This round’s “Netflix Roulette” reminds us that this theme provides more just-missed-it movies than big hits or entertaining dreck. An indie rock journalist (played by a slumming-it Toni Collette) is tasked with finding her ex, an elusive musician who released a massively influential album and then disappeared. Join Brett, David, and Nicole as they try to figure out which storyline is supposed to be most important, how Thomas Haden Church and Oliver Platt got talked into showing up, and why we couldn’t have just watched “Eddie and the Cruisers” instead.

Next week is Future Classics! The movie? Brett’s pick is the 007 potential-classic, “Skyfall.”

Here’s a link to the article David mentions on Johnny Depp toward the end of the episode.
