If you don't know, The Departed is a movie in which Jack Nicholson plays a mob boss. Matt Damon goes to work for the police force as a mob mole, and Leonardo DiCaprio works for the mob as a police mole. The cops figure out they have a mole, and assign Damon to find him, and the mob figures out they have a mole, and assigns DiCaprio to find him. Alec Baldwin and Martin Sheen are also in it, and it's directed by Martin Scorscese.
Anywas, if any of that sounds familiar, it's because it's a remake of Infernal Affairs, which has been discussed here by both me and alltogethernow.
So, I'm conflicted on how to feel about the new version. The cast is incredible, but I already know the basic plot, and why would I want to watch a movie that's essentially the same thing I've already seen?
On the other hand, it's not like everything I watch is original, so who cares?
Anyways, I'm curious what other people think, either about this in particular, or about remakes in general.
