My "I don't understand American audiences" rant is Knives Out's success. Between this and Murder on the Orient Express, the whodunit sub-genre just seems to be excuses to make the easily persuaded feel smart with their "treat the audience as if they are idiots" premises.

Also, Rian Johnson is no different from someone such as Doug Liman. We need to stop acting like he's a brilliant auteur.
It's like what Lenin said...I am the walrus.

Since it's a holiday weekend, I'll post the weekend numbers (and all the various league updates - sorry I fell a week behind!) tomorrow.
Happy 70th birthday Dan Aykroyd! (7/1/22)
