This may sound like heresy, but I don't miss any of those guys or the films they made. Especially Chuck Norris and Schwartzenegger. About detective films, the point for me is not quantity but quality. A couple good ones a year would be fine...
Meanwhile, the Montalbano series based on Andrea Camilleri is very fine. A channel called MHz has been broadcasting the series around here. Unusual crimes, excellent Sicilian atmosphere, pretty dark without much action. This TV series honors the books, which are also excellent.
