have pursued a more nuanced edge. As it is, this is a gem that finds some room for subtlety.
