The Sting

Very good movie. Fast paced, never boring and with a great twist at the end!

  • I really liked the opening credits and the title cards that were used throughout, I thought it was good to let the audience in on the stages of a con. However, the opening titles with the cast made it feel like it was a TV show rather than a film, I didn’t really like that.
  • Ergh, I hate seeing such corrupt policemen! I love that the police are the bad guys in this film, rather than the conmen.
  • Bloody hell, Paul Newman was really skinny back then! Scrawny little thing!
  • “He’s not as tough as he looks.” “Neither are we.” I loved this script!
  • I love all the card tricks. This film has made me want to learn poker, though I know I’d be awful because I’m constantly asking people about the rules which ruins the game most of the time!
  • I loved that Gondorf [Newman] decided to go for the drunk approach; it puts the other players in false security. Also there was some good comedy in there, like the way he looked at his cards so close to his chest. Brad Pitt did it in Mr and Mrs Smith, too.
  • The FBI wear funny straw hats! Then they blackmail Hooker [Redford]! How very un-FBI of them!
  • Awwww if Hooker had told Gondorf, he’d totally understand! Grrrr!!
  • Ooooooooooooh. Gah! That was a twist that I should of seen coming!! Its almost like they coned the audience as well!
  • Very good, I really liked it!

    106/212 [officially half way through my challenge!!!]
