Today I'm watching In Bruges for the second time. It's dark but funny, and beautiful to look at. Bruges must be about the best preserved medieval city in Europe. How did it escape destruction in WWII? (I don't know anything about what happened in Belgium.)

I think the Germans just skipped Belgium in WW2 and rolled straight into France...

Yesterday I watched Hairspray, which I totally love. It's a feel good movie and is one of my most favourite musicals.

I also watched No Country For Old Men, I don't really like violent movies that much. This one was OK, but the ending was rubbish and I'm not keen on movies about murder.
