“There are three ways of doing things around here: the right way, the wrong way and upvoting your favourite De Niro movie…”
Robert De Niro’s birthday, Friday 17 August, all day, Sky Cinema Select/HD (CH 442/412) + also available in Sky Cinema on demand
OK, we’re paraprashing De Niro’s character Ace Rothstein from 1995’s Casino, but you get the idea. As a two-time Academy Award winner and the star of countless classics, he needs no introduction. And, amazingly, he turns 75 this coming Friday! (Personally, we don’t think he looks a day over 63.)
With that in mind, is there a better way to celebrate your birthday than unwrapping a few presents and flicking over to Sky Cinema Select to re-watch some of your best roles? Not for De Niro there isn’t.
And the best bit is that you, dear reader, can join in the celebrations too! Not only by tuning in to laugh, cry, or even cower in fear at the brilliantly eclectic mix of films on offer (such as Meet The Parents and Raging Bull) but also by casting your vote as to which is your favourite.
From a boxer at the top of his game to a grouchy former secret agent, it’s down to you to pick the De Niro role you think is worthy of the top spot. Just click on the voting button above your favourite to have your say...
