Re: Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery (possible spoilers)

I watched it last night, didn't love it but didn't hate it, kind of somewhere in the middle.

I also watched it this weekend. I admit I had to keep stopping and starting it as I kept getting interrupted.

I think it was campy fun, but I feel like it was more a parody of a mystery movie than a mystery movie. In that regard, I found it inferior to the original Knives Out.

We watched this the other night and we both enjoyed it.  I thought the characters were fun and Kate Hudson was great!   Also I haven't seen Ed Norton in awhile and he is one of my favorite actors.  Liked the first one too.

@NickNack   Looking this up on my Spectrum Prime to see if this is running on a channel I can get other than netflix. I found a movie called "Knives Out" starring Daniel Craig. 

 

I'm wondering if this series on netflix is a followup or continuation of sorts from this movie. Okay, well juxst clicked on this to watch but it'll cost me - not sure how much but I'm out, not paying for it.

@PINKdogWOOD   Knives Out and Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery are two separate movies.  The original one is very good, too.  It's a Netflix original movie, so I doubt it will ever be shown anywhere else.  Daniel Craig is in both movies, but the rest of the cast is different.

Yes, I loved it.  I thought the Hugh Grant cameo was hilarious.


 

 

@Bookplate   I thought his cameo was very funny, too.  I also LOL at Kate Hudson's mask.

I want to watch it just for the cast!  I didn't know Hugh Grant had a cameo.  Sounds like a good one!


I'm sorry she gave away that fun spolier. 

I didn't like the film nearly as much as Knives Out.

Re: Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery (possible spoilers)

This 2nd Knives Out movie was much more farcical humor and with not as much emphasis on the mystery aspect. For plot development and mystery contrivance, I liked the first one better. For broad humor and silly stereotype characters, the Glass Onion movie entertained me. Plus, the dramatic explosive kind of James Bond extreme ending was very satisfying.

 

I hope Netflix brings out a 3rd one.  Daniel Craig's drawl really is a buzz.

Possible spoilers was in the title of the thread. She did nothing wrong.
