    Murder on the Orient Express

    ★★★½

    As a big fan of murder-mysteries (yes, even on repeat-viewings) this one has always left me a bit cold. It's still entertaining and I like the cast but it doesn't make the most of its atmosphere or interrogations with the various suspects. Finney is pretty great but I have to admit that I have always preferred Ustinov.

    ★★★★½

    Well, rock my world and then some, this was absolutely fantastic. Enjoyed every second. Didn't thought this was pretentious or that Carrey was an asshole (debatable) during filming. I actually found this incredibly moving & thought-provoking at times. The dad stuff always gets me and that moment when the woman from make up started crying after Carrey had the fight with his fictional father..wowsy, I had to pause that shit.

    ★★★½

    This was fun! Especially on the big screen. Excels in exciting & dazzling visuals that manage to distract from the lackluster action bits. Cumberbatch tries to do a minor Tony Stark which is fine but of course, good old Benedict ain't no Robert Downey. Liked the jokes in between and I respect the fact that Derrickson & Co. decided to do something slightly different but kinda noble for the finale. On the other hand this feels like textbook origin storytelling at certain times which makes for a very safe but at times boring movie.
