    I’ve noticed that even some of the people here who really like Knives Out have been saying it’s just “fun” or implying that it doesn’t have enough substance to go beyond Screenplay in terms of nominations.

    I disagree. I think there’s a lot going on in the movie, and this article I think does a great job of showing just how perceptively it skewers white privilege:

    I hope so. I love that movie. It’s my new Genre Movie that Could now that Endgame is looking more and more like a delusional fantasy.

    I thought it was fantastic and it should get nominated for Best Screenplay!

    Missed the win at NYFCC and might lose to Hollywood with LA. Hoping for WGA to give it some love.
    BP ? Just a nom would be terrific.

    It’s the exact kind of genre film that the WGA recognizes (A QUIET PLACE, DEADPOOL, THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, Johnson’s own LOOPER) but doesn’t go on to an Academy nod.

    Here’s hoping, though…

    I thought meh. I found the politics tacked in a bit much and really out of place. The mystery is pretty obvious. The film isnt as clever as it thinks it is. Wasnt really all that impressed. As Wells would call it it is a “wokester” movie.

    A WGA win despite the eliminations is a nice win though. Many of the best films of the year have writing nominations.
    Out of the films you mention they only won 1 Oscar between them. Sigh

    Well, if you have to quote Jeff Wells to criticize the movie’s politics, it must be doing SOMETHING right.

    I’m far from unbiased as I’ve been pretty direct about, but knives surprised me even more than I expected from Rian and I found it a terrific homage to old school mysteries. And with perfs from that cast! Ana and Daniel…all of them.
    Fingers crossed .

    Just watched Brick on Netflix. Not my cup of tea. Dialogue was too weird for me, even if that was probably the intention. But there I was watching Meagan Good thinking it’s Naomi Campbell.

    Anyway, Knives Out is far better than that movie is all I’m saying.
