I like just about anything; I have my preferences (I find myself leaning towards crime, noir, and epics), but I'm not an extremely discriminate moviewatcher. Chances are, if it's a classic and/or well-received by most, I'll probably like it, so I guess I'm kind of predictable. I also love anything with great cinematography and gorgeous visuals; my very favorites are populated by-and-large with movies that are, among their other merits, pleasing to the eye.
|90 T9||Miami Vice (2006) - Sep 25, 2011
"Miami Vice flips "cool" on its head, transforming its protagonists from sleek, superficial badasses to weary romantics who keep their emotions in check. So, too, does Mann eschew the temptation to make it an action film, giving us instead a deliberate portrayal of cops-and-criminals that makes the world they inhabit feel vacuous and mournful (courtesy especially of some brilliant digital cinematography). If you're looking for a thriller, this won't deliver, but it's quite excellent otherwise."
