I've seen no reviews and I have no idea if I'm wasting my time.  It's the saturday night release on HBO.

I read one review and it wasn't positive. It's on my watch list. I'm a big Agatha Christie fan and enjoyed the recent Murder on the Orient Express. However I think that David Suchet is the definitive Hercule Poirot.

I watched it. Kenneth Branagh produced and directed it. This is not his first foray into the genre. It looks to me like he wants to give a broader definition to Poirot. A third film with him as Poirot  is in the pipeline.

Just look at that mustache.

This movie at least explained the mustache.

I watched Good Will Hunting last night on Netflix.  I had never seen it.  I enjoyed it but it had some holes in the storyline.  

I love Robin.  He was a beautiful human being, a sad loss.  This scene was brilliant.

I was an amazing scene for sure and unfortunately, not that difficult to communicate for Robin Williams.  He was a brilliant actor and person.

Hair doesn’t grow from scar tissue because the follicles are gone. I’m not convinced that mustache comes from the area around those scars.

I know, right? You know what else? Some guys are just plain weird.

We were between Death on the Nile and Ride the Eagle, both on Hulu right now. We chose Ride the Eagle. Less involved movie we thought since it was late and we were tired. Made it till about 15 mins left. We will finish tonight. It was good.

They put the “waaa” in wax, those two. 

I suppose you can see the bicycle motif in the design on your left. He is the owner of a local bike shop. The image is from 2015.

Does he still wear an artful beard? 

I don't know, I don't go over there much any more. At far as I saw, he didn't wear his beard in such an ornate fashion. If my recollection is true, he braided it on occasion. It would be a serious time suck to wear a beard like that every day.

You're looking a bit like a detective yourself these days.

I read the book a month or two ago in preparation for the movie. I'll probably watch it this weekend.  I liked MotOE (despite differences from the book), so will likely enjoy this one as well.
