Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017)

Awards season is heating up, and the Catholic Movie Guy Podcast continues apace.

This week, I again welcome Bo Bonner of The Uncommon Good on Iowa Catholic Radio to the show to discuss the 2017 Golden Globe Winner of Best Picture (Drama), Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri.

Written and directed by Martin McDonagh, it stars the great Frances McDormand as a small town mom trying to get big time justice/revenge.

The film is brutal, vulgar, touching, and beautiful – not for the fainthearted, but I liked it even more after the discussion with Bo. Enjoy!

The Last Jedi (2017)

If you were waiting on the Catholic Movie Guy to make up your mind about the new Star Wars, I have some good news, and some bad news.

The good news is that I loved it as much as anyone; the bad news is that I hated it as much as everyone.

Confused? Listen as Bo Bonner of Iowa Catholic Radio joins me to discuss (with limited nerdiness) the latest (and greatest/worst) Star Wars entry: the good, the bad, the beautiful, the ugly, The Last Jedi.
