The Departed


Wanna see a great movie? Try "The Departed" directed by Martin Scorcese... Its a brilliant gangster movie, a remake of the classic John Woo diamond, "Infernal Affairs", starring (amongst others,) Leonardo De Caprio, Matt Damon, Mark Wahlberg, Ray Winstone and Jack Nicholson.
The storyline is fabulous, intricately woven with twists a-plenty, and the soundtrack, (all important to me) is legendary...

I'm feeling a little smug tonight 'cos I searched, found, and even managed to download my favourite track off the movie, onto my phone (!) ... This whole process was an ITC triumph for me, as my technophobia about such a process is the stuff of legend...
Anyway, if you wanna hear it and also see some clips off the movie, check the video below... I love it and its got my Irish genes jiggling! Good stuff!

I think I've seen a trailer of that movie sometime ago...

Anyway, I'm not a huge fan of movies, it lacks interaction, if you know what I mean... :/ but I do enjoy a good flick once in a while.

Recently I saw Apocalypto for the second time (great movie, by the way) and now I'm patiently waiting for 300 to be released on DVD. Saw that in the cinema some months ago and it was just fan-fucking-tastic!

Maybe I'll give The Departed a chance next time I rent a movie.

God! I LOVE the way you speak such good English that you called a movie a 'flick' and used the expression (one of mine I think) fan-fucking-tastic! You rock!

Gnome! (Another of my favourite ESL peeps) I've known and been impressed by your ESL skills for ages. Watch the film and if you think its crap, I'll fly over to Greece and act as your servant for...erm, a minute... Then I'll raid your liquor cabinet and stay for six months!

God, if you two could hear my pigeon French and amoeba like Spanish, you'd be apalled... As for Greek and Portugese, you'd probably just beat me up...

The Elderly said...

gnome said...

You fly over and then we'll see... Just dont bring the Spanish amobea please...

NebachadnezzaR said...

Dear elderly! I'm so sorry for my lack of response! Computer problems coupled with being in Liverpool for a couple of days has mede me look like an unresponsive and ignorant person! Thanks for dropping by... Can I get you a cup of tea? Or maybe something stronger... Maybe a nip of Spanish amoeba liqure? :)
