My GF and I were discussing movies las night when Heat, one of my favorites, came up. She said it was the only movie she left without finishing. Any ideas?

The movie is too long for most people. Most people are addicted to the non stop action that hoolywood feeds them. My dad could not watch it.

"Heat" sucks. The action scenes are awesome, but the movie sucks. Just like everything Michael Mann has ever done. "Miami Vice" sucked, but it had cool cars, great music choreography, and and a couple of great shootout scenes. "Band of the Hand" , uhh well,[puke] "Last of the Mohicans", or "Mohican Vice" crappy, over blown ,over produced tripe. But some awesome [s]Revolutionary War[/s] French/Indian War battle scenes.(thx,PSYWAR1-0) Always the same format.

... I dunno why, but every time I'm surfing and come across [b]Heat[/b], I always stop there. ... Actually, I learn and understand just a little more each time I watch it. ... Every character is so authentic to me. ... That said, my last GF hated it as well. She hated me logging on to this site. She's not around any longer.

What I liked about Miami Vice was Uncle TED kicked Sonnys ass and blew his car slam the fuck up....and there was Glenn Fry in the hanger gittin down on the guitar.....both way cool scenes....jmo not ment to jack the thread I love Heat as much as the next guy but its about 30 min to long...and not enuff gunfire it needed some good T&A in it..

Michael Mann directing. Pacino DeNiro Killmore Sizemore Voight Automatic weapons. If that isnt a combination for one of the greatest movies of all time I dont know what is.

A SWAG but I'd say "Uncle Ted" could be Nugent. After checking [url]www.imdb.com[/url] I see that Ted Nugent was in episode #2.13

Nuge was in Miami vice? cool I wonder why?

How gives a hoot about De Niro, Sizemore, and Voight? This movie has Ashley Judd, weapons, Ashley Judd, great shootouts, and Ashley Judd. Oh, did I mention Ashley Judd?

Probably for the same reasons Bruce Willis and Phil Collins were on it. Probably the best show of the 80s. nosack may not have liked it but it was still way better than Dynasty and all the other bullshit people were watching in the 80s. And the one with Bruce Willis as the arms dealer was fucking awesome. M60 in the back of the van and squirrly dealers in a deal gone bad. [:D]

... It's TNT I believe still play [b]Miami Vice[/b] reruns. Every now and then I'll catch an episode. Takes me back.

I love HEAT, all of it although I do understand some parts are a bit slow for alot of people. But if you're into it the characters are perfect, the actors great, and of course the shootouts are entertaining even after the 50th viewing. One of my favorite movies all around, not just a good shootout... But Magnum P.I. was definitely the best show of the 80s, Miami Vice lags well behind...

Heat is not one of my favorite movies. Great shootout scenes, concur on the Ashly Judd, but I freakin hate Pacino and that whole story line with his wife and kid. Whole thing could have been left on the editing room floor. That said, I loved Miami Vice, especially the first couple years as the show had a really dark feel to it. I also liked Mann's version of Red Dragon, Manhunter.

Um LOTM is set in the French and Indian War, not the Rev War that happened later.

na, the best scene is when he comes home to a guy "ballin" his wife and yells at him about watchin his TV...
Link Posted: 6/22/2003 1:17:39 AM EDT
I loved that whole movie. Everything about it, from the first time I saw it in the theatres winter 1995/1996. Had dinner with the guy who played "TV man", the homeless guy who witnessed the first score, 3 months later. Christian biker dude.

I would agree that Magnum was the best show followed closely by Simon and Simon. BTW my GF has too many good qualities to dump.
Link Posted: 6/22/2003 1:09:36 PM EDT
Hey, don't forget The Fall Guy. Oh yeah, Heat rules.

Oh, I love "Miami Vice", then and now, and I watched "Heat" again early this morning, but its still pretentious crap.[:D]

While I was entertained by "Miami Vice," I'd skip it to watch "Magnum, PI" in a heartbeat. BTW, I know a guy who was one of the stars of "Miami Vice." He lives a few miles from me. He also starred in "First Blood." Kind of a loud mouth, but other than that he's a good guy. Verrrry conservative.
