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

I think the modernization is inevitable for the characters, not sure about updating the time and storylines. While I love the period feeling of her stories (people just don't act and talk like that anymore), I think to keep her a hit with younger audiences, movie makers will need to update things a ...

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

I've enjoyed all the movie Poirots, although I haven't been able to see Suchet's or Alfred Molina's versions. I think it's fun to see different actors recreate the same character and develop their own quirks. Poirot would certainly be a fun guy to play and it looks like Branagh thoroughly enjoyed th...

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

In fiction it works well. In real life, not so much. In the book (and movie), it was easy to see that justice hadn't been carried out on Ratchett/Casetti, although it never really says why. Some technicality, I think. It also never says why everyone is so sure of his guilt. But I don't believe in mo...

Murder on the Orient Express Question #11: The Solution of the Murder (spoilers)

There are always a lot of characters and subplots in murder mysteries...to me, it can make the story more interesting or more confusing, depending on the writing. I thought Christie kept everyone's story and character consistent throughout, making it easy to follow. Of course, there is always that :...

MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS Updates

When we left the cinema on Sunday (after my third viewing!) someone I was with said 'wouldn't it be fun to get the exact same cast to do Death on the Nile'. Johnny could easily pull off being a completely different person. :highfive: They all could! :snoopydances: But I suppose that would be wishfu...

MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS Updates

I guess this: http://variety.com/2017/film/news/murder-on-the-orient-express-sequel-death-on-the-nile-1202620018/ means that the studio is really pleased with the movie :) Yes, the film set up the sequel rather well. I wonder who will be in that cast? :perplexed: Here is the article from Variety: F...

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

Agatha Christie's family believes that her legacy into the 21st Century will remain if the central story is retained but the characters shift more toward present day looks and actions. This could explain some of the changes we've seen in the current movie. As more Christie movies are being planned, ...

MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers)

This is interesting - Mark Kermode is a quite influential film critic in the UK - has a slot on BBC news. He is often critical of Johnny - he has said it's because he thinks Johnny is such a brilliant actor he shouldn't waste his talent doing Pirates films - I am sure you are all familiar with him....
