Just left a sold-out showing in Omaha Nebraska at 3:45. I LOVED IT. I thought it was such a clever film that kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I would rather have this film in Best Picture then some of the films it looks like we are going to getNovember 27, 2019 at 5:56 pm #1203206541
I think Johnson really nails the landing in the construction of a whodunit in the very classical sense of the word (as well as its humor and characterizations). To explain more is to tread in the realm of spoilers (even in the most opaque way might suggest something).
But I can easily see him finagling a Screenplay nod out of it (there are usually an Original film or two that gets a nod here and nowhere else).
I can also see Craig getting a Globe nomination in the Comedy category. He’s hugely entertaining, chicken-fried accent and all.November 27, 2019 at 6:35 pm #1203206571
I had such high hopes. The movie was okay but not great.November 27, 2019 at 7:27 pm #1203206611
Love it love it love it.
Original screenplay nomination please.
Is the music original? Because i love it.
I just love movies. And awards.November 27, 2019 at 8:34 pm #1203206659
This is a damn masterpiece.November 29, 2019 at 7:40 pm #1203208799
Saw this and loved it. I won’t go into too much detail so that I don’t spoil anything. Rian Johnson’s direction and especially script are delightful. There came a point where I wasn’t sure if I liked where the story was going, but by the end, I found it to be very enjoyable and rewarding. The whole cast is stellar. While I don’t think I’d nominate anyone individually, I believe this would make for a fantastic ensemble nominee. Ana de Armas and Daniel Craig are the highlights, which makes sense since they’re the biggest roles. de Armas is such a genuinely likable presence throughout, and Craig is beautifully hammy, in the best ways possible. Hope they can get Globe noms alongside the film itself. I will say, for as good as this ensemble is, I really would’ve liked to have seen some more of a few cast members, though for the sake or keeping the film’s secrets, I won’t say who. They had solid supporting roles, but I thought they were going to be a bit more present throughout. Nonetheless, Crag, Evans, de Armas, Lee Curtis, Shannon, Collete, Johnson, Langford, Stanfield, and Plummer are all excellent. Noah Segan isn’t being advertised with these bigger names, and his role isn’t super big (he and Edi Patterson had more to do than Jaeden Martell, who was good, but clearly overshadowed by bigger stars in bigger roles), but I thought he was adorable. Honestly, this would make for a very solid Best Picture contender, but that’s not gonna happen. However, I currently think it’s gonna wind up receiving a very deserved screenplay nomination. Overall, this is a great movie. It’s got laughs, suspense, and one of the best casts of the year. I highly recommend Knives Out.November 29, 2019 at 8:35 pm #1203208839
I saw the movie at it’s premiere at TIFF, and watched it again last night.
It’s the best damn movie of the year. Every part works perfectly towards the whole – the screenplay is funny, expertly plotted, and thoughtful, the actors are clearly having the time of their lives playing these parts, and the design and sound fits the mood perfectly. The audiences I was with really dug it, too, and I can see this having legs because people will want to come back to see it again and again.
Awards-wise, Best Original Screenplay, Best Production Design, and Best Original Score seem like safe bets, but I’d love to see some more nominations and I think it’s possible. This is a movie people will fall in love with, so on the preferential ballot it’ll get lots of 1s and 2s and only a few 5s. I also think the acting branch will want to recognize at least one cast members, and that’s likely to be Ana de Armas due to her performance, the nature of her role, and the fact that she’s a young up-and-coming actress. I also think Chris Evans has a shot at Supporting Actor (keep an eye on the Globes and SAG) and Daniel Craig will almost certainly get in Best Actor in a Comedy/Musical at the Globes (he deserves an Oscar nomination, too, but unless the movie totally dominates the nominations that’s not likely to happen).November 29, 2019 at 9:22 pm #1203208890
The best screenplay of the year. Clever, funny, twisted… whew.

I would genuinely describe this movie as flawlessNovember 30, 2019 at 1:00 am #1203209090
Damn, I knew this was a crowdpleaser but I wasn’t expecting such rapturous praise. My interest is piqued, I’m gonna try and see it tomorrow.

Fantastic movie. As a whodunit lover I feel like Rian Johnson wrote it especially for me and other people who love mysteries. I’m gonna scream if it’s not nominated for Best Original Screenplay (no, not really scream, but I’ll be furious, no doubt). Let’s hope it will be at least this year’s “The Lobster” or “First Reformed”, getting screenplay even without anyhing else, though I wouldn’t mind costumes, editing and production design. Craig’s French accent – delightful. All of them seemed like they had such fun making this movie. I agree it would be great to see more of the amazing supporting cast although it was fine as it was. Kenneth Branagh, take notice how it should be done.November 30, 2019 at 9:02 am #1203209372

I’ve had this in my picks for at least the nod. It’s sharp, and has knock out scores with places that matter. I believe it’s IN
