Watched "In the Heat of the Night" recently. Plot is pretty flimsy and formulaic, but both lead performances were good enough to compensate.
"Manhunter." Wow, I was expecting a lot more from Michael Mann and the reviews. This was a struggle to get through. I can live with slow pacing but this was just plain boring.
Not a fan of City of God
. The story was messy as hell. I was wondering over and over again who the main character was Rocket or Lil Ze. It was a visual stunner though. Incredible filmmaking.
