See, that's a shame.

Not that I'm much of a Scorsese fan (and I've at least partially despised everything he's done with DiCaprio), but there's so little that's noteworthy coming to Australian cinemas over the next month that I convinced myself I should look forward to The Departed.

This means that Little Miss Freakin Sunshine is now my most eagerly awaited trip to the cinema over the next few weeks. And I'm hardly eager about that one at all.

A pity. The trailer made it look rather snazzy.

How is Mr. DiCaprio?

He's actually very good. I had hardly any objections to the acting — it's the structure and pacing that goes seriously wrong. If I can rustle up a long review I will.

Very interesting, because the advance word is phenomenal. I wasn't looking forward to this at all earlier this year, but now it's at the top of my list.

Yeah, I just don't get the buzz. Very split reaction at the screening I went to — some love, and some real vitriol. I was in the middle... I hope you guys like it.

Great mised opportunities part 312. Leo talking to psychiatrist about his jail time: "What, you wanna hear all about the showers?"

The audience: "Yes! YES!"

I'll be checkin' out the DVD deleted scenes, just in case.
