Ok, I saw this in the theatres and have to say this is some of his finest work. So far he's been snubbed the past five years when it came to Best Director. I thought "The Aviator" was more of an epic-biopic, and beautiful and engaging to watch. Now Million Dollar Baby was good, bur not Best Director worthy. So anyway, "The Departed", an excellent film, and really breaks away from Scorses's typical mob film. It's a REAL departure, no pun intended. I want it on Blu-Ray because, well I can do Blu-Ray. But I noticed that the TCM bio of Martin Scorses is missing from the Blu-Ray disk, yet it's on the regular DVD version. For the size capabilities of Blu-Ray and HD-DVD, they did'nt include that feature, and it makes me scheptical about spending 15 dollars more for HD.

It's actually only about $7 more than the normal widescreen edition so I would have to say that the picture and sound benefits of blu ray outweigh your concerns. I just received the blu ray version from amazon yesterday and it blew me away.

FYI, Million Dollar Baby is directed by Clint Eastwood.

I never said it wasn't. I merely stated that this was better than Million Dollar Baby. The reference was that when "Millinion Dollar" and "The Aviator" were up for Best Picture, I thought "The Aviator was better.

FYI when I just bought this movie in blue-ray from amazon and noticed it was dubed when the women cursed.
