Rounders The Movie And Now Possibly A Tv Show Too

Recommended Posts

Guardian article here tells of the possibilities of a Sin City TV show (nice) and a TV show based on Rounders (sweet!). Hope they do the wonderful game of poker justice just as they did the movie. If you haven't seen it I'd definatley recommend it to all poker players. Very realistic (no royal flush winning the all important game bullshit) and a good movie to boot. I got a very nice DVD in Virgin for about £6 and it was easily worth twice that. Its got some great commentary by Johnny Chan, Phil Hellmuth, Chris Moneymaker and Chris 'Jesus' Ferguson. Its great hearing these guys discuss poker life and the movie. There's also a great poker tips section where each of the pros share some top tips. There's also a silly Hold 'em game you can play on your DVD player but as you can probably guess its pretty basic.

Finally saw Rounders, and must say, I thought it was fantastic.

Damon was fine, Norton was sublime, and Turturro as good as usual. Malkovich was totally OTT, but in a fun way, and the whole thing just motored along nicely.

I didn't know it was by John Dahl until I saw the credits, but he is a decent director, and he did a fine job with it. Really shows the grimy side of professional poker.

Recommended to those who haven't seen it.
