I didn't see this movie but I really liked Goodfellas. It's about time he got one of those statues.

Ryan said...

Not one of his greatest films, but he sure deserves it!

Oh, and Matt Damon played a great closet case in the movie!

I got Babel in the mail today from Netflix - should get the Departed next. I have to admit, I've avoided it for fear of having my head explode from Jack over acting

I went to the store to rent a copy, but they were all gone!!

My video store is all out of The Departed as well. This is what happens when the late fee policy is abolished.

GetFlix, this was the only movie out of all the nominated films that I thought was the most deserving. I had the fortune of seeing it before all The Queen and Last King of Scotland hoo-ha. And I think Mark Wahlberg was cheated out of his Best Supporting Oscar, only because he has more impact in the short time he has on film than Eddie Murphy and Alan Arkin combined. Martin Scorsese is back to true form.

OT: Have you seen the new show called "The Black Donnely's?" It's pretty good. I think it's on Thursday nights. If you liked The Departed, you'll appreciate this gritty new drama. Check it out!!

LA, they had to give it to him! What a director.

Pru, the industry really needed to give him one of those statue thingies.

Diane, I hear you.

Mish, let me know when you get a copy. It's like the film is popular or something.

Kook, I can't wait to see it. I've been tempted by the Black Donnely's.

I don't think this is one of his best movies but I enjoyed watching the film.

GetFlix you have to check out The Black Donnelys it is brilliant but very brutal. It is kind of like an Irish version of the Sopranos.

This was a long movie! Although I didn't look at the clock once while watching it.. Which is why I know this was a good movie.. Leo gave such a strong performance.. I have to say he is very talented! I loved Marks role.. And the name really say's it all.. I have to say I was thinging Of the name when I rented it.. And I said to myself.."I bet everyone dies."
