Michael Mann Is An Idjit
And when I say I think the film looks bad, I mean that literally. It LOOKS bad. Like his last film, "Collateral," Mann has shot this on HD video, and it looks like ass. It's dark and flat and full of everything that is bad about video. I watched the re-airing of the original "Miami Vice" pilot on NBC Saturday, and it was padded with lots of stuff from the new movie, and I was appalled at how bad it looked. Of course, every time I mention how bad I think movies shot on video look, most people look at me like I'm nuts because they can't tell a difference. And I all I can do is come back with an exasperated GOB inspired, "COME ON!"
