The Departed

Wow. Marty Scor is going to get an Oscar for this one.

First off, yes its a remake of a Hong Kong movie called Infernal Affairs. But it is not the same movie. Ive seen both and The Departed is much better IMO. Its not that I hate reading subtitles, but as a movie freak/actor/director ect, I firmly believe that film is a visual and audio experiance. Having to read subtitles takes away from my viewing experiance because something will always be missed on screen while you are reading the subbies. And I read/comprehend at 800 words per minute.(Average WPM is 200-250)


But back to The Departed. Everyone in this movie turns in an awsome performance. No one phones anything in here. Jack, Leo, Matty D(proves again why he is BETTER than Affleck) all turn in performances that will get them at least Oscar consideration. Just a great movie in a year of mostly crap. The best part is the suspense that builds up. Its awsome.

Do yourself a favor and see it. Even if you are a Hong Kong cinephila, go see it and see why Scorcese is one of the best on the planet.

Long movie though so drink your juice accordingly. it comes in at 149 minutes. You can NOT go to pee. No time.

if you DO have to drain the lizard, go pee early....there's a saucy little scene with dicaprio and a below-average chick...not even a nipple...so go then if you have to.

I thoroughly enjoyed the flick, lost the plot once, then got it right back a few scenes later.

Go watch it.

I saw it last night. I was confused as hell at first but once i caught on it got pretty good. And it did not end at all how I expected. I was laughing at the end though...

Well the first response to someone who dislikes subtitles is that you hate to read and then the accuser puts their hands over his ears and says blah blah blah blah!!!!! over and over again. So I felt it nessicary to point out that I can indeed read and thats not the problem I have with subbies
