    I think the ending of It is one of King's stronger endings, which makes all of the parts in the second movie where they harp on how bad the writer character is at endings the entire time until they do a fundamentally worse ending than the book extremely grating

    Hearing Glass Onion is better than Knives Out has my expectations through the roof

    Just saw it and they are very different movies, I think I would agree that Glass Onion is better.

    There's a small spoiler on the theme of the movie that I think they absolutely accidentally nailed the release timing
    One theme of the movie is that the Elon Musk analog character sucks shit and is an absolute moron and all of his sycophantic hangers on are absolute dogshit people

    Also not sure if everyone will see this trailer but apparently there's a movie coming out about 4 horny old women who decide to go to a Super Bowl to see Tom Brady and Gronk on the Patriots. It is heavily NFL branded and they actually have Brady appear on the Patriots.

    I have no idea what year this was actually filmed or why they're releasing it now but it looks awful and it's just baffling

    Just got back from Glass Onion myself. I won't say that it's better than Knives Out. I'd personally rank it as equal. It's a reasonably different movie than Knives Out, which is good because 'Knives Out 2: Knife Harder' would just be lazy. And yeah that theme had some great timing.

    Decent crowd too, given it was a 2pm showing on a Wednesday. I hope this week pulls some good numbers for Glass Onion.

    I got really fucking excited when I thought Glass Onions was out, but then realized it is that stupid limited theater release, of which there are none here and I have to wait a month to watch it.

    Oh, lucky! Glass Onion is at the Classic Cinema near me. I'll probably check it out on Saturday or Sunday, after the holiday and my brother's birthday festivities end.

    Should I do Glass Onion this week and Strange World next week, or just polish them both off in a weekend?

    You know what? Nanowrimo's cancelled on account of the world is stupid.

    My friends were howling at it.

    Afterwards, I pointed out that it probably didn't hit me as hard as...
    ...I work in long term care, so seeing people vomiting/having loose BM is kind of just part of my life.

    But it was a perfect set up of just so much being wrong, and everybody having to know it's going to end badly, but they just trudge on regardless.

    I saw Glass Onion last night and as someone who thought Knives Out was a 7/10 movie, I really enjoyed its follow-up.

    I intentionally abstained from watching any trailers or looking anything up regarding it, so almost every actor who showed up (except for Daniel Craig & Janelle Monáe) was a fun surprise.

    It's a lot of fun and it could not have released at a better time, as its theme is incredibly relevant to news as of late.

    But in a movie with a lot of good jokes, the thing that got me to laugh the hardest was:
    When the film does its flashback to the character's in their early 30's at the Glass Onion tavern and Ed Norton shows up dressed exactly like Tom Cruise in Magnolia.

    I watched the Christmas Story sequel with the family today because we needed something passive to zone out to between dessert and Jackbox.

    It was… uh… on par with the original, more or less? It’ll obviously never become a cult classic or anything, and it wasn’t good, but I got in a solid nap for like 20 minutes and when I woke up my wife asked if I wanted another slice of pie, so it wasn’t all bad.

    Vampire slayer Elliot Jones made it his life's mission to take revenge on the bloodsuckers who killed his teenage daughter. After years of tracking them, he's finally reached their secret and hidden base. However, to get to them, he'll need help from a motley crew of social media superstars who've been invited to party at a compound that's also a lair for ancient vampires.

    I'm okay with this premise as long as all, or at least most, of the social media "superstars" are killed in painful, gruesome ways. Otherwise, no dice.

    The Expanse podcast has multiple stories of him just showing up to set without shoes and refusing to put any on. I still can't decide if that's some asshole behavior or very funny
