    Heat 1995

    ★★★★ Rewatched 28 Mar, 2015

    A bloated action movie with numerous flaws, yet, for some reason, I enjoy watching repeatedly.

    Since seeing this movie, I have never been able to hear Stealers Wheel's "Stuck in the Middle With You" without thinking of Michael Madsen and his dance as he tortured a captured policeman.

    I watched this movie knowing nothing about it one night and I was hooked. Tarantino has a gift for dialogue like none other. I love the pop culture references, the snappiness of the exchanges and yes the profanity. The soundtrack for the movie was perfect, the juxtaposition…
