Twelve Days of Questionable Xmas #6 – In Bruges

In Bruges is one of my favorite films of all time. I love this film dearly. Like, to little bitty pieces. It makes this list because it happens to take place at Christmas for part of it. (the part with the hookers and the little person actor, but still Christmas) Colin Farrell is so goddamn good in this flick. He plays an assassin who killed the wrong person. That person happened to be a small child. As you can imagine, his life spirals out of control after that event. He is sent, with his friend/partner, to the city of Bruges in Belgium. And he hates it. A lot. The rest of the film is a darkly comedic adventure through the life of a man who knows he has no future. It is touching, hilarious and incredibly sad, all at the same. It is beautiful and well worth your time at the holidays or otherwise.

Dean DeFalco

Creator of Websites, editor of content, wearer of vests. This man is said to be "The Jack of All Trades".  Dean has his hands in most parts of the website one way or another. The original incarnation of Geekade, "G33k Life", was Dean's brainchild. While Dean can be found on a number of shows like when he was the former co-host of the Stone Age Gamer Podcast or the current host Vest and Friends or talking about video games on YouTube and Twitch, he is the guy behind the scenes making sure that the site does everything it's supposed to every one else can do their job. There's not a problem he can't solve.....or at least punch and scream at until it doesn't exist anymore.
