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.

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 awesome at catching fish in the US. I leave Canada to those who are not so awesome at fishing.
    • I was at the fishing show & had talked with the Aqua Vu staff.  Their new HD cameras look amazing!  I thought the pictures on the AV760 was great, but these are super sharp. They also stated that you can view them clearly in the direct sun light.
    • The walleyes (current strong) I catch on Rainy fight harder than any bass I've ever caught. 
    • That's what happened when a mouse ran up Del's leg. He peed all over the carpet. 
    • cool info here....   http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/education_safety/safety/ice/ice_stats.pdf
    • Anyone fall thru the ice with a floating jacket or bibs? Any take on it? How about going thru WITHOUT floating jacket and pants? Any take on it? What if you fall in? What should you do if you fall through the ice? First, try not to panic. This may be easier said than done, unless you have worked out a survival plan in advance. Read through these steps so that you can be prepared. Don't remove your winter clothing. Heavy clothes won't drag you down, but instead can trap air to provide warmth and flotation. This is especially true with a snowmobile suit. Turn toward the direction you came. That’s probably the strongest ice. Place your hands and arms on the unbroken surface. This is where a pair of nails, sharpened screwdrivers or ice picks come in handy in
      providing the extra traction you need to pull yourself up onto the ice. Kick your feet and dig in your ice picks to work your way back onto the solid ice. If your clothes have trapped a lot of water, you may have to lift yourself partially out of the water on your elbows to let the water drain before starting forward. Lie flat on the ice once you are out and roll away from the hole to keep your weight spread out. This may help prevent you from breaking through again. Get to a warm, dry, sheltered area and re-warm yourself immediately. In moderate to severe cases of cold water hypothermia, you must seek medical attention. Cold blood trapped in your extremities can come rushing back to your heart after you begin to re-warm. The shock of the
      chilled blood may cause ventricular fibrillation leading to a heart attack and death! 
    • dont be surprised if ya catch a REB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well see their ya, go. Now fight that on a 26" rod. Can we both agree then that Walleye's can give up a little fight?
    • Here's a 12lber from this summer, though
