Hello everyone, and welcome to 111 Archer Avenue. What started as a film review blog has become my online judgment forum. I will review the occasional movie or DVD, post an interesting trailer, critique a newly-read book, talk about sports, and share my thoughts and opinions on random issues.

Trailer - The Guard

Director: John Michael McDonagh
Starring: Brendan Gleeson, Don Cheadle, Liam Cunningham
Year: 2011

I almost wrote this film off before seeing the trailer. I thought it would just be the typical black/white buddy cop movie that we've seen a thousand times, only set in Ireland. But I was surprised at how funny some of the old jokes were coming from Gleeson (Braveheart, Troy), and how original the film looked as a whole. Might be worth the watch.
