Guns, Girls and Gambling

 
 
Trivia question:  What movie features Christian Slater, Gary Oldman, and Elvis?  Trick Question. 'True Romance' is no longer the sole answer.  (And if you remove Oldman, you can even add '3000 Miles to Graceland' as a correct response.)  Welcome to 'Guns, Girls and Gambling', the latest quirky, violent crime film to go straight to DVD.  Besides the aforementioned guns, girls, and gambling, you can expect cowboys, indians, mexican standoffs, and five Elvises all in pursuit of a McGuffin.  It's clearly inspired by, but in no way in the same league as a Tarantino, Guy Ritchie, or Martin McDonough film.  But if you're a fan of the quirky crime genre and enjoy films like '2 Days in the Valley', 'Brick', or 'Lucky Number Slevin', then it's a reasonably enjoyable watch.  It's now available on VOD, DVD, and Blu-Ray.
