Murder on the Orient Express Question #9 the New Movie

Assuming you’ve been looking forward to the movie, what’s driven your enthusiasm? Would you be as likely to see this movie if Johnny Depp was not in it?

Murder on the Orient Express Question #6 the Era?

In my part of the country, the Union Pacific Railroad played a major role in history. The Durham Museum is housed in Omaha's Union Station from the railroad's heyday and there are a couple of railroad museums in Council Bluffs, Iowa across the river. When touring the old rail cars and artifacts in t...

Murder on the Orient Express Question #6 the Era?

I guess when it comes to Romeo and Juliet and West Side Story, I think they are similar stories but I certainly don't see West Side Story's gang wars being the same thing as a family feud in Shakespeare's day. If you want to stretch analogies, Dances With Wolves could be construed as a Romeo and Jul...

Murder on the Orient Express Question #7: Stereotypes

In our politically correct day and age where someone is ready to take offense at any minor thing, probably not. But I think the writing would suffer, I think the story would be less graphic, and it would become bland. With the stereotypes the story has a sort of cartoon-like largeness that couldn't ...

Murder on the Orient Express Question #6 the Era?

Do you think this story, either book or movie, is forever set in the 1930s?

Re: The Lawsuits Thread

Not sure how to show this correctly: http://deadline.com/2017/11/johnny-depp-houses-foreclosure-management-company-lawsuit-1202202669/ Of course, it’s been done just when MOTOE is opening in the US. If anyone can glean anything positive from this, I would be ever so grateful to hear it. Depressing ...

Murder on the Orient Express Question #5: Who Done It?

I watched the 70s movie before I read the book so I knew who done it before I read the book. My mind was more on the way the characters and story lines corresponded to the movie. I think I learned a big lesson about not spoiling a good book by watching the movie first.

Murder on the Orient Express Question #4: Fun and Games

When the animated Rango movie was coming out, the website that went with that movie was great fun! I remember playing the game over and over, downloading the screensaver, etc. and chatting with other Zone members about how much fun we were having. I haven't looked at the Murder On the Orient Express...

Murder on the Orient Express Question #3 Close Quarters

One thing about the Orient Express, the travelers mostly were from the same social status (a more well-to-do group) and there was always their own compartment to go back to for alone time. I think that would make the three days tolerable for me, always having a place to retreat to when I wanted.

Murder on the Orient Express Question #3 Close Quarters

"For three days these people, these strangers to one another, are brought together. They sleep and eat under one roof, they cannot get away from each other. At the end of three days they part, they go their separate ways, never, perhaps, to see each other again." -- M Poirot, Murder on th...

Murder on the Orient Express Question #2 Good Idea to Make a New Film?

I really don't know what Branagh meant. Is he implying that somehow the previous movie or the book itself was lacking? I saw the 1970s movie before I read the book and I loved it. It seemed very true to the time in which the story was set, the characters and actors were very good. The only problem I...

Murder on the Orient Express Question #1: The Mystery of Mystery Stories

I typically have thought of myself as a non-mystery reader, but I am addicted to Anne Perry's books, so I guess I have to re-evaluate. It helps to have watched Downton Abbey since the stories are set in Victorian times with butlers and the green door, servants and proper rules for Society. I have re...

Happy birthday to ONBC!

I have been around since book #1 and I have read and participated every book discussion since, but I must admit I have probably forgotten more than I remember and I didn't understand very much of Parallel Worlds when I read it :hypnotic: . There have been a couple of books I didn't care for at all a...
