Knives Out (2019)

Wow, wasn’t expecting that.

Who would have thought that this little movie that could only snuck in Craig´s schedule because Bond was delayed would go on to not only earn tons of money as an original movie and then even become a franchise?

Goes to show: nobody knows anything.

I finally saw ‘Knives Out’ last night. What an incredibly fun movie! Craig and the entire cast are clearly having a total blast. I’m glad it clicked with the worldwide audience for everyone involved. A franchise with Benoit Blanc sounds like a great idea to me!

Yes, pretty sure Craig will enjoy a franchise where the stunts are significantly less risky than a Bond. This made my day when I first read about it.

Johnson talking plot twists, and recommending films.

Finally saw this delightful and perfectly crafted film. And boy, did DC exude sheer fun and enjoying himself!

I may actually make this the first film I watch at the cinema this year.

Deserved more…but I don’t think anyone of it’s cast or crew made it for that.

This was a film for shrugging off studio pressure and twitter abuse.

Yeah, I wondered if the “alt-right boy” in Knives Out was Rian Johnson’s reverse troll at Star Wars fans attacking The Last Jedi.

He claims it isn’t, but I suspect that was the first thought of much of the audience.

I loved how “Knives Out” actually is one of the most timely reflections on American society while wrapping it up in a traditional genre - and still playing with its conventions.

I was disappointed that Ana de Armas wasn’t nominated. Her career is surging right now and her talent is undeniable. Can’t wait to see her in NTTD.

She definitely would have deserved an acting nomination.

Is that really the best cover choice for a “murder mystery”?

Those who’ve seen it will understand.
