I was reading another forum where people were talking about movies on sale, and 'Heat' was one of them, and it got me thinking of what would be an amazing double feature by the same director (Michael Mann).
'Heat'/'Thief' would work wonderfully together. They're both essentially the same plot, only 'Heat' is more action-packed with a lot more characters, but seeing the blue, neon streets of 'Thief' with a wonderful soundtrack by Tangerine Dream as James Caan's character tries to make a life for himself, just to finish it and turn to 'Heat' where we can't help but root for the good and bad guys, would make for one exciting time. I'm going to have to try this now.
@Creasy I remember there was a time when I thought, 'Wouldn't it be epic to see Pacino and De Niro in a film together?!'- and then I discovered Heat. Wow, what an awesome film. Granted, I only saw it once, maybe 10 years ago, so I must get to watching it again sometime soon. I haven't seen Thief, I'll add it to the list.
Speaking of Pacino and De Niro, you should keep their screen appearance together on 'Heat,' and please don't ever watch the steaming pile of feces that is 'Righteous Kill.'
Do not expect anything as brilliant as 2001(Peter Hyams was no Stanley Kubrick), but still an enjoyable film and Scheider is good in it.
When will we see 2061 on the screen?
Now that I have the Extended Trilogy, I'm going to pick a day this week, just so I can get up super early and watch all three in a row.
If you have managed a Bond marathon? That will be a piece of cake! ;)
I continuously try to get up early enough to do this trilogy marathon, but my body won't let me. Now I'm thinking I'll either have to watch two in one day, or watch all three very late through the night.
:-)) Well ? It's always the risk of constant interuptions during the day? At night maybe your best bet? But obviously do not have to be anywhere the following day? ;)
I think you need to see 'Commando,' as well. ;-)
Oh, I like that idea a lot! The first 'Beverly Hills Cop' is fantastic. I don't like the second as much, but the third holds a special place to me because I watched it so damn much when I was young.
It's worth noting, for all the complaining about the amount of time between Indy films, the break here will be even longer.
Is that just a placeholder? I thought the film was actually gearing up and making progress, but I haven't heard anything in a few months. Well, let us hope, then, that it isn't as big of a disappointment as 'Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull' was. ;-)
I haven't heard anything about a new James Bond film in a while but that doesn't mean it isn't happening! :)
Also, I agree, get ready to be let down. Again.
Well, Bond is a successful 50-year plus series, much different than a sequel to a couple of movies from roughly 20 years ago. :-) However, I won't complain when it gears up, would love to see more Foley, especially if Rosewood and Taggert return.
Monty Python and The Holy Grail (My favourite Comedy of all time)
Monty Python's Life Of Brian (My second favourite Comedy of all time)
Despite being released after Sin City, I'd watch The Spirit first, as it is the lesser quality of the two films. Granted, it has some memorable scenes, such as the scene at the swampland, the Octopus/his lair, and the smashing Eva Mendes photocopying her butt. However, Sin City really is the film to end on. In fact, it's probably my favourite film of 2005. You could swap out Spirit and pair Sin City with 300 (2007), as the three films were considered by some as a trio of sorts, until the latter two received sequels.
