Austinn Says Hats Off:

Just saw ‘Murder on the Orient Express’: Freight of the Furious. conclusion: 9/10. “It’s never the person you most suspect. It’s also never the person you least suspect, since anyone with half a brain would suspect them the most”. Kenneth Branagh does well as the lead actor and director. The writing is very quick, clever, and entertaining throughout. The performances are great across the board although with so many big names, some people seem under-used. The score and cinematography were also very good, so I really don’t have any major complaints. Very entertaining overall. #whodunit #laborofHercule #unsportsmanlikeconductor #meansandlocomotive #everyonehasbaggage #thatdoesntstopafoamer #madtracksfurysnowed #dysfunctionjunction #trainedkiller


Kelvin Says Hats Off:

Just saw “Murder on the Orient Express: Reaper by the Dozen.” Conclusion: 8/10. Lavishly crafted, Murder on the Orient Express is an at-times dazzling watch. The ensemble cast is an impressive bunch and they do not disappoint. Kenneth Branagh directs and stars as the acclaimed inspector Hercule Poirot and he gives his character more than enough to do. A worse movie wouldn’t have allowed his know-it-all character room to grow. To the movie’s credit, he is confronted by a moral quandary that his character must wrestle with. However, I wish more of that moral depth would have been extended to the other characters. They’re an interesting bunch – even given the little we know about them. I don’t want to get spoilery so I’ll just say that as the movie unfolds, I think it’s clear that there is room for more probing of the passengers’ personalities and motivations. Visually, it’s a rich and tasteful watch. I found the ambiance to be engrossing and engaging. I only with the engagement would have been a little stronger with the characters’ lives. #HelloMOTOE #RatchettJob #TimeToPayThePfeiffer #TicketToDied #InspectorBragIt #TrainMan #TracksOfLife #FrighteningMacQueen #JohnnyDeath

This movie kinda came out of nowhere for me. Didn’t know much about it, and only saw 1 trailer for it, so I wasn’t sure what to expect coming into it. I was pleasantly surprised by this film! The cast worked very well together and had good chemistry desire their being so many of them. I really enjoyed watching the story develop and was eager to find out “who done it”. I really liked Kenneth Branagh as the main character, and kudos to him for being both the lead actor and director! Tough to pull off no doubt. My only real knock is the introduction of all the characters was a little rushed in the beginning and I wasn’t sure who was significant in the story until much later, but it wasn’t that bad. Overall though I really enjoyed this film and recommend it to anyone who is a fan of murder mystery or just wants a good mystery to try to solve. Hope theirs another in the works!
