I became a LAMB in November 2011, over a year after I started blogging to spread the word about Mettel Ray (then known as Mettel Ray Movie Blog) and to be apart of a very large community of movie bloggers. I think I was even a contributor and everything, which is why it’s actually baffling to me that I can’t remember why I stopped. Did I even give in my resignation? Did I just forget that I was a LAMB with university taking over my life? I did go through a lot of rough years with my blog during university as well, so it might have been my own personal crisis that pulled me away from that community.

Here are some of my favourite immoral characters from television and film.

Though, I feel like jumping into Three Billboards (I’ll refer to it as such from now on because man what a mouthful of a title!) blind and unaware was the best kind of way to experience this black comedy and its even darker theme.
