I just got back from watching the new Miami Vice remake, and- it's not bad, for a summer shoot-em up. I'll tell ya, that Michael Mann knows how to film a dude getting shot.
Still, though- Colin Farrell, man- that guy is the worst. Look at this picture of him from the film:
I mean, for God's sake.
I'd be enjoying the movie, digging on a bit of witty repartee and stylized violence from Tubbs and some blonde paramilitary cop chick, when all of a sudden, this blob of anti-charisma would lumber onscreen, and I'd think-"OK- so what exactly does that hot Asian chick see in this lead singer from a Ratt cover band?" Or, maybe, "Boy! That overweight used car dealer from Buffalo sure seems to have a fast speedboat!" I mean, he's sporting some bad hair and a bad mustache right there. And don't tell me it was set in the 80's, cause they were all over the high tech cell phones.
But honestly, if you're not making a comedy, should Sonny Crockett from Miami Vice really look like The Paul Rudd character from Anchorman? I guess what I'm saying is look at these pictures of people with similar hair as Colin Farrell, under which I have placed some actual dialogue delivered by Farrell in the movie, and you decide if this should have been a drama or a comedy.
"“I'’m a fiend for mojitos"
"Do you understand the meaning of the word 'foreboding', as in badness is happening right now? "
"Probability is like gravity. And you can't argue with gravity."
I told you it would come back around to hockey.
Cut me some slack, we're in late July over here.
