I (Heart) Tough Guys

The good news is, there are new DVD releases this week of Heat and Get Shorty. I like tough guy movies, and these are two good ones.

Heat is a star studded heist film that Michael Mann helms in his glorious style. Pacino and DeNiro do some great work here. Well done good guy / bad guy story.

Get Shorty is full of action and clever dialogue, the cast is amazing. I always watch Hackman in awe. There's also a scene where DeVito descends a staircase oozing menace and presence. Can't wait for the follow-up film, Be Cool.
