    Black Mass premiered tonight on HBO. In case you didn't see it in the theaters Depp portrays Whitey Bulger as one scary motherfucker. Makes Joe Pesci look cartoonish in Goofellas and Casino. Apparently in real life Whitey didn't curse unless he was with his own people but there is no doubt he personally murdered many of the people portrayed in the film. He was probably even more sinister than the way he was portrayed. Depp is a terrific actor. He should take more of these roles instead of the fantasy roles he normally takes.

    Depp was great. The movie sucks. Watch The Departed instead.

    I thought the movie sucked. The only reason to watch was Depp. To each their own, but I was freakin bored out of my mind during that movie.

    I can't remember. It was a movie that you kinda forget when you walk out of the movie.

    "Black Mass" was 2 hours of the same 20 minute story arc repeated over and over again. Very lazy story telling, I expected much more from the Whitey Bulger story...

    Watched it last night too. It was pretty good. Iove gangster movies. I do think it could've been a lot better.

    I thought the title, Black Mass on HBO, was about Robin getting a show there.

    Saw it in the theater, was pretty disappointed. That said, I'll probably watch again.
