Nothing brings family together like murder or fortune, right? Just in time for the holidays, Knives Out is exactly the type of after dinner affair you want to attend. An all-star cast featuring Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, and Jamie Lee Curtis (just to name a few)? A murder mystery that’s not only clever, but also relevant? I mean, seriously.

From the start, Knives Out is endlessly entertaining, and by movie’s end, you’ll be asking yourself if you’ve had a more fun time at the movies this year.

I was surprised by how crowded the theatre was when I went to see Bond. It was Sunday afternoon, the movie had been out for two days already and the place was still packed. That’s rare for Lethbridge. James Bond is pretty popular and it’s not hard to see why. You know what you’re getting into – there’s car chases and fights and seductions and witty repartee all of these things done very very well. They must have sunk a ton of money into that thing, it was breathtaking to watch.
