Phil asked about the movie "Heat":

"Without De Niro and Pacino with their usual stirling performances, would it have flown at all?"

From what I understand, Heat was a virtual remake of a made for TV movie/potential series pilot Michael Mann had made several years earlier, not too long after Miami Vice. Supposedly, critics dismissed it as "LA VIce." I haven't seen the earlier one, but Film Threat once did a comparison that seemed pretty convincing.
