  • Re: Crooked House Movie

    I Watched Crooked House lastnight, I thought it was very Faithful apart from the Son constantly asking Charles about "Screwing" his sister, surely that could have been asked in a different way, I can't say I thought the bad language however mild added anything, Glenn Close and the Girl who played Josephine and the Actress's who played the Daughters-in-law were particularly Good I thought, I would watch it again if it was on and that was the best there was on, I don't think I would buy it on DVD though, I would have preferred the language to be more like Agatha Christie wrote, 8/10.
  • Re: why do u like agatha christie's books?

    I like Agatha Christie Books because most are very Good stories, Most of The Plots are very good, The Books are easy to read in the main and The Books help you see things different ways and have taught me a lot and Cheered me up when I have needed it.

  • Re: NEW Murder on the Orient Express

    Wow!, I am glad I have decided to wait until the Film is premiered, I am not able to go to the Cinema but might have bought the DVD when it came out, I assume it is too near Christmas for it to be out before then, Thank goodness, If I am wrong I just hope a relative doesn't buy it for me, I am not even curious now, I agree Poirot would not put up with Racism, I really can't understand why the makers of Adaptations are so hell-bent on making Dramatic changes, It is an insult to the writer of whatever they are adapting in this case Agatha Christie, It is an insult to the fans of Agatha Christie and did any non-fans who go to see it a disservice and doesn't put the Directors amd Adaptors in a good light either, I agree with you I hope Brannagh doesn't choose to do Death On The Nile next, The Characters are brilliant and don't need tampering with nor does the excellent plot, after that Chronologically is Appointment With Death which refers to Murder On The Orient Express, I wonder how KB will meddle with that?
  • Re: What Poirot novels do you think would be better suited to Miss Marple?

    I Don't Think By The Pricking of My Thumbs could have anybody but Tommy And Tuppence but I do think if Ariadne was with him N or M would have been good with Poirot and If The Lawrence from the JH Adaptation of Nemesis had been a recurring Character with Miss Marple N or M would be good for her there has to be a Male sleuth and a Feale sleuth so if not Lawrence maybe Miss Marple could team up with Race.
