    Murder on the Orient Express

    ★★½

    This deserves a good adaptation, but I’m not sure this is it. Feels like a big-budget made-for-TV movie. It’s a challenge with such a big ensemble cast, but there are some odd performances in the bunch. The cinematography deserves credit for trying something that feels fresh, but I’m not sure it really works. Hard to really judge the ending when I had already read the book, but this take on it feels strange.

    Also, what’s with Poirot talking multiple times to...a photo of…his ex?

    "So metaphorical"

    I don't know if I've seen a film where the director was so in control of the story. Every detail worked together to advance the story.

    Why are there so many shots of Chris Evans doing push-ups? Does he want them for his personal reel?

    Beautifully shot, but devastating to watch.
