The Ten Best Movies of 2008

Mittwoch, Januar 7th, 2009

Everybody loves Top Ten Lists, right? You can never get enough of them, correct? If you read one to the end, you want nothing more than start looking at the next one, or am I wrong? In any case, I like Top Ten (or basically any other number) Lists. I know they are silly and arbitrary and highly subjective, but they are still fun – even if one just reads them to poke fun at the author(s). So to start my own habitual list-making off, I hereby offer you the TEN BEST MOVIES OF 2008!

Minute Movie Review – In Bruges

Montag, Juni 16th, 2008

Review:

After a hit in London, an Irish hit man and his mentor are send to Bruges until things blow over. The old man likes the city, with its medieval old town and historic places, but the young killer is only interested in a girl he just met, while he struggles with what he has done. But before long, boring Bruges is the least of his problems. The film is a dark and bloody comedy. It is beautifully shot, features great dialogue and surprisingly good acting from lead Colin Farrell and one of the most beautiful scores in recent memory. Simply put: I can’t remember the last time I had so much fun at the movies. Watch this!

Random Observations:

In Bruges at imdb.com

The movie is something of a Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire reunion: Brendan Gleeson, Ralph Fiennes and Clémence Poésy all star.

Watching this movie really made me want to visit Bruges. Even if the movie says little positive about the city. But it’s a fairytale place!
