[quote]Who would you have preferred over Byrne?
I can't even say. He just didn't do it for me. I just found the film much less entertaining/compelling/witty than other Coen Bros. films. I've seen some on here saying it's their favorite one and I just didn't get that feeling upon view...

I've always found the Prohibition-era mob genre fascinating (e.g. Boardwalk Empire is my favorite current show on TV), and I'm a big Coen Bros. fan.
That said, I was very unimpressed with Miller's Crossing and found the film barely entertaining. I didn't like the casting choices, in particular...

No shot. The Departed has several deficiencies, from the gaping plot holes, cheesy aspects (the Costello exchange with the Chinese), to the sloppy editing where portions of the dialogue were changed from the character clearly saying "F*ck" to s...

| Movie/TV Board|| re: The Departed - Jwodie on 12/19/13 at 9:11 am|
I really enjoy The Departed and I'm a big fan of Scorsese, Leo, Jack, etc., but IMO the acclaim for this movie is unwarranted. But that's probably because I hold it to the standard of Goodfellas and Casino, to which it falls way short IMO....

Absolutely this. My favorite show on television for 3+ years running is Boardwalk Empire, which is every bit as good as The Sopranos, The Wire, etc. IMO.
Add to it still running shows like GoT and even Girls (...

Tough call as I'm facing the same decision in one league. Crabtree has the much higher ceiling due to Flynn QB'ing GB but Nelson the higher floor. I'm probably rolling with Nelson but don't feel great about it......

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Playoff flex quandary due to TNF - input and WHIR - Jwodie on 12/12/13 at 11:02 am|
Standard scoring league. Forte and Vereen locked in at RB1 and 2.
Flex options are:
2. Woodhead (TNF)
3. Joique Bell (MNF)
The problem is obvious because of when each play. My gut is AD is out this week or is a full blown GTD, meaning I probably can't trust him. Regardless, we won...

I don't see how he's overrated whatsoever. He's in his second year and was much less heralded than his draft mates RG3 and Luck, but of whom are having major sophomore slumps while Wilson is improving rapidly.
Dude's a baller plain and simple....
