Hi! I'm Terry J. Aman, and I'm a media packrat. In 2017, I finished transferring hundreds of VHS tapes with material dating back to the 1980s onto 2,500+ discs. Now I'm in the process of finding out what's on all of these things. Welcome to VideoFuzzy, which is both a blog listing the material I'm finding on these discs, and a podcast highlighting the progress I'm making cataloging my VHS-to-DVD transfers, my direct-to-DVD recordings, and commentary on what I've been watching.

Hi! My name is Terry J. Aman and this installment marks my 59th episode of "VideoFuzzy," my twice-monthly progress report on cataloging more than 2,800 VHS transfers and digital recordings. This installment, titled "VideoFuzzy at the Movies: 'Knives Out,'" shifts from my usual cataloging efforts and commentary for a spoiler-free review of "Knives Out," which I have elsewhere described as one of the best movies I have seen in years, possibly ever.

"Knives Out" features Christopher Plummer as Harlan Thrombey, 85, prolific author of murder mysteries, his lifeless body discovered early one morning by his maid. The case is initially ruled a suicide, but Daniel Craig as world famous private investigator Benoit Blanc isn't so sure, and a seething pack of would-be heirs -- family, staff and companions -- do little to allay his suspicions!

With endless plot twists, questions of who-knew-what-when and constantly shifting alliances -- all set in a museum-piece mansion riddled with secret passages and twistier than a Rubik's cube -- "Knives Out" comes highly recommended. Go see it. It's completely worth it and one hell of a good time.
