Lambscores: Family Christmas on the Train to Ebbing, MI

by Jay Cluitt · December 8, 2017 · Featured, LAMBscores · 1 Comment

This week was almost a write-off. Last week, I announced that the next Lambscores would look at Murder on the Orient Express, Daddy’s Home 2 and A Bad Mom’s Christmas, the latter of which I’d missed covering a couple of weeks earlier. I compiled the scores and links, but it was a thoroughly underwhelming and unimpressive list of movies. Then, however, I checked to see what next week’s films would be, and a title amongst the lesser releases caught my eye – Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. It’s not had a UK release yet and didn’t receive a very wide release anywhere else it seems, but it’s gathered a lot of reviews, all of them positive, and high enough to place it at the tippy-top of 2017’s leaderboard! Here’s what the LAMB community had to say about it and the rest of the week’s crop:

If you want to get involved, here’s how LAMBScores work: Over in the LAMB Forums there’s a sub-board called LAMBScores. If you’ve written a review or recorded a podcast on a new release, find (or create) the thread there, and leave a link to your review, along with your site name and a score out of 5. Three weeks after the film has received a wide release the reviews will be collated and posted here, as long as there are at least five.
