There have been countless movies made about poker; there’s a machine in Hollywood just making movies about the game and its players. Poker tournaments are now on par with major sporting events, it’s a part of the mainstream now more than ever. We cheer for the heroes and even the degenerates from time to time; it’s a great game that can make for a great film. Here are my favorite movies to feature the game, sound off in the comments below and share your own.
I always recommend this movie to my guy friends saying it’s ‘the best guy movie ever made’, but don’t let that rattle you ladies, it’s a great movie for you too, for everyone in fact. So well paced, like a quick game of black jack, this movie keeps you guessing right until the very end. Paul Newman and Robert Redford are back together again (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid) and don’t miss a beat. It’s one of cinema’s most beloved heist movies, and for good reason. The film is so good-natured, so obviously aware of everything it’s up to I can’t help but love it more every time.
