We have a double bonus review for you all this week, but with a twist. In addition to reviewing Glass Onion and The Fabelmans, we discuss Hollywood’s ongoing box office woes, particularly when it comes to Netflix’s business model and Disney’s rough rollout of Strange World. First up, we discuss Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, the spinoff/sequel of Knives Out, also directed of course by Rian Johnson and featuring the return of Daniel Craig as Benoit Blanc, the world’s greatest detective not named Batman, along with a huge, star-studded ensemble cast. Then we go back in time to the childhood of Steven Spielberg, in his new awards-friendly semi-autobiographical drama The Fabelmans, which stars Michelle Williams and Paul Dano as his parents of a different name.
