What To Watch On Netflix: In Bruges

in bruges movieIn Bruges (thriller/dark comedy – 2008) 9 out of 10 stars (9/10)

Netflix provides recommendations based on your previous viewings and ratings. We try to watch videos that have ratings greater than 3 out of 5 stars and we’re noticing our selection is becoming limited for certain genres, such as science fiction, action, and thrillers.

In Bruges has a 3.5/5 rating on Netflix and Roger Ebert gave it his highest rating, so we decided to watch it; we’re glad we did – it’s a great movie.

In Bruges is about (click link there for wiki entry) a couple criminals in hiding (in Bruges, Belgium), waiting for their boss to call with further instructions after their last job didn’t go well. It’s violent, interesting, emotional, and laugh-out-loud funny. Highly recommended.

Netflix Complaint: During the last 20 minutes of the movie the video paused a lot – every few minutes. I had to rewind it 30 seconds or just wait a minute or so before the video started again. It was very annoying – all during the climax too. I suspect the Netflix servers were being overloaded since it was around 10:30pm Atlantic, which is probably prime viewing time on a Saturday night; but still, it was distracting and frustrating.

Anyone see In Bruges? What do you think of it?

I saw it last night and it’s not what I expected. It’s about hired killers who are told to hide out in a nowhere town in Belgium after a hit goes bad. It didn’t grab me at first because I was annoyed by the presence Colin Farrell. But I got more into it as it went on, and by the time I got to the end, I thought, “Wow, that was good.”

Anyway, just curious if anyone has seen it.
