WEEKEND BOX OFFICE:  Frozen II repeats atop the chart with 85.3MM on a mere 35 percent decline, and it might prove to be stronger if the estimates overestimated the snowstorm in parts of the country.  Knives Out places with 27MM, and 41.7MM since opening last week; the calendar shapes up well for it to find legs on good word of mouth.  Ford v Ferrari shows with 13.2MM on a mere 16 percent drop, which makes 100MM domestic a realistic target (which won't hurt come awards season). A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood also showed legs, taking the fourth slot with 11.8MM on a mere 11 percent drop; it's hard to judge this one, given budget estimates between 25MM and 45MM.  The debut of Queen & Slim rounds out the Top Five with 11.6MM (15.7MM since opening last week), which should be fine against a 20MM budget.

FORD v FERARRI has been needled as a "Dad movie," and perhaps it is, but a very good one.  Sports movies are usually about characters overcoming obstacles, and here the characters hold your interest. While most of the focus will be on Christian Bale's performance and transformation into Ken Miles, and Matt Damon's less flashy, but skillful turn as Carroll Shelby, Catriona Belfe gets the most out of her supporting role as Mollie Miles -- and without her, the audience would be much less investsed in Bale's character.  Plus, James Burton's cover of "Pork Salad Annie" gives me chills.

KNIVES OUT: I may never entirely forgive Rian Johnson for The Last Jedi (even if I'm always a softie for Star Wars), but he scores here with a welcome, original property in the form of a genre that's laregly disappeared from the big screen: the whodunit.  It's a semi-comic homage to the Agatha Christie adaptations that I saw with my Mom when I was a kid that never slides into parody.  Ana de Armas, who I quite liked in Blade Runner 2049, is at the center of the filmand could be accused of playing it a little too straight even for the straight role.  But the rest of the large and talented cast is having so much fun that you can't help but join in, even when they occasionally overdo it (looking at you, Daniel Craig).
