is quite a strange film. But also quite a good film.
Fullerov: Two line reviews.
but i really enjoyed it.
Ken: Harry, let's face it. And I'm not being funny. I mean no disrespect, but you're a cunt. You're a cunt now, and you've always been a cunt. And the only thing that's going to change is that you're going to be an even bigger cunt. Maybe have some more cunt kids.
Harry: Leave my kids fucking out of it! What have they done? You fucking retract that bit about my cunt fucking kids!
Ken: I retract that bit about your cunt fucking kids.
it almost has as many classic lines as Lebowski
"If i grew up on a farm and was retarded, Bruges might impress me"
"one gay beer for my friend, one normal beer for me because i am normal"
is always gonna be funny
Took me by complete surprise as the trailer made it look a bit dull but it's genuinely a very funny, very dark and very moving film.
Farrell is bloody fantastic as are Gleeson and Fiennes.
perfectly balanced, way quotable, cool atmosphere, racist midgets, sorted.
this is an outstandingly shit film. the dialogue is awful, the plot is DIRE, the acting is even worse and they all end up dead - great.
one of the worst films i have ever, ever seen.
i really hope i look like a fool here in missing your sarcasm, but srsly.
from an equally brilliant play. well written, GREAT dialogue and marvellously executed.
so many obvious plotlines that are so badly set up that they should have little boxes popping up on the screen every time they put a pregnant woman into the equation ("this woman will be involved in a shoot-out") or when a train gets stopped ("this man will have to return to a situation he thought he was escaping").
i hated every fucking second of it.
I also would quite like to visit Bruges now.
Missing the point.
the bit with 'ragland road' was pretty powerful. and clemence poesy is my new girl crush.
Seen it three or four times, the trailer made it look like the worst film ever but I just can't get over how brilliant the dialogue is and how well it's acted, especially considering it's Colin Farrell.
"YOU'RE a fucking inanimate object!"
I liked how it went from being a light hearted buddy movie into this black as night, ultra violent no happy ending fest
WAS NO ONE PUT OFF BY THE BAD ACTING/SCRIPT/PLOT???
BECAUSE IT WAS REALLY GOOD AND STUFF???
taste is subjective though, but i really did think it was really good. Did you just watch the trailer? That made it look like it was going to be mega awful.
But it's cool that you think that. In fairness a couple of times the script was a bit "eeeeeeee" but I thought the acting was great
these are NOT good things.
Ralph Fiennes approximating Ben Kingsley - god awful.
Colin Farrel trying to be 'funny' god god god awful
The whole set up was overly contrived and awful.
