3 Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is my favorite film of the year.

I liked this movie, but had some reservations. I think it would've been better if that dude hadn't shown up at Mildred's store the first time.

Speaking as someone who loved the movie it was an extraneous scene. I think cutting it wouldn't have detracted from emotional investment in the plot (To a lesser degree I felt similarly about the flashback scene in Wind River, though that scene was probably more effective). My only other complaint had to do with some of the supporting cast being sidelined a bit (Peter Dinklage did well with his four scenes, though it's too bad he couldn't have been there longer).

Would you agree with Goldblum, John and I about Dixon's arc?

Sam Rockwell is always the best part of any movie. I loved him in this. He's great with deadpan comedy, and he's also wonderful when it comes to disappearing into a character. Yeah, Dixon's arc was the movie's most compelling part, bar none.

It's no In Bruges-- I found its lack of focus to be a bit frustrating at times-- but overall it's a fine movie. Top ten of the year for sure.

Pan's Labyrinth is exactly the type of movie that makes me dislike Disney so much. Del Toro is so clearly passionate about the (beautiful) product that he's putting on screen, and that love of both film and the world he creates really shines. Not a perfect film or anything, as I thought the two stories didn't mesh as well as they could've, but I think I really appreciate it even more than I would've before, since I've been thinking about Disney in the context of both Star Wars and buying Fox, as of late.

Wish I hadn't had to wait for the movie to buffer so much on the train though, that was mad annoying.

I should probably catch this before The Shape of Water.

I hadn't seen it before but it's a really strong film (although a bit disjointed as I mentioned). It's also streaming on Amazon Prime which makes it easy to watch if you have that.

Yeah, I blind bought a DVD copy too so I'm set either way when I get around to it. Maybe I'll check it out on Thursday night depending on how my schedule is.

Yeah, I had been meaning to see it for quite a while and am definitely glad I got around to doing so before I see The Shape of Water.
