Heat (1995)

deniro-in-heat

I don’t know how but I missed this movie up til now. Maybe it didn’t too well at the box-office, but has a pretty good storyline and a big cast. I have said it before, I really don’t know what good acting is. Maybe it’s this -> ^ when Robert De Niro does his brief side-glance thing. (This can also be seen Goodfellas). Anyway, very different from the Miami Vice TV series that Michael Mann is best known for, featuring De Niro as the criminal, Al Pacino as the cop and a whole bunch of other people including Val Kilmer and Henry Rollins.

The only reason I came across this film is that one of the heists set ups gets borrowed and drafted into the upcoming Grand Theft Auto 5 which’ll be released this year.

I’ve really been meaning to try and get around to putting a bit of individuality into this wordpress template layout but the more push-button they make them, the harder they are to modify and my html skills aren’t what they used to be.

Also, probably like most weblogs, I get the odd hand-delivered attempt at slipping some SPAM through the net (how miserable must these people’s lives be, finding weblogs to cut n’ paste spam into each day?) and most of them are lame-o nonsense but I have to note the below example as one that made me pause for a second, thinking it might’ve been a real commenter.

Hi! I understand this is kind of off-topic but I had to ask.

Does managing a well-established website like yours take
a large amount of work? I’m completely new to running a blog but I do write in my diary on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I can
share my experience and feelings online. Please let me
know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
Thankyou!

Nice social-engineering you got going there. Close but no raisin toast.

  1. re spam and comment spam: it the to complete MINDLESSNESS of it all that aggravates me. and don’t get me started on email spam from tinpot little african nationals with subject lines in caps demanding an urgent response.

    re Heat: if it bombed that wasn’t my fault. I paid full admission opening week. the confrontation night-time runway scene was supposed to be remarkable, but I just kept thinking what a wifebasher Al is.

  2. yet another reason why I don’t like to find out what actors are doing in real life. But I can say that I could see that De Niro was a much better actor than pacino in this one. And Val Kilmer did a relatively good job considering he’s stuck looking like the young jim morrison forever now.
