What is that giant rock coming down the hill, and why are they calling it "Marty"?
You guys, this buzz for The Departed is getting scary. In a good way. Nobody seems to have any reaction aside from rabid praise, and everyone I know cannot wait to see it. This could end up being a critical darling and a box-office success story. And you know what happens to those movies. They get beat by Crash for Best Picture. No, no. Seriously. This movie could be huge.
I know I said I'd hang up the Oscar talk re: Scorsese this year, but...I don't even want to say it. I'll just advise the Dreamgirls to watch their backs and leave it at that. Could be time to revise those predictions.
