In Bruges

After having missed In Bruges during my last week's travels, I decided to watch the movie today. It was only showing in one location in the whole of Triangle, a tiny theater in a Chapel Hill strip mall.

After a delightful 55-minute drive through some country roads, I caught the matinee show. Not without an adventure, as they did not accept plastic, making me run to the drug store in the mall to buy a bottle of Coke to get some cash back.

All's well that ends well.

The film turned out to be a decided meh. Not too bad or anything, and it had a few good laughs, but it could have been sharper and faster at times. Having driven to see it for as much time as the movie itself lasted, I wouldn't say it was a waste of time, but it could have been better.
