HEAVEN’S PRISONERS (1996) FOUR TOP HATS

In honor of tomorrow’s post, that I have been trying to write for two years, I present this oldie for the new generation of Most Beloveds (and when I use the term “new generation” – look at the old comments on this post, hardly any of those folks are around any longer : (((((((((((( ) :HP1

It’s mostly horror out here – in fact 98%, but every now and then we’ll dip our toes into something other – a comedy, maybe, a couple of Westerns, a handful of Sci-Fis – anything that fits my mood or my memories. Well – life hasn’t always been easy for me – I’ve made mistakes and fucked shit up, times have been hard and life was tough – and this came out during a very depressed time for me. Life was issuing out a bunch of Hard Times in 1996, and I watched this a LOT. Not that this is uplifting or anything, I just thought it was a good, solid movie that kept me entertained over and over and it kept me from being constantly depressed. Plus, let’s get the elephant out of the room: Teri Hatcher’s boobs.

HP2

Speaking of Teri Hatcher’s boobs, have I ever told you that my uncle in Southern California runs a HVAC business?  Well he does and he’s had several “celebrity” run ins (I’ve had a couple too – if you felt the burning desire to read about them, I tried to chronicle them HERE). Anyway, last year, my relatives were in town for Thanksgiving and we all went out to eat at this Mexican Food joint and my uncle got a call on his cell. It was Jeff Probst – who is known for being the host of the U.S. version of the TV show Survivor. What does that have to do with anything, you ask. Well – after that call I was all “how funny” and my uncle was all “he doesn’t know how to work his thermostat” and I was all “what a drip!!” and he was all “did I tell you I installed an A/C unit in Teri Hatcher’s house??” and I was all “wuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut  SHUT YO MOUTH!!!” and he was all “yup” and I was all “did you get a look at her boobs” and he was all “no” but my aunt was there so I don’t know if that was the truth or not.

HP6

Anyways, so a good looking Alec Baldwin plays ex-drunken, ex-detective Dave Robicheaux who is off the force, running a bait shop outside of New Orleans married to the comely, Kelly Lynch.

HP5

One day, a plane goes down in the water outside of where they live and he rescues a little Hispanic girl from the wreckage. Turns out that was a mob hit and soon enough the local toughs, up and including a corn rowed Eric Roberts, are after that girl trying to snuff out any survivors. Eventually, the mob puts a hit out on Robicheaux, but they kill his wife instead and things get dark and full of action from there.

HP7

That’s Mary Stuart Masterson there – she’s the local stripper with the big heart. I’ve always liked Baldwin (and Teri Hatcher’s boobs) and I thought this was a well done action-drama. I’ve probably seen this 100 times and it’s never let me down, even when I watched it the other day for the 101st sitting. And – as a plus – look how happy Baldwin was when this psychic told him I would be writing about his movie 17 years in the future!

HP7

Lastly – I want to state that I have always been AMAZED that people read my shit – I THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!! I say that because I want The Good and Most Beloved Reader to know that the next thing is not a plug for some company that’s paying me .03 cents for every unique hit I bring them – I would always rather my site be nice and cozy and friendly and warm – you know, like a Jack’s Bistro and not a Starbucks. So anyway, I found this the other month and then forgot about it until this last weekend and I thought I would share with other like minded Star Trek fans – check out these WICKED ASS Trek TOS shirts (The Avengers stuff is pretty cool too):

      Are they pretty good? I’ve always meant to get them and always forget… O_o

      I’ve got In the Electric Mist queued up for a re-watch – I liked it too but not as much as this one (if I remember correctly) Tommy Lee seemed too old for the part…

  1. I have always had a soft spot for Alec Baldwin and have seen most of his films, but sadly – not this one. I knew about it, but thanks for opening it for me. I mean, I personally think that his films are pretty decent, no matter what critics say. I can say I enjoyed ‘Malice’, ‘Getaway’, the kind of movies that got bad rating, but I thought were very entertaining.

      Hey thanks for the comment!

      Me too – I think he’s made some stinkers but I liked Malice and The Getaway too – and The Edge and he was fantastic in The Departed.

  2. I can almost see the internal struggle every time you watch this movie.

    “Fuck! Eric Roberts is in this!”
    “But so is Teri Hatcher’s boobs…”
    “But Eric Roberts!”
    “But Teri Hatcher’s boobs!”
    “But I can’t stand Eric Roberts!!!”
    “BOOBS!”

  3. You’ve been trying to write tomorrow’s post for two years?? Now I’m curious.
    I was wondering what an HVAC business had to do with Teri Hatcher’s boobs, haha! I like Baldwin as an actor too but I’m somewhat jaded by the feeling that he’s not a nice person in real life. That’s not founded in any fact whatsoever, I just get feelings about celebrities and the feeling from him is that he’s a bit of a know-it-all. You know the kind of person that goes to a dinner party and immediately asks what credentials you have? Where did you go to school, where do you work? And then they give you the slow, “Ohh…” if it wasn’t an impressive enough answer? That’s what I feel he’s like. But this movie sounds pretty decent. I shall give it a go (if I EVER get through my “To Watch” list, haha!)

  4. So after we last talked about this movie I went and got it. Skimmed through it for obvious reasons and remember watching it many years ago, but still haven’t had a proper sit-down yet. Don’t forget to find The Cool Suface for more ‘obvious reasons’. lol

  9. Eric! I liked this post a lot, the same as all your posts. I hope that tornado has passed you safely by. The craziest weather we tend to get in England is the odd flood, unseasonably cold and rainy summers or very occasionally, a hurricane.

    This film seems vaguely familiar. I feel like it must have been on itv (cheap commercial channel here) late at night.
