Over the weekend I received the email above saying that “Rounders” was back on Netflix. Movies come and go on Netflix streaming every few months so I made sure to watch it right away. I actually wanted to watch “The Big Lebowski” which is no longer available as a streaming title but is only $5 on Amazon. It’s been a while since I’ve seen “Rounders” and I forgot how great of a movie it is. If you’re not familiar with “Rounders” here’s the quick IMDB plot.
A young man is a reformed gambler who must return to playing big stakes poker to help a friend pay off loan sharks.
That plot doesn’t sound awesome but the cast of characters is pretty great. Matt Damon and Edward Norton do a good job as the main characters but I forgot how great John Malkovich was as Teddy KGB and I totally forgot John Turturro as Joey Knish who’s a totally random great part of the movie. You can catch “Rounders” on Netflix now or just buy it for a few bucks. “Rounders” is only $8 at Amazon if you still watch DVD’s.
