Wise Guy Crowdfunding Change To Marty’s Movie

Here’s a wise guy who is crowdfunding to mess with an Oscar winning picture.

Director Martin Scorsese won the Academy Award for best director for his movie “The Departed.” As the article notes, it was so good that even Mark Wahlberg to an acting nomination.


But this dude on Kickstarter is bothered by the rat symbolism in the last scene.

So, he wants you to give him $4,506 so he can buy a Blu Ray player, hire a VFX editor and delete the actual rat that skitters across Matt Damon’s balcony.

For $70 you get the Blu Ray disc sans rodent.

Don’t you have better things to do with your dough?
