Movie rambling: 20-year old films, Knives Out 2 cast, and stuff

I feel really old this year. Also, Knives Out 2 is going to be a masterpiece.


Shrek celebrated its 20th anniversary this week. That of course got me thinking, “man, has it really been two decades?” I remember watching that movie on loop as a kid. You can imagine my devastation when Twitter kindly informed me of some of the other movies turning 20 this year. 

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Monster’s Inc, Spy Kids, it’s just too much. Even Osmosis Jones, one of the first movies I remember watching, is hitting the big 2-0 this year. Is this how Greg felt when Ghostbusters turned 30?? Father Time is the most cruel of them all. I’ve been thinking of going back and rewatching some of my favorite 2001 movies, potentially reviewing them here on Cortex. Do you have any favorite 2001 flicks that I should check out?

By the way, have you seen the cast that Rian Johnson is stacking up for Knives Out 2?! The first film already had an immaculate cast, and when it was revealed that the sequel would focus on an entirely new group of people + Daniel Craig, I was super interested to see in which direction it would go. Kathryn Hahn, Janelle Monáe, Dave Bautista, Edward Norton, and Leslie Odom Jr.?? I mean COME ON. I’d buy a ticket to watch that cast make sandwiches together, let alone be in a Knives Out movie. 

You will probably have to unglue me from the screen when Knives Out 2 releases, tbh. Hopefully I will still have my youth by then, as I feel like I sprouted a few gray hairs when I read that Spy Kids is 20 years old in 2021. Anyway, have a good one folks, I’ll catch you another time.

      1. You must be below the average age here if Shrek was a kids' movie for you. I think most of us were in our 20's when that came out.
      2. Knives Out 2 is easily near the top of my most-anticipated movies list.
      3. Other movies turning 20 this year include The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, Mulholland Drive, Spirited Away, The Fast and the Furious, The Royal Tenenbaums, Training Day, Ocean's Eleven

      Kathryn Hahn is going to steal the show. She's perfect for a Knives Out movie.

      Loving that Rian Johnson is making this a series. The first was one of my favorite movies from recent years.
