The industry around gambling makes for some beautiful moviemaking, and there are too many great movies to name. If yours did not make the list that we are about to call out below, don’t get mad! Whether you agree or disagree with the top 5, you definitely have to agree that the following films are some really great pieces of work. So without further ado, the 5 best gambling movies of all time!
Director Gurinder Chadha has brought the music of the Boss, Bruce Springsteen, and created a wonderful film that tells an amazing story in the upcoming film Blinded by the Light. Inspired by the true story of journalist Sarfraz Manzoor, this wonderful film tells the tale of Javed, a British teen of Pakistani descent, who discovers the world outside his family life and 1980’s hometown through the music of Bruce Springsteen. I sat with Ms. Chadha to talk about meeting Bruce and bringing Manzoor’s story to the big screen.
The world of sports is certainly no stranger to cinema. After all, many hit movies have used sports to tell inspirational stories of athletes overcoming the odds to reach unparalleled levels of success.
In the second part of EM’s “The Last Black Man in San Francisco” INTERVIEWS, I sat down with two more stars of this amazing film. Rob Morgan plays James Sr., the father of Jimmie played by Jimmie Fails and Tichina Arnold who plays Jimmie’s aunt Wanda. And away we go!
Dean on the Scene with an exclusive interview with the director and star of the upcoming film “The Last Black Man in San Francisco”.

Man, I wish I still lived in LA and not this backwaters hole in Florida. It’s a nice backwaters hole, but nothing exciting happens in Jacksonville. Can I put a sad face emoji in a news article? Is that professional?
MTV Movie and TV Awards has announced their performance line up and I’ll admit I don’t know who most of these people are, but I love Macklemore and would consider flying out to LA just to get a chance to meet and talk to him. Not to mention the Red Carpet will probably be insane. Even though I can’t be there, unless MTV pays for me (like that will happen), I plan on having someone out there repping the EM machine. Hosted by “Shazam!” star Zachary Levi, the MTV Movie & TV Awards air Monday, June 17 at 9:00 PM ET/PT. Full press release below.
