The Departed

I've said it before. They're both amazing, but I like The Departed more than Goodfellas. I like undercover cop stories more than gangster stories, maybe. Everybody lying is more interesting than everybody stealing. This is the last role with teeth for Nicholson so far, isn't it? Jack's still got it. And: I keep meaning to sit down and watch the Infernal Affairs films. Gotta do that sometime.

On a side note, I've been using the title card of films on video or poster images for films in theater (or that I can't find title card images for), but looking over the list so far, I'm getting bored with white text on black. Not enough movies do anything interesting with title sequences these days. I may come up with a Plan B for the boring ones.
