Miami Vice - The Movie
Watched the "Miami Vice" movie on DVD tonight. It didn't get great reviews, but I thorougly enjoyed it as someone who thought "Miami Vice" was the coolest thing on television in the 1980's (at least until Mann's "Crime Story" came along). It has a darker vibe, but all the qualities that made the original show work well - lots of fast cars, action, style, and two buddy cops who are cool cats. I think it actually plays better in a home theater setting - on the big screen, some of the endless music video stuff might get a little tedious, but they got tedious sometimes in the weekly series too.
