  • Would Miami Vice have been a better movie if Mann had cast Josh Brolin and Benicio del Toro as Crockett and Tubbs?

    Would Any movie have been a better movie if Anyone had cast anyone other than Colin Farrell?

    There, I think that's what you meant to say.

    Mann's casting is usually very good but Farrell and Foxx weren't exactly De Niro and Pacino.



  • According to IMDb, Don Johnson was asked by Mann who he would pick to play Sonny Crockett. Johnson suggested Colin Farrell. Other actors considered were Cruise, Pitt and McConaughey.

    To be fair Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas weren't either

    Casino Royale (2006)

    CGI era kicks in. Daniel Craig takes advantage, opening action scene, woah, that thrilling hi-speed fancy dan camera shit never happened in the doofusland 70's instalments. Took Craig all of 30 minutes to supplant Connery as alltime #1 Bond. Fast, athletic, even got some wee beach muscles in there. Bit wooden with the sook scenes but fuck that shit anyway. 94% on RT. Timothy Dalton? GTFO. Timothy fucking Dalton. They may as well have had Stevie fucken Hawking as 007 instead of that charisma-bypassed vanilla git.

    Casino Royale is definitely the best Craig era Bond. QOS would be the worst. A boring uncharismatic villain trying to steal a water supply ? Fuck off, go and take over the world like a normal baddie.

    Silva from Skyfall is a very good villain but can't supplant Christopher Lee as Scaramanga.



  • @bovidae That's Johnson ensuring no one plays the part better than him.

    Like alot of 80s shows Miami Vice hasn't aged well. The A team, Magnum PI and Knight Rider are exactly the same. In fact just about all of them are except one....

    Can’t be long before the #metoo crowd lay into him for nailing Melanie Griffith when she was 14 and he was 22.

    With a name like Don Johnson I don't think that was anywhere near the first pussy he slayed in his time.



  • Mile 22 - Mark Wahlberg, Lauren Cohen, John Malkovich, Rhonda Rousey, Iko Uwais (of The Raid movies)

    Expected this to be good, was ok, seemed a bit messy overall, but watchable.

    Wahlberg is a intelligence operative, Cohen is on his team and they must escort Uwais to the US to get him to handover some high;y sensitive information.

  • @taniwharugby I expected it to be bad based on reviews but I quite liked it.

    Cheers to whichever mod fixed my cabbage forum-ing skills.



  • @nepia

    It's ::: on the line above and below your text

    I expected it to be good cos of the cast, I rarely read reviews, unless its a movie with nobody famous in it, but it sounds good, then I'll see what people say...then probably still watch it even if it gets slated.

    To me it moved at a good pace, but just seemed a bit all over.

    I don't watch previews or read reviews beforehand but for some reason I'd heard about this one before seeing it.

    Whalberg and Berg usually do good films together.



  • Looks good.



  • @jegga said in Re: Movie review thread...:

    Looks good but like a lot of reboot/remake type things also has the massive potential to be utterly shit, I only saw the first two, the trailer indicates hes been locked up for 40 years ? something isn't quite right there.....

    Also is old mate Michael Myers like Jason from Friday the 13th ie unkillable by normal means ? hes been shot, blown up, burnt etc and just seems to brush it off like nothing.

    Apparently it ignores all the films that have happened since the first one and this is a sequel to the first film. The new terminator film is supposed to be along the same lines , picking up after terminator 2 .



  • After the latest one I can confirm that Terminators plot has more holes than a golf course full of swiss cheese. Might be interesting to see how it is although I can only assume Linda Hamilton looks like hammered shit these days,

    Mind you, Bond ignored continuity pretty early in the piece with him meeting Blofeld in "You only live Twice" then them not recognising eachother in "On her majestys secret service "
