I have to return some videotapes...
actually Heat is one of the most weakest Mann's movie

The Insider
and Collateral are way better even Public Ennemies is better in my opinion.
Really you think so? I think Collateral is better and I haven't seen the others but I have heard that Public Enemies is bad.

Malick is overrated in every definition of the word. One of the most pretentious and boring director of all-time.
Tree of Life is a very interesting film. I didn't like Knights of Cups, but I didn't absolutely hate it.

It felt very arbitrary. "Let's give this story a happy ending because... reasons."

I much preferred the Mangold version. It had a lot more tension and a more satisfying resolution for me.
Understandable. Which version did you see first? I saw the original first so maybe thats why we have different views? With there being 50 years apart it would make sense to make the ending (and film as a whole) a lot grittier. Personally I got more tension and atmosphere from the original, not too mention I much preferred Ford to Crowe as Ben Wade.

In fairness I would probably need to see Mangold's version again as it has been a while.

The Revenant

If this movie sucks, I'm coming back here and kicking the as* of anyone that gave it a positive rating.



That is. There's a cult around here that thinks Mann's lousiest movies are his best.
Lol so after the Lynch mob there is now a Mann cult... I like that.

I saw Mangold's version first. I much preferred Crowe as Ben Wade, but then I am a Crowe fan so that was always going to be a biased opinion. I also was a bit blown away by Ben Foster as Charlie Prince. I'm not usually a big fan of westerns but I absolutely loved 3:10 to Yuma. I saw it in the theater three times. I think it was in my top ten at one point.

I went into the Delmer Daves version expecting to love it, too. I didn't hate it, it certainly had its moments, but those moments were overshadowed by that irritating ending.

You think Malick is losing his ability to tell a story? I would disagree, I think he's losing the ability to tell a good story with the same formula he has been using since Tree of Life. Still think he is very capable of writing something good, he just needs to add more actual conversations in his films.
I didn't say that, it's something I think I remember mark saying (as it says in the original post)
