Besides "The color of money" and "The Hustler" what are some good movies based around pool/billiards? I have heard about a title called "stickmen" but can't find a copy.

Stickmen (NZ!) is like "Lock, Stock and two smoking barrels", if you know that one. A fun young guys flick, not that much pool really, tho.

Pool Hall junkies is OK too. More pool content in that IIRC. It's been out on VHS/DVD for half a year or so here (in Northern Europe).

Then there's the old Coburn flick Baltimore bullet. Been a long time since I saw that, but I remember liking it. Not a very good movie, but fun with some trick shots thrown in there.

The Kiss shot or whatever (with W Goldberg) is full of dodo.

But what is this:

"Running Out"

IIRC that's Tony Watson the pro pool player in that.

I've heard of it. Don't know if anybody here has seen it.
