Good Story 183: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri

Scott gives Julie a bookmark with a Marx quote that changes her life. "Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read." He's always been a fan of Groucho Marx. Episode 183: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

  1. Hey, great episode! I just saw this film last week thanks to my local library and enjoyed how it wound up at the end. Like you, I found the first half to two-thirds a tough slog, but it was definitely worth it. Someone once said about "The Shawshank Redemption" that you have to go through a lot of Shawshank before you get to the redemption. That applies here.

    On Brideshead Revisited, I've read the book twice. The BBC miniseries from the 1980s with Jeremy Irons is well worth watching. I heard the recent movie version isn't very good. There's probably too much story to cram into two hours.

    I'm looking forward to King Kong and I just got Appointment with Death from the library. Too bad they don't have The Strangest Way!

    1. Somehow this didn't come to my email ... sorry I missed responding for so long. I've never seen The Shawshank Redemption because my kids have always told me I wouldn't like it. Possibly because of all that Shawshank! :-D

      Did you like Brideshead Revisited? I probably need to check your GoodReads feed. You write such great reviews.

    2. I took a look and didn't see a review from me for Brideshead, so my reading it must predate my blog and goodreads, so more than ten years ago. It's one of those book that I felt went over my head (I've had similar impressions from Flannery O'Connor's writings) but was worth rereading. I can't remember it too clearly, so maybe it's time for another re-read! I liked it, but it certainly is no Lord of the Rings or Jane Eyre.

    3. I like to see the order that you put the great books in! :-D

      I'll be curious to see how I like it as I will be forced to get through it this time around.

    4. I remember thinking once about five books to have on a desert island. The first four were easy: Lord of the Rings, Jane Eyre, Fahrenheit 451, and Brothers Karamazov. I started to wonder about the fifth when I realized I left off the Bible. Of course that was my first choice all along...Whoops! Sorry, God.

    5. Wow, these didn't come to my mail either. Strange!

      Hello Joseph! Looks like I better read Brothers Karamazov! After Brideshead, of course...
