Good Time.

Yeah, well...not my coup of tea here. I like the overall aesthetics, framing and the frantic pace, but the script is garbage.
A letdown.

Loved, loved, loved Murder on the Orient Express. Beautifully atmospheric, and holy shit, I have never noticed how great of an actor Kenneth Branagh is before. He is AMAZING in this. I have seen other adaptations of this story before, but this blew those away, and a lot of it is because of how he brings Poirot to life.

I really like this article about some of the technical aspects of the film: http://www.studiodaily.com/2017/11/hari ... t-express/

I think the most important thing mentioned is this:

Quote:
The 65mm format worked in concert with film grammar that featured fewer cuts. Zambarloukos estimates the film has an average of 150 edits per reel, a fraction of what’s considered normal in current cinema.


You can really feel this in the way the film breathes; it's like it's ripped from another era. It's still, patient, and controlled - much like Poirot himself. I found it very refreshing. What a wonderful movie.

Loved the visuals and most of the film. Didn't like the ending

Really?! I thought the ending was beautiful. It got me choked up. I though Branagh’s take had a totally different tone and meaning than, say, Lumet’s version. It’s an interesting contrast.

I just thought that the ending was a bit 'Meh' - I am excited for the next installment though

I thought this was going to be about science and nutrition. I was wrong.

I'm sure someone has already made this observation in here, but the score in "Dunkirk" is fucking ridiculously overbearing. All sense of drama and scale gets lost because it one fucking tense piece of music after another. Ugh!

Guys, I got 4 10 year olds sleeping over tonight and need a movie suggestion. Thinking of Goomies, Jaws, or Raiders of the Lost Ark. Any others?
