Its a shame, because he *is* an intelligent guy. And I like reading his reviews. Hes on a level I wish I was in that regard. Its a temp ban, though so hell be back
It's temporary. Won't be next time, though.
Wheres the crime scene?
That entire debate about what constitutes as rape is easily the worst one I've ever gotten into here with him.
Oh well, I don't care for him anyway.

I'm really not a fan of the way he drives his arguments, always has an air of superiority complex about them.
Saw it coming
Just noticed Zotis got banned. How about that.
I don't. I noted this elsewhere, but I remember thinking In Bruges was amazing when I saw it in theatres but Seven Psychopaths and Three Billboards were disappointing enough that I'm genuinely reluctant to revisit it. I did see his short film Six Shooter - between that and a couple of the standalone vignettes in Seven Psychopaths, I might prefer him doing shorter stuff because he gets unwieldy at feature length.
The acting was the strongest part of Three Billboards. Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell were amazing.

I also thought the story was a very fascinating breakdown of the ignorantly ineffective police force and how personal loss can drive you act out in the worst possible ways. McDormand's character is the kind who doesn't want you to feel sorry for her despite what she's going through, and she's very strongminded. But only to compensate for the pain she's building up inside.

I hope we see more from McDonagh soon.
I haven't seen Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, but I did notice that it was garnishing a lot of critical acclaim and awards, so that's why it peeked my interest when you, @Iroqouis, said you noticed it was bad. I wasn't specifically thinking of acting, but yes I did emphasise acting in particular originally. I wasn't so much trying to make a point about acting, as just noticing a movie is bad in general part way through.
Yeah, I mean the original question was about noticing bad acting anyway. Didn't much care for the movie aside from that either.
