Mobsters and criminals have always used the internet to their advantage. Ever since the internet was created, we have had an influx of criminal activity, and the Darknet has been a haven for the morally ambiguous. So many clandestine goings on happen online, and this has only increased in the last five to ten years. The thing is that you could argue it’s almost become easier for criminals these days as well.
TV is considered by many to be the ultimate medium. It’s the perfect way to tell a story and explore characters over numerous hours and seasons. There is much broader scope for television than there is in movies, and this is one of the reasons TV has made such a resurgence. In fact, many people feel we are living in a golden age of television again, and it’s difficult to argue.
Mobster movies are brilliant. For two hours or so we can sit there and envelope ourselves in the thrill of spending money, we don’t have, killing the bad guys (most of the time), drinking too much alcohol with seemingly no effect and partaking in some car chases too.

Movies are a great way of telling stories, and understanding the history behind important events. It’s fair to say that casinos and Las Vegas are a huge part of the history of the United States, and that’s why there are a lot of films made about them. In fact, some of the best films ever made are gangster movies, and you definitely need to check some of these out.
The internet has been a marvellous invention for everybody. It has permitted people to make new friends and get in touch with old friends. It has revolutionised how we do business, shop, bank and play games. The opportunity to gamble has gone hand in hand with the opportunities for online crime.
Everybody knows that any film “inspired by actual events” takes a fair amount of artistic license. The 1990s mob movie Casino starring Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Sharon Stone was a massive hit. Here, we look at the facts behind the fiction of the people, places and events.
Back in the Prohibition era, there was an American gangster who quickly rose to fame as one of the founders and the boss of Italian-American crime syndicate, Chicago Outfit. His name? Alphonse Gabriel Capone – better known as infamous American gangster, Al Capone.
