Movies, Sydney

Night out under the stars

What an awesome night out … after my Chiro session tonight we headed into the city of Sydney, and plonked ourselves down in our seat near Mrs Macquaries Chair, at the Open Air Cinema.  What an exquisite setting it’s in … the huge movie screen sits out over the water in the harbour, with the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge sitting proudly and magnificently in the background, with the occasional bat flying overhead.  Here’s a photo of the setting from their website – just awesome!


And to top it all off we saw the BEST film – “In Bruges“.  A lot of people probably wouldn’t enjoy it (including my Mum) as it includes lots of profanity … and the humour is quite dark … but Colin Farrell was an absolute treat to watch, and we all laughed our heads off at the shocking quips and humour – highly, highly amusing!  And I’ve always been a bit of a fan of Brendan Gleeson, so it was a double treat for me!  The movie was much better than I was expecting, and I’ll be sure to add it to my DVD collection once it’s been released 😀


Here’s one of the earlier parts in the movie that yanked my chain … and one of the few parts with no swearing! 😉

Ken (Brendan Gleeson): Coming up?
Ray (Colin Farrell): What’s up there?
Ken: The view.
Ray: The view of what? The view of down here? I can see that down here.
Ken: Ray, you are about the worst tourist in the whole world.
Ray: Ken, I grew up in Dublin. I love Dublin. If I grew up on a farm, and was retarded, Bruges might impress me but I didn’t, so it doesn’t.

Sick humour, most definitely (it gets much worse) … but awesome viewing on the big screen!  One of Colin Farrell’s best performances in my eyes …

  1. The open air cinema in Sydney sounds amazing Anne! I’m thinking something similar wouldn’t go down too well in Scotland with out weather and all, unfortuantely! : ) I plan to watch “In Bruges” at some point too – good to know you recommend it.

    Sorry for taking a while to answer your question on my blog from earlier this week, but yes, I did use all the thread (Crescent Colours – my fave!) that came with the kit for the Mira LE New Year Fairy… I was surprised at the blues too – they’re really stunning.

    Happy New Year! (yup, I’m late with that too lol – though it’s lovely keeping up with you on Facebook now too!) x

  2. I had never heard of the movie until last weekend, when Colin Farrell won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical – it sounds like a fun film (and the surroundings in Sydney look wonderful!)
