    Mississippi Grind, wow

    Unfortunately this is a Direct TV exclusive right now
    But great cast, plot, writing
    Still as dark as Rounders, but far from predictable right to the end
    Its primarily a poker movie again, but has something for slots, roulette, BJ and Dice players

    9.0/10

    That's a bold statement, Rounders is pretty solid... But, I trust a fellow VMB'er.

    Problem is, not having Directv strikes again!

    Its $12.99 for a freaking 3 day rental...but I've watched it 3 times now
    Im sure it'll be on Netflix or Amazon soon

    Coming from Frank67, that is a solid recommendation. I'll look for it.

    I thought it was a solid movie, the insights of a gambler on what they will do,( anything ), to feel the rush. Highly recommend

    I remember hearing about this film a few months back and that it was getting very good reviews on the festival circuit. What little I heard described it more as a road movie than a gambling movie (and that's not a bad thing). I think its getting an art house release this fall. So if you're town has any art house theaters, keep an eye out for it
