7TH Annual Monster Entertainment Awards- The Nominees

Monster Entertainment Awards 7For the first time in the history of the Monster Entertainment Awards, we will be hosting the movie side of the awards. After all, I once watched 366 movies, once a day, for 366 days in 2016. I think that is a pretty incredible accomplishment if you ask me, but with that being said, we are happy to do it here. Here we have some of your favorite categories like Movie Of The Year, Superhero Movie Of The Year, and Horror Film Of The Year to name a few, but we also have some new ones. We sadly got rid of Netflix show of the year because there is just too many of them and we also got rid of superhero show of the year because Netflix dominates. Now I want to remind you that not every single film made makes it on here because we are not the Oscars and we care for the movies that the everyday man/woman cares about. One thing that I did want to add is that we have a new category this year and it’s called The Tommy Wiseau Worst Movie Of The Year Award which of course goes to the worst film of 2017. Now I also want to remind everyone that you have until March 13TH to vote and decide who you want to win so choose wisely.

Movie Of The Week: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017)

billboardsHalloween is long behind us so I figured it was time to reintroduce the Movie Of The Week post while we wait on a decision for the future. There are a lot of great movies on the horizon and I want to cover them for this blog. This week’s film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is one of those films that peaked my interest for it’s unique title and for the caliber of the cast contained within the film. Frances McDormand (Fargo) plays Mildred, a mother who is not happy whatsoever with the local authorities for not solving her daughters murder case. So to get on their case and get them moving, she decides to take out ads on three billboards outside her town that will challenge the law to get off their behinds and solve case. The film also stars Woody Harrelson (No Country For Old Men) as Chief Willoughby, Sam Rockwell (The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy) as Dixon, Caleb Landry Jones (Get Out) as Red Wellby, Kerry Condon (Avengers: Age Of Ultron) as Pamela, Darrell Britt-Gibson (Keanu) as Jerome, Abbie Cornish (Sucker Punch) as Anne, Lucas Hedges (Manchester By The Sea) as Robbie, Zeljko Ivanek (Argo) as Cedric, Peter Dinklage (Game Of Thrones) as James, Brendan Sexton III (Empire Records) as Crop-Haired Guy, and the film was directed by Martin McDonagh (In Bruges). 

three-billboards-outside-ebbing-missouri-movie-3This was an excellent film that just had so many emotions to it and just had so many talking points. First of all, the acting was absolutely superb from way too many people to list in this blog, but you already know that you get amazing performances from McDormand, Harrelson, Rockwell, and Dinklage to name a few. Frances McDormand had the uneasy task of balancing out a character who is tough and a bad ass, but she is also vulnerable because all she wants is for them to solve the case. Sam Rockwell does a terrific job playing your typical backwater cop from a small southern-esque town who doesn’t know any better until something (I can’t tell you what) shows him the way. The second thing that was amazing about the film was the writing because this story kicked ass. You think that it’s going the way you would want it to go until it throws you a curve ball that takes the story in a darker place. There were so many glimmers of hope in the film that were just taken to a completely different place that I was amazed that it worked. The third thing that I loved about the film were the dynamic of the characters and the overall themes because each one was so unique to the story in how it progressed into a moral of no matter how dark things get, sometimes the people you are going against can turn out to be the ones you need. That was the constant theme of the film was redemption because it’s a learning experience for sure. The last thing is the cinematography which was just masterful from shot to shot. This is definitely a film worth checking out if you are a fan of great stories, actors, etc. I am going to give the film an A- for a final grade.
