    Murder on the Orient Express

    ★★★

    Kenneth Branagh has gathered together a fine cast for this latest remake of the Agatha Christie thriller. The train is full of Oscar nominees and winners and Josh Gad. The scenery is beautiful but its hard to tell how much would of been actually on location. The movie is just a bit flat, it wasn't as riveting as the original and director Branagh has tried to add comedy into it when its not really required, the only thing funny was his moustache. Great cast but nothing really worth the trip on board this train.

    ★★½

    I am quite surprised that this got a cinema release, after all it just had the feel of a TV movie that would of been more at home on the Hallmark channel. The lead actor I have never seen before and was ok in the role. Jackson Rathbone overacted throughout and should just stick to his Percy Jackson movies. The cast was rounded out by Billy Zane, Rutger Hauer and Lindsey (Bionic Woman) Wagner. Unless you are really wanting to see a probably not that accurate story of the biblical character then its best to avoid this.

    ★★★½

    This was one of the better films from this type of hand held camera genre,It was quite well done by Derek Lee and Clif Prowse,these guys probably did not have much of a budget but managed to make a tense horror that for the first half people might think they have been duped but believe me it builds up and then is pretty fast paced,like the locales also,will look for future entries from these two film-makers.

    ★★★★

    I spent this past weekend watching a lot of the Academy nominated films and this Independent film deserves any accolades it gets. This film about life in the projects in Orlando, Florida is great on all levels with the acting performance of Willem Dafoe as the Motel Manager earning him a Best Actor nomination. The little girl Brooklynn Prince is very good considering its her first major film role. Beautifully filmed by Sean Baker whos previous film "Tangerine" I really enjoyed. Highly recommended
