Soo! It's time to watch The Departed! And time to discuss it as well!

You need to watch the movie by July 30th! But by no means does that mean we have to stop discussing it by then!

Did you see any similar themes between book and movie? Favorite Character from the movie? Lets talk about it!

Okay, just watched it all the way through yesterday.

I think I'm still processing it, but one of the things I see that's similar to the book is the idea of a holder of power who ultimately loses it. Brodie in the book seemed a lot like Jack Nicholson's character. Both had control over a specific set of people, both were bad souls, both were fighting to assert themselves as "top dog" and both met their end.

Both were mysteries in their own fashion.

There's also the obvious parallel that the cops are the ones that drive the action of the story. I haven't finished the book yet, but I'm willing to bet that everything comes out all right in the end - at least for the cops. They didn't in the movie. I'd like to register an opinion on that, but I can't find one right now, haha!

I'm gonna finish the book and come back to this, though.
