    • Tip of the hat to Lionsgate for going all out with the bonus features here. It's pretty damn rare outside of a niche studio release to see this sort of attention paid to delivering top quality extras....

    • I rarely like to call any one film a favorite film of the year, but even with the stacked competition of 2019, I have to call Knives Out my favorite of the year. I love murder mystery thrillers and Rian...
