Let's count down Tuesday's DVDs from Buy to Rent, with a smidge of
disinformation in between. Ladies and germs, your February 13th DVDs!
I liked it, but I didn't love it (Cousin
Laremy's Review). I liked the original a little better. Dre has a
quotable Departed column inbound in his continual quest to
steal my personality. MaryAnn has The Departed ranked
fifth of 2006. Okay, that's enough supplemental material to make
the impression that this is a movie of note. Pretend this is a bull

that he could trod willy-nilly over accepted social norms of the time.
And that's where the conflict came in. So no, I haven't seen it.
It's a movie about a very naughty word which I would get fired for
using. No, just kidding, Film.com is great. I really like the premise
for this movie, though it could wind up as one-note. Certainly a
rental, though, if only to shock your parents.
Hit 'em where they ain't.
