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.

    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
