How are you guys leaving off What's Eating Gilbert Grape?
======================================

I haven't seen that one

As for the Departed, Scorsese got the sympathy vote there. He should've won an Oscar years before that.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

He should of won one before that, but you can't say it wasn't the most deserving ffs. It wasn't a great year for movies bar Pan's Labyrinth which was never going to win a big award.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
It should've though. It's a masterpiece. Del Toro won for Shape of Water more as an apology for not giving it to him for Pan's labyrinth.

Although Shape of Water is pretty good.

Goodfellas should definitely have beaten Dances with Wolves although I did love both films

Raging Bull should've won too

As for the Departed year, yes I thought Pan's Labyrinth was good and I thought Babel was up there too. I know Departed was a remake, I have never seen the original film. I would like to see that at some point.

I would say Departed is a masterpiece as well.

I preferred it as a movie to Pans Labyrinth even though I think the directing is better by Del Toro

Yes this is well known, what's the relevance?

Is it any good?

I have a long list of movies I'd like to watch, so was thinking of adding this to it.

Yeah pretty good, less Hollywood than the original (ending differs). I guess you lose a bit of the shock factor which made the Departed so good; and it lacks the acting/editorial talent of the original.

Replace "original" with "remake" there
