In Bruges

Something a bit different...

(Edit) 26/10/2008

This is a really fresh, nicely-crafted film. Interesting story, brilliant script, great actors having fun with their characters, and plenty of laughs (from some rather dark places) along the way. It's all set amongst the beautifully austere and fairytale-like setting of Bruges. It's about crooks, hitmen and other strange characters in the dark corners of society. It builds towards a confrontational ending. And it really delivers. Check it out if you're bored with the usual guff that always seems to let you down. It's a lot of fun.

Deja Vu

Preposterously good Saturday night entertainment

(Edit) 26/10/2008

Bruckheimer + Tony Scott + Denzel Washington = ENTERTAINMENT!

You probably know the drill by now when this lot gets together – ridiculous and implausible plots, rapid edits, great effects, chases, intrigue, explosions, twists, turns, the lot. I won't go into details of the story, save to say it comes straight out of Hollywood's big plotline slot machine. This time the wheel's have stopped on Terrorism / Cops / Timetravel / Desire.

And I for one loved it, it's absoutely perfect for what it is – a big, loud and frequently laughable ball of cinematic escapism. It's got Denzel Washington in it, doing what he does best, and you even get the enigmatic Jim Caviezel as a bad guy. What more could you want? If Will Smith had got the gig instead of Denzel it would have been awful. Know what I mean?
