This thread would be fucking huge if knives out was RJ’s “book of henry”.

That was never a possibility tho.

Pretty sure a handful of them were really hoping for it

I imagine they will be sharing reviews from shitheads like RLM and YMS who will complain about politics and SJWs ruining movies and demand to be taken seriously.

Newsflash dipshits, art is political

Rian Johnson directed the Fly episode of BB? Like I needed another reason to hate this cunt.

Incredibly excited for this, but have been for a while now. Glad to see it all turn out well, and that all of Daniel Craig, Chris Evans and Ana de Armas are being praised.

It's weird that Rian Johnson gets the blame for Fly and not the people who actually wrote it (or for that matter, Vince Gilligan). Among that group Rian would have the least amount of input in making that episode.

Weirder still is the level of pure hated aimed at that episode. I don't get it at all.

People like to single out the stuff Rian has worked on, especially since TLJ. (I know some people didn't like Fly before that, too.)

I think that episode is a great breather though, I enjoyed it.

This is the first director in my entire life that I am actively boycotting after the complete trash of TLJ. Then I learn he directed the Fly episode of BB and it all comes full circle.

I was interested from the trailer but worried about execution because these types of films are easy to fuck up. It sounds like this is a winner so I will be seeing it Thanksgiving weekend.

I don’t recall that one, what was it about? The fly one stands out more due to nothing happening which is eerily similar to TLJ.
Rian Johnson did not write the script for Fly, he directed the episode.

Seems like you have more of an issue with vince gilligan.

Edit: do people even care about the truth at this point?

Edit2: on the last two pages RJ has been called a “racist” and a “cunt”. Whew.

Lol, imagine thinking Fly is poorly directed.

Fly's character development and directing are top notch but because Walter going around throwing around Lightsabers and pulling down Star Destroyers, some people who are more interesting in the "badass" parts of Breaking Bad don't like it.

tbh even if you didn't like the last jedi, you have to see that rian johnson is a very talented director.

the unhealthy obsession some people have with him is disturbing. they need to seek treatment.

TLJ derangement syndrome is the worst. The unironic "Ruin Johnson is a racist cunt who raped my childhood" shit is so tiring.

At least no one has compared Rian to Jeffery Epstein again

Speaking of which

The fact you call him a cunt because he made a space wizard kids movie that didn’t fit what you wanted says more about you than it does him.

RJ's penchant to piss off the right people is just :chef's kiss:
Yep. I have never encountered someone who had hatred for him that didn’t come across like an unhinged crazy person. Like I truly wonder how self aware they are for how embarrassing they come across.

Ironically (or perhaps rather predictably) all this seething irrational hatred for RJ is only serving to signal boost Knives Out.

Despite me absolutely *hating* TLJ I can acknowledge Rian Johnson is a fantastic director. He directed Ozymandias for crying out loud and even made a no-action bottle episode fun to watch.

His writing leaves me wary though. Looper was a great movie but definitely not because of its writing.

And after the universal praise of this film’s “twists and turns” I can’t help but think of the somewhat similar praise of TLJ’s subverting expectations. I hope I’m wrong though; how can you go wrong with a cast like this?

Let's be fair, though. A good whodunnit is all about twists and turns and subversions.

Meagan Goode in Brick? Lakeith? We’ll skip Boyega since that is clearly the point of contention here.

Either way, you’re gonna need to establish a pattern to make this one work. Right now the pattern is not on your side.

But imo, you are aiming at the wrong person, Star Wars wise.
Having a supporting role here and there isn’t what he’s talking about. It still stands that RJ has never had a lead PoC in any of his films or projects. Which is depressing to those hoping that we’ll live to see a non-white protag in a SW movie (not even touching the homogeneity of the creative process behind these movies).

He has a lead PoC in the project we're talking about right now.
