Movie Review: Murder on the Orient Express

I was just barely able to catch Murder on the Orient Express before it left theaters—the 2017 version, directed by Kenneth Branagh (starring Kenneth Branagh, with Kenneth Branagh co-producing). I had read the book earlier this year, even before I heard there was going to be a new adaptation, and so that meant I already knew the answer. To be honest, I mostly went to see “Aaron Burr”.

And…well. I definitely enjoyed it, although the main character’s mustache is ridiculous to the point of distraction. But I’m not sure there was actually enough information presented for a viewer to really crack the case themselves, and that’s something that’s at least theoretically possible in the novel (though very difficult).

Movie Review: Coco

If someone said “Pixar movie based on Dia de Muertos / Dia de los Muertos”, the thing you’d imagine probably isn’t that far off from Coco.

Movie Review: The Shape of Water

I wouldn’t have thought you could make an artsy R-rated Cold War merman heist romance, but I guess if anyone was going to do it it would be Guillermo del Toro. If you plan to watch this movie, be prepared for all six of those aspects to show up.
