First day of my staycation, and we went to see “Murder on the Orient Express” at the Alamo Drafthouse. It’s always fun to see a movie there because they show the funniest stuff on the screen before the movie starts. For this movie, there were some choice clips of old Agatha Christie-related shows and movies. In the photo above is a Japanese anime. It looked pretty cool, actually!
The actual movie was just okay. It started off great, but kind of bogged-down and I didn’t like the overall tone. The first part (in Israel) was clever, funny, and had a quick pace, and I was looking forward to the whole movie being like that. But the main story was overly dramatic and humorless. It was a shame because the cast was stellar, the cinematography was beautiful, and it is a classic story. Oh well…
I hope you had a nice day!
