Thief might have been Michael Mann's first flick, obliously pre Miami Vice TV series........

No offense. 

Biel was hot though.........

That wasn't Statham, that was the other guy who was a whiny douche.

The dialogue is killer in that movie.  Definitely not action packed or dramatic but some great dialogue.  Was not expecting it.

Joe and Max (2002 made for TV movie)

the story surrounding the two Loe Louis vs Max Schmeling fights. EXCELLENT for those interested in either famous prize fights OR history.

I'm not Rappaport (1996)

most excellent acting by Walter Matthau and Ozzie Davis. worth watching for the scene where Nat (Matthau) and Midge (Davis) get stoned in Central Park.

will be on HBO again March 22nd and 23rd

Frailty was a very good horror/suspense movie that it seems no one has seen.

Awesome movie. "God will protect me".
Matthew McConaughey is usually good in everything movie he does.

My Favorites all, but 1 were kinda sleepers at box office:

The Insider                               R. Crowe
Last of the Dogmen                   T. Berenger  Barb Hershey
No Way Out                             K. Costner
Primal Fear                              R. Gere  E. Norton Really got E.
                                                                           Norton going
Man On Fire                             D. Washington D. Fanning

In my opinion, some classic tough guy dramas:

-Two older Kevin Costner movies---1.No Way Out

                                                  2.Revenge

-Jason Patric and Ray Liotta in Narc.

-Mel Gibson in Payback

Bookieassassin mentioned "Millers Crossing"  .

One of my favorite crime gangster flicks ever. Highly recommend it.

You got me on that one. 
(I guess the key word in my statement was "usually".)
