This week, every movie is a suspect. Jon and Will discuss the latest releases, including Rian Johnson’s modern whodunnit-murder-mystery ensemble, Knives Out, which stars way too many people to mention. We also talk Christmas movies on streaming, catch up on recent flicks we missed, and cover a few indies you might want to add to your ever-growing radar.
This week’s theme music is “Knives Out! (String Quartet in G Minor)” by Nathan Johnson and can be found on the original soundtrack for Knives Out.
Question of the Week: What are some 2019 movies you want to catch up on over the holidays? (Last week’s question, but added to this week as well!)
