Hollywood Depicts Missouri Accurately???

Missouri's movie stereotype is well-earned

Kathy Love's "Dispatch from Ebbing" (Jan. 24) to the effect that "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" and similar movies create an unfortunate stereotype of Missouri and that we need to reject it is sadly naive. In order to support her thesis that we need to reject that picture, she lists the very reasons why that stereotype is well-earned.

If you want to win an Oscar or a Golden Globe just have a liberal message in your movie. The film can suck, be inaccurate and boring but the critics will rave about it.

^^^ Or, you can make a movie extolling the conservative viewpoint, concepts and mythology, and absolutely no one will go to see it!

@ 9:52, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

I haven't laughed so hard in weeks!

That list is marvelous, I'll be reading it over and over!
My favorite so far is how the loon who complied the list twists and strains to explain how "A Bug's Life" illustrates the benefits of Trickle-down Economics! WHAT A HOOT!

Again, thank you for guiding me to this sterling example of the Absurd!

Billboards and Missouri go hand in hand. Outdoor advertising has such a powerful grip on the Missouri General Assembly that you will live a long life and never see fewer billboards. Its funny that, in this film, these billboards are used to push back against complacency, the way things are and injustice.

Gosh! How cool that we have advance civil rights to the point where we can sit in a theater and argue with fictional characters on a movie screen.
