A good portion of them are Trump fans or at the very least liberal haters. They'll find plenty to hate about lol.Now Where Was I ? wrote: ↑November 28th, 2019, 4:03 pmWhat a film
An incredibly clever, funny and thematically rich script. I think this may be Rian's best one and am so absolutely delighted that this almost-impossible-to-hate film comes to the TLJ haters out there.
Ana Armas just stole the film. This is completely her film. Craig was great, but almost felt like a supporting character to her story. Toni Collette was my favorite of the supporting cast, she had by far the funniest lines
One minor disappointment is that
All non-Nolan related film, tv, and streaming discussions.
Also, let’s make this absolutely clear you guys: Rian Johnson fans, uhm haters, they don’t hate him for making Knives Out. They hate him for having the sheer audacity to extend his biological expiration date past the premiere of The Last Jedi. Them hating Knives Out means both The Last Jedi and Knives Out are brilliant films.
Yeah, this was great. I just loved how Johnson took a basic premise, managed to make it feel twisty and complex, but you never lost track of what was going on. Once the ball started rolling, it didn't stop. At first, I was worried about exactly what kind of detective Craig was playing, because based on the marketing, I was led to believe he would be this Holmes-esque, Poirot-type; straight as an arrow, hyperfocused and rarely allows things to slip by him. But once it got to the end, I kind of loved how my expectations were played around with, and that allowed Craig to really go for it. I could listen him talking about donuts all day.
They're just reaching. Knives Out got an excellent A- cinemascore. The Last Jedi got an A. People in general really like Rian's movies.
