Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri #ConTENders 2017

Can Martin McDonagh do no wrong? Or maybe the better question is can Frances McDormand do no wrong? I went into Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri knowing practically nothing.

And I wasn’t let down. What I know now after coming out of the film is that Frances will most certainly win her category at this year’s Oscars, Sam Rockwell will win for Best Supporting Actor, and a two-hour film can transcend its runtime and stay in your mind for days.

UPDATE 4/11/16– Director David Ayer addresses reshoot rumors.
Original Story Below— 
People were worried what the success of Deadpool and its R rating would bring to the superhero genre (me included). The fear that every film would be reactionary to said success worried fans and filmmakers alike. But one thing that no one ever expected what the negative backlash from Batman V. Superman would bring (not even Ben Affleck).

Sad-fleck as Emo Batman
My friend August will undoubtedly hate this, but I myself am at a standstill.
