  • atomheartbevo changed the title to Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery (Netflix, Daniel Craig, Kathryn Hahn, Edward Norton, etc.)

In!

Also, I could have sworn I saw an ad last night for another movie like this coming out (but IIRC the cast was different).  When I saw the ad I assumed it was Knives Out 2 but didn't see Daniel Craig in the preview).  Wish I could remember the cast members I did see.

Wasn’t Death on the Nile or whatever was it?

Knives Out was great.

Hope he stays in that lane and doesn't pull some Last Jedi shit with this franchise 

You do realize that Knives Out was exactly in the same lane as Last Jedi? Deconstructions of the genre?

He certainly deconstructed the Star Wars franchise and shit out a bad movie.

I enjoy you saying you hope he stays in his lane and doesn't pull some Last Jedi shit with the franchise he created. He has every right to do that with his franchise. 

You're right there, I didn't realize he wrote it.  I assumed it was adapted from a book.

No definitely was not a reboot of an Agatha Christie title. 
 

I had drunk a couple martinis so it’s very possible I just misremembered the cast.

No. We did not realize knives out was exactly the same as the last Jedi. 

Some directors have the same theme in all their movies. Ang Lee is one; Rian Johnson is another. Ang's movies are all about unspoken/hidden passions. Rian's are deconstructions of genre; taking well-known tropes and reversing them.

In the Last Jedi, you have a bitter old hero and a sympathetic villain. In Knives Out, it's a murder mystery where you know who the murderer is right from the start.

Figured it out. See How They Run.

Watched this last night (streaming on HBO Max). It was entertaining, light fare. Had a little Wes Anderson vibe (probably helped having Saiorse Ronan in the cast).

I liked this movie (see how they run) quite a bit.

$1.3 Billion box office says it was a small, insignificant part of the audience that felt that way. 

The Highest-Grossing Star Wars Movies, Ranked (Adjusted For Inflation) (screenrant.com)

Quote

There isn't much of a difference between The Rise of Skywalker's original box office intake and the gross profit adjusted for inflation, as it's the newest movie in the franchise and only three years old. But regardless of which way fans look at it, it's still an overall disappointment and a relatively uneventful release that Disney would rather forget.

Me, too.

Knives Out was really good.

Still don't know why you ask a British actor to affect a southern drawl, but whatever.

 

How Craig did his West Virginia accent as Joe Blast in Logan Lucky was entertaining as hell. The fact he didn’t do it exceptionally well is strangely what made it work.

Saw Glass Onion at a film festival a few weeks ago.   It was great.  Craig still hasn't nailed the southern accent.  But just took it as some more of the jokes.  

No need to see Knives Out first.  It's in the same universe, but the story is completely separate.

Saw it in theaters tonight.  Very fun movie.  It managed to keep the spirit and fun of the first movie with completely new characters in a much different setting, so it doesn't feel like you're just watching an identical clone of the first flick.  I could watch several of these if they kept going.
