Cool Videos: Video essay on Heat puts scene and script side-by-side

HEAT is one of the great movies of the 90’s. We got Al Pacino , Robert De Niro , Michael Mann and, hell, we can even give a shout out to Val Kilmer .

But there’s one scene so good it could win an Oscar by itself: the coffee shop scene. In...

Cool Videos: Batman & The Joker remake Heat

With all the oxygen of the day being sucked up by SUICIDE SQUAD talk and not much else going on, I thought I'd throw you a DC Cinematic bone of sorts to help you make it to the other side. Granted, this has nothing to do with what Warner Bros. is kicking around at the moment, but it does go a little old-school with one of their films from 20 years ago - Michael Mann 's...

The idea is to put together a group of writers and develop a series of novels...

Movie Jail: This week's defendant is...Ashley Judd!

This is Movie Jail, a unique maximum security prison that houses some of the worst writers, directors, actors and producers from Hollywood and beyond. Their crimes? The offenses vary from convict to convict but most of these inmates have contributed negatively to the film world to some capacity and his or her misdeeds have covered a long enough period of time that the authorities had...

C'mon, Hollywood: Let's give Robert De Niro some better material!

With GRUDGE MATCH being released and met with such lukewarm reception, it only reminds me that the once great Robert De Niro hasn't had the hottest track record of late. Now, every actor has his or her string of substandard films, but the amount that has plagued him lately is straight up unfortunate. There was a time when one thought of De Niro, films like CASINO , GOODFELLAS and...

Simon West to direct Jason Statham's Heat remake

It is about time someone decided to remake HEAT. What a piece of garbage that movie was. I mean, I get that it is a crime drama starring some famous actors, but come on. If anyone really wants to give me a convincing argument that HEAT should not be remade, now is the time to tell me. Wait, there was a HEAT with Al Pacino and Robert De Niro? Never heard of it. I am referring to...

The UnPopular Opinion: Heat

Michael Mann is probably the only director who has a catalogue of films that I love across the board. While they each of course have their own issues and certain elements which don’t quite work as well in execution as Mann surely meant them to, I nonetheless hold his catalogue as a whole in a much higher regard than I do almost any other director working today. I used my very...
