  1. I can't believe I'm saying this, but this is the first time I've felt this way when watching one of your reviews, Are you high? Knives out was not that great. It was a B maybe a B+ at best. I always enjoy your reviews and I don't expect you by any means to like all the same movies I like but typically we're at least close or in the same ballpark on how much a movie is good or bad or good bad but this time we do not see eye to eye sir.

  2. This one didn't hit the same for me. The first's Marta twist actually feels interesting because it happens much earlier and the flashback is much shorter. By then centering the story around Marta with Benoit putting the clues together in the background the story manages to get you to empathize with her character and the flow of the narrative feels more natural. This film, however, puts far too much emphasis on the flashbacks leaving the viewer in the lurch. It pulls you out of the linear narrative for far too long which ruins the pacing of the movie entirely. The film also feels far less interested in sprinkling clues throughout this time feeling more inclined to just tell you who the murderer is. It's more focused on being a mean-spirited social commentary than being a mystery. Knives Out, on the contrary, balances its dual nature far better. It's undeniably a commentary on the exploitation by the rich but it's presented in a far more engaging and evenhanded package that will satisfy fans of the genre and the commentary alike. In spite of my gripes, there's still plenty to love in the movie. Benoit Blanc continues to be a charming character and for what it's worth, despite my distaste for how they handled the structure of the narrative, Helen is a fun character. It also manages to maintain the humor of the first but it just seems to come up short where it really counts to be considered a truly well-made mystery. I'd give it a solid 6/10. Also a sidenote they heavily underused Benoit's partner. The dynamic between these two characters and actors would be hilarious to see on screen and it's a shame the movie doesn't even give them an after-credits scene to bounce off of each other. Maybe in the next one.
