Sacrifices the heart and humour of Christie's Poirot with brooding, pointlessly gory and ultimately boring results.
oh this was so so fantastic. ive always been a fan of the books and the old tv show, so its difficult for me to open up to new actors. and after all the bad things out there about the recent orient express movie, i was ready to be disappointed. instead, im extremely intrigued. the director has done a FANTASTIC job! the show is simply beautiful so far. UPDATE: just finished, and wow. had me guessing till the last minute. even pulled an all nighter to finish it just because i couldnt stop thinking about it.
A darker, brooding take on Agatha Christie. Malkovich's Poirot comes off as much more human, though the genius and attendant arrogance is still present. Overall, it's a welcome change from the Christie adaptations of the past. Very chilling.
I won't say this is bad, but I'll say that probably most Agatha Christie's fans won't like it unless they're ok with a more somber take on the story and a more brooding, humorless Poirot
I liked Malkovich's portrayal of Poirot. It felt a little more human. If I remember correctly most portrayals of Poirot simply make him unlikeably arrogant. I was also very surprised at Rupert Grint's performance. I basically did not recognize him visually or by his acting until I confirmed in the credits that it was in fact him. The story is as is expected - a false/potentially strong-looking suspect, then the real perpetrator is revealed. I recognized who was which almost immediately. This is not necessarily a bad thing. The best part of who-dun-its is usually the how and why and the discovery/reasoning of the same by the detective.
After a hot day outside, there’s nothing better than getting inside and cooling down, all while watching something on the tv. Luckily for all of us, there is plenty to chose from and more and more series are coming our way. So turn on your AC, get yourself a cold glass of your favorite drink, sit back and enjoy.
Lately, I’ve been re-watching a lot of tv shows I used to watch growing up. Even though it makes perfect sense, I was really surprised how different was my point of view now, than it was ten or fifteen years ago. Suddenly, my favorite characters aren’t the favorites anymore. Besides, I’ve forgotten tons of what was happening, that’s why I had so much fun re-watching everything. I highly suggest you do the same thing!
I am Sophie and this is my website.
A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.
But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈
I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…
I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.
Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
