MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers)

MOTOE starts today here in Germany. I saw a late afternoon 70 mm screening in English and the cinema was surprisingly full. I watched the trailer but I refused to read any reviews. I was familiar with the story since I'd read the book and I know two of the older movies. So no surprise here. When I f...

Re: The Lawsuits Thread

I wouldn't be surprised if TMG is using the foreclosure as leverage to force him into negotiations since throwing dirt is indeed damaging his reputation but hasn't got them anywhere in court so far. His legal team had to see this coming and I can not imagine them sitting around being totally unprepa...

Re: The Lawsuits Thread

I don't see how throwing dirt will help those so-called managers in court. They obviously try to damage Johnny's reputation with stuff that already didn't help AH. At the same time they show they have no respect for their client's privacy. This should be a warning to all of their other clients - if ...

Re: The Lawsuits Thread

All the recent headlines make it sound like he is broke. :bored: I'd rather doubt that. He might have spent a lot for traveling and his employees. But all the money he used to buy art and real estate is still there and most likely the value of those items has increased over the years. The numbers on...

Re: The Lawsuits Thread

I think caused by the divorce he's undergoing some kind of general detox. The divorce might have caused him to take a closer look on everything else that's going on in his life. I picture him sitting on Ibiza during the summer and turning every stone (or have every stone turned). After the summer he...

The majority of the cars over here are manuals. Whenever I drive an automatic It's really boring because I don't know what to do with my right hand. :lol:

I haven't read most of what's listed above. I know a little bit of Chandler and Fleming, but I've never read them in English. I had to google Damon Runyon because I had never heard that name before. :fear:

Hm. I've read them all and I wasn't offended. OK, some clichés here and there, but nothing too bad for my taste.

Re: Mortdecai Question #8: Why This Movie?

Those books had acquired some kind of cult status in the 70s and 80s. I remember him saying in one of the interviews that the books belong to the few that really made him laugh out loud while reading them. I can see Johnny fall in love with Charlie and wondering why there had been never an attempt t...

Re: Mortdecai Question #6 - Book vs. Movie

I've read the trilogy first and I think those books are much more focused on straight storytelling. The first book for example (Don't point that thing at me) starts with the meeting with Martland (similar to the one we know from the movie when Charlie 'offers' him some nasty and cheap Port, but minu...

Re: Mortdecai Question #6 - Book vs. Movie

As an American I do feel that our society is being continually dumbed down, and I should have been more sensitive to the fact that not everyone would understand what I was trying to say. Oh no, I'm sorry, that's not what I wanted to say. I wanted to say that we here on ONBC are not exactly the aver...

Re: Mortdecai Question #6 - Book vs. Movie

I mentioned language above and I'd like to come back to that. So much of the book's charm lies in Charlie's verbal acrobatics. He is always speaking to the reader or commenting to someone, and the words he uses, and the multitude of references and allusions and the general "I-am-a-d*amn-sight-...

Re: Mortdecai Question #4: Good Ole' Jock

Based on his description in the books I think Movie Jock looked almost a bit too good, even with the scars they had shaved on Bettany's skull and the contact lens, but I can't say I missed the one fang that belongs to Book Jock. I fully agree with Don Wells: he stole the film. I've seen Paul Bettany...
