Yeah, Michael Mann is awesome. He's directed 3 of my top 10 favorite movies: Manhunter, Last of the Mohicans and Heat

I really liked Collateral and Miami Vice also. ;-D


Ali was quite the crowning achievement, as well. ;-D

That's a bit of a gripe with me. I wish there were more comedic football movies. Not so much slappy physical humor type of movie like "The Waterboy," but something like "Any Given Sunday" but with more player wackiness. There's a couple books that I'm thinking of when I talk about a dramedy type of football movie, but I don't think there's been a movie like it yet.

A satirical look at how a modern football team deals with a player like TO could make for a good movie. But no more inspirational high school or college stories, please Hollywood. More modern NFL type stuff is what I want.


What about Jerry McGuire? Not really about football though.

Does Fight Club count as serious? It's probably my favorite movie anyways.
