Heat was absolutely fantastic with excellent performances all around, lovely cinematography, a beautiful and haunting score from Terje Rypdal, and featuring one of the fiercest shootouts this side of John Woo. That film was a modern classic in the truest sense, thus it came as no surprise to me that the Academy completely ignored it.
How I yearn for the days when Michael Mann was out making awesome movies like this one and "Last of the Mohicans".
I'm really digging this article, because I am a huge fan of Punk and I hold nothing but contempt for that "musician" Chris Brown.
Speaking as a lifelong fan of pro-wrestling, I honestly consider Punk one of the very best of his generation of wrestlers. For all that he has accomplished in the ring, I hold a ton of respect for him. Brown on the other hand is a bane on the music industry along the lines of Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj, and is more remembered for slapping around his then girlfriend Rihanna then for any of his records. To hear that Punk gave Chris a verbal smackdown of grandiose proportions of which there is no true comeback to (He IS a woman-beater) to me is pure gold.
David Crosby is pro-2nd Amendment? Wow, didn't see that coming.
I am a big fan of certain HBO programming (Sopranos, Rome, and Deadwood are quite sublime), but with garbage like Bill Maher, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and the exquisite little inconvenience featured in this article, it makes it very difficult to stay that way. I'm better off skipping most of the programming all together, and just stick to catching the good stuff when it hits dvd.
