    Its a good point. DOTD is one of his better movies and it was written by James Gunn who is, basically, awesome.

    Coincidence? I think not.
    Weird coincidence that James Gunn comes up because last night i watched:

    Super -

    I enjoyed the hell out of this. It took the Kick Ass approach of "real" superheroes and made it even darker. The cast was great and it struck the right balance between comedy and touching bits. I have a huge crush on Ellen Page as well so that helped until she gets half her head blown off.

    I'm not ashamed to admit i teared up at the very end.

    9/10

    The Internship - 7/10

    A solid, above average comedy, with some laugh out loud scenes, especially when they go clubbing. Typical performances from Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, so if you like Weddning Crashers etc you will like this. Everyone in the cinema seemed to enjoy it as well.

    Bought the 'Miami Vice Unrated Director's Cut' recently (R1 blu ray, only from the US I think, not available in the UK [correct me if I'm wrong]).

    Huge fan of this film, extremely under-rated because most saw the cinematic version or just wanted to see Heat part 2 which this film most definitely is not.

    Good performances, but mostly well directed with some great locations. Great tension building that leads to the end.

    Terrific crime thriller, give it another go if you didn't like it before - but it has to be the Unrated Director's Cut.

    10/10

    Stoker 9/10 - Gripping and exceptionally well shot. Love Park Chan-wook films, made me feel kind of old realising that Oldboy was made ten years ago.

    Maniac 7/10 - took me by surprise this one, it's a really grim and nasty film but I really liked its first person gimmick and the soundtrack elevated it. It is pretty scary how well Elijah Wood does psychotic.

    It's no stretch for Elijah. He already looks like a serial killer.

    @vijay_UK is that the mythical 3-hour cut with the extended underground speedboat racing segment?

    For a birthday treat to myself last night I hired out a cinema, invited all my friends, and we watched...

    Scream.

    It was ace. It's one of my all-time favourites. It's a 10/10.

    Nice idea, how did that work? Could you choose anything or was it from a set list?

    I get your point about the extended speedboat scene as perhaps unnecessary; but it does flesh out the opening scenes the cinematic version does not do and makes it quite hard to understand what is going on. Also the dialogue seems to have been cleared up a bit, one of the criticism of the cinema version was that it was hard to understand what was being said.

    The Director's Cut doesn't add chunks of material throughout, it just adds certain scenes that help the movie. Imo it's one of those movies that works best sitting at home than at the cinema.

    @vijay_UK I haven't seen the 3-hour version myself -- but funnily enough was chatting to someone yesterday who's all-time favorite movie is Miami Vice who mentioned there were lots of speedboat shenanigans in the directors cut.

    There's supposed to be a fan-cut out there somewhere which boils the movie down to an hour and a half, which is apparently very entertaining!

    It hurts me to hear that, an hour and a half!

    I am certain people wanted Miami Vice to be the unofficial sequel to Heat, which was never likely.

    One of the great things about movies is that there will always be those who will enjoy a film and those who will hate the exact same film. I friend of mine absolutely detests Heat, but a lot of people like it. Such is life :)

    I love "A Knight's Tale"

    Most people seem to hate it.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

  • Deleted user 27 June 2013 11:35:04
    I quite liked Miami Vice, but it might help that I generally don't like Mann and think Heat is one of the most overrated movies ever.

    Thought MV was pretty good fun.

    Fun fact: I can play the opening bar to the MV theme tune on my daughters Peppa Pig piano.

    I enjoy it too. And I'm prepared to give any haters a right good thronging.

    Heat is awesome and MV is good.

    Not sure they got the casting right. Farrell and Foxx come across as cocks.

    I think thats kind of the point, unless I really did totally mis-understand it.

    Heat gets over-praised because of the DeNiro/Pacino pairing, innit. Don't get me started on the magazine.

    Add me to the list too. Dull as fuck, and I really didn't get the praise for the shoot-out. It's OK but there are far better films in the same genre out there imo

    "That scene" is definitely the highlight of the film, by a significant distance.

    For me it suffered with its timing as well. It came out quite soon after Pulp Fiction, and after that Heat just felt really stodgy and sluggish to me.
