Hooray!

I have just discovered that RobertaX has not seen Heat. We need to hook up a VCR, since my copy is in that recently-anachronized format, but I'm pretty stoked about getting to watch it again, and with a first time viewer to boot. I wonder if she's seen Collateral?

"Attack of the Killer Tomatoes"? "Evil Dead 2"? Anything from the masters of Horror Series but especially "Cigarette Burns" Or an anime fest of "Ghost in the Shell Stand alone Complex" "Fullmetal Alchemist" and "Inuyasha"? God I'm showing what a geek I am aren't I?

Jeezis!

Heat is one of my faves. DeNiro and Pacino in a cops and gangsters movie. What's not to like?

Note the bank scene and how they cover each other on the shootout/escape. Mann took that straight from a course he took at Gunsite, as I understand. And look at that sexy FNC that Pacino is using in that same bank scene as he drops Sizemore's character Neat.

The new Pacino/DeNiro movie looks like I'll have to see it in the theater, but what mystified me was the "together at last" ad tagline.

Huh?

Does the ad company promoting a Pacino/DeNiro crime movie not know about Heat?

Both outstanding flicks!

On the Collateral DVD, watch Cruise using live ammo at the L.A. County Sheriff's range, practicing for the "Yo, Homey! Is that my briefcase?" scene.

I was going to ask if she had seen "RONIN"? or how about "DAY OF THE GUN"?

So far, I've shown her Way of the Gun, Equilibrium, and Boondock Saints.

You're welcome to borrow our copy of Heat on DVD. We can bring it to the next blogmeet.

I've never seen Heat either.

Boondock Saints... man there's a movie I never mind watching.

I love to pop HEAT into the DVD-playing linux system I have on my armory bench for a long day of cleaning/reloading : ]

Come to Friday Night Steel and I'll loan you my DVD of Heat.

I guess I'll be different and say I thought Heat was boring except for about five minutes there near the end. Boring as hell. If it hadn't been for that one gunfight scene I knew was coming, I would have headed back to the lab to do some work and kill the boredom.

Ugh, I have to admit I thought Heat was boring and way too long.

Robert said...

Surely she has seen the Greatest Texan Western Ever Made: The Wild Bunch.

See if she's seen the original The Getaway. (No Country For Old Men wasn't the first movie to feature a small Texas town street shoot-out involving a man with a shotgun cleaning house.)

"...recently-anachronized format..."

Heh, mine's on Laser Disc.

I remember seeing Heat and thinking, "yeah right, a shootout in the street - never happen," then there was North Hollywood. . .
