Let you know here and partners is getting ready to rain and it looked like people are going to be. Swimming in the streets again and the movies they're coming to. Are going to be swimming with cases this weekend. The but I you know that that's the phrase that people talk about with gangsters you can beat him in with this year you'll. Angle he's owned the faces you know all that Smart stuff. But we all do it it sort of movie movie cliches but there's not a cliche at call in the new movie called the drop. It's. Movies to new Brooklyn crime drama on storing Jane -- teeny from The Sopranos it's one of his last movies it's not -- Plan -- I was gonna say I think this is. Things got to be the last. No we never know what little -- the maple old you -- there but -- the big -- in this one he has. Part of the ball are over in Brooklyn. And as bartender. Played by Tom hardy. Did great actor he's -- an ensemble actor that is in a lot of movies like inception Dark -- Tinker tailor filtered by Tom -- he played the -- came in this movie that. He's everything that goes on and there -- date robbery comfortable war deplore happens to be funneling cash to local gangsters. And they find that that's the place could be due to money drop in the title of the movie did drop. So it's thought of the here is. Gangster ball our armed robbery at the gangster -- are so at one point things that it at each other and. On hardy's character innocent. We have to concede this right now and it's written screenplay but on the short story by did the Haney who wrote. Mystic River the book Mystic River and on -- eagle on two rate crime novels and stories. So -- the good background to it and it has most importantly great performances. The review written across the border saying even if you don't like the movies are -- to predictable. The performances are great so that would be a good option for people that we can cool -- other extreme talking about swimming. There's all in table two. -- still like the hard without you know there was that off until one. You haven't seen any five million dollars. It. That was before it got on dvds and on cable.
