In Bruges

Action, Sundance, Voldemort 1 Comment »

I saw In Bruges at Sundance in a gorgeous theater in Salt Lake City.  The movie is cute enough with two hit men hiding out in Bruges, Belgium.  I’m a little embarrassed to say that I was most excited when I recognized that the character Ken is played by Brendan Gleeson.  Besides being William Wallace’s best buddy in Braveheart, Brendan Gleeson also plays Mad Eyed Moody in the Harry Potter series.  Imagine how excited I was when the hit men’s boss shows up and it is Lord Voldemort himself.  Finally, a showdown between Mad Eyed Moody and the dark lord.  I won’t tell you what happens, but I will tell you there is also a dwarf in the movie.  Oh and Colin Farrell is in it to.  Luckily (for everyone) Colin Farrell has never been in a Harry Potter movie.

Maid In Manhattan

Girl Movies, Romantic Comedy, Voldemort No Comments »

For some reason, every time I turn on the tv a movie is playing with Ralph Fiennes in it. It also happens that until the last Harry Potter movie comes out, he is going to be Voldemort to me. So every movie is now experienced with Voldemort glasses. For example, Maid in Manhattan is the story of Lord Voldemort falling for a maid while he is running for Senate. He thinks she is wealthy because he saw her wearing someone else’s clothes. Once he finds out that she is really a maid, he hits her with the Avada Kedavra curse.  You don’t mess with Senator Voldemort.  By the way, can something still be a romantic comedy if nothing funny happens?
