Martin Scorsese

movies"The Departed" is the first movie in a long time I've actually wanted to see in theatres. In fact, if I can score babysitting, I'm totally there.

Martin Scorsese, the director of "The Departed", has somehow never won an Oscar, despite being nominated seven times. "Goodfellas", which ranks #2 on my ten favourite movies of all-time list, lost out to "Dances With Wolves". I kid you not. "Raging Bull" somehow lost to "Ordinary People". Scorsese gets no respect, no respect at all.

The man is a true talent and a rarity in the biz. Here's hoping "The Departed" is as good as I hope it is and that Oscar is paying attention.

Jordy and I saw it last night and let me tell you it's as great as everyone says. I'm not a big fan of that DiCapprio kid but man, he was money! Here's hoping Scorsese gets some respect this time around.

wondering fool

Mike, Your absolutly correct and we all hope this time Scorcese scores big. Speaking of scoring big, and the reason I found this site in the first place, I'm researching Barilko and was wondering if you know of any film rights, or story rights, or if there is a movie in the works.

I recently interviewed the author of "Barilko: Without a Trace". He spills good details about the movie in the works. Read it here.
