Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri: Movie Review


Brilliantly unsettling drama.
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is one of those movies where you are never allowed to get comfortable. Every time you think you know what it’s about, there’s another twist which turns all of its themes on its head. And that’s impressive for a drama, a drama about police relations, racism, homophobia, bigotry, and a parent’s grief about the death of a child. 2017

Directed by: Martin McDonagh

Screenplay by: Martin McDonagh

Starring: Frances McDormand, Sam Rockwell

Colossal: Movie Review


Unique, interesting and entertaining.
If you have ever wanted to have a discussion about extremely self-destructive people, then you need to watch Colossal. A movie that’s more clever than it has any right to be. Gloria (Anne Hathaway) spends her nights getting drunk and then waking up in the morning (or afternoon) with a hangover unable to remember what happened the night before, and then rinse and repeat. Meanwhile there’s a giant monster terrorizing Seoul, South Korea. Interestingly, these two events are intimately connected. 2017
