I was the same with my list. At the start I couldn't think of 20, but once I got started I couldn't stop thinking of more movies to put on my list.

We'll have to go get a beer at Upland sometime. Did they break out their Bourbon Barrel stout yet??

see I dunno.... Rounders was alot more dark/gritty and serious. PJ's was a classic for me in college because my buddies and I would go to "Q's" alot in Bloomington (sadly, no longer in business) and play these little mind games on people. But, I really love this movie because even though there are big names in it, it still managed to fly under the radar of a lot of folks. Makes it sort of th "diamond in the rough" of my movie collection.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 13, 2012 11:19:31 AM PST
Very much so....

I also liked Rounders....

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 13, 2012 11:18:14 AM PST
I remember watching Poolhalll Junkies in high school. It was pretty good but it reminded me a heckuva lot of Rounders.

Nice to see Poolhall Junkies...I've seen it a couple of times....

Love the "I'm a millionaire" quote from Walken

I'm taking the hipster route and saying that you wouldn't have heard of them. And if you have, then they're no longer on my list.
