Add me to the list of haters for The Departed. But Goodfellas is one of the greatest movies ever made. Its long, but doesn't have a single dull moment.

re: Cop Land: Overrated or Underrated?

Copland is one of the best films I've ever seen, and one of my top 10 favorite 1990's movies. I recently re-watched this on Blu-ray, and it was even better than I remembered.

Superb performance by Stallone - this may be my favorite role of his. And, the movie was basically an ensemble piece - DeNiro, Keitel, Patrick, and Rapaport were all amazing as well.

Also, the back-story centered around the Stallone character was interesting & somewhat poignant -
Spoiler:
i.e., he obviously held a torch for Liz Randone (Sciorra) - whom he had saved years before (after her car crashed in the water), resulting in the permanent hearing loss in one of his ears. But, because of their respective situations, he couldn't do anything about this.

It’s on the DVD that I posted.

Here’s the DVDTalk review: https://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/1101...directors-cut/

I don’t understand how you can’t find anything on it. I know the joke is beaten to death but can you seriously not use Google?

re: Cop Land: Overrated or Underrated?

Again, as I mentioned to your previous post, this is the 116 minute cut. That is also on current bluray. IMDb lists an extended director’s cut or something like that which runs 120 minutes. I know their site is user based, but trying to confirm if exists or not what’s different and how I can see it if exists. Maybe you should look on your own links...

Well fuck me.

But those are the only two cuts.

Yes. I can see that. But there is nothing out there with an extended directors cut. Maybe they’re including the two deleted scenes.

Man, this thread needs a title fix. I thought this was about some Aaron Copland biopic.
