I'm often something of a Johnny Depp defender

but he was all wrong for "Black Mass"- one of those performances where you're never not aware you're watching an actor rather than a real person (and yeah, the makeup didn't help). Some of the more emotional aspects (like the business w/ his son) just didn't seem earned. It was fairly entertaining but still pretty disappointing. And though I thought that "secret recipe" was lame the first time I saw it in the trailer but never realized it was a rip off of the "Goodfellas" scene but oh yeah, it completely is.
Have never heard of that Stereolab comp. Any overlap with the "Switched On" series? That series generally doesn't include my favorite stuff by them. "Refried Ectoplasm" is the only one that really stands up with their better albums IMO. Actually just listened to "Dots & Loops" myself and liked it more than I remembered but still consider it pretty overrated (of the later "digital" era stuff, "Sound Dust" is definitely my favorite album).
