Still had some euro's left on a cinema giftcard, so decided to spend em this morning.

Hotel Artemis (2018): Jodie Foster & Dave Bautista run Hotel Artemis, a clandestine hospital for criminals in LA where the main rule is no fighting & killing among the 'patients'. Obviously rules and criminals don't go well together... Popcorn action thriller, but surprisingly fun and not nearly as John Wick-like as the premise suggests. Foster's great and has nice chemistry with Bautista. There's an all too brief cameo by Jeff Goldblum, and Sofia Boutella is in fear of becoming typecast as a kick-ass lethal girl but she does it so well. I really enjoyed it. 7+/10

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) - 9/10. Martin McDonagh finally directs a real movie! Yay! This one has real characters, and you can tell they're real because they're capable of change. Frances McDormand is on her way to another Oscar nom. Woody Harrelson is beyond amazing; Sam Rockwell shows what he really can do. And all the secondary characters are so well cast it's frightening. This film uses flashbacks better than just about any film I can think of in the last decade-and-a-half. Some of the plotting is off, though: for example, a cop goes rogue and throws a citizen out a window and all he gets is the loss of his job. No criminal penalties? No civil penalties? There should have been something in the script to answer such questions. On the other hand, the several twists and reversals in the story work well. It all maybe goes a little long at the end, but I really enjoyed this piece.

Saw it again yesterday. I'm completely on board with DJ's review.

The french title is the worst, though: "Three Billboards : Les Panneaux de la Vengeance"
Literally: "Three Billboards: Revenge Billboards"

Hahaha! Well, you know, those Frenchies can't be expected to know what a "Billboard" is. I mean, they're totally ignorant of American culture, right?



That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.
