    Default Intern-al Affairs/The Departed, OSCAR

    this has always been bothering me. How can The Departed win an Oscar, hailed as a great movie, when it is a remake of the chinese made The Departed? It is an exact remake of the Internal Affairs(although it says Based on....) And Internal Affairs was even more detailed then The Departed. And the Matt Damon character in Internal Affairs lives and he outdid everybody.

    So my question is this? Does the OScar win for The Departed deserve an asterix?

    Because 368 mafia won a Oscar before Marty did, which was a fucking joke.

    First off the movie is called Infernal Affairs. Second we had this discussion when the Departed first came out. >_>


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    I wondered why they were speaking Chinese in the Departed. Now I know. Thanks for the heads up.

    I wonder why,
    in one of those scene where the gangs were dealing with their smuggling shit.
    The foreign Gang spoke Mandarin,
    while the other gang their translator speak freaking Cantonese.

    well talk about fucked up.

    ^ It does happen all to often. There is an episode of Millenium where the 'Chinese' guy is speaking Japanese. I don't think continuity people worry too much about it.

    On a nifty note, in Saving Private Ryan, there is a scene where some random guy shouts at the US soldiers. They blow him away. My Czech friend laughed about it. He says the random guy is shouting in Czech - saying 'Please don't shoot me. I'm not a German'.
