Shit Boyfriend Makes Me Watch vol 2

Holy crap. I logged on this morning and saw this...

That's right. My dad is now a reader of Jumble Mash. I called him up and said, "so ugh, what do you think about it?" I was bracing myself for, "You curse a lot." or something of the sort, but instead he said, "It's a great blog and you are a good writer. I may start one of my own." HA! My dad is going to be a blogger. Gotta love it.

Anyways, back to the real reason for posting.

This week's movie was In Bruges. First of all, let me just say...Colin Farrell and his sexy eyebrows. Yummy.

I actually ended up really liking this British comedy. And I'm a sucker for an accent.

Colin Farrell plays along side Brendan Gleeson as two hitmen in hiding. It cracks me up because Farrell is constantly complaining about being In Bruges and voices his negative opinion about the place throughout the movie.

But anyways, being in hiding Farrell (Ray) and Gleeson (Ken) really start to question themselves. During Ray's last job, he accidentally killed a little boy which is the reason they have been sent into hiding.

Ray's guilt about the situation pretty much eats at him even though he is trying to move on and then Ken is ordered to kill Ray because what he did was unforgivable, according to their employer.

As Ken is walking up behind Ray to kill him, he realizes that Ray is in the process of killing himself. Ken, then realizes that he cares about Ray too much to follow through with the orders. He warns Ray and convinces him to leave the city.

Ray is arrested for assaulting a couple and sent back to Bruges...where his employer is now hunting him.

I really don't want to give away too much of the ending because the ending it AWESOME but I will say that Ken puts Ray's life ahead of his own while trying to save him.

This movie is full of bad language and violence so watch it when the kiddies aren't around, but be sure to watch it. It's funny, adventurous, and exciting. The plot sounds more depressing than it actually is.

My rating?

I love Colin Farrell. LOVE him. Especially in American Outlaws. He's a sexy Jesse James. ;)

P.S. How funny that your dad is a reader? When I found out my mom was reading mine, I got super-self conscious about it. I'm over it now.
