Taking a slightly different approach, but in keeping with the thread title.

The bank robbery and street shootout scene in "Heat".



The scene has been widely regarded as one of the most realistic portrayals of small unit tactics & technique. It has eportedly been used to train U.S. Marines.

Bonus: Behind the scenes



I see that PM listed DeNiro in this movie in his O.P. I think the whole scene deserves a nod. smile

Andy McNab directed those scenes from what I have read.

If there is a bank robbery/heist scene in a movie that is better than the one in "Heat" then I have not seen it yet.

You roused my interest so I looked him up and read a short bio. It's stunning to me how his life turned out when you consider the terrible circumstances of his early life!

Doc Holliday is Val Kilmer’s character in «Tombstone»


In all my years I've never seen the like. It has to be more than a hundred sea miles and he brings us up on his tail. That's seamanship, Mr. Pullings. My God, that's seamanship!

Have not seen Tombstone. I think it came on TV one time back when we watch free TV and there were free movies at night and only the privilege lucky folks had cable TV with all day movie channels

That was either a joke, or you were trying to see who would catch that!

I cant come up with 10 on the spot, but I will add some to the thread as I think of them.

in no particular order:
Toshiro Mifune-- High and Low
Henry Fonda -- On Golden Pond, The Wrong Man and many others.
Heath Ledger -- Dark Knight. Many have been called but there can be only one Joker.
Al Pacino -- The Godfather I, II, III
Marlon Brando -- On The Waterfront
Daniel Day Lewis -- There will be Blood

Read both, and very glad I did. Bad ass dudes. Certainly helped me form my HELL NO opinion on Iraq, the sequel. One of the dumbest moves, from one of the dumbest Presidents in America's history.
