    The Departed

    After seeing "The Departed" win some Oscars at the Academy Awards I decided to watch it again. I couldn't understand it the first time around. I have difficulty recognizing faces and, when I first watched the flick, I thought that Matt Damon and Leonardo DiCaprio were the same person. Now that I know they are not the movie made a whole lot more sense.

    I watched it on a pirate DVD and the editing seemed to have been done by Edward Scissorhands with the DTs. I shall have to watch it again properly. It can't be as bad as I first thought and to have won an Oscar - only good films win Oscars.
    Back off Margaret, you're on a sugar rush!

    For me it was much more understandable the second time around. When I finally figured out that DiCaprio and Damon were playing different characters the point of the film became clear. First time around I thought there was just one young handsome blond guy. Turns out there are two.

    Every time I see Matt Damon I think of his puppet in "Team America".

    This is too FUNNY! I watched this movie w/ my Dad a couple of weeks ago, & he thought the same exact thing! He also likes the song "Battle of New Orleans"!

    AC, I think you are my Fathers long lost brother! I'll start calling you Uncle AC!
