    Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    ★★★★

    Martin McDonagh's third feature film lives up to his previous two, In Bruges & Seven Psychopaths, by offering up another shot of darkly comic drama. It's his most ambitious film yet and it's not without some grievances in seeing his writing style stretched out further than we've seen so far.

    However for the most part I found this film to be riveting. There' s a precariously balancing tone on hand which switches between comedy and tragedy at a drop of a…

    La La Land

    ★★★★½

    Don't mind me, just adding another glowing La La Land review to the neverending pile. This is a very grand film in every sense of the word and it stands out in the current film landscape in just how joyful and classically influenced it is.

    For a portion of the first half I was close to having an "is this it?" moment, because despite the huge musical numbers and inventive direction & cinematography, the plot was a bit run of the…
