Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017)

Rated: R - Runtime: 115 min
tesg's Rating: Three stars (out of four)

Watch this, then go home and watch Winter's Bone.  As you wonder to yourself if rural Missouri could possibly be like this, allow me to assure you that it is.  It absolutely is.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017)

Rated: PG-13 - Runtime: 152 excruciatingly long minutes
tesg's Rating: One and one half stars (out of four)

God this was boring.  No fun at all.  WAY too long.  This damn thing felt longer than that Blade Runner sequel.    It wasn't dumb, but it was painful.

Every time Kylo Ren appears on screen, I SO want to hear Morrissey music playing under him.

Coco (2017)

Rated: PG - Runtime: 109 min
tesg's Rating: Three stars (out of four)

This is one of Pixar's better original efforts recently.  They do a good job of laying out the whole Day of the Dead nonsense and providing beautiful and colorful visuals.  The story pretty much follows the Pixar template but has more of their classic wit than I remember in more recent efforts.  But when it goes dark, it goes dark.

They could have wrapped it up about ten minutes before they did, but Pixar always seems to feel the need to stretch out endings for some dumb reason.
