somebody dies in a movie THEN they survived afterwards "summed up every MOVIE EVER"....


David Lounsberry - 2018-01-15
I absolutely did not want the movie to end... I would have been ok with another hour, seriously...


Armand D - 2018-01-15
I loved the ending :3


Wyatt Fortin - 2018-01-15

Kamil Krawczak - 2018-01-14
best movie in the long time


Sarah Flynn - 2018-01-14
Seeing this tonight, it won a ton of Golden Globes so I’m looking forward to it! Always watch your reviews before I see a movie!

There will be no more cunts in this household!
What, are you leaving?


Prayash Koirala - 2018-01-14
I disagree.
Spoiler Alert






...Movies nowadays just lack realism....Now we can decide if they get jailed,they get killed in the act,or they get away with it...for me it is either of the first 2.I wont choose the 3rd becoz they're still committing a crime.Moreover I liked this movie becoz when chief was about to die...I just desperately wanted to reach out to him...saying Evrything is gonna be ok just hold on hold on!!!When he killed himself I shed a tear myself.... Dixon was my fav character as his transition was awesome to watch....Even though he was burned ...beaten....he grew past from that angry self....At first u feel the heat betwn chief and dixon....however after chief passes away....U see the Respect and Lookin upto that dix had 4 the chief....As evryone keeps on hating him chief's departing words like "Seek love be kind u r a gud man u just had bad luck" just changes him as a human being...justt sayin their bond was amazing and the movie was awesome...surely oscarworthy.

love you

Either Frances McDormand, Sally Hawkins and Saoirse Ronan are my bets for Best Actress for the Oscar this year. I can't choose between those 3. They are all good!

Spot on re: the unpredictability factor.


Alex Greentoes - 2018-01-14
Just seen this film and I can't fault it, highly reccomend!


stephen lally - 2018-01-13
I agree with you about the end of the film but other than that I loved it


Adriano Vazquez - 2018-01-13
It's a brilliant film in parts. Great acting, some wonderful dialogue, heartbreaking moments and a teriffic ending. But, anyone that tells me that this is at the quality of In Bruges is crazy. That film has a perfect screenplay and all of the elements surrounding it support it beautifully. Three billboards has pacing problems in the first half, abbie Cornish can't seem to decide which accent her character is supposed to have, there are contrived moments that seem incredibly lazy, sam rockwell gives a great performance for an unnecessarily racist character with an unbelievable arc that is completely unearned. It doesn't seem to know what to do with its black characters in a film with racist characters, and it doesn't even try to give those characters a voice. The director Martin McDonagh never does more than one draft in his screenplays and it shows. Because this film needed at least two rewrites to be at the level of In Bruges


Galantski - 2018-01-13
How can Frances McDormand be better than she was as Marge in Fargo? That's not possible. Mr. Stuckmann, I think you need to do a lot count for me.


Richard Hawkins - 2018-01-13
On the ending (Spoilers)

This is how I saw the movie. This is not a plot driven movie, it is a character driven movie. If it were a plot driven movie it would have been a whodunit, or an under dog sticking it to the man movie. The resolution would have been something along those lines. The resolution would have been a plot point.

However, the resolution was a character resolution. The two people who were at polar opposites with fixed ideas about what should happen next, (Mildred was the first to act and Dixon was the first to react) at the beginning were in complete agreement at the end. But actually they were in agreement that they didn't know what they wanted to do next. Essentially they had helped to redeem and save each other. Rockwell's character had a shotgun in his face when he was on the phone. If Mildred had said she didn't want company on the trip, that could have been the end of it for him.

Do I think they would kill the guy? My first feelings leaving the theater were yes, when Mildred realises he was the same guy that came in the shop she would. However, I'm not sure now. I think the fact that neither knew what they wanted to do was enough. Rockwell had remorse at throwing the guy out of the window and Mildred had the line "Anger begets greater anger," buzzing round her head. She'd stopped short of hitting her ex with a bottle. Also she'd seen the result of her anger on Dixon.

Chris, I would give this movie an A+ any day of the week. Just sawrit today, mesmerising.


Billy Boid - 2018-01-12
One more scene? Seriously? The film was about 5 scenes too long as it was


whutzat - 2018-01-12
So you mean it's not P.C.?
....I"M THERE!!!


hendra bp - 2018-01-12
This movie is just sooo sad i can't bare to watch it😭😭 sad but beautiful


Mescaline1337 - 2018-01-12
Great review! But I thought the ending was perfect. One more scene and it could be ruined, not the whole movie of course because it was pure genius but not every story needs an ending that is expected of it. spoiler coming up: I thought the ending was great, long enough to know that the characters were not sure what they wanted to do but long enough to not show everything and leave a little bit of mystery. I think its a movie that i can not forget, maybe if the ending was more clear I did. The movie starts in the middle of a story, and therefore the ending was a perfect fit.


Ben Lyons - 2018-01-12
Finally got a showing of this movie in our town! It was amazing and we loved it! As for the ending, i felt completely satisfied one scene before the ending, when they drove past the billboards, i was good with the ending, but we also got that bonus fantastic 1 min dialogue with them in the car that even more so solidified my love for this great film. So fortunately for me, the one negative you had ends up not bothering me! A+ movie!!


Brian Gervais - 2018-01-11
great movie, but i dont think you emphasized the dark aspect enough. But maybe its better going into the movie not expecting it


Loungefly37 - 2018-01-11
I'd love to see Chris review Hedwig and the Angry Inch (2001). Older movie I know but one of my favorites.


B Charron - 2018-01-11
**Yeah, I also loved the movie except i wanted more closure at the ending. Perhaps, they will release an extended version of this movie and include a final unshown scene. Alternatively, maybe they will release a surprise sequel to this movie. What do you guys think**


Fawn Whisperer - 2018-01-10
Man I saw something completely different when I watched this movie... I didn't see a "complacent, hypocritical town" that she's taking on... I saw pretty much all "good guys" (in better and worse shades, that is) who all want to same thing but all deal with grief and powerlessness differently, and ultimately they realize they are all taking things out on each other when they should be uniting against the actual enemies... I never saw the town as the problem. They cared about what happened, too.


Gustavo Curiel Mendiola - 2018-01-10
I fell the same at the end, just one more scene pleas!


Ange Alexiel - 2018-01-10
Frances Mcdormand is The best actress of the entire movie industrie from me... loved this movie , as much as Fargo .;)


LaurenLovesMovies - 2018-01-09
I'll be honest, I don't always agree with your opinions in some of your reviews, Chris, but you hit the nail on the head with this film. Nice job! Saw the film and absolutely loved it!


jakob duarte - 2018-01-09
the ending is like WTF?!?


Ivan Jiang - 2018-01-09
I agree with the ambiguous endings part.


mastersleib - 2018-01-08
Martin McDonagh is great.


Alex Toira - 2018-01-08

DJM3Z - 2018-01-08
It deserved an A+, I do agree about the ending but it was great the way it ended.


Ricky Rushton - 2018-01-08
Love this.

"Hey Fuckhead!"


Neon Movie Reviews - 2018-01-08
I would love to talk to you about this film Chris, I fucking hated it so so so so so much. Just flat out one of the laziest worst movies I’ve ever had the displeasure of seeing. I respect the hell out of your reviews but man...this one...yikes.


Mairead Malesco - 2018-01-08
Mildred Hayes is quite possibly Fran's best character since Marge Gunderson


Isaac Christenson - 2018-01-08
I'm just here after the Golden Globes


The law84 - 2018-01-07
3 billboards 3 story arcs francis mcdormands character sam rockwells character woody harrelson's character


Clarissa R - 2018-01-07
I completely agree on the ending. I was so into wanting to see what happened next and then I was like, "wait, it's over?".


stephen gilyeat - 2018-01-07
i loved this movie


Callan's reviews - 2018-01-06
Review in Bruges


Phil Huang - 2018-01-06
I wholeheartedly agree.. even though the film ending was good there is an overwhelming sense that I needed the movie to go on for another 5 minutes...


Leo T - 2018-01-06
I really enjoyed this movie a lot.


Jesse Greenwood - 2018-01-05
I thought this movie was propaganda and turned it off after 30 minutes.


james ferguson - 2018-01-05
Warning this movie is diabolically shit dont watch this fucking movie just suicides and misery from beginning to end no storyline at all and one of those bull shit ending where nothing happens nothing fucking gets solved worst fucking movie ever dont see its advertised as a comedy action but its a fucking misery shit box from beging to end dont watch this shit. also this movie is popular as fuck on rotten tomatoes for some fucking reason because everyone loves misery because they must live in a miserable life like a bunch of wankers. i would rather eat 20kg of albanina sugar-free gummi bears and have endless chronic shits for the rest of my life than watch this shit diabolically bad ending movie.
just a heads up dont watch this shit nothing gets solved complete crap and misery from begging to end


Dante Von Sydow - 2018-01-05
His thing about the ending, that is why McDonagh ended the film like that. He wanted you to want more but to also think about what might have happened.


fernando martin - 2018-01-05
Chris, please review Netflix's Dark!


James Handley - 2018-01-05
francés for the oscar wln
