So.... I was talking to my friend about this earlier. What's your favorite heist movie?
Bottle Rocket or Lock, Stock come to mind.
Also liked Before the Devil Knows You're Dead a lot.
I dont know if this counts, but the first movie that popped into my head was Sneakers
Reservoir Dogs. Duh.
And Snatch, if it counts. Not sure it does, since it's more about gangsters in general. That would open up the door to too many gangster movies we all know and love.
That does count, I love that movie. We were just talking about heist movies and he came up with one and I came up with another, so I want to get some thoughts from you guys.
Oh, and The Ladykillers, the Coen Brothers one. It's so overlooked that even I forgot about it.
The first one that popped into mind was The Italian Job, the original.
Yea my pick is definitely Snatch. I think it does count b/c it revolves around who is getting the Diamond. Can't argue w/Res Dogs. I still love the Clooney / Pitt Oceans's 11. Dog Day Afternoon is another great one.
It's weird. I can quote that movie for minutes, without repeating myself, but I couldn't tell you the basics of the plot. I know there's a plane ride at the beginning, something about a guy's finger, and people getting fed to the pigs. Other than that, I just pay attention to the jokes when I watch it.
The best heist film ever made IMO. The Heist sequence itself is one of the best heist scenes ever put on film.
Ocean's Eleven. The new one. Yeah, I said it.
Le Cercle Rouge
The Friends of Eddie Coyle
Bob Le Flambeur
Le deuxième souffle
Love Jean Pierre Melville.
I'm not going to name mine cause I want to see if anyone else does. And I also want to see if anyone else names his. It's just a who's right sort of thing. As of now, neither of us are winning.
Hmm... Good heist movies? I dunno... Ronin?
If you count coning a gullible Woman out of Thousands a heist
Was Killing Zoe any good? I watched it once a long time ago and frankly I don't remember.
Ooooh! I forgot about Ronin. I just can't believe that no one has mentioned my choice.
Yea I did too so no shame. It's miles better than the original. Pitt / Cheedle / Mac / Gould all hilarious. I think Casey Affleck and Scott Caan are great in all 3.
No love for the Score?
The Town or Heat?
