An amusing way to spend a couple of hours on a cruddy Sunday afternoon.  Some tasty moments, most especially from Daniel Craig alone in a car belting out a Broadway classic.

I am right there with you. Our Sunday afternoon was cruddy too.  Also, when Toni Collette referenced a tweet I almost peed.

Loved loved loved.

Also found out Ana de Armas is in post-production for an adaptation of Joyce Carol Oates’s Blonde as Marilyn Monroe, which sounds FABulous.

Count me in amongst those who loved it. It was a much slower burn than the previews and commercials play it up to be (I was honestly expecting a lot more madcap almost Clue like comedy), but I found it all the more compelling for not just being a Clue knockoff.

Did you know that every day Mexican gays cross our borders and unplug our brain-dead ladies?

I saw this yesterday and enjoyed it tremendously.

This thread is the second time I've seen a reference to Clue. The other place I saw it even said that Knives Out owed a debt of "gratitude" to Clue.  That's ridiculous. It owes a debt of gratitude to Agatha Christie, as does the film Clue and the board game. 

There is also a subtle homage to Sleuth in Knives Out

Thoroughly enjoyed it, and even more on a second viewing, when you can see all of the clues and misleading through a different lens.

8 comments and not one of you Queens has mentioned Daniel Craig singing “Follies” in the car.

Shame.

It was the opening of a thread on the main page 2 weeks ago.

 

I really had a great time at this film!   Old fashioned, but not too much, clever without taking itself too seriously.    Fun day at the movies!

If we're not having fun, then why are we doing it? These are DISCUSSION boards, not mutual admiration boards. Discussion only occurs when we are willing to hear what others are thinking, regardless of whether it is alignment to our own thoughts.

I mentioned the moment, but left out the specific reference because I didn't want to spoil the film's real highlight.

I might be the only person who didn't like this movie. I was honestly bored out of my mind. I kept having to fight the urge to take out my phone so I'd have something to do, and that's something that hardly ever happens to me. I thought the script was uninspired - everything was telegraphed and predictable, and the great cast was wasted because they were given nothing to do. Johnson's directing was pretty unremarkable as well. But I've never been much of a fan of his.
