Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

An interesting film.  It was well shot (cinematography).  The plot is not overly complicated but the movie does have twists and turns.  The film has an interesting tone as well, definitely a “black comedy” as well as a drama.     The movie is an original idea and it is an entertaining film.   I don’t know if it is one of the BEST movies of 2017, but it was definitely a good movie and I would be willing to watch it a second time.

You might even like this film if you are from Missouri (or maybe maybe even North Carolina)


Rape On The Night Shift, Taking Advantage of the Working Poor

This builds off of the Me Too Movement.  There was an investigation done on the Janitorial industry.  It turns out that many of the janitors are women who work at night time and often by themselves.  And believe it or not, the industry has supervisors that take advantage of these workers.  Some of them don’t know their rights and some of them have fear of being deported.   If you are interested in this kind of story then check out the story from Nightline:

It is an interesting story and a good example of investigative journalism.


Pattie Cake$ 2017 Movie Review

A unique and interesting girl version of “8 mile.”   There are definite similarities to 8 Mile (with Eminem) but the film is still unique and stands on its own.        It’s still a rap coming-of-age movie but with a girl as the main lead.

The film was entertaining all throughout.  The films has some twists and turns that will keep you guessing.   In some parts it is kind of formulaic but unless you are a complete movie snob then you won’t be bothered.        The lead girl definitely is the standout.   The supporting actors are also good.

The real joys in the film come from the rapping scenes because you are rooting for the main character so much  (similar to 8 Mile).

Also, I would say the film is very strong in the first hour with a lot happening and with the scenes moving quickly.

If you like movies that have music in them and you like coming-of-age movies then you’ll definitely like Pattie Cake$.

DJ ROBO BISCUIT gives it a 7 out of 10.

Obvious Child and Landline, Interesting Jenny Slate movies

“Obvious Child” and “Landline” are both interesting human films starring Jenny Slate.   They both have to do with an adult woman trying to deal with real life adult problems.   Obvious Child is funnier than Landline.  Landline is more like a drama and Obvious Child is a romantic comedy.   Both films are sincere and earnest.  I recommend Obvious Child over Landline as it is more entertaining.   BUT, if you like films that are about people trying to deal with their problems and you kind of like hipster-y women then Landline might be more entertaining.

Some have called Landline “Blase” whatever that means!     The two films are well-directed and are interesting enough to have you watch all the way through and you also don’t really know what it going to happen!

If you are a fan of Jenny Slate and you just wish you could see her in the movies then these are two very entertaining films.

Brigsby Bear 2017 (Biscuit Review)

Brigsby Bear is a unique and one of a kind film.     I thought I was going to be able to guess the movie based on the trailer but I was totally wrong.

The movie is really interesting and heart-warming.  I give it 2 thumbs up.    It is a comedy in some ways but it truly is more of a thoughtful drama.

If you have a taste for animated movies or kids tv from the 80s then you’ll like this film.

Kyle Mooney was great.  It is good to see new people making films.

If you like Indie movies or movies that are a little bit different then I do recommend Brigsby Bear.
