In Bruges
Eastern Promises



I haven't seen the others but I think these two were very highly rated.

And great films. In Bruges I particularly liked...

I really liked the RZA "Man with the Iron Fists"

Modern throwback. It got trashed by critics but I loved it.

I need to rent idiocracy. I don't like catching movies midstream for the first time.
