    It's a secret masterpiece despite wooden/unconvincing supporting performances.  A visual feast with a classic score and a great tribute to early film.

    A thought that just occurred to me:
     
    Does the practice of naming sequels like "[title of first story] 2" (or II) actually maybe derive from calling the 1939-1945 war World War 2?  Like calling it WWII had an unintended effect of introducing that?  I can't think of any sequels in literature, theater, or film from before the war that were titled this way....

    Fun fact: Mann redubbed the shootout sequence, but after hearing it, he decided that it didn't work. He preferred all the ambient sound from the original footage, so that's what we hear, in the film.
    Listening to it on a 5.1 system, you get all the wonderful reverb of the bullet hits.
    It's a masterful sequence to watch, and to listen to.

    HEAT is a genuine classic, and among the greatest films in recent memory.
    Everything, from writing and performances, to editing, music, cinematography, and direction, are all first class.
    It's two hours and fifty minutes, but it doesn't feel like it. It's not a slog, by any standard. Rather, it's involving, and thrilling, and it generates a lot of sympathy for both sides (except, of course, for Waingro, because he's a scum-bag asshole).
    The ending, at LAX, is unbearably moving.
    A modern masterpiece.

    Geez, Louise, can't someone make a good movie about nice people, instead of fleecing the general public out of so much money, with murder, death, casual destruction, horror, violence, serial killers, slackers, misfits, disturbed children, endless MCU/DCEU, remakes, or rinsing heritage franchises?

    All congrats on your honourary knighthood, dude!
    As you haven't given a single public performance of your own music in the UK, since July 4th, 1998, perhaps you could use getting done by Charlie boy, to plan a concert, with the L.S.O., at, either, Barbican, or the Royal Albert Hall?
    Wha' d'ya say?

    The transition between the scenes where Robbins get kissed by Mermaids, then the next one where he's already out of the sea, being lifted in a giant Clam.
     
    Even the music seems to say: eew, ok, that was it!

    I love this score. It's very dear to my heart. And contrary to a lot of other people I think he 100% deserved that Oscar. It's incredible. He get's so much emotion out of Ellie's Theme.
    And the action music in "Escape From Muntz Mountain", "The Small Mailman Returns" & "Seizing The Spirit Of Adventure" is some of the most dynamic action music he's written I feel

    So, Alan Rickman thought that the score for HARRY POTTER AND THE PHILOSOPHER'S STONE was "hideous", did he?
    He's wrong.
