The Sting: 3 Bar Bets That Can Make You a Crapload of Money

Written by Don P on . Posted in Challenge #3

DonDoes30.com - The Sting

In The Sting, two professional con men (Robert Redford and Paul Newman) seek revenge for the murder of their friend by pulling off a long con against the ruthless mob boss who murdered him. The end result of the movie is great, but the entire setup is better and even demonstrates several different types of cons used in the profession.

The deception begins with the movie poster; just look at that image above. An older man ("Henry Gondorff") is presumably soliciting sexual favors from an obviously younger, blonde-haired man ("Johnny Hooker") in exchange for money or, perhaps, a strip poker game. And that's not a type-o, the character's name is Johnny Hooker — a name that sounds more like a crime fighting male prostitute.

DonDoes30.com - Heat Poster

Heat goes down in history as one of the greatest bank heist movies of all time. And how could it not? The two leading men are Al Pacino and Robert De Niro, two men that if you stuck them together in a movie about a tornado raining down sharks on Los Angeles it would have gone straight to Academy Award gold. They're pitted against each other as Lt. Vincent Hanna (Al Pacino) frantically and violently pursues expert bank thief Neil McCauley (Robert De Niro).

Although De Niro and Pacino ... Continue Reading

The Vietnam war was hell for everyone, but thanks to Oliver Stone, Stanley Kubrick, Francis Ford Coppola, The Coen Brothers and your father's screams of terror in the middle of the night, we got to experience the carnage from the safety of our living rooms in 7.1 dolby surround sound.

To put this in perspective without giving a history lecture, Vietnam was the Kevin McCallister to the Marv and Harry of the United States: secretly hiding and out-booby trapping the fuck out of U.S. troops ... Continue Reading

DonDoes30.com - Clint Eastwood

Clint Eastwood was born approximately 42 years before Jesus H. Christ walked the earth. During his lifetime, Eastwood has dined with King Henry VIII, played flip cup with Napoleon Bonaparte, shot hoops with Abraham Lincoln, out-drank Hemmingway, and fist bumped Genghis Khan — making him the Forrest fucking Gump of your great-great-great-grandparents' generation.

Clint Eastwood has only acted a single day in his entire life. Since then, he has made a rather impressive living in ... Continue Reading

DonDoes30.com - Citizen Kane

Citizen Kane is widely regarded as one of the best films ever made, appearing on many "Greatest Movie" lists just underneath The Godfather for the supreme title of Greatest Movie Ever, even though it has no business being ranked on any list higher than The Godfather III — and we all know The Godfather III sucked!

I wanted to like Citizen Kane, I really did. The movie begins with an exterior shot of Hogwarts; better know in the film as Kane's mansion, nicknamed "Xanadu." After the ... Continue Reading
