In this Movie-Go-Round Netflix Roulette, we got our first Netflix Original movie – The Polka King. It was a biopic, and there was a lot of good polka music, and Jack Black and Jenny Slate were in it. Guests Ericca Long and Cole Roulain of The Magic Lantern podcast joined Brett, David, and Nicole in watching it for you. We all dug deep into pertinent questions such as: Why did we think this was released directly to Netflix? Does the movie try to do too much? Not enough? Has the subject actually learned anything by the end of the movie? Did any of us go insane listening to two hours of Jack Black’s Polish accent? Join us and find out!
Next week we’re watching Nicole’s pick for a Future Classic, 2008’s The Dark Knight.
