The Departed vs Brooklyn's Finest

Which one of these cop dramas did you enjoy more or consider better?

Re: The Departed vs Brooklyn's Finest

Of all the cop films out there, why compare these two? A Best Picture winner that was generally well received vs Cop Cliche: The Movie?

The Departed hands down. This will be very lopsided.

I voted for the Oscar winning one with amazing acting and directing.

I was so tempted to make a Raging Bull vs Play it to the Bone poll.

I don't even need to watch Brooklyn's Finest to know The Departed is better.

Re: The Departed vs Brooklyn's Finest

I didn't vote because I haven't seen Brooklyn's Finest but I'm gonna go ahead and guess the answer is the one directed by Scorsese and not some other guy.

Re: The Departed vs Brooklyn's Finest

I have actually seen both. Brooklyns Finest wasn't terrible (besides the end being a little goofy), but the Departed was excellent.

I voted for the one that is only 1 degree away from The Funky Bunch.

LOL! That's great stuff.

And "Brooklyn's Finest" is problably one of the dullest movies I've ever seen.

I voted for the one that didn't have a Rihanna song in the trailer.

Re: The Departed vs Brooklyn's Finest

I was actually going to create a thread about The Departed to mention how much that film has grown on me (to see if it has affected others in the same way as well). The story is nothing special and there are even some really bad moments but it has some damn great acting and obviously.....directing.

Brooklyn's Finest, I actually like a lot as well. It's definitely more on the depressing side.

Obviously for this thread I would pick The Departed.

/\ Gotta go with Cop and a Half, only because The Professional did not have a scene with the hero and child urinating into a toilet at the same time.

Re: The Departed vs Brooklyn's Finest

Brooklyn's Finest sucked, maybe the most unoriginal cliched movie ever made.

Re: The Departed vs Brooklyn's Finest

I was tempted to vote for Brooklyn's Finest just to be a Douche and mess up the poll but found I just couldn't bring myself to do it. After voting and seeing the results I see a few people had the same idea.

Re: The Departed vs Brooklyn's Finest

I think a more apt comparison would be Brooklyn's Finest to Pride and Glory or to We Own the Night.
