It was worth a stream. Although the whole time I kept repeating the director's name through clenched teeth.

Yeah Rian Johnson is a Delta Bravo of the highest regard and really jacked up Star Wars, but putting all that aside I thought Knives Out was an entertaining flick. Not AMAZING or GREAT CINEMA or anything but, at least for me very enjoyable.

That faux-southern accent Daniel Craig was sporting was definitely a bit offputting at first, though.

It sounded really strange at first, coming from him. It seemed to morph a little as the movie progressed, like it took him two thirds of the movie to figure out how to do it. But overall I liked it.

Yeah. Either he got better or my brain adjusted, but I stopped noticing much after about the mid point.

Heard good things about the movie but was kinda bored by it. A good whodunit needs to have clues and red herrings and make you guess.

I just thought this film was too expository. It just told the story but didn't really give a lot of room for the viewer to watch and see clues and make guesses.

The accent was part Foghorn Leghorn part Shelby Foote. I think they even mentioned Foghorn Leghorn in the movie. At first I hated it but then I just fogured he was purposely just going over the top for comedy sake so that's fine.

My son watched part of it with me. I didn’t hear a lot of language til the end, so since he likes mysteries, wth. I, too, thought it was a bit of a spoof, but I liked it. Just light entertainment. I had trouble getting past Craig’s accent, though.

We rented it a month or so ago and I must have slept through it. We streamed it last night from Amazon Prime and thought it was mildly enjoyable and better then most of the crap that comes out of hollywood.

I thought it was alright. The best mystery thriller I've ever seen is a Spanish film that came out in 2017 called 'The Invisible Guest' If you can endure subtitles, it's a masterpiece.

I liked it. Looking forward to her being a Bond girl when it comes out (out already?).
