    The Departed

    HOLY SHIT was this ever a fantastic fucking flick. The cast was brilliant, and although it was definitely a different Scorcese than his past masterpieces (a la Goodfellas, etc), this was definitely some of his most quality work. Violence and headshots abound, so not the movie to take your squeamish girl to. If you're jonesing fo the type of movie that REALLY makes you think, that you really have to pay attention to, this is it. I will watch it in theaters again, just to see everything I missed the first time through, and I will defintely buy the DVD. Four stars, two thumbs up, whatever. Go see this movie.

    Saw it and loved it as well. Didnt expect the ending to go the way it did but at least it didnt leave any questions! Great movie.

    I've been places, seen and done things that would make most cry. I've fought along side and against better men then most I come across day to day, i've put my life on the line more then once for things you take for granted and for those you have lost respect for. I don't tell you this for your pity or respect but for you to remember me.

    I'm going to wait until it comes out on DVD and purchase it. No sense in wasting money in the theatres in my opinion! I have a pretty good cop/swat movie collection going so I figured that'd be a nice addition when I first saw the previews...

    Not sure about where you live but I know that around my area its cheaper to actually go to the theaters even with the gf, spouse etc.. than it is to buy the damn dvd. But like you I will also buy the dvd as well as go to the theaters.
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

    To take my Wife and Daughter to the movies, with drinks and snack, it's 75.00 bucks easy.

    I'd rather own it over seeing it just once though. To go to the movies with my girlfriend gets close to 30 bucks anyway and when it comes out on DVD it will most likely be around 20. Plus, like I said it my first post, I like to collect cop DVD's for some odd reason.

    I enjoyed the movie, but I wanted to see Leonardo's character win in the end. Hell, with all he went through, he earned it!

    Great flick, though.

    I finally saw The Departed last night.

    It's a great flick. Probably the first movie where I actually liked Marky Mark's character.

    i thought it was coolies too
    http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    One theater is $9.00 per person, (50 cents less for kids and old timers) No beer, and sodas and popcorn for one is about 10 bucks.

    The other is $6.00 per adult ($4.00 kids and old timers) AND they have really cheap beer. (draft 24 oz cup for 2.25) Imports are 3 bucks.

    It's a no brainer.

    Hahaha damn...around here the theaters don't sell alcohol at all and it costs $9.50 per adult. With the theaters costing so much now I usually just wait and rent it, or buy it!

    I have to agree with you, he was alright in "The Italian Job" but that was about it. No wait, my wife is sitting here and she brought up a decent one, FEAR, he played a Sociopathic freak in that one and it was pretty good.

    Have not seen this one yet, but can't wait.
    STOP RESISTING!!!!

    For he is God's servant to do you good, but if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing. He is God's servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.
