Subtitle American Heist
The Norco robbery was an odd one from its very beginning. The perpetrators, led by two park maintenance workers and small-time pot dealers named George Smith and Christopher Harven, had uncommon motivations for the crime. As Houlahan writes, "They were not drug addicts desperate for their next fix, [or] a ring of thieves looking to pull a string of heists. ... The two men behind the Norco bank robbery believed that America was on the verge of a catastrophe of biblical proportions, one in which only the well armed and well prepared would survive."

The two men convinced Harven's brother, Russell, to join the heist, along with two brothers named Billy and Manny Delgado. The plan that Smith hatched was half-baked, to say the least, "replete with grandiosity, self-righteousness, and confidence that he knew more than everyone around him." It was doomed from the start: Smith elected to rob the bank where he was a customer, one which also happened to be several miles away from the nearest freeway.
The robbers had hoped that by planting a diversion bomb, set to go off on the other side of Norco just before the heist, the police would be slow to respond. But the bomb was extinguished by a civilian who happened to be driving by, and the gang of five had the misfortune of robbing the bank right when a police officer happened to be nearby. When they left the bank, a shootout ensued, wounding an officer and killing Billy Delgado, who had been designated the getaway driver.

Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves (subtitle spelled Honour Among Thieves in the United Kingdom and Ireland) is a 2023 American fantasy heist action comedy film directed by Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley, who cowrote the screenplay with Michael Gilio from a story by Chris McKay and Gilio. Based on the tabletop role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons, it is set in the Forgotten Realms campaign setting and has no connections to the film trilogy released between 2000 and 2012. The film stars Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Regé-Jean Page, Justice Smith, Sophia Lillis, and Hugh Grant.
By January 2020, Goldstein and Daley announced that they had co-written a new draft of the script. Ultimately, Daley, Goldstein, and Gilio received screenplay credit, while McKay and Gilio received story credit. Goldstein stated that "ours is a movie that doesn't take itself with great seriousness, but it's never a spoof. It honors the world of D&D and celebrates it but, hopefully, it gives the audience an engaging and fun ride". Daley commented that the film's influences include The Princess Bride, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, The Lord of the Rings, and Indiana Jones, with the Indiana Jones structure evocating both a "dungeon crawl" and the heist film genre that they wanted to draw on. Daley highlighted that the heist genre is familiar to the audience, which provides the framework for the "uninitiated" so that "they understand what our characters are setting out to do without being overwhelmed by lore or proper nouns". Daley also wanted the film to be accessible for those unfamiliar with the fantasy genre. The Austin Chronicle highlighted "since the basis of most tabletop campaigns is a group of strangers coming together to complete a job, the thematic parallels between heist movies and fantasy roleplaying campaigns offer a shared language for newcomers".
According to court documents, Alaumary and his coconspirators used business email compromise schemes, ATM cash-outs and bank cyber-heists to steal money from victims and then launder the money through bank accounts and digital currency. He previously pleaded guilty in the Southern District of Georgia in two money laundering cases.
Millennials, born between 1981 and 1996, were also more likely (53%) to use the feature than the average respondent. But older people, such as Gen X and Baby Boomers, were the groups least likely to frequently use subtitles.
The most common reasons for having subtitles were that the audio is muddled (72%) or the accent is difficult to understand (61%). Another 29% said they prefer to watch content at home quietly with subtitles on so as not to disturb roommates or family.
The popularity of streaming services also seems to encourage the use of subtitles, as the survey found that 62% of Americans use subtitles more on streaming services than on regular TV. The respondents said Netflix had the best subtitles feature, followed by Amazon Prime and Hulu as the best in streaming.
"Whether this is due to changing director taste or the limits of home entertainment systems, we wanted to know whether it had anything to do with the frequency of subtitles use in American homes," Preply said in its report.
A year after the international hit Money Heist (La Casa de Papel) ended, a Korean spin on the hi-tech Robin Hood story is coming to Netflix. In Money Heist: Korea - Joint Economic Area, fans will see a version of the original show's epic heist taking place in the same fictional universe, where North and South Korea are on the brink of reunification after 80 years. A new Professor (Yoo Ji-tae) has a meticulous plan to steal four trillion won ($3 billion) of the new unified currency straight from the Korea Unified Mint, before a joint police taskforce can stop him.
The crew of thieves have the same names and roles as the original show, but with new personalities and backstories that complicate the similar, yet very different, heist. Here's what we know about the stacked cast of Money Heist: Korea, which includes up-and-coming stars, a popular variety show personality, and one of the standout actors from Squid Game.
The Professor is the brains of the heist, who gathered the team of thieves together and spent years thinking of every possible scenario for the revolutionary robbery. He leads the team from outside the mint, and gives them orders based on his own strict principles.
Tokyo grew up in North Korea and served in the army before moving to South Korea hoping to start a better life. After being scammed and discriminated against, the young woman is on the verge of giving up when the Professor asks her to join the heist.
Salamander (Amazon; subtitles): I watched this Belgian thriller series quite a while ago, but it always stayed with me. A flashy robbery leads an unconventional detective into a rarefied terrain populated by some frighteningly powerful and duplicitous characters.
Enchanted with the story, I realized that my copy of The Feather Thief sat unread on my bookshelves. I immediately searched for it, cracked it open and began to read the sometimes crazy, always tragic, story of a heist of prized and invaluable bird feathers. Author Kirk Wallace Johnson stumbled upon the story of this feather heist while he was fly-fishing in New Mexico.

Based on actual events, AMERICAN ANIMALS follows Warren Lipka (Evan Peters) and Spencer Reinhard (Barry Keoghan) as they drift through their suburban life. Then Spencer discovers the rare book room at Transylvania University in Kentucky, where priceless copies of a Darwin edition and Audubon's Birds of America are kept. The friends begin to entertain a "what if" idea of stealing the books; over time, their notion turns more and more into an actual plan, complete with charts and disguises. They enlist two others, Eric (Jared Abrahamson) and Chas (Blake Jenner), and a date is set. Despite their fantasies of how the theft is going to go -- fueled by a well-studied stack of heist movies -- the actual day happens quite differently.
For this true-crime movie, writer/director Bart Layton attempts a new angle and succeeds. American Animals is narrated by the heist's actual participants, and it's brilliantly edited, bringing fascinating layers to the proceedings. Layton's previous movie, the documentary The Imposter, asked pointed questions about perception, acceptance, and truth, and he continues with those themes here (albeit in a more crowd-pleasing way). Not only does American Animals allow for its interviewees to sometimes contradict one another, it occasionally drops them right into the action along with the actors who are playing them to further underline possible inconsistencies in memory and storytelling. (The movie claims that it's not "based on" a true story; it is a true story.)
Even better are the imagined victories, the scenes that feel just like traditional heist movies, but with an outsider's knowledge; the scenes play against the characters' knowledge and the viewers' knowledge in fascinatingly different ways. American Animals probably wouldn't have worked if not for the fine performances, especially by the nuanced, vulnerable Keoghan (who was disturbingly good in The Killing of a Sacred Deer) and Ann Dowd, who brings great fear and hurt to her role as librarian Betty Jean Gooch (the real Ms. Gooch also appears as herself). The film eventually captures the horrible weight of committing a crime. In this way, American Animals isn't just highly entertaining, but it also provides food for thought. 041b061a72
