What better way to celebrate Thanksgiving than with movies about dysfunctional families and the legacy of colonialism? Rian Johnson’s crowd-pleasing whodunit Knives Out is first on the chopping block this week—can it live up to its star-studded cast and the promise of a throwback mystery? Johnson’s film is followed by a sequel to the movie that launched a thousand memes and childhood singalongs: Frozen 2. Elsa, Anna, Olaf, and Kristoff are back for another adventure, this time in an enchanted forest that contains mysterious secrets from Elsa and Anna’s past. Wade and Kevin dig into the songs, the ice powers, and the story of the follow-up to one of the biggest animated films of the decade.
