The Departed: chuckle, chuckle, chuckle

Just back from seeing The Departed, latest movie by Scorcese.

Will he finally win an Academy Award, for Best Picture?

The Departed is very well acted (Sheehan, DeCaprio, Damon, Baldwin, etc.) and intense, but it sure is violent and bloody.

In fact, by the end of the movie, so many people are dead from splat-shots to the head, that a whole bunch of us in this crowded theater were laughing out loud. It just seemed a bit silly.

I wonder if anyone else had a similar experience.

Are "real people" actually laughing at Scorcese's latest effort?

If that is the case, I do think that it would be a bit ironic and amusing if he won his Academy Award for this one.

Yeah, it was a bit over the top.
Excellent acting, though. Wouldn't surprise me if the acting got awarded but the movie itself not?
