QUICK REVIEWS is back in action! This time, I’m taking a look at The Departed, another action crime drama from Martin Scorsese. Man, nobody does mob movies like Scorsese. The screenplay is by William Monahan (this is probably his most famous movie) and starring… well, everybody. The Departed stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Jack Nicholson, and Mark Wahlberg, Martin Sheen, Ray Winstone, Vera Farmiga, Anthony Anderson and Alec Baldwin. You think they got enough stars? I bet a lot (half?) of that $90 million dollar budget went to salaries! It’s not Scorsese’s best movie, but I’m a fan of The Departed.
That’s a good question. What is Scorsese’s best movie? Goodfellas?

I’ve never said anything about gun control before. I don’t know why it took the events in Orlando to shake me out of my apathy or whatever it was, but I’m awake now.
