St. Patrick’s Day is more than just a day to drink beer and wear all green, it is an important day to celebrate the rich culture of Ireland. To get you in the mood to celebrate this wonderful holiday, take time to watch some of these movies.
1. In Bruges
One of the greatest slept on movies starring Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson will have you in awe after you watch the plot unfold during the course of the film. The movie involves two Irishmen who are out in Belgium, hiding from their boss. Did I mention that they were both hitmen? If you’re the type who likes dark humor, with bits of violence, this movie is definitely for you.
A movie so terrible which actually makes it great in a way. Starring Jennifer Aniston, early on in her career, it is amazing to see how much film has gone in the past couple of decades. Sure, it goes off to mock Irish culture in a way, but where else are you going to find an amazing movie about leprechauns? Fans of cult classics and horror should go out of their way to find a way to watch this piece of movie history.
3. The Boondock Saints
What sort of list of Irish movies would be complete if it didn’t involve The Boondock Saints? An all out crime thriller filled with violence, is sure to entertain fans of the genre. Dark and gritty, the film stunts an impressive cast early on in their careers. Filled with outrageous and unforgettable scenes, this is a movie you should try and watch at least once, regardless if it’s in anticipation for St. Patrick’s Day or not.
