I saw "Heat" in the theatre when it first came out.  I liked it.

The one thing I didn't like was the "gimmicky" way they had De Niro 
and Pacino "reunited" because it was the first time they had ever 
appeared on film together, although they had been in the same film 
before ("Godfather II"). So, this was supposed to be the cool thing 
about "Heat" and I find that this distracted from the movie.

I've read both "Wiseguy" (upon which "Goodfellas" was based) 
and "Casino", both by Nicholas Pileggi. Pileggi appears prominently 
in both the "Casino" and "Goodfellas" DVD extras.
