Re: Bad Press re Johnny appearing in Fantastic Beasts

MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers)

Always interesting to read more reviews. I've only had time to see MotOE once so far, but I enjoyed it. It's my favorite Christie book (and I've read all but a few) and I love the 1975 film. I like Branagh a lot as both actor and director, but I had trouble seeing him as Poirot. I can understand wh...

Murder on the Orient Express Question #21: Final Thoughts

I saw the 1970s movie before I read the book, so I knew the solution to the mystery before I read the book. For me, that spoiled the book. The story itself is clever and it provided a wealth of tidbit material which I enjoyed very much, even if my schedule did not allow me to do as much research per...

Murder on the Orient Express Question #20: Favorite Quotes?

There are lots of notes and underlinings in my book, but most of those were to keep track of clues and make note of words I needed to look up. :dunce: However I did find this one: " ... if you wish to catch a rabbit you put a ferret into the hole , and if the rabbit is there -- he runs. That is...

Murder on the Orient Express Question #18: More Christie in your future

I doubt if I will read any more of her books. I want more character development in my stories. While the characters in Murder On The Orient Express each had some details given about them, I didn't feel a connection to any of them or have any emotional investment in the solution to the crime. I felt ...

Murder on the Orient Express #16: Mrs. Hubbard - Who Is She?

I am still pondering this question. Mrs Hubbard is an important character in the story, but the book and movie characters are quite different. The book Hubbard was over the top, almost a cartoon-like exaggeration, while the movie Hubbard was still visible she placed herself center stage in a quieter...

Murder on the Orient Express Question #17 Arbuthnot

Colonel Arbuthnot versus Doctor Arbuthnot. What changed and what remained the same for you? What’s your take on updating of this character? (If you’ve already seen the movie, you are likely to have even more to say.) (Nov

Re: Bad Press re Johnny appearing in Fantastic Beasts

If we want to support Johnny, I suggest that we all stop reading stories about Amber. The more times we search for her, the more stories we read about her, the more times we respond to something she has said or something that has been written about her accusations, the more we support her, the more ...

Murder on the Orient Express Question #15: Christie's Legacy

I may not be the best person to comment on this because I don't know Christie's work in general, but I thought that the new Orient Express movie handled her story well. The period remained the same and the frame of the story remained true. The changes really aren't that big, but updating the 70s mov...

Re: Bad Press re Johnny appearing in Fantastic Beasts

I can't read the negative stuff, just can't do it. I am very troubled by how easy it has become to crucify a person just by calling them out. Some seem to believe that it is acceptable to savage a person's life -- because they did something wrong. That is never, ever, okay in my book. Don't want an...

Murder on the Orient Express Question #14 The Many Faces of Hercule Poirot

The 1970s move version of Murder On the Orient Express is actually the only other Agatha Christie film I have seen and I have not watched the television versions of Poirot. For me, Branagh created a wonderful character, but I have little to compare him to.

Murder on the Orient Express #13: Poirot's Decision

It works in fiction, and it satisfies are certain desire for justice in the reader. I am not sure about real life. There was a case in Omaha a few years ago where the lead crime scene investigator was convicted of planting evidence and went to prison. (Two innocent men spent a long time in jail beca...
