Film Review: Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri.

Getting back into having our weekly movie date nights after having a baby has been hard. It’s surprisingly difficult to leave and also not wanting to leave our son, with anyone; even though we know he’s safe with family members.  But a routine’s starting to form. The film of choice this time was Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri.

It was a movie that had me intrigued since I saw the trailer. I wanted to know if they catch the culprit, how it closes. It’s filled with so much serious topics but strewn together cleverly with some humour. I was not surprised at all the Oscar nominations this film received, because of how well made this film is.

The cast was so well put together, and all should be commended for their roles they portrayed. Frances Mcdormand deserved her Oscar she won. I feel like all the main cast should have an award from their performances too. Woody Harrelson did a great job, with the role he had, and left a lasting impression. I’m also glad the twist Sam Rockwell’s role got to have.

The only negative thing I have to say about this movie was that I hated the ending. Granted they left it open with the possibility of a second film. But it left me wanting more. I hope we find out if they find and what happens. It’s making me edgy not knowing.

I am happy that it’s had a positive response from both critics and activists. I love that it sparked a few activists protests. More details can be found by google.

Snow Day 💙❄️⛄️

Although it’s starting to clear now, these past few days we seemed to have succumbed to Storm Emma and the beast from the east. We had a full day of constant pretty heavy snow.

I wouldn’t normally do a blog about snow. But this was my 4 month old son’s first snow encounter. So we had to immortalise it in a post. We needed a few things from the local store. And we couldn’t drive, as none of our cars would of made it and with a baby would be too dangerous anyway.

Our pram got stuck, so we put him in a baby carrier, which killed my back but made Jackson happy. Here’s a few pictures from that day.

We also let him touch a little snow, but he wasn’t impressed.

All in all, I don’t think he understood what was happening at all. But it was adorable seeing him look around in amazement.

Hopefully the next snow day, he’ll be a bit older.
