Just watched Infernal Affairs
, the Hong Kong original of The Departed
. Not only do I continue to fail to understand the point of remakes, but I especially don't understand why you'd remake a movie just to make it worse
Elsewhere in the Netflix rodeo:Nacho Libre
was briefly the worst movie I'd ever seen, with precisely one redeeming moment ("I hate all the orphans in the world!"). Then I saw Ripley's Game
. Corpse Bride
was just bizarre, and The Breakup
But on the plus side: Saved!
was much, much better than expected, and Weekend
is quite good too, in that nice Goddardian sort of way.
