Public Enemies

10 posts in this topic

I went to see it last night with my girlfriend. I have been waiting for it all spring and summer and it was worth the wait. This is a movie I can recommend for sure. Good action, good plot, good acting. The only thing I didn't like were a couple of scenes where the film makers used a bounce mount for the camera and it just didn't seem to fit. Other than that, it was great.

I’m looking forward to seeing this one!

I think Depp is one of the best actors of all time and for sure my favorite right now.

There was a good article in the Strib the other day about how Dilinger along with a lot of the big name gansters of the time resided in St. Paul. I guess the Police Chief in exchange for a small bribe and the agreement to not rob anything in MN provided a safe haven.

Very interesting.

Is it better than The Untouchables?

If anyone enjoys this stuff, especially the local area angle I would strongly recommend a book by Paul MacAbee (sp?) titled "John Dillinger Slept Here". Great book, and if you are familiar with St. Paul you can often picture the areas being described.

I'd like to see it when it comes here... It was filmed about 25 minutes from my home. I met one of the guys (Christian Bale) at an airport I was working at.

Dillinger and the Ma Barker gang had an agreement with the South St Paul police dept that they could hang out there as long as they didn't rob anything.

A few years later, they robbed the Stockyards bank on Concord street. Its been awhile since I lived there but at one time, one could go to the bank and on the wall of the bank, it was riddled with machine gun bullets and you could see the damage in the wall.

I love how America falls in love with some of these guys. From Jesse James to Babyface Nelson to Dillinger to Bonnie and Clyde, they are heroes. But if a guy robs one and gets caught- hes a scumbag for life.

Best bank robbery of all time was the one in LA when the guys had the fully auto machine guns and bullet proof vests on. Right out of the movie "Heat"

I saw it today. I enjoyed it but I doubt it will be on my list of top films at the end of the year. Johnny Depp has had a great career and has a wonderful screen presence. Without him in this film it would come and go without much of a buzz.

I'm anxious to see this one. That's for the review Tom.

    • Was clearing some downed trees from trails this morning. Checked a couple of trees and would you look at that. I didn't look very hard so I'm sure there are more, but of course have to head to work. Cold weather predicted after today though...  
    • Fished the Chip this weekend and found some success.  Lots of crappie action in select bay and bottle neck areas near warm water, timber and old cabbage.  Bobber and minnow was best, but anything was working.  We kept 10 smaller fish for the 3 of us and that was plenty of fish for us.  No need in keeping 25 fish (what a joke).  I wish the DNR would reduce the limit in WI!
    •   CM..that is a big "if" and pretty much the story of the series...good puck possession, lots of shots, few goals...and they have to find guys that can score against the "Allen's" of the world going forward...we aren't going to be playing against trash tenders come any playoff time.   Agree with your observation on the D zone coverage...way too much stick checking all over the ice by both forwards and Dmen...lack of putting body on opponents is either A  - pure laziness or  B - simply outmatched physically. This has to be addressed going foward.   Quite frankly I cannot think of one player that stepped up in the playoffs and played above their reg season...not one.    Haula seems to be a headcase...I don't think he is near as good as he thinks he is and tends to beat to his own drum IMO but we might be stuck with him. Ek will figure it out...playing in the World's now after playing in the Junior World's as well so he'll keep working on his game and be a good one soon IMO.   Will be interesting to hear Fletch's spin on things when he assesses things publicly soon but my guess is it will be "the sky is not falling...blah blah blah" same dump every year.  Sounds Like Leo is keeping him unfortunately...but he's made his own bed, now he has to sleep in it and there are not many GM's in the NHL that envy his postion IMO.  
    • So this is my first year playing Bassmasters Fantasy Fishing, What does the Own % mean and does it have anything to do with the points you would earn if that person is on your team?  Or is it a % of people that have picked that person.   Thanks
    • What are my choices?   I have a pump, well actually two pits with two pumps, one on each end of basement.   Probably half horse pumps?   I don't recall what they are.     So if I get one of those battery back up things, ideally I would want it to protect against both pump failure and power outage.  I figure power outage is maybe 12 to 24 hours except for some real disaster here in Rochester.   Pump failure could be days if I am out of town.   But if the battery charger can keep up with the average draw, it would be ok.   Pumping head is about 5 feet if that matters.  
    • If possible, get doctor to give you prednisone or an inhaled cortico-steroid like flovent or asminex (assuming you have prescription drug insurance)   Or the codine cough syrup if nothing else.  It is cheap.  Need a prescription, though
    • There also the 360 things by some companies.    
    • Hi all,   Any advice on purchasing a side image depthfinder? Worth it? Brand & model?   Thanks!   Ref  
    • Which size are you referring to? 
    • How much current do the battery pumps draw?
