The Departed

OMG. Want to watch a ******* great movie? (Hehehe, the bleeped out portion is in the spirit of the movie...)

Watch this.

The Departed

FINALLY, Drew and I get to watch a decent movie. And it's friggin' awesome! Ang galing nung story! At siyemps, Martin Scorsese film din yan so of course it's awesome! It's a remake of the movie "Infernal Affairs" (not familiar with that, though).

Jack Nicholson - Evil. Evil. Evil. He's sooo bad he's good.
Matt Damon - You'd want to like him, but you have to hate him.
Leonardo DiCaprio - Mighty fine actor, this guy!
Mark Wahlberg - The artist formerly known as Marky Mark. The potty-mouth and the plastadong hairstyle is so very oxymoronish.
Alec Baldwin
Martin Sheen

And a guy called James Badge Dale, who caught my attention when he appeared in the joint episode of CSI Miami and CSI NY (he also guested in CSI Las Vegas and was a regular in 24, I think). I just found out a few minutes ago that he was the kid that was murdered in the movie version of Lord of the Flies.

I just checked out the official website of The Departed ( and watched the trailer, and realized that OMG they showed some pretty important stuff in the trailer! But of course you'll only realize how important they are after you've watched the film.

I hope The Departed snags some Oscars next Academy Awards night!

One more cool thing about this film is that it features the song "Comfortably Numb" by Pink Floyd. Not sure if that was used in any of the Rockstar seasons. But I'm pretty sure I got to know Pink Floyd through that show; I love "Wish You Were Here" (c/o Marty Casey, though Storm's was OK too) because of Rockstar:INXS.

This is Pink Floyd performing "Comfortably Numb" at the Live 8 gig.
