The Departed - 2/13/07

Just saw the street date on DavisDVD. I'm hoping for some great special features on this one (esp. a Scorsese commentary).

Hopefully WB will give us a good 2-Disk Set like they did with the Aviator dvd.
They also better not make us pay extra for a 2-disk edition like they have been doing lately....And if it is extra it better be loaded with good features unlike dissapointing disks like V for Vendetta and Batman Begins...

Really hoping this hits HD day and date... the best movie of '06 so far.

Awesome movie. Can't wait to watch it again. Also hoping for an HD or Blu Ray release.

I'll probably rent it, unless it's super cheap. Some movies I don't like the first time and do the second or vice versa, so i'll give it another watch.

Definitely an immediate buy for me - I've been fighting off the impulse to go for a repeat while it's still in theaters.

i am very much looking forward to this. this one really stayed with me. i've seen bits and pieces while waiting for other movies and it seems i can't get enough. i have a feeling this will be another i am "obsessed" with.

Since Scorsese's Oscar is more or less a given at this stage, they need to delay the DVD release date. Then they can put on the cover "THE MOVIE THAT FINALLY GOT MARTY HIS OSCAR."

Seriously, I hope this has some great features on it.

The hell it will!

If you think it is, then you obviously haven't seen Babel.

Despite if this is the best of 06 or if it will get Scorsese an Oscar, I'm defiantely picking it up. Here's hoping this will buck WB trend of charging more for a 2discer, but who's saying it'll be two discer?

I'm thinking a commentary, making of, and a few more other things, not 2disc worthy.

Anyway, can't wait.

This is the one DVD I've been looking forward the most, hopo they get a good 2 discer set going for it. Buying this on release day. Loved this movie, good to see the touch is not lost.

Cool, hopefully there'll be a featurette comparing this to Infernal Affairs.

I'm just hoping that WB breaks their recent streak of no commentaries on new releases with The Departed.

Those Greedy Bastards!!!
Oh well, if they do a good job on the disks I certainly wont complain seeing how amazon will lower that $34.99 price down to around $19.99.
Hopefully the deluxe edition will have Commentaries with Scorsese , Nicholson, Screenwriter, etc.
Also the Score cd should be included to make a 3-Disk set ala Mystic River...
