"Casino" is a problematic movie for me too. It both engages me...and then bores the crap out of me. A couple or three times Ive tried to watch to it....but just couldnt get through it to the end.

I like a movie that educates me on things like...how the casino business works. And how it worked at a particular time and place (Vegas in the Mob dominated days of decades past). And the characters ( who are basically just trying to earn a living like the rest of us) are a lot easier to relate to then say...the comic book superheroes in all of those boring impossible-to-relate-to Avenger movies. But I guess the movie is just too long.

I thought it was boring too.

I also do not like Avenger movies in general, though I thought Captain America: The Winter Soldier was good back when I watched it around 2014 or so. I'm not sure I'd like it in the current day, however.

I don't like musicals for the most part either, or martial arts movies.
