THE 2017 MOVIE COUNTDOWN

THE GOAL FOR 2018: 200 MOVIES WATCHED BY MIDNIGHT NEW YEAR'S EVE!  (AFTER TOPPING OUT AT 194 in 2017)

CAN HE DO IT?

​​THE WEBER MOVIE COUNTDOWN

This film starts out marvelously as our lead character, famed detective Hercule Poirit (played by Kenneth Branagh), in front of a large crowd of angry zealots in Jerusalem, figures out among a priest, a rabbi and an iman, which one stole priceless artifacts from a temple. Despite Branaugh’s delightful portrayal, the film goes off the rails after the murder of one Mr. Ratched, played by Johnny Depp.  For starters, there are many suspects but we nary get to know any of them.  And by the time the killer or killers is revealed, we hardly care because we’ve hardly met them.  I have to say I was bored by this film.  Loved the original one made in the 70s – HATED this one.  Why was this made?



SHOULD TLA SEE THIS: only if she was the actual murderer

 

Last year we hit 200 movies watched.  This year our sights are set on at LEAST 225.  That's a heck of a lot of movies to watch in a given year.  Follow our progress all year long and see if we don't lose our minds on the journey!  While I write the longwinded review, my wife, the lovely Alice (aka TLA), gets just one word to sum up.  Hers is the tougher job.
