I don't like him either. I think he is a terrible actor but he just owns his role in the film. It is the most natural performance he has given and his dialogue in the film is far better written than the usual 'bad cop' roles needed in the genre.

On the plus side Mark Wahlberg will never ever be as good as he is in The Departed. I think he is the best thing in the film.
Infernal Affairs is pretty good, not great or anything, certainly not up to par with something like John Woo's Bullet in The Head or Wong Kar Wai's Fallen Angels

I didn't see The Departed cos it has Matt Damon but Mark Wahlberg is in it as well? Ni, ni, ni a thousand times ni

^^Haha, Leonardo Dicrapio is also in it. I can't stand him when he plays tough guys.

Personally, I like Leo a lot more when he isn't playing the intellectual, Inception/Shutter Island type.

Battle Los Angeles was the most recent one. Pretty awful movie. I can't help but feel they were 13 years too late with this one.

Ha, I watched Shutter Island recently, forgot to post about it. Well, he's playing there a U.S. marshal and a battle hardened war veteran, so a tough guy. I actually thought he was good in both films. There's no room for overacting in Nolan's films and I was so immersed in Shutter Island that I didn't mind him. Aside from occasional overstating he usually does, he was good. Maybe, I'm warming up to him. And I really didn't expect to like the film as much as I did.

Anyway, I like Leo the best when he plays to his strengths. Because of his everlasting boyishness he's at his best when he uses that sneaky, boyish charm, like in Catch Me If You Can.

The Next Three Days



I really like what I have seen so far. The basic jist of the movie is that Russel Crowe plays a college professor that has to break his wife out of prison for a crime she didn't commit.

I need to re-watch it because I was tired upon first viewing and I just dozed off.

I really hate watching movies in bed.
