a creepy movie. not the most original, but it still fits in enough scares into it's short running time. just forget about the dreary remake.

The Departed
The Departed (2006)
9 years ago via Flixster

Immediatedly engaging crime-thriller-drama. The cast was terrific, and Scorsese's direction made perfect use of such a stellar case, using a cracking script and strong characters to weave a story of corruption and violence. Leonardo & Damon made their characters 100% believeable, and even the supporting actors were a notch above the usual bit-part characters. Jack Nicholson was on fire once again, stealing every scene he was in. the backstory is fleshier than Infernal Affairs, so you feel a greater sense of involvement when watching these undercover characters weave their way around a crime syndicate. the script, as said before, is fantastic, with brilliantly inventive insults used every few lines, mostly spouted by Mark Wahlberg. one other thing i fucking loved about this movie, the headshots. yes, the headshots. you'll see what i mean when you watch it. highly recommended, it's somewhere in my Top 10 of 2006 for sure.

The Big Lebowski
9 years ago via Flixster

one of the most original films of the 90's takes you on a quest with 'The Dude' which includes mistaken identities, kidnappings and a missing carpet. Jeff Bridges finest role, his character is up there with the great movie icons. . other highlights of this fantastic movie is it's hilarioulsy quotable script and a fantastic supporting role by John Goodman. rewatchable and rewarding. an all round brilliant movie. "8 year-olsd dude."

Notes on a Scandal
9 years ago via Flixster

a brilliantly realised thriller, with impressive acting from all involved. Dench shines as the sadisctic stalker blackmailing Cate Blanchett. the story is tight, and very well told even if it did seem a bit unnecessary once the credits roll. worthy of the oscar nomination, i've just yet to decide whether it's worthy to win any.
